In My Mailbox {19}




This week's haul was light!  I'm still trying to make a dent in my TBR pile that's currently filling up my kitchen table.  I'm anticipating some new releases in February as well *cough* Delirium *cough* Cryer's Cross -- so I'm trying to save money where I can for the purchases that I have to have!  I'm anxious to read Across the Universe as well as Other Words for Love, since I've heard nothing but great things.  Let me know if you've read either, would love to hear your opinions on them! Also - don't forget about my Delirium giveaway!! It's signed people!! You know you want it in your mailbox next week!! 


Across the Universe by Beth Revis
Other Words for Love by Lorraine Zago Rosenthal




I attempted to organize my bookshelf this weekend too. I thought I'd post a pic of how far I got. That bottom shelf is still a mess, but those are my "to be read" books that used to sit on my kitchen table.  I'm going to have to start double shelving my books pretty soon!  Btw - my collection may look small, keep in mind it just started last year!

  5. Slow and steady is a great way to pile up books and keep up somewhat with the every growing pile!

  7. I am jealous both these books look fantastic. I think you did a wonderful job on your bookcase, mine looks just like that because I don't have anymore room and the bottom shelf is just a better place. New Follower!

  15. Yay for AtU! I can't wait for your reviews of both of these, G! Enjoy :)

  16. Love your little READ at the top of the shelf! So cute! I loved ATU and will be reading Other Words for Love ASAP!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I have Other Words for Love waiting for me in my TBR. I'm hesitant about AtU, even though everybody loves it, just because I feel like I've overdosed on reading about it in the blogosphere. When I stop seeing it pop up in my feed reader every five seconds, I might give it a shot, and I'll certainly look forward to hearing your thoughts about whether or not I'd like it.

  20. I've heard such great things about both of the books! I'm dying to get my hands on a copy of Other Words for Love. I haven't decided if Across the Universe is really up my alley. Enjoy your books!
