Mailbox Monday (5)

Mailbox Monday was originally started by Marcia of the Printed Page to share all the books we've picked up recently. It currently travels to a new host each month (this month hosted by Mrs Q Book Addict), and I'm linking up with...
Mailbox Monday
Purchased
City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare
After the way City of Fallen Angels ended I can't believe I've waited so long to pick this up. I made sure to pick up the special edition from Barnes & Nobles, which included letters to Jace from his father. Although I did notice Target had their own special edition with a short story instead. But I guess I can find the story online.

Let's Pretend this Never Happened by Jenny Lawson (The Bloggess)
I've been hearing good things about this one, and since my book club at work is reading it this month, it was the perfect time to pick it up. I'm already a few chapters in and so far it's awfully amusing.

Alice I Have Been by Melanie Benjamin
I've been wanting to read this for a while now, and when I saw this bargain priced it was too good of an offer not to pick up. It's a historical fiction about the real Alice from Wonderland.

The Pilot's Wife by Annita Shreve
This is actually next month's book selection. I don't know a lot about it, but seeing it bargain priced, knowing that I'd be buying it eventually, seemed like the perfect time to pick it up.

What did you find in your mailbox this week?

  5. I haven't read Alice I have Been but fell in love w/Melanie Benjamin's writing when I read The Autobiography of Mrs. Tom Thumb. Can't wait for the new one she's got coming out next year :)
