In My Mailbox (6)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme started by Kristi from The Story Siren where bloggers can share what books they've received and what they're planning on reviewing.

So... It's been what, a month?  Sorry for the suckish lack of posts on my part guys :(  So... this week, you get a 3 weeks in one IMM!  If that makes any sense at all.  And you are free to throw rocks at me for not posting a review yesterday... *cries in shame* The reason why I posted an IMM instead of a review is because they take less time to make and for some reason I'm much more focused when I write them up. 

2 weeks ago...

Family by Micol Ostow
What Would My Cell Phone Do by Micol Ostow from Smart Pop YA and Micol Ostow
Enthralled: Paranormal Diversions (anthology) from Jessi @The Elliott Review
Lock and Key by Sarah Dessen from Lulu @
The Bookworm is Here!
The Near Witch by Victoria Schwab *signed* from Irish @Ticket to Anywhere

Clarity by Kim Harrington *signed* from I'm sorry, I really can't figure out who I got this from!  But thank you anyways!


So, it was around this time that I bought my books for school (no, I didn't include them here, I thought you guys probably wouldn't care what they were haha), and I didn't have time to read these pretties... I've started Enthralled and The Monstrumologist, but I'm going to have to put them on hold for a while...  hopefully I'll be able to read them in 2 weeks?  

Psssttt you guys should definitely check out The Monstrumologist, it won a freakin' Michael Printz award and is good so far.  Was almost discontinued by Simon and Schuster because of lack of sales, but now they're going to publish the fourth book because of the awesome fans who fought for this series.   

Last week...

City of Ashes *signed*, 
City of Glass by Cassandra Clare *signed* from Kimberly @In the Outhouse

Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment
Maximum Ride: School's Out-Forever by James Patterson from Alice, my friend who is moving to Australia and couldn't bring these with her :(

So excited when I saw the TMI books, like you have no idea.  Love this series but I don't own any of the books.  Same with the Maximum Ride books, I was obsessed with these books in 6th grade, and have been reading them ever since.  Although I really think it should have ended with the 3rd book.  Anyways, I'm glad that I'm finally able to put these pretties on my bookshelf now.  I was also excited to see Tighter, which I've been wanting to read for a while now.  The author even wrote me a card, and OMG she has the prettiest handwriting!  I should have took a picture... She wrote my name on the bubble mailer and I swear, my name has never looked so pretty.

This week...

Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins
The Near Witch by Victoria Schwab (this is an ARC, which we're giving away HERE!),
Sweep (Volume I) by Cate Tiernan and neat-o swag from Tara @
Wolfsbane by Andrea Cremer from Heather Anastasiu 

Words cannot describe my love for Hex Hall.  As of now, my favorite book I've read in 2011.  Yeah, I've only read about thirty something, but easily my favorite.  So I'm extremely excited to finally own a copy. :) I got a second copy of The Near Witch, so gonna give it away as a part of Karina's Birthday Giveaway, along with Beauty Queens and an ARC of Shut Out!  You know I definitely don't have time to read when I can't even read Wolfsbane, which I've been DYING to read since Nightshade came out.

And some neat-o swag I got!
