in my mailbox (14)

Feeling a little bleary after waking up at 3.30 to register for Pottermore but: mission accomplished, so here's what's been hanging out in my mailbox for this past week!

Stork, Wendy DelSol
The Maze Runner, James Dashner
Sunshine, Robin McKinley

Since I have the second book the series, Frost, for review I needed to pick up Stork. The cover for Stork loses its brilliance when translated to pixels - it has a lovely matte feel and a shimmer to it that you can't see in a picture. I've been mainly looking for paperbacks that at Border's as that's where the discount's better and when I saw Amy & Roger's Epic Detour sitting on the shelf I knew it was coming home with me. (It's actually the perfect sunny summer day out to read it...!) I've been wanting to read The Maze Runner forever now and now I can.  I didn't see The Scorch  Trials or else I'd have picked that up, too. And last but not least: Sunshine. The cover for this is a lovely holographic golden yellow with textured swirls and at about $6 or so I thought it was time I read a Robin McKinley novel.

What's in your mailbox, folks?

I nearly didn't recognise Amy and Roger's Epic detour - the UK cover is so different!

Great books - Happy reading :)

I've been wanting to read Stork, simply because I love the cover. I didn't realize it is part of a series. Guess I'll have to start at the beginning. Hope you enjoy!

Ah! Amy and Roger! LOVED that book! I hope you enjoy it. Stork was different. I liked it, didn't love it, but I hope you enjoy it :)

I absolutely ADORE Robin McKinley! She's one of my favorite authors. I'm curious to hear what you think about Sunshine, because I haven't read that one yet.

Great set! I loved Sunshine, but it is different from most of Robin's books. I want to read Amy and Roger's Epic Detour.

I have Amy & Roger on my shelf along with The Maze Runner... I've got to get to those! Also, the cover for Sunshine looks very pretty! I wish I lived in the US so I could go to the Borders closing sales...

Hi, Kaye! Thanks for stopping by. :) I love Robin McKinley's books. I haven't read Sunshine yet, but I really enjoyed Spindle's End (a Sleeping Beauty variation) and Deerskin (a variation on a Brothers Grimm story), plus a couple of others besides. I hope you enjoy!

I've been hoping to read The Maze Runner soon. Vacation is coming, and I need to choose which books to bring. Happy reading!
