In My Mailbox (3)

In My Mailbox is a weekly feature hosted by The Story Siren for us to share the books that have come our way recently.

My aunt passed on to me a few old books that likely belonged to my great aunt when she was a girl.  I was never really into Nancy Drew as a kid (I may have tried reading her when I was too young), but am excited to add these pieces in my collection:

From left to right we have The Whispering Statue, The Bungalow Mystery, and The Secret of the Old Clock, all Nancy Drew mysteries by Carolyn Keene.

And this is The Ghost at the Waterfall by Helen Wells, which comes from a mystery series that features a mystery-solving flight attendant.

I also continue to get a bunch of holds coming in from the library:

World War Z by Max Brooks

I never amass books in the quantities some of ya’ll (Texas flair) do, but I did have some library holds come in this week, which is super awesome.  So here’s what I’ve got on deck…

The Library:

The Fault in Our Stars cover

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green– I waited two whole months to get this one.  And it was worth the wait!!  I’ll post my thoughts tomorrow.

After the Snow cover

After the Snow by S.D. Crockett– I haven’t seen much about this book, other than a lot of “it was weird and I loved/hated it” on Goodreads.  This has left me curious to find out for myself.

The Way We Fall cover

The Way We Fall by Megan Crewe– I am fascinated by representations of disease in popular culture.  So yeah, this caught my attention because it is about an epidemic.

What’s made it’s way to your TBR pile in the last couple weeks?
