In My Mailbox 6/26

Here's how this works: It's a weekly feature hosted by The Story Siren where we all post what new books we received in the mail, from the library, or contests we won, etc. Click the link for more info and to join in on the fun!

I got some really great stuff this week!! I did try to make a vlog about it like everyone else seems to do, but there was some crazy background noise, so I'm not going to upload it. Pictures will suffice this time until I figure out how to fix that. And even though I was trying to talk loud, it was still really quiet. Anyway!! Let's see what I got, shall we??

First up is the stuff I bought. I ordered Maureen Johnson's The Last Little Blue Envelope and Nova Ren Suma's Imaginary Girls last week when I saw their support for the NY same sex marriage bill. I would really have bought them anyway, but I did it sooner because of that. Thank you, ladies! Also, Nova Ren Suma posted on Twitter about emailing her our addresses to get a signed bookplate. So that's in the picture with the Imaginary Girls card it came in. Thanks!

Now these awesome bookmarks and stickers I got from Jennifer L. Armentrout. There's a Half-Blood bookmark, two Daimon bookmarks, a Witch Eyes bookmark, a A Touch Mortal sticker, and a A Touch Mortal bookmark.. ALL SIGNED! :o) Thank you!! The pictures show the fronts and backs :o)

Okay.. this one gets interesting. First, I received Charmed and Dangerous from Ricki over at My Daytime Drama. I keep winning her giveaways! Anyway, she's the bomb, so go visit her. Then, I won Retribution Falls from DelRay and Spectra on Twitter. Thanks! And here's the interesting part. I have no recollection of entering a giveaway for Torn, but it looks fantastic. So thank you to whoever sent that to me! ;o) It also came with the bookmark pictured on top, and see the white with the two red dots? That's a temporary tattoo of vampire bites. How cute?! :o) Thanks!!

Last but not least, here's what I won from Simon and Schuster and Armchair BEA!! ARCs of Perfect, Fury, Heidi Heckelbeck/Captain Awesome, and The Unwanteds. I'm super excited about Perfect, but Fury has a gorgeous cover!! The other two are for the younger set, but I may check them out too. Boyfriend's kids might like them too!

So there you have it. There's everything I received in my mailbox this week. I also got some eARCs from NetGalley and Galley Grab, so I have a LOT to read!! Thanks to everyone for these books and swag! It's always appreciated. Hope everyone has a great rest of the weekend! Today is Book Club, and we're talking The Handmaid's Tale. Anyone have input on that one?


  1. Hey Mickey - that's a great collection of books this week!

    Fury, The Unwanteds and Imaginary Girls are all on my TBR/wishlist and I can't wait to see what you thought of them!

    Congratulations on the wins! And I am a bookmark junkie, so that swag looks great as well.

    Happy Reading!
