In My Mailbox (37)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren. The books you share do not have to be ones you actually received in the mail. They can be ones you bought at the book store, checked out at the library, or downloaded to your e-reader. The idea is just to share what's on your TBR pile for the upcoming week.

This was a fairly banal week for me book-wise but I have been sick since Wednesday and I just capped off my week by a visit to the ER. Fever and abdominal pains have kept my online presence very minimal.

For Review:
The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente

Library Loot:
Michael Symon's Live to Cook: Recipes and Techniques to Rock Your Kitchen with Michael Ruhlman
Guy Fieri Food: More Than 150 Off-The-Hook Recipes with Ann Volkwein

How ironic is it that the only holds that came in from the library this week were cookbooks when I've been subsisting on saltines, chicken broth, and gatorade for the past four days? I can't wait until I'm feeling good enough to actually set foot in the kitchen again.

Anyways, what do you get in your mailbox this week?


  1. Thanks for stopping by mine!

    I hope you get to feeling better so you can enjoy your cook books! I've been sick myself, not fun at all.

  2. While you may not have felt like cooking, being sick is a great time to catch up on some reading. I hope you feel better soon, and enjoy The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making. Happy reading! (my IMM)
