This. Is. Epic.

I know I should have waited for an In My Mailbox post, but I haven't done one for over 2 months (oops?... I have the pictures... do you think I should post them? that's about 10 weeks of books...) Plus, this is just too epic to keep to myself.

I was completely shocked this afternoon when a Fed-Ex truck pulled up to my house and dropped off a package from Random House that I had no idea was coming. I immediately opened it and found FIVE ARCS! But that's not the best thing... One of them was:


That's about when I freaked out. It's not coming out until September 22nd, and I haven't heard of any bloggers that have gotten it yet. Please comment here if you get it, or any of the books on this list. I'd like to know so I have someone else to celebrate with.

Here are the other books I got:

- The Treasure Map of Boys by E. Lockhart (July 28th) I have to read the others in this series first.
- (Re) Cycler by Lauren McLaughlin (August 25th) - I need to read Cycler first.
- Castration Celebration by Jake Wizner (May 26th) ... No, it's not what you think.
- Fat Cat by Robin Brande (October 13th) - Never heard of it, but it looks good.

I'll try to post pictures later, but my computer can be infuriating (partly why I never got to posting those In My Mailbox posts), so don't count on it.

I'll be posting a review today or tomorrow for a book that I just read and enjoyed. It's being released tomorrow, if that's a clue. It also has a hot pink cover.

And I'll also be having my first contest!!! So keep watching for it!
