In My Mailbox 4-22-12


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.

The past two weeks I have done a vlog, but this week is just a regular blog post IMM I didn't really get much to show on video so the picture IMM works better this week. I Actually didn't by anything this week. Well, I pre-ordered stuff, but it doesn't count since it's not here yet.

All of this is stuff I won, was gifted, or got for free.



Yay, I got business cards!! They came out really good with the exception of the font color being a little too dark and slightly hard to read. I got them from moo.com for free as a Klout perk. Thank you Klout for an awesome perk.


I won the Hoppy Easter Eggstravaganza giveaway from Lori @ Pure Imagination and it was a book of choice up to $15 from The Book Depository and I chose Kill Me Softly by Sarah Cross because it sounds awesome!! Thank you so much Lori!!

Karina Halle was so nice and sent me an ebook of Red Fox since I couldn't get it on B&N. Thank you so much!!


I got Reverence by Shelly Crane for free on Smashwords. I really liked Significance and I have all the other books in the series, but haven't read them yet. I love Caleb, so I am interested to read this.


I also got The Infects by Sean Beaudoin for review NetGalley / Candlewick Press.


I also got a $50 Visa gift card from my husbands grandpa for my birthday that I will most likely use towards books. :) Thanks so much to lout, Lori, Karina, NetGalley and Candlewick press!! Leave me a link to your IMM and I will check it out.

    1. I am really excited for Kill Me Softly. I have been wanting to read it for a while. I love fairy tale books, especially when they are twisted.

    1. Yeah, I have heard mixed things about Kill Me Softly, but it sounds good to me, so I am excited for it. Now just to get through some books so I have "free time". I love the cards they look really good. I go them with a perk for free. Through that site they are a bit expensive at full price, but they are really nice. They are thick and sturdy.

    1. Yes!! I am really looking forward to Kill Me Softly. When I found out I won the giveaway that was the first book that popped into my head. MOO cards are so nice, but really expensive. I am glad I had that free perk. :)
