In My Mailbox is a weekly event hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren. Kristi is putting IMM on a little holiday hiatus, so in the meantime I will be participating in Stacking the Shelves. Stacking the Shelves is a weekly event hosted on Tynga’s Reviews. Here we can share what new books we’ve picked up this past week.
I only picked up three things this week from the library 🙂 Seriously, working in a library is amazing, but I always bring more books home than I can ever hope to read. Oh well, I’m helping the circulation 🙂
The Penultimate Peril by Lemony Snicket
I picked up the audiobook. It took forever to come in on hold for me, and I am hoping I can finish this one and the final one for Series Catch Up over at The Book Addict’s Guide.
The End by Lemony Snicket
Cinder by Marisaa Meyer
Another audiobook. Okay, I’m going to be honest here. As much as I love fairytale retellings, science fiction is so not my thing. I don’t even like Star Wars. But I have heard such amazing things about this, and I might get a chance to see the author next year, so I thought I should give this one a try. I’m on disc 2. So far it is good, but it is stressing me out a little. Cinder is a cyborg – but what is a cyborg? Because I thought that cyborgs were like robots that looked like people? Am I so wrong on that? Because Cinder is not acting like a robot, she is acting like a person, albeit with a robotic leg and arm. But still, she has feelings, and a personality. So I am confused. Seriously, help me out folks My experience with science fiction is pretty much nil. I’m totally lame, I know 🙂
So what books did you guys pick up this week?
