(Originally by The Story Siren, as "In My Mailbox.") On My Bookshelf is a meme used to share what books I bought from the store, won, or got from the library this week. These will most likely be my next reads so keep your eyes open for their reviews!
So these are the new books I got this week that are now sitting on my bookshelf. Check back next week for some new titles!

Evermore by Alyson Noel! I won this book from Katie, and it's near the very top of my TBR pile. My best friend is reading it right now and she really likes it so far. A little bit about my copy: It's a paperback; published in February 2009; it's young adult; and is the first in the new series The Immortals. You can read what it's about here. Blue Moon is the next in the series, which comes out in July 2009. You can read about that one here.
The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya by Nagaru Tanigawa! ...Hope I spelled all that right :) I got this book in the mail from Little Brown Publishers and I have no idea why. I didn't email them asking for it, I didn't enter a contest for it; it just randomly showed up on my doorstep, so oh well! I don't know that much about this book except that: It was originally a Japanese manga comic book I think? And now it's being made into American novels. This is the first one, I don't know if there will be more.
Made in the U.S.A. by Billie Letts! I won this book and it looks good. A little bit about my copy: it's a brand new paperback; published in June 2008; has an average rating of 4 stars. You can read about the book here.
Of Bees and Mist by Erick Setiawan! I got this ARC from my Barnes & Nobel book club. A little bit about my copy: It's a huge paperback; will be released in August 2009; has an average rating of 5 stars. Click here to read more about the book.
