In My Mailbox (1)

In My Mailbox is a meme hosted by The Story Siren where bloggers can share the books they've received/bought/borrowed each week.

My new book blog is in the process of being made right now, and this blog will turn into a personal/writing blog (which is pretty much what it is already). But I really wanted to participate in this week's In My Mailbox, because I got a lot of book goodies over the past couple of weeks.  It's my first IMM, and I know a lot of people do them every week, but I plan on only participating every once in a while on my new blog.  So this one is not only for the past week, but for the past couple of weeks.

Christmas Gifts
From my parents I received:
The Scorch Trials by James Dashner
The Death Cure by James Dashner
Out of Oz by Gregory Maguire
(Thanks, Mom and Dad!)

From my brother and his wife I received a Barnes & Noble gift card and with it bought:
The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson
(Thanks T & K!)

With some leftover Christmas money I bought:
Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins (found this at a used bookstore in town for $6!)
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

From the Library
Finally got my book club book in that I had on hold:
Bag of Bones by Stephen King

In the Mail/Delivered
And then, what I was really excited about, was my Christmas gift from my hubby:

Yea!!!  New bookcases!  I needed those!!!  Thanks, Jeremy!

So what kind of bookish things did you get this week (or couple of weeks or month or whatever)?  Let me know if you participated in this week's IMM and I'll check out your blog!
