In My Mailbox (22): The Birthday Edition!

In this meme, hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren, we share the books we've received, bought or taken out from the library.

I celebrated my birthday today, so I waited to put up my IMM post until after I'd opened presents (books are, of course, a given :D).


The Writer's Guide to Psychology: How To Write Accurately About Psychological Disorders, Clinical Treatment and Human Behavior by Carolyn Kaufman

Waterfall by Lisa Bergren

Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys

The Penderwicks by Jeanne Birdsall

Please Don't Be True by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor (a 3-in-1 compilation of some books in the Alice series that I don't have yet!)

When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead

For review:

Possession by Elana Johnson and Divergent by Veronica Roth (as part of A Cornucopia of Dystopia)

Griffin Rising by Darby Karchut (from the author - thanks Darby!)


Once Every Never chapter sampler by Lesley Livingston (signed!), from Midnight Bloom Reads – thanks very much Liz!

Liz also went to a signing by Lisa McMann and got her to sign a card to me :) Awesome!

From the library:

Castle Waiting by Linda Medley

Choker by Elizabeth Woods

Picture Perfect by D. Anne Love

And you know me and library discards...I just can't resist!

The Deep by Helen Dunmore - this is the 3rd in the Ingo series, and I own the first one but haven't read it yet...I've had this series recommended to me, though, so I thought this might motivate me to get started on it!

So...a fabulous mailbox week for me! Can't wait to dig into some of these books :)


  1. Happy birthday! Looks like you got some great books :) And I'm really jealous of that shiny copy of Divergent you've got there.
    Happy reading :)

  2. Happy birthday Danya, I hope you had a great day! You certainly got some fabulous books. Oh yes, you should read the first in the Ingo series when you can. I really want to re-read them at some point. I'm looking forward to seeing what you think of Waterfall and Between Shades of Grey, I've heard nothing but good things about them in reviews. Enjoy :)

  3. Happy Birthday!

    I can't wait to read 'Divergent' ... everyone says it's amazing!

    I actually just read 'When You Reach Me' -- I bought it for part of my little cousin's birthday present, but I had to read it first, haha. It was definitely really good.

  4. Happy Belated Birthday!

    I can't wait to read your review on "Divergent". I've heard it's fabulous. I know the first 100 pgs are available online but I can't put myself through the torture or not knowing what happens next.

    Happy Reading!

  5. Awesome birthday haul! Have fun reading and can't wait to read your review of Divergent :)

  6. Happy Birthday, Danya! I've got Waterfall and Griffin Rising in my TBR pile so I'm looking forward to your thoughts on Between Shades of Gray and Divergent.

  7. Happy birthday! It looks like you got some excellent books this week.

  8. happy bday! and i love this haul <3

    I have ordered 'Waterfall' as well :) can't wait to see what you think of it :D

  9. Happy (late) birthday!! You got fabulous books. The Penderwicks and Waterfall are both so, so good. I hope you enjoy them all!

  10. Oh my gosh... happy belated birthday Danya!!!!!!

    I hope you enjoy the new books you received this week!! I'm really looking forward to Divergent so I can't wait to see how much you love it!!

    And I'm glad to see that the Once Every Never chapter sampler arrived safe and sound. :)

  11. Thanks very much to everyone for the birthday wishes!! :)
