In My Mailbox (81)

Happy Easter! (If you celebrate. If not, Happy Sunday!)

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!

There was all the goodness that was had at the mega Books of Wonder signing--I won't repost that here but you can read all about it by following this link. Still, I will post the picture of the books I purchased at Books of Wonder (these are all signed!):

Won in the Authors for Henryville raffle: The Mephisto Covenant: Book One by Trinity Feagan:

Won in a contest over at From the TBR Pile: an ARC of Alienation by Jon S. Lewis (thanks, Kari!):

Not really in my mailbox, but look at the big purchase I made this week!

That's right, I joined the 21st century and upgraded to a smartphone. And not just any smartphone, but an iPhone! I have to say that after just one full day, I. Love. It. I love that the iCloud syncs everything between my Mac & the phone,  I love that I can take (decent) pictures easily, and I love having access to the internet whenever I want. (We'll see if I'm still feeling that love when the first bill comes in LOL)

One of the first apps I put on my iPhone was the Kindle app, and the first book I got (for free) was Night Swim by Jessica Keener. Pretty sure it's not a YA book, but it was free and I wanted to see how the whole Kindle-on-the-iPhone-thing worked, so...

  • Stolen by Lucy Christopher (for some reason my library has YET to purchase this book, and it's a strong contender for the local high school's summer reading list, so I finally broke down & purchased it. I figure that I can give it out as an honor book this summer.)
Borrowed from the library:
  • The Night She Disappeared by April Henry
  • Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Raoul Dahl (we're doing a "Read a Movie" program at the library. Pretty sure I own this, but was too lazy to go downstairs and check.)
What did you get?
Enjoy your reading!
