In My Mailbox (May 15, 2011)


In my mailbox credit goes to The Story Siren


Yeah, I'm going to say it - I got so spoiled this week! TWO signed and personalized books :)! Yippee.

Bought:
Nightshade by Andrea Cremer - I love, love, love this gorgeous cover. I've read this already, and I'm just working on my review, so stay tuned!
The Marbury Lens by Andrew Smith - I had told myself not to buy any books this week, and I did pretty good (bought only Nightshade as a Mother's Day present to myself) and I wasn't going to get this one, but when I read this sentence -"The Marbury Lens crawls inside your head and wont leave. Scary, creepy, awful and awesome" -  Micheal Grant author of Gone and Hunger - at the top of the book, I knew I had to get it, plus it was on the bargain shelf of the bookstore.

Free:
Graceling by Kristin Cashore - found this one for free, and I've seen a few decent reviews about it, so why not!?

Won:
Haunted by Joy Preble (signed!) - I won this from a twitter contest! And the cover is even prettier up close.
Losing Faith by Denise Jaden (signed!) - This was from the "Hoppy Easter Eggstravaganza Blog Hop". I was so excited to win this book - I've been meaning to read it for ages now, as it's part of the Contemps Challenge. Very happy about this!

We also had an exciting day yesterday - I heard that there was a "Meet Geronimo Stilton" event happening about a half hour away from us, so we went! Daughter got to meet him, which was fun (though she was a little nervous!) and we picked up a few books, and Geronimo himself signed one for her!  



All in all, it was a great week for bookish fun!

What did you guys get this week in your mailbox?

I liked Graceling, but I LOVED Fire! LOVED!
I got The Marbury Lens and I'm not liking it at all. But since you picked it up because of the blurb then you may love it. It's definitely weird and crawls into your head. I don't know that I'll finish it.
Great book week though!
