In My Mailbox


In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by the Story Siren to highlight all the wonderful bookish things bought, borrowed, downloaded, or received during the week.
 
 
I have been soooo busy with work and such these past few weeks, which has caused me to seriously slack in the blogging department. I've been swapping books with my pops lately. I've started him on YA literature, and he keeps pushing his "grown up" books on me. It's a love-hate relationship. =)
 
Received:
World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair that Changed America
 
It's worth mentioning that I gave my dad Rot and Ruin to read (which he enjoyed) after I saw him reading World War Z. He likes zombies. He also gave me Devil in the White City. I'm not a fan of non-fiction, but this one looks awesome. He says it's "non-fiction that reads like fiction." Score. Oh, and did I mention it's about the serial killer at the 1893 World's Fair?
 
 
Rediscovered:
 
Annexed
 
I'm ashamed to admit this, but I've had this book for at least a year. It was given to me by a publisher at a teacher convention last year. I put it on my shelf with my Holocaust books to read, but I forgot all about it. Until last week... Since April 18th was Holocaust Remembrance Day, I wanted to read something new on the topic. I started looking around in my books, and found this one. I know it's not "new," but in a way it is because it was collecting dust! (I'm hanging my head in shame.)
