I don't know about you guys, but I generally work on my IMM during the week, so I don't forget to post anything. So I'm typing this draft on Monday evening. I came home from work today to find SEVEN packages waiting for me. SEVEN. One of them was a gift I'd ordered for my mom, and two were gifts from dear friends (that went right under the tree, so as of this writing I don't know what's in them), but four packages were all book related, and they were all won!
Packages #1 & 2: Won from PAYA Auction:
I won the Elizabeth Scott package, which was a signed copy of Grace and a second copy of my choosing. I chose Living Dead Girl, naturally (while a difficult read, it's definitely one of my faves). For some reason (but I'm not complaining!) I got two packages--one with Grace and Love You, Hate You, Miss You (which I've already read & loved) and the second one had Living Dead Girl and Stealing Heaven (which I haven't yet read). Squee!!!
Here's a pic of the autograph inside :
Package #3: Won from a contest over at A Life Bound By Books: The Jumper Chronicles: Quest for Merlin's Map by W.C. Peever
Package #4: Won from The Candymakers Book (by Wendy Mass) website:
OMG Can you stand it?? To be honest, I entered this contest for my daughter months ago and promptly forgot all about it. She happened to be standing there when I opened it and spotted this, which means I have ZERO chance of getting any of the candy:
Here's a closeup of the candy, all from Dylan's Candy Bar:
This is such an awesome prize, and I'm so happy I (i.e., my daughter) won LOL I'd wanted to meet Wendy at the Collingswood Book Festival, but didn't get the chance.
But wait! There's more! Books I borrowed from the library:
--Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
--Rosebush by Michele Jaffe
--The Gift (Witch & Wizard #2) by James Patterson
Will probably post a separate IMM for any books I receive for Christmas, so stay tuned!
Enjoy your reading!
