In My Mailbox (22)

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

Here's what I got this week!

Purchased:
  • Lessons From a Dead Girl by Jo Knowles (I've wanted to read this forever. My library doesn't own it and it's not available for my nook. Barnes and Noble sent me a coupon, and I get free expedited shipping for being a member, so I "splurged"--$6.90)
Downloaded to my nook:
  • Rival by Sarah Bennett Wealer
  • Angel by James Patterson
Received from publishers:
  • ARCs from Disney-Hyperion--thank you!:
    • Putting Makeup on Dead People by Jennifer Violi
    • Sharks & Boys by Kristen Tracy
  • Finished copy from Tor--thank you!
    • Jack: Secret Vengeance by F. Paul Wilson (#3 of Young Jack trilogy)
eGalleys:
  • from Simon & Schuster's Galley Grab:
    • Between Here and Forever by Elizabeth Scott (squee!)
    • Boyfriends with Girlfriends by Alex Sanchez
  • from NetGalley:
    • The Last Little Blue Envelope by Maureen Johnson (squee!)
    • Bumped by Megan McCafferty (double squee!)
    • Long Gone by Alafair Burke (not YA but sounds really interesting!)
Won:
  • From a contest at GalleysmithMermaid's Mirror by L.K. Madigan
For review, from I am a Reader, Not a Writer (from "Free to a Good Home: Books Needing Review"):
  • Googlelize Your Life by Jeff VanDrimmelen
Borrowed from the library:
  • Hate List by Jennifer Brown (to re-read before I booktalk it at juvenile detention next week--for the first of our Great Stories Club booktalks!
Lots of great stuff, no? I think I'm going to prioritize and read all the eGalleys once I've finished Hate List.

Please forgive me for not responding to comments today. My daughter and I are on a much-needed mommy-daughter road trip. If you'd like, I'll tell you all about it when we get back!

Enjoy your reading!

  2. Ooh, I'm so jealous that you got a copy of Putting Makeup on Dead People and Bumped, because I've been dying to read both of those books for ages now. Anyhow, happy reading, and hope you and your daughter have a fantastic time on your mommy-daughter road trip! :)
