Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia from The Printed Page where readers get to share the books that came into their house last week.

I was so thrilled to get The Passage by Justin Cronin (bought from The Book Depository) as I have read so many rave reviews about this one! I cannot wait to read it, but then I have to confess I am a little intimidated of this chunkster.


What books came into your house last week?



Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Eva and Marg that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library. If you’d like to participate, just write up your post-feel free to steal the button-and link it using the Mr. Linky any time during the week. And of course check out what other participants are getting from their libraries!

I found a few YA books which I look forward to reading them soon:

1) Nothing Like You by Lauren Strasnick

2) Leaving Paradise by Simone Elkeles

3) And Both Were Young by Madeleine L'Engle

  1. I'm still fighting temptation to buy this one. I don't know how long I'll last though. LOL


  2. In spite of all the pages, it really goes very fast! :--)

    Wendy - LOL, I know what you mean. I just couldn't resist buying this one considering that it's a chunkster!

    Rhapsody - I look forward to reading it... I'm just waiting for the right mood to strike. ;)

    WOW I admire your bravely to buy that chunkster book LOL! But I know what you mean about being intimidated of it, cause I went to B&N yesterday (it's 1:36am Mon now) on Sunday and saw it on table. My first thought was WOW that is big book ;)

    Julia - I just can't resist the temptation, LOL. It's like that book is calling my name! :P

    Ooh, some very cool books there. Whenever I go to The Book Depository, I can't help myself - I have to get an abundance of books! I can't just get one. You must have some strong willpower. ;-)

    I read a very good review of the Justin Cronin book and now I want to read the book! It'll probably be a while before I get to it but oh the anticipation!

    You'll have to let us know how it goes.

    I started The Passage last Tuesday morning and am only 1/3 way through. Believe it or not, I read quite a bit this weekend. Anyway, I like it so far and plan to savor the entire 800 pages. I hope you enjoy it!

    I have The Passage to read as well. I agree it's quite the chunkster but I sometimes really like one of those in the summer.


  10. Melody Says:

    Ceri - Book Depository is an addictive place, isn't it? :P

    Iliana - Initially I wanted to wait a while before getting The Passage but well, it seems like I've no self control when it comes to buying books, hehe.

    Kristy - Ooh, I can't wait to hear your thoughts on it!

    Dar - It does make a perfect summer read, isn't it? I'd love to read this at a beach. ;)


  11. Everyone's been talking about The Passage. I'm looking forward to your review.
