In My Mailbox is a bunch of weekly fun hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren. :)
Hello again, people. I have returned from my trip relatively unscathed (apart from having the trunk of my car checked both times I crossed the border because, apparently, me traveling on my own for the weekend was suspicious) and brought back a load of books. Some I've already read and didn't have copies of, some I waited to buy because I knew they would be cheaper (technically cheaper; hardcover books can cost about 2 to 5 dollars more in Canada and the exchange rate is about even these days).
At the moment, I'm not sure if there will be a new IMM post next week. I might have to cut back on the book-buying after last weekend. Plus, I'll be in Vancouver all this week working a fun volunteer job. The VPL is hosting their annual summer Writing & Book Camp for kids 11 to 13 & 14+. Kids participate in workshops, talk about books, write a 1-page story that gets published in a big anthology at the end, and meet other kids who love reading and writing as much as they do. :)

From the S&S Galley Grab:
The Pledge by Kimberly Derting (apparently, the link was making its rounds on Twitter on Friday & I missed it, but thanks to Ashley at Book Labyrinth for sending me the link)
I also bought A Need So Beautiful by Suzanne Young, but it's for a giveaway winner. I hope she doesn't mind that I read it since I hadn't read it yet, I promise I was careful with it.
