In My Mailbox is a meme hosted over at The Story Siren. And yup, it's my first time doing it! Nothing actually came in my mailbox this week although I won a couple books, so hopefully those will arrive soon. Everything I got came from the library. Also, if you do this meme too, post a link in the comments and I'll go read/comment on your post!
After School Nightmare Volume 2. I read Volume 1 last week and it was amazing, so I was excited to get this. Actually, I already finished it, and it was just as good as the first one! I reserved the third volume from the library but it takes forever to arrive. Can't wait! I highly recommend this series to anyone who likes manga, unless you're very easily grossed out or disturbed. It's rated 16 or older, but I've never paid attention to ratings anyway.
Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey. I read the first book ages ago (actually, like three months), and absolutely loved it. I've been meaning to read this for a while, and my friend was going to lend it to me when she finished. But she finished and forgot to give it to me, and then I forgot to remind her, and finally, I just reserved it from the library. (Yeah, I reserve a lot of books. They have a special shelf for me, and all the people who start working at the circulation desk are warned about me. Not even kidding.) I'm currently reading this, and it's just as good as the first one!
Restoring Harmony. I'm also currently reading this one. It's been on my TBR list for a while, so I was anticipating a lot from it. I'm nearly done with it, and though I'm a bit disappointed, it's still pretty good. Some parts dragged for a little, but others were quite suspenseful. Oh, and there's a hot guy in it. I like hot guys. Spill (the hot guy) is my favorite character by far! Also, fiddles are cool.
The Lovely Bones. I saw the movie and really enjoyed it, and someone told me the book is great. Someone else told me the book sucks. As soon as I finish the Mysterious Benedict Society or Restoring Harmony (not sure which I'll finish first), I'll be reading this one so I guess I'll find out! I'm not a fan of the cover, though. I usually like simple covers, but this one's just too plain for my tastes, not the kind of thing I would pick up.
Memoirs of a Geisha. I loved the movie (except why were Chinese actresses playing Japanese people?), so I wanted to read the book for a while. I stuck it on my TBR list and finally got around to it (I have 140 books on my TBR list... so...). Or at least, I finally got around to putting it on the TBR pile.Oh, and I so love this cover. The girl's eyes are really neat, and I love the way her lips stand out against the pallor of her face. The wind-swept hair adds a nice touch, too, and I like that the title is tucked securely in the corner, rather than being all IN-YOUR-FACE.
The Time Traveler's Wife. Another book I've always meant to read. I'm actually officially twenty pages in, because I had to go for a check-up at the doctor's, and we were running a bit late. My parents kept yelling at me to hurry up, so I grabbed the first book I saw. When I got home, the library had sent an automatic email that the second Mysterious Benedict Society book had arrived, so this book was suddenly toast. I'll get to it eventually, though. I think.
Paper Towns. I read Looking for Alaska and An Abundance of Katherines, both of which were beyond amazing, so I decided to pick this one up, too. John Green is quickly becoming among my favorite authors! I'm not loving the cover on this one, but the title is neat, so it makes up for everything. I badly want to read this one after I finish what I'm currently reading, but the other books are due sooner.
That's it for me this week! And like I said at the beginning, if you did IMM too, just post the link in the comments.
