In My Mailbox was started by The Story Siren and inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie. Sadly the only books I order are those that are hard to find. The following books are from the library and bookstores.

I have only read two books by Annette Curtis Klause and I loved them, so I decided to get this one when I saw it plus the covers really cool.

I'm so excited that I found three of the books I am missing from the Everworld series. Especially since they are so hard to find and the fact that I want to know how the series ends..
Well that's all for me this week.
P.S. I will be away from my blog for the next few days (like a week).
