In My Mailbox (19)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren which gives bloggers a chance to share the books, swag, etc. that they've received each week.

This IMM is for the past few weeks and WOAH is it crazy. Take a look at the new additions to my bookshelf!

The Green Man by Michael Bedard
Someone Else's Life by Katie Dale
You Against Me by Jenny Downham
BZRK by Michael Grant
The Dragon Turn by Shane Peacock
The Taming by Teresa Toten and Eric Walters
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bartugo (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
Monstrous Beauty by Elizabeth Fama
Delirium by Lauren Oliver (finally, I have the special edition!)
A Witch in Winter by Ruth Warburton
Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake
The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson

Okay, so I have to give Random House Canada the biggest possible thank you. On Wednesday, they hosted a YA Blogger event at their office and it was tons of fun! The first 8 books (that's the entire left side) are from the event and 3 of them are signed. THANK YOU, RANDOM HOUSE <3333 I can't wait to read aaaaall of them! Ooh, and check out this fabulous new bag I got:

Then we have an ARC of Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bartugo. Colossal, sparkly rainbows of gratitude to Mimi AKA the sweetest girl in this world for sending me her extra copy -- I'll be reading it ASAP!

Delirium, A Witch in Winter and Monstrous Beauty are giveaway prizes won from the Valentines event that Brodie and Lisa hosted back in February. Aren't they gorgeous? <3 *hugs*

And, as always, a million thank yous to my library for being awesome.

I hope you had a fantastic reading week!

  7. Yaaaaaaaaaay, YOU GOT SHADOW AND BONE!! :D I'm so happy that it finally arrived in your mailbox! I've had troubles with lost packages in the mail more than once before, so I'm giving a huge sigh of relief that it got to your house safe and sound -- and giving a huge squeal of excitement along with your exclamation marks that you finally have a chance to read it!

    And awwwww, shucks, Sonia, that title totally goes to you too <3 :')

    But I'm even happier that you had fun at the Random House Event! That bag totally describes what I think on a daily basis (*cough* when school is involved *cough*), and all of those books with three of them signed? EPIC AWESOMENESS, SONIA! It sounds like it was a BLAST, and hopefully next time I can come so we can squeal together! ;)
