Me on In My Mailbox (41)

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

The Smart Chicks stop was awesome. :) And in a few days I get to meet Tahereh Mafi (and Caitlin meets her again, I'm so jealous of her ComicCon-ing). :D The border crossing and the drive will be all worth it once we get down there. Of course, this means I have to read Shatter Me for the third time. What a struggle. ;) I found out this past week from Tahereh that Canada's getting the paperback 'international edition' of Shatter Me (like with Fateful) and so I'm torn. I've pre-ordered the hardcover, but I've been debating whether or not to cancel it and get the paperback instead. What would you do, wonderful readers??

Plus the adorable little business cards I got from Moo.com arrived. They're awesome and I'm glad they arrived before the lunch. Now I can hand them out to other bloggers and professional-type people and be all fancy instead of an over-excited book nerd.

Also, if I met you at the Smart Chicks signing, you were so lucky because right now I sound like I've been smoking a pack a day for 20 years. *head-desk* It's possible I caught the cold my mom brought home from a weekend in Whistler, but it's also possible I somehow picked up some sore throat thing. I'm currently self-medicating with tea and lemon throat lozenges. Cross your fingers that I don't lose my voice.
Bought:
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin (my review here; such a gorgeous cover, check out Michelle's blog for an awesome contest ending Oct 4th)
Enthralled: Paranormal Diversions edited by Kelley Armstrong and Melissa Marr

Borrowed from the library (I actually got these last Sunday, but last week's post was huge so I saved them for this week):
Ashes by Ilsa J. Bick (e-book)
Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson (e-book)
A Long, Long Sleep by Anna Sheehan (e-book)
How They Met, and Other Stories by David Levithan (e-book) (already read and enjoyed)

To review: Crave, Crossed, The Pledge, The Space Between, Shattered Souls (which I got back from Caitlin who really liked it so that's promising), Audition, Fateful, and Tempest Rising. I'm thinking of reviewing A Long, Long Sleep and Ashes, I don't know. What other books do you want me to review? Remember to send in your suggestions for the Readers Choice Review Week. :)
