In My Mailbox (69)

Thank you for your thoughtful comments about my blogging hiatus. I'm hoping to get a few posts up this week, and will hopefully catch up on my backlog of reviews sometime in the near future. However, I just can't give up the blog all together--I feel that I should have at least have one post a week, and what's more fun than IMM? 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!

From the always awesome and generous Daisy Whitney (thank you!): a signed paperback copy of The Mockingbirds for my teens at the library, with a very sweet note to me (yes, I got all fan girly when I opened it!):


Pre-purchased from the awesome and always accommodating Fireside BooksA Million Suns by Beth Revis, signed and accompanied with goodies!


eGalley received from NetGalley:
  • Pieces of Us by Margie Gelbwasser. I'd loved Margie's debut novel, Inconvenient, and am really looking forward to this one. Margie will be here for another interview and a giveaway soon!
Purchased from Barnes & Noble (using that awesome 50% coupon!):
  • 2 paperback copies of The Hunger Games (to use as giveaways for my Hunger Games Movie Release program at the library)
  • 2 copies of 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher (to get signed at the book tour next week. One will be a summer reading giveaway for my teens--all the high school freshman read it this year, so a signed copy will definitely be a hot commodity!)
  • Tangled by Carolyn Mackler (for signing--plus I'll still be buying The Future of Us next week--hope they don't put a cap on how much I can get signed!)
  • The Unofficial Hunger Games Cookbook: yes, I purchased my own copy. Best Girl got the Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook for Christmas, so now we have a set. :)
  • The Fault in Our Stars by John Green (not part of the 50% sale but I'd preordered it months ago so I could get a signed copy!):

Won in a contest over at Teen Lit RocksHow to Save a Life by Sara Zarr (thank you! Sorry for the lack of picture.)

Received for being part of the Don't Breathe a Word Street team: all this fun swag from author Holly Cupala (thank you!):

Some of this awesome swag is going to my teens at the library, but I think I can manage to create some kind of giveaway over the next week, too...stay tuned!

What did you get?
Enjoy your reading!


  1. Awesome mailbox this week!

    A Million Suns looks quite interesting :)

  2. Great books! Glad to hear you will have a post or two a week, although you need to do what is best for you and your family! I am a high school librarian and relatively new blogger and I enjoy your blog a lot. Thanks for all you do and I hope you have a great week!


Thanks for taking the time to comment!
