In My Mailbox 2/5/12

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 am really trying to stick to my book buying ban, but it's not working so well. It's not a really set ban, but I really want to get through some books before buying more. So besides highly anticipated books and pre-order books I am really trying not to but any. I am really doing good for me. :)


This week I bought
  • Cold Kiss by Amy Garvey (ebook) I got it for only $1.99, don't know how long it will be on sale!
  • Accordance (Significance #2) by Shelly Crane (ebook)

















For review
  • On the Island by Tracey Garvis-Graves (ebook) I will be part of the blog tour for this book in March

Won or Gifted

  • The Family Storybook Treasury (won from Katie @ Mundie Kids)
  • Signed swag from Marrisa Meyer (for helping promote the release of Cinder)
  • Swag from Andrea @ The Bookish Babes




Have I ever mentioned how much I love bookmarks?!! I got lots of bookmarks this week! :)

Big thanks to Donna Brown and Tracey Garvis Graves for On the Island, Katie from Mundie Moms/Mundie Kids, Marrisa Meyer, and Andrea @ The Bookish Babes. I would love to see what you got this week, so just leave me a link and I will check it out. Love you guys!!

  1. Cold Kiss looks and sounds so good! I really want to read that. I've not yet read Significance, but I'd love to read that too. I hope the second is as good as the first, if not better ;) I love that swag, too!

    I'd love it if you visited me!

    1. I have actually heard a lot of mixed reviews about Cold Kiss. It sounded good to me right before it came out. Then I put off getting it since I heard a lot of negative reviews on it, but for $1.99 I couldn't pass it up. I hope I like it. I know a lot of people loved it. I love swag!! I get all giddy whenever I get it! :) You can never have too many bookmarks or stickers.

  2. I check Cold Kiss out from the library. I want to read it this month. I'm trying to limit the amount of books I buy too...at least while I get through some of the books I have on my shelves. So many books, so little time.
    Hope you get through some of those books on your shelves :)
