In My Mailbox #11

"In My Mailbox" is a weekly meme created by 

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.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
I hope you are all enjoying being 'green' today ;)

Again, I was NOT going to buy anything this week -
I have accumulated SO many good books in the last 2 months, I really want to get through them all first... but the NEED to have more good ones is just too enticing and hard to resist... dang you new releases! lol... here are two that I got this week...

I bought The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin 
and Wanderlove by Kirsten Hubbard 

I got these two cuties from Gibbs Smith for review: 

2 Baby Lit books!
Little Miss Bronte: Jane Eyre
and Little Master Carroll: Alice in Wonderland
by Jennifer Adams and Art by Alison Oliver
My review will be up on Tuesday! 

Two R.A.K.s for my Nook, from Lori of Romancing the Darkside:
Thank you SOOO very much, Lori :)

Paranormalcy by Kiersten White
I don't know much about this series, but looks good and the cover is so pretty! and
Firelight by Sophie Jordan - I am SO excited to finally start this series - Dragons!!! 

And I love giveaways! I never met a person who didn't/doesn't -
here's some of the stuffs that I won recently and came in the mail this week...

From Kathy of I Am Not A Reader I Am A Writer, an ARC of
Slide by Jill Hathaway (which I am reading right now!)

Thank you, Kathy!!!
I am SO thrilled to have gotten this! 

... and from Kristen of The Book Monsters,
Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins :)

Thank you, Kristen!!!
I've been waaaanting this and Anna and the French Kiss for what feels like a very long time, lol! So since I won this one, I caved and ordered Anna and the French Kiss a few days ago ;)
It's my first time ordering something from The Book Depository, and I am anxious to see how long it takes to get here!

I also won some bookmarks from the author herself, Gretchen McNeil!
The bookmarks promote both of her books:
Possess and Ten (which will be released 9/2012)

Thank you, Gretchen!

And of course, I could never forget to share with you what my boys got this week too :)

Don't Let the Pigeon Stay Up Late! by Mo Willems 
George Brown Class Clown: Super Burp! by Nancy E Krulik and Aaron Blecha 
The Adventures of Captain Underpants by Dav Pilkey 

And that is it for me/us for this week!
What did you get in your mailbox???


  1. Wow. For someone who didn't want to get any books you sure got a lot! :p
    You're going to love Paranormalcy and Firelight. They're really good. And you're so luck! I've wanted to read The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer for forever. And is Slide an ARC?? So many cool books. I'm so jelous :p

  2. Brilliant mailbox! I can't wait to see what you make of Paranomalcy. It's not the best book ever written but it is a quick fun read. :) I hope you'll like it! Enjoy all your new books!

  3. OMG OMG OMG I'm so jealous. I totally want these baby lit books. Will you be reviewing them?

  4. Wow! Amazing loot!! I've been wanting to read Paranormalcy. --Anna & the French Kiss is great! Haven't read the sequel yet. --My son likes Capt. Underpants.

    Thanks for stoppin' by my blog. What a coincidence, I'm also just missing 4 and 5 of the Harry Potter series ..though 1-3 paperbacks and 6-7 hardback so I'm missing a lot to make them match. :)

  5. I loved Mara Dyer, Wanderlove, Paranormalcy, and Firelight. Ah-may-zing books! It's just Firelight has a horrible cliffhanger, and Vanish has an even WORSE cliffhanger!!! Gah. I read Vanish early, too, so I've been waiting for a really long time for Hidden. x|

    enjoy them all!!!

  6. Great Haul! Now we all know who has all the luck! I cannot wait to read Firelight! I absolutely loved Paranormalcy. Enjoy & Happy Reading.
