In My Mailbox (9)

In My Mailbox is an Internet meme hosted by The Story Siren to share new books received, purchased, or borrowed.

So here's what I got this week!

Borrowed from the library:
  • We Beat the Street: how a friendship pact led to success by Drs. Sampson Davis, George Jenkins, and Rameck Hunt (for my NJ-teens booklist and also to booktalk at juvenile detention next week)
  • The Unidentified by Rae Mariz
  • Crescendo (Hush, Hush #2) by Becca Fitzpatrick (why didn't I cancel this when I got it for my nook?)
  • Beautiful Darkness (by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl
  • The Curse of the Wendigo (Monstrumologist #2) by Rick Yancey
 eGalleys received from NetGalley:
  • Awaken by Katie Kacvinsky
  • Here Lies Bridget by Paige Harbison
  • Reggie over at The Undercover Book Lover recently held a series of auctions to raise money for the Pakistan Flood Relief Fund (she raised $800!). I won the Lipstick Laws package, which included an autographed copy of the ARC and a ton of swag. The author, Amy Holder, actually emailed me not long ago, apologizing for the delay in shipping, but she wanted to make sure I got some good swag. Well, the package arrived today and It. Is. Awesome.
The swag included bookmarks, business cards, stickers, magnets, buttons, tattoos, 2 wax lips, lip gloss, lipstick, and a very nice note from Amy.
I am so excited to read this book, and super-excited to share it (and all the goodies) with my teens at the library!

What a week! What'd you get?

Enjoy your reading!
