In My Mailbox Sunday #8

"In My Mailbox" is a weekly meme created by 
The Story Siren -
The idea is to post whatever 'books' you may have received from the week (before), whether you purchased them, gifted to you, borrowed, traded, etc.

Hi there :)
It's been an awesome book week for me! The best one yet!!!

Don't they look pretty??? hee, hee
As you can see, I have an empty shelf that needs filling ;) 

First, if you see the post below this one, you'll see that I went to Books of Wonder last Thursday and met Jess Rothenberg, the author of The Catastrophic History of You and Me, and got a signed copy of it :) 

While at Books of Wonder, I was also able to pick up an already signed copy of Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood!!! Woo hoo! 
See, there was a reason why I was not able to get my hands on this book before, lol! 

And while shopping at Target, I was able to pick this one up on sale...
Soul Screamers Volume One by Rachel Vincent  

At the time I had no idea that this book contained: 
My Soul to Lose (Book #0.5), My Soul to Take (Book #1)
AND My Soul to Save (Book #2)
SO happy I got it!!!

And I had ordered a hardback of Graceling by Kristin Cashore.  

There are some books that I just need to have on my shelf, 
and this is one of them! 
I read the eBook when it first came out, I can't wait to re-read it :) 

Intangible (eBook) by J. Meyers 

Already read it and LOVED it!!!
My review should be up later in the week!

Also for review...
The Wedding Beat (ARC) by Devan Sipher
release date: 4/3/2012

Angel Evolution (eBook) by David Estes 

AND, Vaempires: Revolution (eBook) by Thomas Winship
(Tour Stop March 27th, 2012) 

Awesome week :D

  1. Wow you definitely had a wonderful week in books! Hope you enjoy them all-- I read Graceling, it wasn't my fave but I actually think I might give the series another chance and read the next one! :)

    Enjoy reading this week, Margie! :)

  4. I love, love, Graceling! I hope you will too. Happy reading, Margie! :)

  5. I agree! Some books on the shelf just NEED to be in hardback -- the Seven Kingdoms series is one of those for me as well.

    Yay for Books Of Wonder, that is such a cool store.

    Signed books rock. :-D

  6. You got some great books. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Graceling! Born Wicked it really fantastic as well. Enjoy them all.

  7. I just reread Graceling too and it was such a great experience - I forgot how much I ADORED it. Enjoy!

    The Catastrophic History of You and Me and Born Wicked! SO awesome. Cannot wait to get my hands on them and devour them myself. Hope you enjoy. :DDD

  9. Loved Graceling! Such a good book!

  10. Awesome mailbox! I've been wanting to read the Soul Screamers series, so I'm waiting for it to become available at my library. I'm also waiting for Born Wicked. I always read books at the library, or ARCs if I get them, before I buy them... unless it's a series I've been reading for awhile. Anyway, thanks for stopping by!

  17. Another Graceling fan here - I hope you get to it soon :-)

  18. I have the Soul Screamers omnibus, too, and recently read it all. LOVE those books! I got the third book this week, and am so excited to read it.

    The Catastrophic History of You & Me is so good! The ending is amazing and I loved it so much. I would say I'm jealous that yours is a signed copy, but then I remember my ARC is signed, so, yeah. But it looks gorgeous as a finished copy!

    Enjoy and happy reading!

    My IMM.
