Me on In My Mailbox (30)

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

Ahhh, summertime. You're so elusive in the Lower Mainland. ;) Seriously. June was full of cloud and rain. Part of this week was sunnier, warmer, nicer out. It actually felt like summer. Now comes the wait for the couple of days were the humidity spikes (it's rarely humid in the summer here) and things get a bit muggy and the news is filled with people buying out electronic stores of their giant fans. Few houses have built-in air conditioning. It doesn't get as muggy out here as, say, Kelowna (BC interior) or Toronto (out near the east coast). The Lower Mainland is a temperate rain forest: mild winters, cooler summers, lots of spring & fall rain.

Bought: (possibly splurged upon)
Once Every Never by Lesley Livingston
Give Up the Ghost by Megan Crewe
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
Forgotten by Cat Patrick
Falling in Love with English Boys by Melissa Jensen

Received in the mail:
The Near Witch by Victoria Schwab (Ashelynn over at A Gypsy Writer sent this to me before the mail strike and it finally got here)

Borrowed from the library:
Entangled by Cat Clarke (I finally found this book. It sucks so much when a book sounds really good but it's only found in the UK or it's only available as an e-book. There are just some books you want to read in physical book form.)


  1. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is awesome. I can't wait to hear what you think of it. Happy reading!

  2. Wow, you have a nice stack of books this week in your mailbox.
    Happy Reading,
    Book Sniffers Anonymous

  3. Ah, I'm rather looking forward to Miss Peregrine's, Forgotten, and The Near Witch! And the cover for Entangled has me already, how pretty!

  4. A great haul! Awesome stuff... I can't wait to read Entangled :)

  5. 'Once Every Never' sounds so good! Actually, all the books you bought sound great. =)

    Oh man, you're so lucky you don't have much humidity... I'm a couple of hours SW of Toronto and we would die without our A/C. Especially today. Gah!
