In My Mailbox 4/15/12 Short and sweet with a special guest

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.

Hi everyone!! I decided to do another vlog this week. I didn't really get much so it's nice and short. I forgot to add something in the video so I will just put it below.  Also my daughter is in the video with me this time!




Books mentioned

Fighting to Survive by Rhiannon Frater ( I bought for my nook) I totally kept saying The First Days series in the video when I meant The As the World Dies series. We can blame it on the distraction from my daughter lol!
Keep Holding On by Susane Colasanti (From Netgalley/ Penguin for review)
Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson (From HaperTeen for review)
Siege by Rhiannon Frater (From Tor for review)

Not mentioned

I also won a whole pack of ebooks from Kody Boye which I forgot to mention in the video

Armorous Things
Love and Other Horrors
My Dead Boyfriend
Wraethworld
Blood
Swords
Sunrise

That's it for this week. Big thank you to Lisa Burstein, NetGalley, Penguin, HarperTeen, Tor, and Kody Boye. Hope all of you have had a wonderful week. Leave me your link and I will check out your post!!

    1. I got it for my Nook. I guess it's pretty hard to find the paperback. I called around and the closest store to me that had it was 2 hours away. :(

    I haven't read any zombie books yet, but I'm told this definitely is a series to check out. It seems to be very popular.

  12. Okay, first off--YOUR DAUGHTER IS SO CUTE. SO. CUTE. *-*

    And second off, AWESOME books. :D Small mailbox, but a wonderful one. So, so, so excited for Tiger Lily. Anything and everything related to Peter Pan is automatically fantastic. Also, I NEED to get my hands on some Rhiannon Frater books. After all the gushing I've heard, well . . . I expect them to be pretty much the best things ever.
