Me on In My Mailbox (26)

In My Mailbox is a bunch of weekly fun hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren. :)

It's June. Where's the summer weather?? ;) It's cloudy and cool right now, and I went to the library this week. :D The one that's five minutes away, not the big pretty one in downtown Vancouver that's been in movies. Not totally sure I could handle going all the way downtown on my own with my foot still in the boot. At least I'm not on crutches anymore.

June means a few things: my parents going on a cruise, my sister graduating from university, and me needing surgery to get a screw removed from my ankle. I never ever thought I'd need surgery. This will make it twice in 4 months. Not a lot in general, but since I'd never had surgery before, a lot for me.

Here's my book haul for the week. It felt so good to go to the library. :)

Strange Angels, Betrayals, and Defiance by Lili St. Crow (I totally caved and bought signed copies from a bookstore in Vancouver, WA. I already have a signed Jealousy I ordered from Powell's last August.)

Borrowed from the library:
Ballad by Maggie Stiefvater
Lament by Maggie Stiefvater (e-book)
Twelfth Grade Kills by Heather Brewer
Harmonic Feedback by Tara Kelly (it's so good, I have to read it again)
Her and Me and You by Lauren Strasnick
Ash by Malinda Lo
XVI by Julia Karr
The Dead and the Gone by Susan Beth Pfeffer
The World We Live In by Susan Beth Pfeffer
Whisper by Phoebe Kitanidis
Rot & Ruin by Jonathan Mayberry
Rage by Jackie Morse Kessler (e-book)
Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver (e-book)
