In My Mailbox/ Weekly Reading Wrap-Up (6)

I haven't done an In My Mailbox or Weekly Reading Wrap-Up in a few weeks because I haven't really gotten any new books recently (sad, right?). This weekend ended up being a pretty good one for me though as far as books go. I've been on somewhat of a self imposed book ban since I'm still living the unemployed life. I've been sticking mostly to the library and catching up on unread books on my shelves. However, in my travels yesterday I happened to pass a Borders with a giant sign in the window "GOING OUT OF BUSINESS! EVERYTHING ON SALE!". Now tell me, how could I not swerve across traffic into their parking garage right away? I had to limit myself because books were only 20% off at this point so they aren't crazy deals yet. My boyfriend and I are thinking about going back soon to possibly buy a bookshelf and a chair or two and I'm hoping they will have marked books down even further. I should also mention that it was only this particular Borders that will be closing- I don't want to freak out any of you Borders enthusiasts!
Anyway, here's what I got in my mailbox this week.

From sale at Borders:

Dash & Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan
Amy & Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson
Bad Girls Don't Die by Katie Alender

From the library:

Catching Fire & Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

This week was a bit of a slower reading week for me. I've had visitors from New England the past 2 weekends and haven't gotten back into the swing of things just yet. I reviewed The Hunger Games and read and reviewed Eating Animals. With hosting the holiday this coming week, I'm really hoping I'll still be able to squeeze Catching Fire & Mockingjay in because Mockingjay is due back at the library on Saturday!
