In My Mailbox (4)

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.

This is my haul for the past two weeks. I was kind of surprised - I wasn't expecting this much in the mail!

For Review:
The Riddler's Gift Part 1 & 2 Greg Hamerton

(I actually bought the last three with a giftcard I won from Ashlie @ Page Turners Gone Wild)

Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
Minder by Kate Kaynak
Nightshade by Andrea Cremer
The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen

From the Library:
(As you can see, the last three deal with witches. I WAS going to have a Halloween-theme -- witches, obv -- on my blog, but stupid midterms got in the way so I had to scrap that idea.)

The Body Finder by Kimerbly Derting
Firelight by Sophie Jordan
Once a Witch by Carolyn MacCullough
War of the Witches by Maite Carranza
Witch Season: Summer & Fall by Jeff Mariotte

From Giveaways:
(I got these six in ONE DAY. It was the most I've gotten in one day, so I was super excited and did a happy dance!).

Brisingr by Christopher Paolini [Randombuzzers]
Reckless by Cornelia Funke [Won from JL @ An Avid Reader's Musings]
Hold Me Closer, Necromancer by Lish McBride [Won from JL @ An Avid Reader's Musings]

Dash & Lily's Book of Dares (MY FIRST ARC!!!) by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan[Randombuzzers]

From ARC Tours:

You by Charles Benoit

So what did you all get in your mailbox this week? :)

Also, I'm making a mini-announcement. After today, I won't be on my blog until Friday. Well, I'll get on to check on how everything is and to leave a few comments to blogs I follow, and to respond to e-mails and such, but I won't actually be here most of the time. The reason is that my midterm for chemistry is this Thursday and my final grade in the class is riding on how well I do on my midterm. SO, I'm going all reclusive and studying my butt off. I have scheduled reviews and posts, though. I'm trying to type up all my posts before Sunday ends so I can go crazy on caffeine and hit the books. If you absolutely NEED to reach me or just miss me too much and crave talking to me, shoot me an e-mail! :) I will be actively checking that, since I'm also constantly checking for updates with my chem. professor.

So, I'll pretty much see you all next week! (Hopefully I'll still be alive... x_o)

Have a Happy Halloween!!

Since I won't be here to post my Katniss costume and my best friend as Peeta, I'll leave you with an old costume! I was the orange witch, and no I didn't use red contacts.
