IMMB 11

In My Mailbox was started over at The Story Siren. It is a way to encourage blogger interaction and put new books on the radar.

This has been my book week- I go from only winning one contest in a year to this-- keep it coming! I won a signed copy of Light of Asteria from Novelthoughts, a copy of Radiance from Roots in Myth, a $40 CSN from Brave New Writer and a team cullen t-shirt ( picture next week-- I left my other camera somewhere) from I'd So Rather Be Reading. 

And I got my first review request for Kersten Hamilton and you can see my review of Tyger Tyger here. I also got my second for Spy Glass by Maria Synder, and there will be a review up sometime this week.

Be sure to enter my 50 follower contest. There will now be two winners, and the prize choices are a $5 amazon card, a signed copy of Perfect Chemistry, Firespell, or Dead Until Dark.

And NOW-- finally-- what was actually in my mailbox (I haven't recieved most of my books above so you will see them again.

From the library- picture with the help of my lovely daughter, Katie



Also from the library- I went a little crazy
The Body Finder
The Second Short Life of Bree Tanner
Chasing Brooklyn
For Keeps
























First two from Edward McKay Used books, second from Target, and third from amazon
When it happens
Lost for Words
Forbidden Game
Breaking Free (for my bible study)

So what did YOU get and what do you think of my books?
