In My Mailbox (7)

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

I am finally done with book buying ban! *throws confetti* But you know what's weird? Thursday morning, I was typing away on my laptop when my mom suddenly asked me why I haven't bought a single book for weeks. You know why that is weird? Because she was the one who told ordered me to not buy books until I read all my unread books.I didn't know what to say so I just shrugged.

Later that day, we went to the grocery and she asked me if I wanted to stop by the bookstore. I just gave her this weird look because I'm supposed to be on a book buying ban but she just answered it with an even weirder look. And that was simply how I got these two inspite of the ban.

EntwinedWither (The Chemical Garden Trilogy)
Entwined - Heather Dixon
Wither - Lauren DeStefano
From Simon & Schuster Galley Grab

 The Day BeforeForbidden
The Day Before - Lisa Schroeder (Jun 28th 2011)
Forbidden - Tabitha Suzuma (Jun 28th 2011)

After we paid, I asked her, "I thought I wasn't supposed to buy books until the end of the month?" which she replied with, "Then why did you buy those?" :(( Whatever happened to her - whether the dementia kicked in or she just wasn't serious about the ban, I'm kinda annoyed by it.

What did you get in your mailbox?

  1. I just recently bought Wither and Entwined, too, but I'm so swamped with review copies that most likely I won't get to read them until Christmas! :)

    Enjoy your books!

  2. Lol, sometimes I can't understand my parents either. I've got Entwined on my wishlist and Lisa Schroeder is a great author so I'm sure you'll enjoy The Day Before.

  6. I went through my bookcase last week and pulled out all the books I hadn't read yet... the stack was much larger than I anticipated. So now I'm on a self-imposed book buying ban. It's no fun, but I have to read the ones I already have! Glad you got some new books!

  10. Hi there! Stopping by from The Story Siren's link list. That story sounds a little like my mom! Kinda. Just enough for me to share a story about her lol. She's all for me having a blog, but then she'll abruptly change her mind and threaten to take away my laptop if I don't focus on schoolwork at random points in time.

    Anyways, enjoy your books! I liked Wither and hope you do too! Entwined just sounds epic. Have a good week!

  11. Lol great story. I tell myself all the time not to buy books until my reading pile has gone down but sometimes I just can't help myself. Hope you enjoy all the books you got.
