In My Mailbox (2)

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren and inspired by Alea from Pop Culture Junkie.

I just got my brand new laptop charger this last week, so I can actually update my blog now, instead of having to indure pain by going on the virus contaminated house computer. So, the books I list will be books that I've recieved for the last two or three weeks.

Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson

This was a birthday present from my friend Paula. She knew I had been wanting it, but I was still suprised she got it for me. I love the cover, and everything Laurie has written, so I'm super excited to read this one!

This Lullaby and Lock and Key by Sarah Dessen

My friend Anfisa got me both of these for my birthday. I am so happy to have gotten the paperback of Lock and Key because I love this cover way more than the hardback. These both look really nice next to my other Dessen books.

Fighting The Current by Heather Waldorf

I won this book from the Random Contest over at The Shady Glade. I had never even seen this book before, but when I read the description I decided I had to read it. I was so excited to recieve it so quickly, and to find out it was a hardcover. I am obsessed with hardcovers (I think they look better in my bookshelf). Thanks so much for this book Alyssa!

Peace, Love, and Baby Ducks by Lauren Myracle

This was from another contest I won from playing a guessing game on an interview between Lauren Myracle & Little Willow. I've only read one novel by Lauren, and a short story (from Let it Snow), So I'm excited to read more from this author. Plus, I think the book looks adorable.

Leaving Paradise by Simone Elkeles

I went down to Powells a week or two ago, and my mother bought me this one. I usually have to buy my own books (It is my addiction, afterall) but my mother was being generous, and paid for it. I love my mommy.

I know it's over by C.K. Kelly Martin

This was another contest win (I think it was my birthday that was making me lucky) over at Writer Musings. I've actually been wanting this one for awhile, and can't wait to read it!

and last but not least....

Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen

My sister and I went to Barnes and Noble on my birthday yesterday, so she could buy me this. It was the only one left in the store (at least from what I saw), and I kept staring at it on the way home. I have to read this one fast because a lot of people want to read it after me.
So, that's all for me, what did everyone else get?


  1. Haha I'd be staring at Along for the Ride too on the way home. Happy birthday! I Know It's Over is a really amazing, great book. Enjoy!

  2. Oh wow, great books. I just finished reading I Know It's Over, it's really good. I've also read Leaving Paradise, Along for the Ride, This Lullaby, Lock and Key, and Wintergirls haha. And I can say that they're all amazing. I hope you enjoy them!!=D
