In My Mailbox (45)

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

For review:

Save the Pearls Part One: Revealing Eden by Victoria Foyt — thanks to Sand Dollar Press!

Picture the Dead by Adele Griffin, illustrations by Lisa Brown (thanks Sourcebooks!)

Getting Somewhere by Beth Neff (from the author — thanks, Beth!) She also included a hardcover copy for me to give away, so be on the lookout for a giveaway of that!

And a couple e-books:

Thanks to Callie Kingston and Meredith Zeitlin's PR rep for these!


The Fault in Our Stars by John Green — This was a pre-order of mine, and I was dismayed to see that it came unsigned! All pre-orders were supposed to be signed, but I think Amazon.ca screwed up. Did anyone else have the same problem? Anyway, the author has promised to fix it with a signed bookplate if you e-mail him with your information, so I've done that. *crosses fingers*

Girls in Pants: The Third Summer of the Sisterhood by Ann Brashares — got this as a library discard! I have the first two, so I thought it would be nice to continue the collection.


An awesome swag package for the book Sirenz by Charlotte Bennardo and Natalie Zaman! It came in this cute gauzy bag, and inside was...

...assorted swag, including a couple bookmarks, a sticker, and a button! Charlotte enclosed a nice card, too :) Thanks very much, Charlotte!

And a few books out from the library:

How to Say Goodbye in Robot by Natalie Standiford
In the Shadow of the Lamp by Susanne Dunlap
Frostbite by Richelle Mead
The Gathering by Kelley Armstrong


  1. oooh is that the new paperback of Picture the Dead? I like that cover a lot! I think it goes with the book much better. I hope you enjoy it!

    I'm curious to see what you think of In the Shadow of the Lamp. I've been meaning to read one of her books.

  2. I really hope you like The Fault In Our Stars. I LOVED it. So amazing. Great haul this week, I hope you have fun reading them! [:

  3. Nice books! I really wanna read TFIOS so badly! It sucks you didn't get it signed though. Happy reading :)

    Steph: Short & Sweet

  4. The cover for Picture the Dead is gorgeous! And sorry about not getting a signed TFiOS. At least John Green's trying to make it up to people! He must have carpal tunnel by now.

  5. Picture the Dead was a really neat book, hope you enjoy it. And that IS weird about the unsigned copy of TFiOS, hope you get that squared away soon! You are going to LOVE it, signed or not. Can't wait to hear your thoughts!:)
