Monday Mailbox!

Mailbox Monday!


Mailbox Monday is a where we share the books we acquired in the week whether bought, borrowed or stole...or sent from a publisher! It is hosted by a different book blog each month; more details can be found here: Mailbox Monday. 

The host for May's Monday Mailbox is Martha's Bookshelf.

This Weeks Book Stack!

Books I Bought:

Title: Heidi
Author: Johanna Spyri

This copy of Heidi (found on ebay which is my book buying facilitator these days) is so gorgeous and in such good condition that I had to get it. 

Title: Graceling
Author: Kristin Cashore

SO EXCITED about this one. I was staying at a friends house the other day and his mum was selling some books...can't believe this book which I have been lusting after for ages was in the pile! It was meant to be.

Title: The Hobbit Graphic Novel
Authors: J.R.R Tolkein and David Wenzel

I still need to read the original Hobbit (ludicrous I know) but this was too pretty and sumptuous to resist.

Title: That Yellow Bastard
Author: Frank Miller

This is the fourth volume of the Sin City graphic novel series and I had never seen this cover before! I am slowly collecting and reading them all; they are amazing.

Title: Creatures of the Night
Authors: Neil Gaiman and Michael Zulli

As I said in last weeks Monday Mailbox, I am collecting all of Neil Gaiman's works to read next year. This one is gorgeous and hardback and everything that is good in books.

Books I Won:

Title: The Vicious Deep
Author: Zoraida Cordova

I won this book from Wendy Darling of The Midnight Garden. Thanks so much- I love it!

That's my mailbox this week- let me know what was in yours!


  1. That copy of Heidi looks GORGEOUS. I remember reading the abridged version when I was a kid and loving it! I'm curious about The Vicious Deep and yay for Graceling! Haven't read it but I've heard great things about it! Great haul xD

  2. Wow you got a lot of pretties this week.

  3. I used to buy books of ebay as well, your copy of Heidi is beautiful! And I would like to read Graceling too, must get a copy, stat!

  4. I don't think I've ever read Heidi. I hope you love all of your new books!

  5. I do love gorgeous old books! I have an old book by the author of Heidi (a virtual unknown called Cornelli); my mother received it in 1921.

    Enjoy your books! Have a great week....and here's MY MONDAY MEMES POST

  9. OMG I LOVE that copy of Heidi!! The goats on it make me insanely happy, I'm so glad you picked it up and that it's in good condition. Also I'm excited to hear your thoughts on Graceling, I haven't read it yet either, but now that Bitterblue is out, I really want to!
