In My Mailbox - July 3, 2011

In My Mailbox is a meme that is hosted by The Story Siren. It's a fun way to share what books we got for the week. They can be from publishers, the library, bought, or whatever. They don't have to be from the mailbox. Mine usually aren't! 


I did well this week, and didn't buy anything! Woo! I did get a couple awesome books, though. :D


The Beginning of After | Jennifer Castle
I won an ARC from the author! She had a contest on her blog, and I actually won! Totally unexpected. She even asked if I wanted it personalized! I'm a happy girl. :D

Gifted (via RAK - see sidebar if you have no idea what RAK is):

 Hourglass | Myra McEntire
Ivy of Ivy Reads sent this ARC to me! Thank you Ivy. :) 

Gifted, just because:

Lisa, from Lisa the Nerd, sent me this super duper cute bookmark! Sweet, right? It was a surprise. I love it! I'm assuming she made it, because it's all crafty and has a J on it. Yay! I was going to share this a few weeks ago on a vlog, but I haven't done a vlog in a while.  : /

For Review via Netgalley:

Tris and Izzie | Mette Ivie Harrison
Surprisingly, this one is just up for grabs! You don't even have to be approved. I hope I can get around to reading this one!

Great week for me! What did you get?


  1. Congrats on winning The Begining of After! It looks great! So does Hourglass. I must remember to look out for that one!

    The bookmark is super-duper cute - totally hearting the pink owl!
