In My Mailbox (4)

In My Mailbox was started by Kristi over at The Story Siren and all you have to do is post about what books you received that week by mail, library, or store.

I'm pretty pleased with the books I acquired this past week and I absolutely cannot wait to start reading them.

I picked up the fourth book in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series earlier this week so that I could have it on hand when I finished some of my other books. I'm really looking forward to seeing where Riordan takes Percy and crew.

Next up is Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane. After watching the movie with Leah, Julie, and Heather a few weekends ago, I really wanted to read the book. Initially, I thought it was a horror book and I'm not a huge fan of feeling like I need to put my book in the freezer when I can't take it and was pleasantly surprised with the movie. I can't wait to start this book, especially because of the book-into-movie accuracy.

To be honest, I haven't read much about The Lonely Hearts Club by Elizabeth Eulberg except that it's a cute book. I adore the homage to The Beatles and if there are mention of them throughout, then how can you go wrong? This book will also count towards the 2010 Debut Author Challenge.

The book that I purchased that I am most looking forward to is Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver. The cover itself is just hauntingly beautiful and I have a feeling the story itself will follow suit. I can't wait to start reading it later today.

I also bought two book related pieces of jewelry that I've been wanting for a while. This ring that says My Thoughts Create My World taken from Megan McCafferty's Jessica Darling series and this book locket with an owl on it.

What books or book related items did you get this week?
