In My Mailbox (12)

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.
Lots of contemp in my mailbox!  For some reason I've been in a contemp-y mood so I really don't mind :)

Last Week:
Stick by Andrew Smith from Lena @Addicted 2 Novels
Without Tess by Marcella Pixley from Lena @Addicted 2 Novels

This week:
The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson from Andrea @Aine's Realm
13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson from Amanda @Maestra Amanda's Bookshelf
The Last Little Blue Envelope by Maureen Johnson from Amanda @Maestra Amanda's Bookshelf
Five Flavors of Dumb by Antony John from Amanda @Maestra Amanda's Bookshelf

So, this week I went from owning 0 Maureen Johnson books, to owning 3 :)  I still have yet to read a Maureen Johnson book but hopefully I'll get to these soon.  (Yes I know, huge fail on my part.)  And I definitely squeed seeing Five Flavors of Dumb because it is one of my favorite books I've read this year!  And one of my favorite contemps of all time!

And by the way, I'm working on a review right now!  My first review in almost 6 months.  Yeah I know, what a fail.  The reviews for the past couple of months have all been written by the fabulous Karina.  So hopefully in the future I can find a balance between reviews and memes/randoms stuff.

That's it for my mailbox!  What did you get in your mailbox this week?
