I only received one book last week but it is enough to make me very happy:

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

I would have got this book way much earlier if I had not waited for it from the bookstore (they claimed the books have not arrived). I guess I was too impatient to wait anymore so I ordered it from The Book Depository instead. And guess what, I still didn't see the books on shelves the last time I visited the bookstore (i.e. last Thursday) and I am so glad that I didn't wait much longer!

So what books came into your house last week?

    Well, if I were to only receive one book, that would be the one I would want! I can't wait to hear what you think of it!


  3. Enjoy your new book, Melody. There are some books I get impatient waiting for too and so I go ahead and order them online. :-)

    I'm sorry you had to wait, Melody, but I'm glad you have it now! That happened to me once with Harry Potter...number five if I'm not mistaken.

    Hi Melody, so happy for you!

    I did the same thing early last week by ordering from Book Depository and now awaiting its arrival with two other books. Can't wait!

    Kailana - I'm sure I will! :D

    Sandy - I hope you're reading this book with your children soon! Can't wait to hear what you all think of it!

    Wendy - As much as I love brick and mortar bookstores, there're times I appreciate online bookstores and this is a fine example of it. :P

    Nymeth - I'm sure most of us will feel that way when it comes to the books we want to read quickly, LOL.

    Alice - Yes, I'm thrilled to get this book!! I hope you'll receive it soon!

    I'm reading this now. I am loving it.

    Ooooh! I just got this one, too! I haven't read Hunger Games yet, so I think I might read both during the read-a-thon (if I can wait that long!).

    Julia - This trilogy is a must-read IMO! I hope you'll read it too! ;)

    Iliana - I can't wait to hear what you'll think of this when you get to it!

    Serena - Me too! :D

    Trish - I think it's a great idea to read during the read-a-thon, for these books will get you going!
