In My Mailbox is a meme that I picked up from The Story Siren's blog. It's where we share the new books that we've gotten for that week with our readers. These books could be from the library, the store, or from the writers/publishers for review. Whatever the reason, I will share my new books every Sunday!
Earlier this month, I had entered a contest to win one copy of Winter's Kiss from Jennifer Echol's website. A couple of weeks ago I got an email from her saying she had extra and asked if I wanted a review copy! I said yes (of course) and it came in the mail this week! This book includes her copy of The Ex Games and The Twelves Dates of Christmas by Catherine Hapka. It's going to be the perfect winter read :)
For a Follow Friday post in late November, bloggers were supposed to make a "wish list" of books they wanted Santa to bring them that year. I posted a bunch of books and then basically forgot all about that post because I never get that many new releases, so I wasn't expecting to get them. Come Christmas morning, I opened a box and sitting in it were these four AMAZING books! I got so excited because I had no idea my mom was going to get them for me. Needless to say, my mom is awesome (who I know is reading this because she always does. Hi Mom!!). I am super excited to dig into these books because I've been pining for them! They all look so amazing and they're all mine! I ended up having a very good Christmas :)
From Barnes and Noble
Along with my four awesome books I got from Santa, I also got a Barnes and Noble gift card! So a couple of days ago I visited the store and came out with these two lovely books :) I'm excited to read these too because they've been on my TBR list for a while and the covers are just so cool! The Predicteds hasn't gotten that great of reviews of Goodreads, but I guess we'll see how I like it!
From Library Sale
This book was on sale for a dollar at the library so I picked it up. It looks like something I would love to read and it's by the author who wrote The Devil Wears Prada, which was an awesome movie. Just another book to add to my ever-growing bookshelf! Maybe I'll read it for the TBR list challenge this year...
Movies from Santa and Half Price Books
Santa was VREY good to me this year! He got me the first four movies (Including the second season of Vampire Diaries, which is the best show ever!!!). The last four I got on sale at Half Price Books and when they were having their 20% sale. So I got tons of great movies to bring back to school with me!
I don't know about you, but I'd say my mailbox was pretty amazing this week! And that's it! I hope you all had a very happy New Year and a great mailbox from the last week of 2011!
