  1. What's On the Bookshelf

    Sunday, January 31, 2010

    In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. Go here to find out more.

    This week I only picked up two books but I have been interested in getting to read these for awhile now.

    The Princess Bride by William Goldman
    I was wishing for this a few years ago and now I finally have! Now, I will just need to see the movie as well. I cannot believe that I have gone all these years without reading this classic or seeing the movie.

    Boneshaker by Cherie Priest
    Let's see a raise of hands from everyone who thinks that they need a bit more steampunk in their lives.
    *Raises hand and waves entire arm around with considerable enthusiasm*
    While I haven't seen people shouting the name of this book from rooftops, I have heard good things around it and cannot wait to read it.

      I got Boneshaker as a birthday present back in October and hopefully will get a chance to read it soon. Enjoy!

    4. I am embarrassed to admit how many times I've seen The Princess Bride -- my hubby and I can practically quote the screenplay. :-) I'd love to read the book one of these days. Enjoy your books!

      I haven't read The Princess Bride either... I actually have it out from the library right now just waiting to be read, and the movie is on hold... lol. I hope you enjoy all of your books! :)

      I have a contest running on my blog right now for the book Break by Hannah Moskowitz. Feel free to check it out. :)

      You are in for such a treat with The Princess Bride. Lucky you!

    7. What a great and different cover for the Princess Bride. I haven't read it yet but have seen the movie dozens of times. Happy reading!
