In My Mailbox (33)

It's Sunday so once again I'm linking up with The Story Siren's In My Mailbox!
In My Mailbox
From The Story Siren
Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick by Joe Schreiber
Sphinx's Princess by Esther Friesner
Stork by Wendy Delsol
Last week Kristi, of The Story Siren, posted some books for donation. There were several other books I had requested and was hoping to pick up, but by the time the e-mail was sent they had already been reserved. But I'm more than excited I was able to request any, and I'm awfully excited to read each one.

Bunheads by Sophie Flack
I won this one from a giveaway at Elle Lit. (One of the only other Louisiana book bloggers I've found, but if there's more out there please say hello!) I can't help but think of Center Stage when I think of this book, and if it lives up to that comparison I think I'll love it.

Borrowed From a Friend
I Don't Know How She Does It by Allison Pearson
I haven't seen the movie yet for this, but to be honest I think the movie looks awfully cheesy. But I think that even if the movie looks cheesy the book has to be good otherwise they never would have thought to adapt it. I have heard it's a British book which makes me excited because I seem to always love books based out of England.

Definitely an awesome book week for me, and I'm hoping it was just as awesome for you! So what's in your mailbox this week? And any suggestions for which ones of these I should pick up to read first?


  1. I love the cover for Bunheads! I hope that you enjoy your new books!

  2. Bunheads totally lives up to Center Stage (one of my favorite movies, too...). Glad the book made it to you :)

    Au Revior is pretty cute too; very quick, high-energy read!

  3. The books you got from the Story Siren look so good!

    Come check out my IMM

  4. Bunheads is SO good! It's a little like Center Stage... but not really.
    Happy reading!

  5. Great set! I really want to read Sphinx Princess. Bunheads was great.

  6. I have actually read "I dont know how She Does It" and didnt like it. I was actually surprised to hear that they were making a movie out of it. I probably had stronger feelings about it because I was a working mom when I read the book and just thought that being a working mom was not portrayed very well. Sorry to be a downer! Let me know what you think! I dont want to give anything away :)
