It looks like you have received quite a few good books this week, I hope you enjoy reading them all! ^_^

I think I may also have to pick up a copy of The Hunger Games due to all the talk around the blogosphere lately....

Gifts of War seems like a god read!

Mondays: Start of another week

Sandy Nawrot said...

Oooh, Hunger Games. Worth almost full price, I will be the first to say. Best Intentions has been making its way around the block too, and gotten good reviews. Nice list this week!

Teddyree said...

Awww I'm jealous, I'm still waiting on my copy of The Hunger Games. Have a great reading week

bermudaonion said...

I got Gifts of War too. I bought Hunger Games in the airport on my way home from BEA.

Shooting Stars Mag said...

I really need to pick up The Hunger Games. I'm a bit behind, yes, but everyone IS praising it, so I WILL read it. lol Nice week you had!

Mari said...

Ooh, good books. I loved the Frankie Landau-Banks book and really want to read The Hunger Games! Enjoy them.

Here is what I got this past week.

Ti said...

I'm probably going to save Hunger Games until the other books come out. If a book is really good, it will drive me crazy to wait for book 2 and 3.

jessicamarie: I really had no option since I've been on the library waiting list for this forever...so we had to read it for this month's book club...we'll share the book...no biggie.

gautami: I can't wait to get to that next month when I hammer out the WWII books.

Sandy: thanks for checking out the list.

Teddyree: I had to break down and buy hunger games.

bermudaonion: wow...i usually don't buy books in the airport because they are more expensive.

shooting stars: I am behind on hunger games too.

mari: thanks for checking out these books. have a great week...i'm glad you like the frankie landau book.

ti: i hear you about waiting for sequels, but I think i can do it for book club's sake.

I do hear much about the hunger games, I should check out those books

avisannschild said...

I want to read all the books you got this week, but especially The Hunger Games. Enjoy your books!

Mary said...

I have got to get hold of Gifts of War. Enjoy all your books!

J.S. Peyton said...

Yay, and yay! You got a copy of both THE HUNGER GAMES and THE DISREPUTABLE LIFE. I really liked the latter, and I'm reading the former now, which is also pretty good. I can't wait to hear what you think of both of these!

Book Escape said...

Glad the book finally made it. Sorry about the delay.

I just got a book of short stories by Jennifer Weiner from bookmooch. I'm looking forward to some laughs.

Dar said...

Looks like some good books there-Best Intentions is a good read. Gifts of War looks good-for some reason that cover really caught my eye.

purplg8r said...

I'm jealous! Hunger Games and The Best of Intentions are both on my WL!

Iliana said...

Unfortunately I didn't like Gifts of War at all but hopefully it was just me and you'll enjoy the book tons!

I've got the Emily Listfield book on my nightstand waiting to be reviewed and I so want a copy of Hunger Games - everyone seems to be loving it!

Enjoy your books!

susan said...

I love deals. $1, Yay! Had a good week. Traffic is picking up in our library so it's been quite hectic. Happy reading.

Toni said...

Right on with your books. Seems Hunger Games is the books of the week.... :) Great mailbox!

Anna said...

I received Gifts of War, too, and it sounds great. I'll be posting it in my double mailbox edition. LOL

I can't wait for the club's thoughts on The Hunger Games.

Happy reading!

That's funny - I got Disreputable History from Borders right after Christmas for $4... I guess they way over ordered! I loved it - I hope you do too!

Ladytink_534 said...

I haven't read any of these but I want to pick up The Hunger Games soon! Enjoy your books!

Rebecca said...

What a great collection! I've been meaning to read Hunger Games, but haven't quite gotten to it yet.

Best Intention seems tobe doing the rounds at the moment. I read it last month and loved it.

Jenners said...

I just reviewed Best Intentions not too long ago and just did an author interview as well. It was quite good, I think you will like it.
