In My Mailbox (98) The Bought, Borrowed, and Won Edition

In My Mailbox was started by Kristi of The Story Siren and inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie.
Won:
Under the Green Hill by Laura L. Sullivan, 2010. Published by Henry Holt Books for Young Readers.
I think Under the Green Hill sounds like a fascinating read, so I'm really looking forward to reading it.
Won from Candace of Candace's Book Blog.

The Road to Pemberly (An Anthology of New Pride and Prejudice Stories) Edited by Marsha Altman, 2011. Published by Ulysses Press.
I admit that I have never read Pride and Prejudice (although I have read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies), so I probably won't read this until I do read P&P. Though it sounds interesting.

Won from Misty of Book Rat.

Bought:
13 Little Blue Envelopes (Little Blue Envelope, 1) by Maureen Johnson, 2005. Published by Harper Tempest.
I really enjoyed 13 Little Blue Envelopes when I read it last year, so when I saw it at the used bookstore I had to have it. You can see my thoughts on it HERE.

Borrowed (from my awesome librarian friend M):
Fullmetal Alchemist 1 by Hiromu Arakawa, 2002. Published by Viz Media.
I've actually been wanting to read Fullmetal Alchemist for quite some time, so I was pleasantly surprised when I found out that she had the series. Cannot wait to read it.
Forbidden Dance 1 by Hinako Ashihara, 2003. Published by Tokyopop.
I hadn't heard of Forbidden Dance, but I really enjoyed the first volume.
Angel Sanctuary 1 by Kaori Yuki, 2004 (first published in 1995). Published by Viz Media.
This one was kinda weird. but also pretty good.

I do believe that that is all for me this week in books. It was a pretty fantastic book week for me, so many titles that I am absolutely eager to delve into...and some I couldn't wait to read so I've already read/finished them. =)
Hope ya'll have had a great week in books as well. 

Around the blog this week-
The Rag and Bone Shop by Robert Cormier (5 out of 5 pineapples)
Teaser from The Rag and Bone Shop. 
Wish List Wednesday (Towards the Gleam & Heaven's Will 1)
Amnesia Labyrinth 2 by Nagaru Tanigawa & Natsumi Kohane (4 out of 5 pineapples)
