In My Mailbox (7/11/10)

In My Mailbox is a meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren.  I love seeing what everyone is reading! 

This week, I went on a book-buying spree!  I bought:

The Luxe series by Anna Godbersen after reading and loving The Luxe. My library only had the first book in the series, so I was forced to buy the rest!

Captivate, the sequel to Need, by Carrie Jones.  

Sizzling Sixteen by Janet Evanovich because I love reading her Stephanie Plum series and laughing out loud.  I just couldn't wait any longer for my library to get it. 

The Girl Who Played with Fire by Stieg Larsson, the sequel to The Girl With the Dragon Tatoo.

And lastly, I got two books in for review:

Mercy Rising: Simple Ways to Practice Justice and Compassion by Amber Robinson, a nonfiction book about ways busy women can help other people.  From the summary:  "It's not that I don't care; I just don't know what to do, you think."  I think that a lot, so I'm looking forward to reading this one!

The Stand-In Groom by Kaye Dacus, a Christian fiction love story. 

That's what's in my mailbox.  It looks like it's going to be a great week here at I'd So Rather Be Reading!


  1. I was thinking on buying The Luxe Box serie too!

  7. I like that cover of The Girl Who Played with Fire you've got. I've pretty much made up my mind I want the series and am waiting to see if my local bookstores will have any offers on the entire set. :-)
