In My Mailbox
In my Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren. The idea of In My Mailbox is to bring books to the attention of blog readers and to encourage interaction with other blogs.
So I know this is a bit late but I’m glad I didn’t have time before. Today was a great book day for me!! Here’s what I got this week:
The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting. I won this from a photo contest on Sophie Jordan’s site. It came with fun Firelight swag. (My Firelight review here.)
A Visitor’s Guide to Mystic Falls short story collection. This is from Kiersten White’s blog a few weeks ago but forgot to post it! (My Paranormalcy review here.)
Aries Rising by Bonnie Hearn Hill. Figment had a Twitter contest giving away a few copies of this one. Obviously I won one.
Princess of Glass by Jessica Day George. I’ve had this on hold at the library since I read the first one (Princess of the Midnight Ball, a retelling of the twelve dancing princesses.) It FINALLY came in!
Wish by Alexandra Bullen. You may remember that I got an ARC of the companion novel. It looks good so I picked up the first one while I was at the library picking up the audiobook of Zombies vs. Unicorns by a ton of really amazing YA authors.
The Clone Codes by The McKissicks. I’ve been meaning to read this book since I heard about it at a seminar last year. I received a ARC of the sequel so I grabbed this one from my middle school library.
I’m really excited about these! I bought them for a giveaway I’m doing in December because of this post. All are signed copies. I might have to keep one or two
The Demon’s Lexicon and The Demon’s Covenant by Sarah Rees Brennan. I LOVE these books. Sarah Rees Breenan is so talented and all around delightful. I ordered these books from Murder by the Book in Houston.
Evernight, Stargazer and Hourglass by Claudia Gray. I saw Claudia Gray in Naperville, IL at a YA Lit conference and again at Anderson’s Bookshop. She was really fun. Anderson’s has a huge selection of autographed books in stock. There is a list here but they have even more!
Not a book but kind of book related:
AH! I leave for the ALAN workshop on SUNDAY! I just got a postcard about the ALAN author reception and my Disney transportation info today. I’m so excited! I had to share I’ll try to blog while I’m there but I’m not sure if I’m going to bring my computer. We’ll see
Well, that’s my week. Sorry it’s so late. I picked up some extra shifts at my waitressing job this weekend. It was crazy. If you’re a parent… please teach your children that they should tip their servers when they go out to eat with friends!
