In My Mailbox (118) Where I Cleaned Out My Shelves and Find New Books

In My Mailbox, inspired by Pop Culture Junkie and hosted by The Story Siren.

Over the last couple of weeks I cleaned out around 60 books from my shelves-mostly adult books that was never going to read again or that I just was not interested in. Needless to say that after trading them in for credit at one of the bookstores here I immediately bought some to replace them with.
A huge thank you to Penguin and Audiobook Jukebox and AudioGo, as well, as to whoever decided to trade in the awesome titles by some of my favorite authors.

Bought (trade credit)
A House Like a Lotus (O'Keefe Family, 3) by Madeleine L'Engle, 1985 (originally published in 1984). Published by Laurel Leaf. My review of A House Like a Lotus.
Meet the Austins (Austin Family, 1) by Madeleine L'Engle, 1981 (originally published in 1960). Published by Laurel Leaf. My review of Meet the Austins.

Dragon's Blood (Pit Dragon Chronicles) by Jane Yolen, 2004 (originally published in 1982). Published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.  My review of Dragon's Blood.

Y'all, I am so very excited to have found three out of four of the Pit Dragon Chronicle books (love that series and cannot wait to find the one I am missing and reread them all). And the fact that I was able to find two Madeleine L'Engle, a Mercedes Lackey, and Dragonsong by Anne McCaffrey is just icing on the cake. =)

Yes, I have never read Little Women...okay, I've only read the abridged versions, but that so does not count. So I am very excited to listen to the audiobook of it. Freshman Year & The Oriental Casebook both sound highly entertaining and I cannot wait to start them.

What do y'all think of this week's books? Any y'all are excited to read or that you loved?
