Me on In My Mailbox (50)

In My Mailbox is a bunch of weekly fun hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren. :)

I'm not sure when I'll next have an IMM post after this week. It's 2 weeks to Christmas, it's 2 weeks and a day to my birthday, I'm not buying books for myself right now (it would be tacky). If I do get books and post another IMM before Christmas, the books will be review books or library e-books or early presents. :)

Go here if you're interested in participating in a list of bloggers' picks of 2011's underrated YA books. It'll be posted on the 29th. :)

I saw on Friday that John & Hank Green have added a Vancouver stop to their tour in January. *mini-flail* So exciting. But I'm torn. The ticket's about 20 bucks and it doesn't include the book (which I sort of understand why). Now, you guys know I love it when authors come up here for book events, but $20 bucks, plus the book, plus taking the trip out to UBC to the theatre, plus the crowd, plus we do get snow here sometimes in the winter, plus it starts at 6:30pm. I need to think about it.

I hope everyone will come back every day this week because a new review is going up every day this week. :D Well, every weekday. Some are new books, some are old books, most are books I own and one I got from the library. Last time, not this time.

Dear Bully: Seventy Authors Tell Their Stories edited by Megan Kelley Hall and Carrie Jones (ARC) (from Dayna at A Tapestry of Words)

Borrowed from the library:
Juliet Immortal by Stacey Jay (e-book) (I borrowed this a little while ago, sent it back because I wasn't in an e-book mood, and have re-borrowed it because I don't really want to take out books then deal with returning them around the 25th. E-books will be easier to deal with.)
L.A. Candy by Lauren Conrad (e-book) (The only reason I'm reading this is because the tagline of Immortal City was "L.A. Candy meets the mystery and romance of Fallen." Now, Fallen I liked, the next two books not as much, but Fallen I liked. Since I'm a little wary of Immortal City and the L.A. popularity and celebrity aspect, I figured I'd read this. There probably won't be a review, unless I feel the need to rant.)

To review: Everything You Need to Survive the Apocalypse, A Million Suns, Incarnate, Born Wicked, A Touch Morbid, The Fine Art of Truth or Dare, Immortal City, Gone, Gone, Gone and Never Enough. :)


  1. Very nice haul you got. I got Dear Bully a few weeks ago. Hope you enjoy your new books.

  5. A Million Suns - jealous! I want to check out Juliet Immortal - it looks really good and I totally agree with you about getting books back to the library near the 25th - total hassle. E-books will be much easier!
    Happy Reading!
