In My Mailbox!

So I decided to start one of these. In my mailbox is a meme hosted by the story siren.

I bought 4 books this week that I can't wait to get!

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
The Compound by S. A. Bodeen

Beauty: A Retelling of the Beauty and The Beast by Robin McKinley

Beastly by Alex FlinnAll of a sudden I have really gotten into Fairytale retellings. I think it started after I recently watched Ever After for the 100th time (it's close to my favourite movie ever). Anyways I bought these two because I know Beastly is going to be made into a movie next year (I am not sure what I think about Vanessa Hudgens being the lead but anyways). Beastly is more of a modern retelling of the story which I am super excited for. I also bought Beauty because I have seen that it has had some very good reviews and who doesn't want to read a traditional retelling of the story.

Anyways, that is what is in my mailbox this week or will be hopefully as soon as catching fire comes out because I pre-ordered it.

Great buys! I've read Beastly and Catching Fire and LOVED them. The other two I've heard about, but haven't read yet. :)
