In My Mailbox #28

 Lots of Book Goodness
IMM #28

IMM is a meme hosted by The Story Siren, anyone can participate telling about what they bought, received and borrowed.

 Since I participated in one of Josephine's photo contest I received a little swag pack consisting of a signed bookmark, chap stick, bracelet, pen and a purple bag to hold it all. I love it all, thanks Josephine.

I won this from Jennifer Laurens contest she was having a giveaway of bad printed stuff or oops name spelling. I won a copy of A Season of Eden, I guess the print color it off, I don't notice anything. I'm super happy. Thanks Jennifer

From Half Price Books
I will be seeing her next Sunday for the Smart Chicks Tour, I haven't read it yet.
This is the whole reason I went to HPBs in the 1st place. My brother in-law gave me his 50% off coupon and the book was listed at full price $20. With the coupon I only payed $10 and I love the pictures in it. I will probably be taking pictures of the pictures to put on my Bookography post.

Wow, you got some awesome loot this week! Congrats on your wins..esp. that STARCROSSED swag pack! And you met Lisa Mantchev? NICE!! I still need to finish reading her series Time, thou art thy enemy! (Or..something like that! lol)

Yay, another bookworm who grew up with Sailor Moon! One of my co-workers was so funny; he was going through the first manga on his lunch break and came back going, "Wow, the villains all died right away! This is so much better!" And I was like, "...I know :)"

Thanks for finding me!

OMG...and I just saw your pic on the right! I lovvvvve your bookshelves! That's exactly the type of display I want one day. Indeed, I need to move back into my own place again (aka...get a higher paying job first...) and have a book room! *drool*

Casey said...

Great books! I've heard good things about Raised by Wolves. Enjoy and Happy Reading!!

Oooh lucky you to have such great author events in your area. I'm looking forward to reading Hellbent, since I liked the first book in the series. I was super excited when I saw it and got it from Netgalley.

Enjoy your books! :)

@books4Juliet I love showing the odd assortment of books that aren't YA or adult books. I love showing off my fairytale and Disney books especially, I'm always so excited when I find an awesome cute old picture book :)

@Backwards Story I love Sailor Moon and I had a friend do some fanart of the girls for me, they are on top of my book shelves. I will have to put up pictures on day of those. I love them.

Thanks, I love my bookshelves so much, but I'm already out of space. I'm thinking I might go through the shelves and pull books that I want to keep but won't be reading and box them away till I can have my library room. I have to wait 5-7 yrs for that to happen but I will making sure out next house has an extra room for a library room.

@Casey I'm looking forward to reading the series, I just hope Ill get to it sooner rather than later

@Jessica I'm am pretty lucky living in Seattle, so many awesome authors live in the area. Hellbent was awesome, I love the series they are so entertaining. I really hope she will be writing more than just 2 books to the series.
