In My Mailbox




Hi everyone! Sorry this is a bit late (yeah I know- understatement), my cat just died (she had FIV, basically the cat version of AIDS, which she was apparently born with.) and I completely didn't feel up to posting. I promise there will be minimum moping in this post :P






Recieved for Review:

You Wish by Mandy Hubbard (TBR August 5th, 2010 from Razorbill Publishing) (finished already)
The Secrets of April, May and June by Robin Benway (TBR August 3rd, 2010 from Razorbill Publishing)
Thanks so much to Razorbill Publishing for giving me complementary copies of these two great books for review!
Library:

From 2 different libraries... I know it seems like a lot, but I returned all the other books I had out, soooo.... it evens out, right? *cough*
Kitchen Princess Vol. 1 (Manga)
The Heart is Not A Size by Beth Kephart
Me, the Missing and the Dead by Jenny Valentine (one of my favorite authors)
Margherita Dolce Vita by Stefano Benni (I'm in love with this imprint, Europa Editions!)
Solanin by Asano Inio (Manga I've been trying to get FOREVER)
The Nature of Jade by Deb Caletti (I really haven't liked Caletti's work at all, but I'm giving her another chance)
The Moving Toyshop by Edmund Crispin
A Good Day for Love Letters- George Asakura (not sure how I feel about the art)
Gentleman Prefer Blondes- Anita Loos
Cooking With Fernet Branca- James Patterson-Hamilton
Gourmet Rhapsody- Muriel Barbery
The Queen of the Tambourine- Jane Gardam
Kimmie66- Aaron Alexovich (I wish this imprint hadn't closed, Minx was so great!)
Emily the Strange: The Lost Days-Rob Reger (I have no idea what this is, it just looked cool. Is it a series?)
The Ghosts of Ashbury High- Jaclyn Moriarty (YAY! I love this series!)
The Evolution Man, or How I Ate My Father- Roy Lewis (Weird, I know :P)
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close- Jonathan Foer
The Line- Teri Hall (I never got to finish it)
Sorry- Gail Jones
Gimme A Call- Sarah Mylnowski
Wonderland- Tommy Kovac and Sonny Leiw (Pretty.... *gape*)
JPod- Douglas Coupland (love it even more than I thought I would, considering I'm not a fan of the pessimistic, vaguely pretentious Generation X stuff)
*deep breath* Even more than I thought I'd checked out.
Bought:
All but 2 of these (the one on top and the one on the bottom) are from a used book store. I got them for only 50 cents each down in Mississippi! *dance* Oh, and I got the Great Gatsby too, but I forgot to dig it out from under my bed (books are everywhere under there in my room, as I just got a new bookshelf and have yet to stock it). It's scary under there.
Dr. Slump Vol. 1 by Akira Toriyama (my favorite manga ever! The art is so simple but genius. Toriyama is great.)
The Taker- J. M. Steele
A Farewell to Arms- Ernest Hemingway
Great Short Works of Mark Twain
The Picture of Dorian Gray and Other Writings- Oscar Wilde
Pygmalion and 3 Other Plays- George Bernard Shaw
Pygmalion and My Fair Lady (in too horrible condition to show: my dog got a hold of it! Luckily I had finished it on the trip back from Texas :P)
The Great Gatsby- F. Scott Fitzgerald (I like it much more than I expected to.)
***********888
Finally done with the list! I got a lot of great books this week, and didn't even spend that much money. A lot of these I've been trying to track down, and finally did, which is awesome :) Mostly mangas that weren't at B&N or either of my libraries. So, what was in you mailbox this week?
