In My Mailbox 1/22/12

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.

I bought

  • Hallowed (Unearthly #2) by Cynthia Hand ebook
  • Fated by Sarah Alderson
  • Wither by Lauren Destefano











Aren't they pretty? I should have gotten a physical copy of Hallowed too.

For review


  • Shift (Protector #2) by M.R. Merrick
 All I have to say is SQUEE!! AHHHHH OMG!! *Dies a little* Matt I friggin love you!!!  (In a completely non-creepy and professional way lol!)Yup that's how excited I was about this one. I am reading it now. (Well, by the time this posts I will probably be done.)

I won

  • The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory 
I won this from the awesome Deanna at Paperback Daydreamer


That's all for this week. Special thanks to Matt Merrick! He seriously made my whole week! I have been dying to read Shift since finishing Exiled. I finished the book I was on and dove right in. :) Also big thanks to Deanna. You rock, and thanks again. And of course I forget most of the time to thank the hubs. My obsessive reading really annoys him, and he hates it when I talk about my blog, but he still supports my book buying habit. Not that he will know I thanked him, but it makes me feel better to throw it in there once in a while. ;)

I would love to see what awesome bookish things you got. Leave me a link in the comments and I will hop over to your blog as soon as I get a chance.

  2. Yay for Fated and Wither! Not read Unearthly or Exiled yet but the sequels look good! And Another Boelyn Girl was a decent film, I'd definitely be curious about the book! Hope that you enjoy all of your lovely new reads this week! :D

  8. Wither definitely looks pretty. Haha, my boyfriend doesn't read my blog either, but at least he isn't that annoyed by me going on about stats and followers and reviews. He gets to talk about all of his games without me interrupting him either (:

    I hope you enjoy your books!
