In My Mailbox {13}

In My Mailbox is a meme hosted by The Story Siren, which allows bloggers to share what books they’ve received in the past week. They can be from stores, contests, tours, publishers, libraries, borrowed books from friends, and the list goes
on! It's just a way of showing off the books you received in the past week and making sure they're featured on the blog.

This week I received:







  • Signed old ARC of Anna & the French Kiss (won in giveaway from Authors are Rockstars)
  • The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater (from Scholastic Canada)
  • ARC of Pure by Julianna Baggott (from Katherine @ The Lady Critic's Library! Thank you <3)
  • Rampant by Diana Peterfreund (purchased)
  • A whole bunch of Marianne de Pierres swag for an Angel Arias giveaway on Facebook from Marianne herself! I don't have it pictured here, but there was also a signed bookplate which I've already put in my copy of Burn Bright :)
I was SO excited about my books and swag this week! I really love Marianne de Pierres' Night Creatures series, so I was thrilled to get some signed swag from her :) I'll be giving some of the extra swag away in a giveaway later this year, hopefully!

I picked up Rampant when I went shopping with my papa and sister today, and we stopped in a discount book market. There were SO many cool finds there, but I'd already read most of the ones I was interested in- except for this one! I picked it up for $5 and was a little sad to see a gorgeous hardcover of Nightshade for only $7 when I spent nearly double that!

Katherine sent me Pure after she saw it on my  WoW, and I was already sending her an ARC of A Million Suns, so I guess you could say we did a little trade (which I'm so excited for squeeee!) and imagine my surprise when I opened up a lovely box from Scholastic Canada to find that gorgeous finished copy!

Did you get anything really exciting this week? Please leave a link so I can go visit yours and tell me what you think of the books I got this week! :)

Congrats on your signed copy of ANNA! I recently read LOLA finally, yay! I want to read THE SCORPIO RACES and have a copy of RAMPANT that I can't wait to get to! Love all the swag! I'm the same way: I get so depressed when I get a good deal and paid more for everything I would have bought!
