In My Mailbox #2

In My Mail Box is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren that displays what books other readers got in their mailboxes this week. This week I got:


The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein
Babe in Boyland by Jody Gehrman
Fly Me to the Moon by Alyson Noel
The Book Theif by Markus Zusak
Tiger's Curse by by Collen Houck
House of Sand and Fog by Andre Dubus III
Winter Longing by Tricia Mills
I was Jane Austen's Best Friend by Cora Harrison
Death Cloud by Andrew Lane
Mad Love by Suzanne Selfors

I told you before, I have a serious addiction to the library, which is where I got all these books. It isn't a bad thing, but I continue to check out books! I'm there a few times a week and every time I go, I always tell myself I'm not going to check anything out and ended up leaving with a huge stack of them in my hand. Still, I'm pretty excited with what I got this week. I already finished Babe in Boyland so I'll be posting a review on that soon. Anyway, I can't wait to start some of these! :)

So, what's in your mailbox?
