In My Mailbox {11}

This is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren.  Its a great way to show what you won/bought/borrowed each week {or so}.  I might write one each week, but most likely every couple/few weeks... you'll just have to come and check it out!

This week I had a pretty decent haul {some are from late last week, too}.  I even picked up a few Wheel of Time hardcover books at super discounted prices for my brother-in-law, who is obsessed with the series {I've yet to read it - I want to conquer all of the Outlander books first... not to mention my ever-growing TBR pile!}.

I picked up Voyager, The Fiery Cross, Drums of Autumn and An Echo In The Bone {Outlander books 3-5 and 7} from Half Price books.  I grabbed the larger paperbacks, as I've found mass market ones are a little bit harder for me to read with my kiddo running around, and the larger ones I can just leave sitting open at my most recent page.  Also, have you checked out my giveaway for the first two Outlander books??  You should enter!!

I have not read all of the Anne of Green Gables books {yes, I know you're all probably rather shocked}, but I think these beauties will be getting read very soon {thanks Hannah at So Obsessed With for sharing these amazing covers!}.

The Captive Maiden, The Merchant's Daughter and The Fairest Beauty by Melanie Dickerson.  I've read The Merchant's Daughter, and I so thoroughly enjoyed it, then found two of these on sale at a Christian book outlet.  The third was almost half off on Amazon.  Great for fans of historical Christian fiction and retellings {these are all fairy tale retellings, but The Merchant's Daughter read more like historical fiction}.

A few more discounted books I've acquired... I think I need to make a point not to buy any more books that I've not yet read, as my TBR pile is getting rather large...

~ The Red Gloves Collection by Karen Kingsbury - I've read Sarah's Song, as well as a couple other Karen Kingsbury books and really enjoyed them, so at $6 I though this would be a good one to pick up.
~ Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins.  Loved this book so much.  And it finally was discounted on Amazon, so I picked it up!
~ Across the Universe by Beth Revis.  Since I picked up the final in this trilogy, I figured I should try to get the first two as well!  I've heard good things, and am hoping I invested wisely.
~ The Duchess and the Dragon by Jamie Carie.  I love historical fiction.  Love, love, love it!  And this one sounds fascinating!
~ The Lost Girl by Sangu Mandanna.  I actually saw this cross my Goodreads front page a while ago and thought it sounded SO interesting.  Then found it for a great price at HPB, so I picked it up!
~ The White Queen by Philippa Gregory.  I've only ever read one books by Philippa Gregory that disappointed me {mostly because of the nature of some of the content, not the story line itself}.  I watched some of the show that's based on this series, and this was only $2 at HPB.

So there is my major book haul this week!  I will most likely be banned from buying books for quite some time now, but I will have more than enough to read in the meantime *winks*.  What did you get this week?  I'd love to see your IMM, if you'd leave a comment here with a link!
