What did you get this week?
Enjoy your reading!


  1. How can one person win so much? And get that many siggys? I am totally jealous! And I really enjoyed If I Stay and am looking forward to Where She Went.

    I need to start entering more giveaways. I'd have to win one, right?

  2. @Peep: I know, I was extraordinarily lucky this week! I enter TONS of contests, and believe me, I go weeks without winning anything.

    The Gayle Forman books were won from a post on her blog...she said she closed her eyes, put her finger on the computer screen, and my comment was the one she landed on. LOL I got signed books from Tonya Hurley & E. Lockhart from their book signing on Friday, and really, really wanted an autographed copy of Across the Universe, so ordered from the store that had her launch party.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Wow! Congrats on all your wins! I'm never that lucky even though I feel like I enter 40 contests a week:) Enjoy all those fabulous books!

  4. The Gayle Forman books look really good! I want to check them out at some point.

    And obvi jealous of those signed E. Lockhart's!

  5. Wow! How can you win that many books - and so many signed ones, too? Do you enter in loads of giveaways and contents, or are you just really lucky? I really want to read Across The Universe and Real Live Boyfriends!

  6. @Jenny & Hannah: I think I just had a lucky streak this week. Believe me, there are lots of weeks where I don't win anything! And most of the signed books from this week were purchased.

    Thanks for visiting!

  7. I think you have the most coveted mailbox in all the book bloggerhood! :o)

  8. @Beth: awww, thanks! But I've seen soo many books on other bloggers' IMMs this week that I want LOL

  9. I'm jealous of your winnings and all the signed books! Awesome week for you!

  10. What a great haul! I just stumbled on your site, am a new follower, and thanks for sharing. Love,
    Kristie the YA librarian
    Ha! Must be something to the name

  11. You have Where She Went!! I'm green with envy. Feels like I've been waiting for that books for forever and still gotta wait some more lol. enjoy your books and thanks for stopping by our blog.


  12. @Kristie: must be something to the name. I just popped over to your blog, and not only do we share a name, but we also share a caffeine addiction! Thanks for the follow!

    @Michelle & Library Steph: Thanks for checking out my blog! I feel very lucky to have won Where She Went, and all the others, this week. Perhaps I should have played the lottery, as well? LOL

  13. Hey! Thx for mentioning the book tours!

    I loved Across the Universe SO very much...hope you love it too!

    Enjoy all of those great books!


  14. Sheesh! Lots of great reads this week. I purchased ACROSS THE UNIVERSE this week also, though I'm sorry to say it wasn't a signed copy. I am also insanely jealous of your WHERE SHE WENT ARC. =) Enjoy!

  15. Thanks for stopping by, Maggie! I knew when I saw the reversible cover for ATU that I wanted to own it, and when I found out Fireside would have autographed copies, I decided to splurge on the shipping! And I get to say I supported an indie bookstore--even if it wasn't local to me LOL


Thanks for taking the time to comment!
