In My Mailbox #14

A Very Small Week
IMM # 13


IMM is a meme hosted by The Story Siren, anyone can participate telling about what you bought, borrowed or won.

For Review
I participated in a contest hosted on the authors website, well I didn't win the contest but the author passed along my information to her publisher who contacted me and sent me the copy. This was actually a few months ago and I thought maybe the book was stolen, but I guess it was just recently sent out (it is a finished, hardback copy). I can't wait to read this book and the newest cover just got reviled.

Won
I won this book from vvb32 reads it is signed and I got a lot of swag postcards of all her books. I will also be possibly be participating in a blog tour for the books. Helen will be re-releasing the the books since her original publisher went "belly up", she will be self publishing through amazon, they will be available very soon.

I didn't buy anything this week, that is so amazing and sad!

Your toga picture rocks! It is so cute and creative. Love it. I wish she would have been at our stop of Dark Days!

How awesome that you got a copy of the Iron Thorn! I really want to read that one.

Go us not buying anything! It was tough, wasn't it?

I've heard tons of great things about Starcrossed. Looks like a fun read!
Thanks for stopping by Readers Unite! Have fun reading!

Alyssa said...

That toga picture is totally awesome.

Sooo jealous that you're reading Wildefire this week!

Rhiannon said...

Hahahah, I went to an actual toga party in University once. It wasn't really as glamorous as your picture, but that might be because of A- the booze and B- the fact it was like -30 degrees in the dead of March in Saskatchewan. I totally cheated and had long johns smushed up under my sheet (which had care bears on it, the closest I could come to white).
Thanks for stopping by!

Allison said...

I have Iron Thorn too, and I keep meaning to get to it because it looks great - hope we both enjoy it!

The Forever Queen is on my Kindle, I'm not that far into it yet but I'm enjoying it so far. Hope your book by her is just as good!

Thanks for your comment on my blog. I am loving audiobooks too. Just started listening myself. I am currently listening to Need and love it. Julia Whelan does all the voices and love the accents. I want to get a copy of Goddess Test as well. Mine is from the Library. Haven't read it yet but its up next on my list after Passion.

Hey, that's so awesome that they sent you a book. And I love your toga pic. I hope you win the contest! The feeding grapes is a nice touch!

I can't believe you managed to get by without any book purchases. You are a much better person than I am. I'm just so happy I walked past the bookstore today without going in.

Happy reading!

Laci Crawford said...

I love it!

Kristina said...

@ Fiktshun actually it was really easy, I just stay away from the area and I don't have to be tempted. The mall is 35 minutes away from me along with my 2 bookstores.

@Laci Thanks

@Lauren thanks I have my fingers crossed

@Josie thanks for stopping by :)
