In My Mailbox 1/15/12


In My Mailbox is a weekly event hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren to show what bookish things you have gotten in the past week, or month, or however frequently you would like to do it.

There are so many awesome books that come out in January that I couldn't pass them up. I normally get ebooks, but I do love pretty covers, and B&N had fantastic coupon codes so I got a really good deal on these. Hardcovers for less than the ebooks cost. I couldn't go wrong with that. (Besides, aren't those some pretty books? Take that nook, you can't compare to those. Lol!)

Books I bought:



I am really excited to read all of these. I hope to be able to get to them all pretty soon.

Books and Swag that I won or was gifted:


I won this ARC of Everneath by Brodi Ashton from Amanda @ The Fiction Fairy


I won this audio book of Lips Touch Three Times by Laini Taylor from Reading Teen's blog



My fabulous friend Crissy over at The Princess Of Storyland sent me this nice card and her beautiful blog bookmarks. Love ya chick!! 



I won this ARC of Winter Town, and this awesome swag from Bailey @ IBookBlogging

For review:





I got approved to read Shadows on the Moon by Zoe Marriot from Candlewick Press via NetGalley. The cover I posted is different than the one on NetGalley. It is the cover that Goodreads has.

Random House via NetGalley also approved me for Lies Beneath by Anne Greenwood Brown. I am so excited about this one! When they sent me the approval I think I jumped around my living room.

Thank you so much to Amanda @ The Fiction Fairy, Abigaile, Amy, Andye, Austin, and Kit @ Reading Teen, Crissy @ The Princess Of Storyland, Bailey @ IBBookBlogging, Candlewick Press, Random House, and NetGalley. If you want me to check out what's in your mailbox this week, just leave me a link and I will get to it as soon as I can. Happy reading!!

  1. I'm pretty envious of your bookmarks - I've been meaning to get myself several for the longest time, the books I'm reading are riddled with earmarks :(

    These are all familiar titles to me since I've been seeing most of them around in other mailboxes. Winter Town and the Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight look particularly inviting.

    1. I can't wait to read it either. It's not a very big book, so I am sure it's a pretty quick read. The cover is so pretty in real life.

    1. Thanks. I keep looking at The Statistical Probability. I put it right where I can see it, so it's been teasing me while I am finishing up the book I am currently on. ;)I put Cinder where I couldn't see it so I wouldn't drop everything and read it. Haha!

  15. Cinder was good but my fave was The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight! I can't wait to see what you think of it, and I'm glad you liked the bookmarks. YAY!!! You bought some really great books. Enjoy reading them! It's so nice to have some books you can hold and admire the pretty cover of, isn't it? haha

    1. I can't wait to read all the pretty books I bought! I do love the bookmarks, and I can use them with my books that I just got. :) I love my nook, but I am a sucker for pretty covers, so I need physical copies of some books.
