Me on In My Mailbox (9)

IMM is hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren every week. :)

Hello, blog people. :) It was a quiet week over here. Some snow in the middle, but it was okay. Not totally book-filled, but I did get some reading done. Reviews were posted (Dash & Lily's Book of Dares and The Replacement) and my first ever author guest post went up where 2010 debut author Mindi Scott talked about writing in a guy frame of mind when you're a girl.

And here are the books I got this week.

Across the Universe by Beth Revis
The Hollow by Jessica Verday (ebook version for reading on my Kobo)

Received from the Simon & Schuster Galley Grab (for review??):
Invincible Summer by Hannah Moskowitz (eGalley)

The S&S Galley Grab is in the beta stage so there isn't a whole lot explained when you sign up. I had to do a little Twitter searching before I learned that once you sign up you get the one galley then I'm guessing at the beginning of every month a newsletter comes with a few galleys for you to download (I saw the January newsletter had Wither and Red Glove available). I'm mostly happy that they don't seem to care if you live in the US or in Canada or the UK or wherever. Plus you get access to it until the release date.

I think I'm going to e-mail them on Monday, ask a question or two. My impression was that you're supposed to review it then send S&S your review, but they don't really talk about this. Hmmm.

Maybe this will also get me to start requesting on NetGalley.

Side Note: Jess (who is @JessRing84 on Twitter and really cool and a film/screenwriting student) and I have been looking for someone who might've grabbed an extra ARC of Wolfsbane at the ALA Midwinter meeting, or just got an extra one in general, or is okay with lending it to us for a little while. Jess lives in the US & I'm in Canada, so shipping might not totally hurt. If you don't have one or have promised it to someone else, it's no problem. We're just wondering. :)
