In My Mailbox (And some other stuff)

This is again two week's worth of stuff... I actually started it last week but my camera battery died after the first picture so naturally, I gave up.

Also, I didn't do anything for it, in part because I tend to forget and also because I'm lazy... but my blog turned two this past week, on the 13th. So, wee, here's to another awesome year or so I hope!

In Too Deep by Amanda Grace (Already read- so good!)

I hit up a different Borders when I was over in that area two weeks ago, and last weekend I hit up the one by me one last time, when everything was 90% off... so, yes, awesome haul there. And I am entirely too lazy to list every book, so click the picture to make it big if you want to see them all. 

I also bought two of these at B&N:
Roadside Assistance by Amy Clipston
Instructions for a Broken Heart by Kim Culberston

Annnd this is Toby officially turning 13. Yep, the kid turned 13 this week.  And believe it or not, this, below, is Toby at just 14 weeks when I got him: 
So that was my week, in books, blogoversaries, and beagle birthdays. 

IMM is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren.


  1. Soo many books! And Toby makes a wonderful mannequin! Haha

  2. Wow, you cleaned shop at Borders. I don't think I'd list all of them either. And your Toby... awwww! We just had to put my son's beagle down last month, she was 11. He got her when he was 3, so it was fun watching them grow up together. Hope Toby has many more years.

  3. Oo I'm really excited to read Article 5 and Dark Souls! Can't wait to see what you think. Toby is adorable!!!

  4. Happy 13th birthday Toby and happy 2nd blogoversary :)

    I had planned to go to Borders before it closed but never had the time. The nearest Borders to me has been bought by Books a Million so at least it will still be a bookstore.

    It looks like you got some fantastic books. I am kind of curious about Lie and the Prince of Mist. I liked Vanish too though I prefer Firelight. I felt like Will wasn't around enough in Vanish :(

  5. WOW! You got so many books! I'm so sad about Borders. There was only one close to my house and it closed before all the sales so I wasn't able to go to any!

    The Other Life, Lie, and Hunting Lila look SO good. I'm really jelous!

    Hope you enjoy The Lost Saint!

    Happy reading :)

  6. Very sad about Borders! Had been going there a lot before the sales reached the big numbers, yet I couldn't find much the times I went. Oh well. Nice books!

    My IMM goes up tomorrow, so be sure to stop by!

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    Old Follower :)

  7. I also got Dark Souls! It looks really good ♥ I've heard great things about Always a Witch & Vanish! Lie & Hunting Lila looks good! Great IMM this week! I hope you enjoy them all! My IMM here :)
