In My Mailbox

As if the name doesn't imply it, "In My Mailbox" is where book bloggers talk about all the fandangled books they got in the mail. Though...if one day I am so inclined to, I might just list bills, magazines, adds...but maybe not. And, though it's name is "In My Mailbox" that doesn't mean what we got came in our mailbox. Does anyone do a "In My Shopping Bag"? Because they should.

Da da da dahhhh. Books that came in to Borders that I ordered! Yay! Just got them today!

  • The Secret Circle: The Captive Part II and The Power by L.J. Smith
  • City Of Ashes by Cassandra Clare

I was so excited when my mom told me that Borders called! I ordered these on Monday since I was getting tired of waiting for Borders to re-stock since they were in post-Christmas frenzy. So, I called (first time I had done that (Actually I made my mom talk to them for the most of the ordeal.) and, honestly, talking to strangers on the phone to order books (an odd thing to do) is in the uncomfortable and awkward zone for me) and ordered the books, insisting that, yes, The Secret Circle were getting re-issued in an omnibus. Seriously, she wouldn't believe me but once she checked the computer it was all cool. Odd thing was was that the employee lady said that the Secret Circle actually came out on the 8th but they never had them in stock. Really? I know that Barnes and Noble and Borders aren't the same thing but shouldn't all books come out at the same time? B&N's site said it came out on the 26th... Oh, well. Point is, is that I got it! And City Of Ashes. God I love this series even though I just started (well, duh. City of Ashes is the second out of a three-book series.) but I am feeling some major hostility towards Cassandra Clare due to that last plot twist at the end of City Of Bones. *sigh* Jace is awesome. Funniest and coolest and hottest character I have encountered in a book so far. And I usually don't feel attatched to the fair and cocky ones. Dark haired and cocky sort of work sometimes, but...well, blond hair with guys is usually associated with the horrid jock and jerk-ness. I'm glad to say that doesn't apply with Jace. Yay. Simon is cool, too.


Gah! School is back on tomorrow! Nooooo...but break was going so good for me... *shrugs* had to happen eventually. But, still...frick.

Well, I have to go work on an art project. I hate perspective drawing. Bleh. Night, all!
