In My Mailbox #21 & Sunday Confessions #16


In My Mailbox is a meme hosted every week by The Story Siren. To find out how to participate and the "official" details, check out the IMM page.

Anyone can participate in IMM and you are not limited to sharing books that arrive via your mailbox. You can also share books that you've bought or books that you've gotten at the library.

-----------------------------------------------------



Bought at a book sale:

--To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
--The War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells
--Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith & Jane Austen
--Mansfield Park by Jane Austen
--Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
--David Copperfield by Charles Dickens
--The Iliad of Homer translated by Richmond Lattimore
--The Inferno by Dante Alighieri
--A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks

Borrowed from the library:

--The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Brashares
--The Cay by Theodore Taylor
--Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
--Going Bovine by Libba Bray

I had the chance to go to my library's book sale! While we were there, my mom let me check out some books :D. I'm most excited to read To Kill a Mockingbird because we watched the movie in my class this year, and I loved it!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


This meme was started by Marcie @ To Read or Not To Read. She started it as a way to share a little about herself, but to learn about the rest of us as well. She says, "Sometimes its about books and book related topics and sometimes it's not. This is all in good fun and I would love it if you would participate."

This week's question is

"What would you do if today was the last day of your life?"

If today was my last day, I would spend time with friends and family and just be happy. That's the way I want to go out: pleased and happy.
Song this reminds me of: "If Today Was Your Last Day" by Nickelback.

What would you do if today was your last day?

Leave a link to your IMM &/or SC and I will be sure to come by! :)

I would also like to be with my family and husband if it were my last day. They are the most important people to me.

Awesome list of books

Great set! I loved Memoirs of a Geisha. And the Iliad - more than The Odyssey.

You got some amazing novels. I'm jealous. Going Bovine is fun. I liked it. And Austen is always brilliant. Enjoy!

Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! I love reading what you have to say, whether good or bad. (This is not an open invitation to be rude.)

This blog is an award-free zone. I simply don't have the time to pass them on. Thanks for thinking of me, though :).
