In My Mailbox (1)

I'm finally starting In My Mailbox! Credit for this idea goes to The Story Siren (

I've been trying to get this first edition up for the last month, but I've been busy, have slept through the time when I should have posted it, and lost my camera for a week and was unable to take pictures of the latest books. I finally got the camera back and I will be posting the pictures of every book that's come in the mail for the past four weeks. I won't post pictures of the books I've bought myself (not counting online purchases) because that would take forever, but I will list them. But I won't even be going into the library books I've checked out...

Week 1 - 12/28-1/3:

- 3 Willows: The Sisterhood Grows by Anne Brashares - From Random Buzzers. It was a prize.
- The Eyes of a King by Catherine Banner - From Random Buzzers. This one has a story behind it. The whole reason I joined Random Buzzers was to earn enough points to get an ARC of this book. I got the last copy they had, and then I waited... for three months. And I never got it. I e-mailed them and they said that it must have gotten lost in the mail, because they sent it out. So they refunded my points. But then they sent me a hardcover copy for free!

Week 2 - 1/4-1/10:

- Invisible Touch by Kelly Parra - Contest prize.
- Top 8 by Katie Finn - From Book Divas.
- The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan - Contest prize.
- Taken by Storm by Angela Morrison - Contest prize.
- The Wandering Schoolgirl by Gary L. Gallegos and Louis C. Gallegos - Contest prize.
- 100 Girls by Adam Gallardo and Todd Demong - Contest prize.
- The Tales of Beedle the Bard by J. K. Rowling - Contest prize.
- Sucks to be Me by Kimberly Pauley - Contest prize.

Week 3 - 1/11-1/17:

- Sam's Quest for the Crimson Crystal by Ben Furman - Contest prize.
- Far from You by Lisa Scroeder - For review.
- Chicken Soup for the Soul: Teens Talk Growing Up by Various Authors - Contest prize.
- Revelations (Blue Bloods) by Melissa de la Cruz - Contest prize.
- Need by Carrie Jones - Contest prize.
- Wondrous Strange by Lesley Livingston - Contest prize.

Week 4 - 1/18-1/24:

You? Are soooo ridiculous when it comes to contests. Ha. I love it.

You got a lot of great books, though! The Forest of Hands and Teeth looks awesome.

Speed Reader said...

Holy cow! How many contests are you entering that you are winning that many books??

prophecygirl said...

Wow, what a great month for books! I can't wait to see what you think of Wondrous Strange!(if you haven't already read it, that is :) )

KD said...

I officially envy you! I saw 10 books out your piles that I have been dying to read! :D

You had a good month have fun reading!


Yan said...

Hey, this is Yan from books by their cover, and I've been trying to reach you for awhile, but I am NOT getting any of your emails. This is frustrating me to NO END :(

Carol(ina) said...

You won a ton of great books! Hope you love(d) them! :)

Emma said...

Just a note; you're missing an Artemis Fowl book.

In between "Eternity Code" and "Lost Colony" should be "The Opal Deception," which, you'll notice while you're reading, is QUITE necessary for "Lost Colony" to make sense.

I don't want to be pushy, just to maximize your reading pleasure.
