In My Mailbox 11

In My Mail Box is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren!

So I got a TON of books this week. I bought some at a local bookstore, some I ordered online showed up and I bought a bag full at a local library sale. Oh, and I also got some in the mail that I won from contests and I bought 4 more at a local goodwill. I am excited to show everyone what I got, so lets get to it!

I got the following 6 books from the online bookstore, bookcloseouts.com They were running a sale where children's books (including YA) were 99 cents! So I stocked up :)
2. Love is Hell - Various Authors
5. The President's Daughter - Ellen Emerson White
6. White House Autumn - Ellen Emerson White

I picked up the following three books from a local bookstore. I went in to buy Venom, but then found the other two while I was there. Touched by an Alien was a used copy for $3 (but it looks like it is brand new) and Elsewhere was on sale for $2.99.
1. Touched by an Alien (Katherine "Kitty" Kat #1) - Gini Koch *read my review
2. Venom (Elemental Assassin #3) - Jennifer Estep
3. Elsewhere - Gabrielle Zevin

I got the next 13 books from a local library sale. It was $4 per bag and I didn't quite fill a paper bag, so all of these costs me a total of... $3. How awesome is that!?
1. The Great Gatsby - F. Scott Fitzgerald
2. The Mark of Zorro - Johnston McCulley
3. Werehunter - Mercedes Lackey
4. Middlesex - Jeffery Eugenides
5. Queen of the Slayers - Nancy Holder
6. Life After Genius - M. Ann Jacoby
7. Forever - Judy Blume
8. Departures - Lorna J. Cook
10. Die a Little - Megan Abbott
11. Benighted - Kit Whitfield
12. Where the Heart Is - Billie Letts
13. Feed - M.T. Anderson *Read my Review

So, I got these two in the mail this week as well - I won them both. Hex Hall is from Cynthia at A Blog About Nothing and Trash I won from Random Buzzers.
1. Hex Hall (Hex Hall #1) - Rachel Hawkins *Read My Review
2. Trash - Andy Mulligan

The final set of books I picked up at a local goodwill. I got all 4 for a grand total of 99 cents.
1. Jurassic Park - Michael Crichton
2. The Kite Runner - Khaled Hosseini
3. The Time Traveler's Wife - Audrey Niffenegger
4. The Outsiders - S.E. Hinton


So, what do you think of my loot? Have you read any of them? If so, what did you think?

The Kite Runner is amazing.

Also, I kind of want to check out that 99 cent sale, but can't justify buying more books online :-P

Have fun enjoying your latest editions!

Nice haul! I love when bookcloseouts.com has a sale. They had a great Black Friday one last year. I bought a ton :)

Enjoy your new books! Venom was so good.
