In My Mailbox (33)

Have you entered to win a copy of One Hundred Candles yet?


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--it was a HUGE book week for me!

Literally in my mailbox:
  • The Poison Diaries by Maryrose Wood
  • Life, After by Sarah Darer Littman
(It took me forever to figure out who these were from, as there was no return address on the package. BUT, I remember posting a LOL moment on Elizabeth Scott's blog, and she emailed to say she was sending everyone some YA books. So I'm assuming that's where these came from!)
  • Sweetly by Jackson Pearce (OMG!) and
  • Spoiled by Heather Cocks & Jessica Morgan (both from Hachette--thank you!!)
  • Dead Rules button from Randy Russell. You can enter the Dead Rules Giveaway and get one for yourself!

Long preface: Daughter was at a birthday party Sunday afternoon, and I went to the mall to kill some time. Happened to wander into Waldenbooks and found a bird book for my mom (she's very fond of watching the millions of birds that hang out in her backyard). Then I wandered about the (admittedly small) YA section. I recently made the decision to own a copy of every Elizabeth Scott book, and the store had one, so there you go. Then I found another book I had to have, and then I decided that since everything in the store was Buy 4, Get 1 Free, I might as well buy 5 books LOL So here's what I got:
  • Perfect You by Elizabeth Scott
  • Low Red Moon by Ivy Devlin (see above)
  • Party by Tom Leveen (I've wanted to read this forever. This was my free book.)
  • The bird book for Mom and a 39 Clues book for Daughter.
Won from a contest over at The Book Butterfly:
  • ARCs of Stay by Deb Caletti and Between Here and Forever by Elizabeth Scott (I already read both of these as eGalleys, but I cannot wait to share these with my teens at the library! Thanks, Kim!)

Won from Elana Johnson, author of the upcoming novel Possession:
  • I was "tagged in a contest she had done (I think on Facebook), and was given a top-secret website to claim my prize. I don't know if I'm supposed to share what it is, though.
Purchased and autographed at NJLA Conference (I'm hoping to have a blog post up soon with more details on the conference!):
  • Head Games by Keri Mikulski
  • Viola in the Spotlight by Adriana Trigiani

(Adriana was absolutely amazing as a speaker, and hello! She thinks I'm the world's best YA librarian! LOL)
  • Hush by Jacqueline Woodson
  • The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy and Goth Girl by Barry Lyga
  • Something Like Fate by Susane Colasanti
  • Accomplice (one of my top 10 of 2010) and You Remind Me of You by Eireann Corrigan

Downloaded to my nook:
  • Dead Girl Walking by Linda Joy Singleton (free at Barnes & Noble, and I think other places, too!)
Borrowed from the library:
  • Sweet Valley Confidential by Francine Pascal (FINALLY!)
  • 10th Anniversary by James Patterson
Whew, what a week! What did you get?

I hope all you moms out there are having a wonderful day! Last year Hubby and Daughter gave me an incredible Mother's Day--hope this year is just as good!

Enjoy your reading!
