In My Mailbox #40

I got a nice loot of books to show you guys this week! I tried doing a vlog, but I'm just going to have to wait until I get a flip camera. My dinky one made my IMM look like a horrible dubbed foreign film where my words and mouth movement were not matching up at all. I decided to post pictures and divided it up in sections.


For Christmas - I hope you all had a very merry one!

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins (From my sister)
Grimm's Complete Fairy Tales (From parents)
Hans Christian Andersen's Completely Fairy Tales (From parents)
Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A.S. King
Ghost Town by Rachel Caine

The last two books were a gift from my friend Laura who is not a book blogger, but she does manage a Borders Express in Exton, PA. I really want to go to her store some day because she ALWAYS has the coolest authors stopping by! Like Rachel Caine and A.S. King so both of my books were signed!


Also, if you happen to swing by Laura's store, you should tell her to write more Steve. She'll know what I'm talkin' about.

For Review

Tempestuous by Lesley Livingston (Star Book Tours)
The Long Weekend by Savita Kalhan (Teen Book Scene)
The Lying Game by Sara Shepard (Around the World Tours)

Won and Bought

Where She Went by Gayle Forman (Won from the lovely 2011 debut author Courtney Allison Moulton. I AM SO FREAKING EXCITED TO READ THIS!!)
Freefall by Mindi Scott (Bought)


Swag!
Swag was from Laura and Courtney - thanks again girls!!

That's it for me! What did you guys get this week?

Where She Went is the sequel to If I Stay by Gayle Foreman, isn't it? I must add it to my TBR list as I quite enjoyed If I Stay. :)

Looks like you got some great books. Enjoy them! :)

Jessica Secret said...

To say that I am jealous of Where She Went would be a FIERCE understatement. And I'm DYING to read Anna, as well as Viera Dietz.
