In My Mailbox -8-

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren. It features books that you bought, borrowed or received from somebody in a week. To join the meme, visit her blog.

Hello there. For this week, I got four books, won, gifted and borrowed. I'm very happy that I received a book last Friday on our Christmas party on school. It was the second installment of Percy Jackson and The Olympians series. I've been wishing to have it but I don't have enough money. 

I borrowed two books from our school library. I was very lucky for our school librarian to borrow books even it is Christmas vacation, and it is free of charge even if I exceed the days of borrowing them. 

I would like also to thank Nina from Brush Up your Reading. I won a novel from one of her contest. I was very happy with that.


13: A Novel by Jason Robert Brown and Dan Elish


Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan


For One More Day by Mitch Albom
Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren

Notice that the borrowed novels are not YA, I know. I just want to read them because my Social Studies teacher recommend it for me to read for me to realize my mission in life.

Tomorrow, I will visit my grandmother and I will blog for one week, but expect a lot of reviews since I will do just plain reading there.

Next year, I will lessen my book buying. I will save money for my best friend who is suffering from MILD heart enlargement. It's not only me who is saving up but we are six. We want to help especially me because he is my best friend. Please pray for him. Thank you!

So that's my mailbox this week!
