In My Mailbox (11)

Yesterday I hit my 100th post, which was my interview with Eve author, Anna Carey! Also, it's been just over 3 months since I started this blog AND I'm almost to 100 followers! That means awesomesauce for you guys.  Besides the swag giveaway that's still going on until the end of October, I'll be posting soon about what I think is a pretty great giveaway. All these signings I've been going to will actually benefit you guys as well! Look for that post sometime this week.

In My Mailbox is a meme posted by Kristi over at The Story Siren, where you create a post of the books you either received in the mail, bought at a bookstore, or borrowed from the library. If you'd like to know my thoughts about IMM, check out the link near the top of my blog called In My Mailbox. Simple, right? Anyway, onto the books!

NOTE: If you're unfamiliar with how I do things with my IMM, I basically give a little back story to the books I have pictured. Also, if there are ARC's, I'll give a synopsis and date published.


~Across the Universe swag: This is from the wonderful Beth Revis. Everyone that entered her creative contest received this package: A lovely personalized thank you card, a business card with extra stuff, a signed book plate (which you can see to the right and I've already attached it to my copy of Across the Universe) and two charms. I believe one is a coy fish and the other is a lotus flower. Thanks so much Beth! They're beautiful.

~The Light of Asteria swag: I won this from Patricia's Particularity, and it got me really interested in this book. I'll be giving away one of these postcards in my swag giveaway!!!

~Threads and Flames by Esther Friesner: The title is very provocative and I'm starting to love steampunk books. I'm excited to start this one. I won it over at Squeaky Books, so a special thanks to the lovely blogger!

~Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake: This was on my wish list, so I was very excited when I won it from Alice Marvels, as she was part of the blog tour. I will likely be reviewing this one.


~The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin: A very VERY special thanks to Anna over at Literary Exploration, who bought and mailed me a signed copy of this very promising novel! I will definitely be reviewing this one.

Tune in next week for In My Mailbox (12)! And don't forget to check out the swag giveaway that's going on until the end of October (to which I've already added even more goodies to)!!

I always appreciate comments and cherish every one of them. THIS IS AN AWARD-FREE ZONE. I don't have the time to fulfill the requirements for the awards, but thank you so much for thinking of me. I just ask for no vulgarity, and if you have any issues with my reviews or writing style, please e-mail me instead of commenting. Now, vent to your heart's content!
