In My Mailbox 38

“In My Mailbox” is a weekly post hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren about what new books we got in the mail (or library or whatever) this week.


A QUICK DISCLAIMER:

I promised my friend Sash a vlog this week. Then I saw my pile of books. A vlog would be long. And absurd. Thus, this disclaimer to point out that I am a spoiled brat and I am aware of the situation. I actually feel pretty embarrassed by all these books. My name is Anna, and I have a book addiction.

Also, pardon my raspy whispery voice…my husband was sleeping. :)

First, my books from the Breathless Reads tour stop out in the ‘burbs:

Born Wicked, Legend

  • Born Wicked by jessica Spotswood
  • Legend by Marie Lu

I met the delightful authors…

Marie Lu, Anna Reads, Fiction Folio, Beth Revis

Marie Lu, Me, Tara & Beth Revis

Jessica Spotswood, Anna Reads, Fiction Folio, Andrea Cremer

Jessica Spotswood, Me, Tara & Andrea Cremer

… and had them sign my books. (Andrea Cremer signed my book last time I met her!) Biggest takeaway of the night? Beth Revis is HYSTERICAL.

Signed copy of Born Wicked by Jessica SpotswoodSigned copy of A Million Suns by Beth RevisSigned copy of Legend by Marie Lu

I adore author events, and this one was an absolute blast.

Borrowed from Melanie:

  • Everybody See the Ants by A.S. King
  • The Lonely Hearts Club by Elizabeth Eulberg
  • Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake

I adore you, Melanie. Thank you!

Gifts from Sash & Em:

  • The Fault in Our Stars by John Green (SIGNED COPY!)
  • Take a Bow by Elizabeth Eulberg
  • Lucky Fools by Coert Voorhees
  • Thumped by Megan McCafferty (JD FOREVER!)
  • The Drowned Cities by Paolo Bacigalupi
  • Smart Girls Get What They Want by Sarah Strohmeyer
  • The Story of Us by Deb Caletti

Goodness gracious, they’ve spoiled me rotten. Girls, you are amazing. Thank you thank you thank you.

Received from Publishers:

  • The Mockingbirds and The Rivals by Daisy Whitney (Thank you, Little, Brown)
  • Abandon by Meg Cabot (Thank you, Scholastic)

Purchased:

Small-Town Sinners by Melissa Walker was just $2.51 for my Kindle — how could I resist?

Received for an Upcoming Blog Tour:

 

Awkward by Marnie Bates

Now, where the heck to start? Then again, this is a good problem! Happy reading, everyone!

    Ahh! You made it out to Naperville for the Breathless Reads event, and I am so jealous. I always want to go, but it’s too far to get there and back on Metra during the week…sigh. I suppose I’ll just continue to live vicariously through you and the other Chicagoland bloggers. :)
