In My Mailbox (7)

In My Mailbox is a weekly feature by The Story Siren which allows us to drool with one another over the books that we received or bought this week!

Bought (aka: Preordered in 2011):
All That Bleeds by Kimberly Frost
Lips Touch: Three Times by Laini Taylor

Okay, so first of all, both of these books are SO TINY and SO CUTE.

Seriously, just to compare I took photos of the books by themselves and then with another fairly normal sized book (Under the Never Sky, which has been in a previous IMM).


Not only that but Lips Touch was wait for it... $30.00. Seriously. Thirty. As in 3x $10. Hello most expensive book I've ever bought. Ever. You are lucky you're pretty and have beautiful illustrations AND you were written by an incredible author...

What's in your mailbox :)


  1. Woah, $30? I don't think I've ever even seen a single book priced that high. But hey, it must be pretty good then! :) I love tiny books too, haha. Happy reading!

  2. $30 for a paperback? Wow, I hope you love it! Happy reading, Taneika. :)

  3. Crap. $30 IS a lot to pay for a single book. But hey, if you're into the author (which reminds me, I really need to check out Laini Taylor).

    Hope you enjoy them!

  4. Whoa. What?! $30 for Lips Touch?? :O That's crazy. Where did you buy it? It IS amazing though. I mean, it's Laini Taylor afterall. I don't think she will ever disappoint. Hope you'll like it! Curious which story will be your favourite :D

    All That Bleeds sounds sooo good too. Can't wait to see what you think. ENJOY!

  5. I KNOW RIGHT GUYS! I actually had to order it in to my bookstore and didn't know how much it cost but turns out it was $30 :S So, uh - that's pretty much my prized possession at the moment haha! I can't wait to read the stories though :D Yayyy!

  6. That is weird how small/skinny they are! And $30 is crazy, but if it's an author you support, I think it's great! I'd do the same thing. :)

    Thanks for stopping by, new follower as well

  7. Whoa! I cannot believe Lips Touch was that much!! I've paid more for a book....$35 for a paperback copy of City of Glass anyone, simply because I HAD to have it, but I doubt I'd pay that much. And I wanna read this! LOL. <3 Daughter of Smoke and Bone!
