Me on In My Mailbox (24)

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

I was in a weird sad and grouchy 'I hate everyone who's going to BEA because I'm not and it's possible I might've if I hadn't broken my ankle but I did so all my money goes to that right now and it's a good thing I have some insurance cause I have to pay for is my air cast boot thing and physio and renting crutches but not for any of the surgery/hospital stuff' phase during the week. Thankfully someone wonderful and lovely (Emma over at Booking Through 365) has offered to grab me an ARC or two when she goes. I was talking to someone on Twitter the other day about how much we'd totally freak out if there were Lola and the Boy Next Door ARCs. I'd honestly faint if I got an ARC of Lola. Like totally spaz and lose my mind. (No pressure, Emma. ;) I promise.)

And if you are also going to BEA this week and you don't mind grabbing an extra ARC or two for me, I'll pay for shipping and a box. Seriously. Shipping is on me.

Found in the S&S Galley Grab newsletter:
Sometimes It Happens by Lauren Barnholdt
Love Story by Jennifer Echols
Wildefire by Karsten Knight

Borrowed from the library:
Geektastic: Stories from the Nerd Herd by Holly Black and Cecil Castellucci (eds.) (e-book)

And it's got all the comics in it, too. :D I love Bryan Lee O'Malley & Hope Larson's work.


  1. Those were the three ARCs I got from the S&S Galley Grab too! :) They seem to be popular choices, popping up in lots of mailboxes :D And Geektastic sounds good, very funny! :D Happy reading!

  2. The S&S galley grabs were really good this month I got a few too. Happy reading!

  3. I can't get to BEA either - maybe next year! :'(

  4. Sometimes I feel like i never know quite what to download from Galley Grab until I see the highlighted and discussed elsewhere, so thank you for pointing some others out to me!

    And I don't feel ready for BEA this year, but I'm definitely going next year as long as it doesn't coincide with finals!
