In My Mailbox is brought to us by The Story Siren and was inspired by Alea.
My mom's store got a box of books their last stockday (this only happens a couple times a year) and I got into them before they even got out of the storeroom. :P So this is what I bought:
Heaven by Virginia Andrews (V. C. Andrews) - Paperback
Heaven's mother Angel had died in childbirth, and from that moment her father turned against her. Her only allies, it seemed, were her four half-brothers and sisters.
When their father, pour and desperate, sold them to strangers, Heaven was left alone and friendless. Her only hope was to reunite her family. But how?
(Summary from the back of the book.)
Yeah, I already own this. Yeah, these books are trainwrecks. But it's got such a pretty cover and... yeah, I can't really justify it, either.
Maybe the next book I got will redeem me somewhat:
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum - Paperback
Swept away from her home in Kansas by a tornado, Dorothy and her dog Tot find themselves stranded in the fantastical Land of Oz. As instructed by the Good Witch of the North and the Munchkins, Dorothy sets off on the yellow brick road to try and find her way to the Emerald City and the Wizard of Oz. With her companions the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman and the Cowardly Lion, she experences an adventure full of friendship, magic and danger. A much-loved children's class, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz continues to delight readers young and old with its enchanting tale of witches, flying monkeys and silver shoes.
(Summary from the back of the book as well.)
I honestly hate this movie. It's just... no. I do not like it. But never judge a book by its movie, right? I have read this before and enjoyed it... and the cover is adorable.
Last (received as a gift - more about this in a minute):
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins - Hardcover
Do I even need to post a summary about this?
So here's the story about this one. I don't have a bookstore nearby where I could buy this, I can't buy books online, and the library was taking FOREVER to get it here. Since I didn't have it, I didn't read the first two. (Still haven't. Been sick. Post spoilers and die.) So I whined about it on twitter (I do this a lot...) and Lindsay offered to send it to me. How awesome is she?? Seriously, go tell her that she's awesome.
Um... I think that might be everything...
Oh, wait, no, it's not. I also won some swag from Mavie's blog.
The Harmonic Feedback magnet now lives on my fridge with my Fairy Tale magnets.
Okay, that's everything for me.
Peace and cookies,
(P.S. Tomorrow's my birthday, tomorrow's my birthday!!)
