In My Mailbox (3)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi of The Story Siren with inspiration from Alea of Pop Culture Junkie.

The idea of IMM is to encourage blogger interaction and expose books to our readers' attention. IMM is a great way to spread the word of certain books that many readers may not have heard of. You aren't limited to books that you've received via mail; you can also include books you've bought or gotten at the library.



I was going to do a vlog for this weeks IMM but my video kept being weird and I couldn't figure out how to fix it in time. So pictures will have to suffice. :P
For the past two weeks, I got:

For Review:
Restored Hope by Brenda Youngerman
No Greater Sacrifice by John Stipa
The Adventures of Annie Marmalade: Quest for the Ronji Crystal by Julian Vaughan Hampton
Do Tampons Take Your Virginity? by Marie Simas
[not pictured; was given a .pdf copy] All Hallows Blood by Raven Corinn Carluk
[not pictured; was given a .pdf copy] stories with bite o,.,o by Raven Corinn Carluk

Thank you Brenda, John, Julian, Marie, and Raven! :)



From the Library:
Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
Spirit Bound by Richelle Mead
Incarceron by Catherine Fisher
The Dark Divine by Bree Despain

I was quite happy with my library haul this week -- Beautiful Creatures and the Dark Divine were my two top books that I've been trying to check out for a while. I was just returning my books one day and BAM! they were on the shelves. :P Cade from Braintasia Books recently told me about county libraries and putting books on hold, so that's how I got a hold of Incarceron (it's NEVER in my local library).

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins [Won from JL @ An Avid Reader's Musings]

@Kristen: Thanks! I was surprised, myself! I've never been lucky in my entire life. ;P

TheBookishSnob said...

Wow you cleaned up with the giveaways this week :) Whats your secret? Thanks for your kindness earlier. There's still no news about my little chi and we're all just sitting around in limbo. I'll keep tweeting updates as I learn more.

Kristina Barnes♥ said...

@TheBookishSnob: Psh I have no idea! I wish I had a secret, like people were so impressed I'd be willing to give an appendage for a book, but all the wins were just plain big ole surprises! :P And you're welcome. I just honestly hope he'll be okay and this worry will just pass soon enough. :(
