In My Mailbox ( 5 )

In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren!
Didn't get too much this week, just bought two books.  So, let's see what I got.

Confessions of a Serial Kisser by Wendelin Van Draanen.  I just finished reading The Running Dream ( look for a review soon ) and I loved it.  This book was at Big Lots on Friday when we went for three dollars.  I couldn't pass it up.
Where I Belong by Gwedolyn Heasly.  Yes, I got it!  I'm so excited to read this book.  Basically, I can't wait to read it, but it will probably sit on my bookcase for a few months because A. I get too many library books out and B. I want to read it so bad that I'm not going to want to read it because once I'm done reading it, I won't be excited to read it.  Get it?

So, I was a little bit late with this week's IMM.  Why, you ask?  Because I spent my weekend, or Saturday anyway, putting this together.

My brand new bookcase, also bought at Big Lots.  It was my Valentine's Day present from my parents and it's AMAZING!  I've been wanting a new bookcase for a while because I hardly had any room left for any books.  This one is a good amount bigger, so I have more room.  It was also only thirty dollars, so my mom didn't argue too much when my dad found it for me.
And this is Love Bug, Bug for short, being bad and kinda laying in the bookcase while I was in the middle of getting all my books into it.
Tada!  I love it so, so much!  No, not all of my books fit this one, either, but they fit much better than before.  I'm still super excited about it.  And my IMM is late because yesterday I just kind of died from putting this together ( it was harder than it looks! ) and today I finished cleaning up my room. 

So that's all I got this week, but I think it was a pretty good haul.  What did you get?



  1. Yay for the new bookcase! My Mom was also awesome and bought me a new one last month. Funnily enough my cat also likes to sleep on one of the shelves, haha.

    I'm looking forward to checking out 'Where I Belong' -- it definitely sounds like a cute story.

    You didn't loose a follower. I still read your blog. Well, technically, I'm not a follower. I don't follow via google or what else. But I read blogs. By the way, Stéphanie = Steff. It's me.
