In My Mailbox (#3)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi @ The Story Siren

Not a bad book week this week. Although I didn't receive any ARCs :(, I did get some other goodies :).

I got a copy of a childhood favorite, Children of the Lamp: The Akhenaten Adventure through the soon to close Goodread's Bookswap. Big thanks to Deranged Pegasus for swapping.

From the library, I picked up a copy of The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath for a book club in November. I know it's a classic, but I haven't read it yet so we'll see how it goes. 

And I bought The Devil's Arithmetic by Jane Yolen, and Looking for Alaska by John Green from my local thrift store. I already had a copy of Alaska I found at a library book sale, but the cover was torn and the new one still looks new. Yay!

What was in your mailbox this week? Tell me in the comments section. I LOVE comments. 


  1. I've never read The Bell Jar, nor do I know what it's about but after studying Plath's poems in English I don't think I could face the depression :o Or maybe I'm just being prejudice and should give it ago myself

    I love the US cover of Looking for Alaska :D

  2. Nice mailbox this week! I also got Looking for Alaska after a looonnggg wait; I hope you enjoy your haul :)

  5. Great books! I've never read any of these books, though I've intended to read Looking for Alaska for a very long time. =P Enjoy these!

    And thank you for stopping by my blog!

  6. I'll be interested to hear what you think of the Bell Jar. I love Plath--even if she was extremely messed up
