Forbidden Friday (5) ~ In My Mailbox (43) + My Poison Pile (7)

So here's the deal with this "new meme": I wanted to make an easy title for when I do IMM and my meme My Poison Pile. So I came up with the name of Forbidden Friday, and of course I made up a button (above)! I am not saying the In My Mailbox meme is my own, as it belongs to Kristi of The Story Siren. I have simply put hers and mine together in one post and gave it a general name.

In My Mailbox is a meme hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren, where you create a post of the books you either received in the mail, bought at a bookstore, or borrowed from the library.

NOTE: If you're unfamiliar with how I do things with my IMM, I basically give a little back story to the books I have pictured. Also, if there are ARC's, I'll give a synopsis and date published.

WARNING: I was extremely tired when I did this video, so excuse my slight nuttiness.


My Poison Pile is a meme created here at The Reader's Antidote, which features the next four books that I'm going to read next and a little about why I'm reading them.

Unravel Me (Shatter Me #2) by Tahereh Mafi: So excited to read this!!!! I also got it signed at ALA, so it's been at my bedside since I got it. No, that's not weird...

Scarlet (The Lunar Chronicles #2) by Marissa Meyer: Another one I'm super excited to read!! It's also signed and therefore has also been at my bedside.

City of Lost Souls (The Mortal Instruments #5) by Cassandra Clare: I pushed this back behind Unravel Me and Scarlet because honestly I'm more excited to read those two than this one.

Embrace (The Violet Eden Chapters #1) by Jessica Shirvington: I recently got the second book and I've been wanting to read this for a while. Now, I'll have the chance!


  1. OMG! Your ALA pile is OFF THE CHARTS! I'm expecting you to send these to me when you're done with them :P You won't be needing any books AT ALL until January LOL!!! Enjoy!

  2. Wow so many good books i want here! Im especially jealous of Scarlett!

    Letterbox Love!

  3. I also got Scarlet and Unravel Me, and I agree those two made the whole conference worthwhile. I missed out on some of the ARCs you got since I was stuck in sessions half the time. I will have to look out for some of those once they are published.

  4. Wow, you got A TON of books this week! Hope you enjoy them all!

    Here's my IMM:
