In My Mailbox {4}

1.08.2012
*is suspicious* Sure, the day after I post about my technical difficulties, Blogger suddenly starts working again. And I didn't even do anything to my laptop o.o

Anyway. Before I get onto the actual book part of this: I received an email from someone a few days ago who thinks I'm not "a legit book blogger" because I don't buy tons of books every month. I think it's safe to say that's complete bullshit, but I'll also say this: If I had the money, sure, I'd be buying three books a week or something. But the simple matter is, I don't. My money needs to be saved for more important things. Like food. And college. (Because, let's face it, no way in hell will I be getting a scholarship for anything.) So I don't spend $100 a month on books. Boo hoo. Sue me.

/rant over.

And now, BOOKS! :D

Borrowed from a friend:
Legend by Marie Lu

From the library:
Dark Parties by Sara Grant
(This is not the edition/cover I have, but it's the only one Goodreads has o.o)

From NetGalley:
Partials by Dan Wells

So yeah. :P

What was in your mailbox this week?

  2. Great books. Legend was really good. I really want to read Partials, it looks great. The person who said that to you is lame! I enjoy your blog and I like reading your reviews. Here's my IMM if you want to look. http://booklovingme.blogspot.com/2012/01/in-my-mailbox-1812.html

  3. Great haul! I really want to read Partial and Legend. I'm a college student too and I'd love to buy more books but I can't. Most of the books I have I either won or bought free Kindle books. That person was really dumb.
    Happy blogging and reading!

  4. Huh? You have to actually purchase all your books to be a book blogger? That makes no sense whatsoever. There are so many ways to acquire books to rrrreead without having to pay for them yourself.

  5. LEGEND >:D

    I haven't gotten any books in a while because I've been going through the books I already had. BUT, they're almost gone :D which means I'll be getting more soon...

  6. Awesome IMM, I recently got Legend to. And got a copy of Partials awhile back. They both sound amazing, and can't wait to read them. Hope you enjoy! :)

  8. LEGEEEEEEEEEEEEEND. I'm almost done with it, and it is so good, Unicorn. SO GOOD.

    In my mailbox this week there is . . . -giggles- "Split Loyalties," a.k.a. a book I will never read.

  9. Awesome books you got this week! I really want to get a copy of Legend. It's been killing me that I haven't. I've been seeing Partials everywhere, I hope you enjoy!

    Happy reading!

  10. OMG! Who would go out of their way to say something like that? How much money you have to spend on books is irrelevant. I love your blog BTW.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I think what you've said, is so true. Also, I think these people should consider how much money they spend on books vs. how many ARCs they get. Anyway, I like your IMM and I hope you enjoy reading the books! (I've heard some pretty good things about Legend and some really horrible things about Dark Parties, so I'm veery curious what you'll think.)

  18. I love that cover for Dark Parties as well! Great IMM, they all look great!

    Also, I know what you mean on not having money for books. I don't have a job except babysitting, but I'm always in debt to my boyfriend for things I NEED, so I can't really splurge on even one book that often :P. Just ignore them, you know you're a legit blogger and that's all that is important :).

  19. HAHAHAHA! I LOVE your rant! I need to have your state of mind. I'm in uni and can't afford food and SHOULD be saving for those things when I can back to uni but books have been staring me in the eye... Oh well, won't last long in a month hahaha!

    Awesome IMM :) I'm a new follower - you make me laugh!
