In My Mailbox 44

“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.

Oh, this week. Let’s discuss what happened this week.

Well, first of all, my bookish friends Tara, Jen and Jamie visited and we made ridiculous videos during a sleepover. I’m not saying there was wine involved, but…

And we all went to Anderson’s in Naperville and saw Tahereh Mafi, Anna Carey, Cynthia Hand and Veronica Rossi.

Me, Cynthia Hand, Jamie, Tara, Tahereh Mafi and Jen

Anna Carey, Jen, Jamie, Tara, Veronica Rossi and Me

And a bunch of our crazy blogger friends.

Then we went to the RT Teen Day convention, where all this nonsense went down…

Anna and Jen with Richelle Mead

Me, Richelle Mead and Jen (PS: Richelle signed my copy of Vampire Academy with a stick figure drawing hahaha)

Jamie, Tara, Jeri Smith-Ready, Jen, Me

Me, Tara, Margaret Stohl, Stephanie Perkins, Jamie and Jen

RT Teen Day Veronica Roth

Veronica Roth and Me

Me and Kiera Cass

Me and Ally Carter

Oh man, so many other authors I didn’t get pictures with too. Sarah Rees Brennan and Rachel Caine signed book plates and bookmarks for me…Kimberly Derting gave out nail polish. It was amaze.

Oh! And here’s a rundown of my actual new reads:

Purchased:
Shift by Jeri Smith-Ready (wanted to own my own copy!)

Gifted:
Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore (from Sash & Em)
Shattered Souls (RT gift bag)
The Springsweet by Saundra Mitchell (RT gift bag)
The International Kissing Club by Ivy Adams (RT gift bag)

Borrowed:
Shine by Jeri Smith-Ready (from Ginger)
Freefall by Mindi Scott (from Ginger)
The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead (from Heidi, check out my spoiler-free review here)
Once by Anna Carey (from Jamie)
Endlessly by Kiersten White (from Jamie)

For Review:
Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick by Joe Schreiber (thanks, HMH)
Illuminate by Aimee Agresti (thanks, HMH)
Cold Fury by T.M. Goeglein (thanks, Putnam Juvenile)
Torn by Stephanie Guerra (from author)
Tempation by Karen Ann Hopkins (via Netgally, not pictured)

Phew. FUN FUN FUN if you’re into books!

    I couldn’t even laugh at this video because I was so engrossed in watching it. It wasn’t until after that I started giggling hysterically. YOU LADIES ROCK. I’ve only been able to meet Jamie, but I’m hoping to meet you guys one day. AND AAHHH Richelle Mead. After meeting Stephanie already, Richelle is next on my To Be Stalked list. I want to cry because you have ENDLESSLY and Bitterblue! Feeling loads of happy sads right now. And I’ll be reading The Golden Lily next week AND I JUST CAN’T FREAKING WAIT. Need to know what happens next N-O-W.
