In My Mailbox (15)

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

Eek! It's been so long since I posted on this blog. I hope you guys still remember me. :/ I haven't been a very productive blogger since I arrived here in the Philippines. I think I've only read one or two books since we arrived here... And no reviews at all!

I'm having a great time with my cousins and newly found friends. But, not everything is great around here. First, the constant blackout. My grandparents live in a rural area. Not a day misses without 1-4 30min-2hr blackout. Second, the place is surrounded either by water or woods, and creepy/weird animals like tokay geckoes and ginormous centipedes. I had an encounter with one of the resident geckoes. It had a really huge head I thought it was a snake! Lastly, I lost my laptop, cellphone and camera at the airport. I don't know why but I'm not that sad that I lost those gadgets. They have internet connection here but it's only dial-up.

Anyway, here are the books that I got since my last IMM a month ago:

Playing HurtSeaFins Are ForeverFront and Center (The Dairy Queen Trilogy)Carter Finally Gets It
Playing Hurt - Holly Schindler
Sea - Heidi Kling
Fins Are Forever - Tera Lynn Childs
Front and Center - Catherine Gilbert Murdock
Carter Finally Gets It - Brent Crawford

Philippine bookstores have a surprisingly huge amount of selection of books. I got these when we went to Manila. Practically 75%-90% of the books are in English language. They are slightly cheaper than in US too! And they have plenty of paperbacks!
