In My Mailbox


In My Mailbox is a meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren, where we share books we have received in our mailboxes this week.
This is what I got from my special someone in a recent online order from Barnes & Noble.






Hearts at Stake by Alyxandra Harvey - which I accidentally ordered in my haste when I actually meant to order Bleeding Hearts (Drake Chronicles #4)! All You Desire (Eternal Ones #2) by Kristen Miller; Bargains and Betrayals (13 to Life #3) by Shannon Delaney; Bloodlines (Bloodlines #1) by Richelle Mead, The Power of Six (Lorien Legacies #2) by Pittacus Lore; Hades (Halo #2) by Alexandra Adornetto, True Blood Graphic Novel Vol.1, The Sookie Stackhouse Companion and the Vampire Academy Graphic Novel.

I've been really excited for these books. Ordering them from B&N has made me very curious:

Since the closing of Borders, has anyone switched to buying their books from Barnes & Noble? Has anyone been experiencing problems with receiving their books?

It two almost two weeks, a nasty email and an irate phone call for these books to finally find their way to my house. I've only made two online purchases through B&N and each time, my orders were delayed - almost canceled and then finally shipped. Why are they making me wait so long when I could have gone to my local Wal-Mart and bought it there. Very frustrating.

Enough of my venting...What did you get in your mailbox this week?

You got the Vampire Academy graphic novel (jealous face!). I got bloodlines too and can't wait to start reading.

I recently received The Power of Six but have to read I Am Number Four first. The Sookie Stackhouse Companion was just released! I am interested in your opinion. Enjoy!

Here's my IMM. I hope you'll stop by when you have a moment.

You guys have inspired me to make The Power of Six my next read :-) I just hope I can fit it in between all this school work - ugh.
