In My Mailbox (47)

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren.

This week brought in a pretty good haul, mostly thanks to our efforts to get rid of older/unwanted books and trading them for other we wanted at our local used bookshop. We had $35 worth of store credit courtesy of our trade-ins and were able to buy 10 books with that; having to only spend $3 out of pocket from going over that $35. I'd say we did pretty good!

Here are the books we got this week!

The Giver by Lois Lowry
Enthralled, edited by Melissa Marr and Kelley Armstrong
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

Trade (at local book shop):
I Heart You, You Haunt Me by Lisa Schroeder
The Secret Hour by Scott Westerfeld
Touching Darkness by Scott Westerfeld
The Name of This Book is Secret by Pseudonymous Bosch
Devil's Kiss by Sarwat Chadda
Living Dead Girl by Elizabeth Scott
The Luxe by Anna Godberson
Peter and the Starcatchers by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson
The Ring of Solomon by Jonathan Stroud
Heroes of the Valley by Jonathan Stroud
