In My Mailbox

In My Mailbox was created by Kristi of The Story Siren.


This week I ended up going to the library and I got two books.  They are:


An Abundance of Katherines by John Green



When it comes to relationships, Colin Singleton’s type is girls named Katherine. And when it comes to girls named Katherine, Colin is always getting dumped. Nineteen times, to be exact.
On a road trip miles from home, this anagram-happy, washed-up child prodigy has ten thousand dollars in his pocket, a bloodthirsty feral hog on his trail, and an overweight, Judge Judy-loving best friend riding shotgun but no Katherines. Colin is on a mission to prove The Theorem of Underlying Katherine Predictability, which he hopes will predict the future of any relationship, avenge Dumpees everywhere, and finally win him the girl.

Blood Roses by Francesca Lia Block


What shall we do, all of us? all of us passionate girls who fear crushing the boys we love with our mouths like caverns of teeth, our mushrooming brains, our watermelon hearts?
In these nine tales of transformation, what's real is what's imagined, and the seemingly ordinary gleams with the magic of possibility.




And that was my week in the way of books.  Can't wait to see what everyone else got.
