In My Mailbox (104)

Thanks to Kristi at The Story Siren for hosting In My Mailbox every week.

A few weeks ago I finally got the courage to make my first review request, and it worked out so awesome because I got a copy of Trance yesterday! My happy dance freaked out my mom a little, and the cats a lot. We also got funny looks at the library after walking up to check out with over 10 books. It was like they've never seen anyone who wants to read so much. Who knew. I guess everyone around here rents DVDs... We wouldn't have grabbed so many except Christen doesn't like to read my mass markets because I'm "too OCD" about my books (ie, she's afraid she'll crease the spines), so the books with ** next to them are ones that I already owned but we rented for Christen.

  1. Great haul! I have to ask, because I think I missed something somewhere, who the heck is Christen? It totally freaks me out every time you mention her on your blog because that's my name...with my spelling. And as you probably know, that is NOT a common spelling!

    My IMM: Goldilox and the Three Weres IMM

    Goldilox (aka Christen) :)

  2. Oh so many books. I see a lot of choices. Which to read first. Come visit me over At Livre De Amour-Books of Love Blog.

  3. Goldilox, Christen is my girlfriend. We've been together for five years and share a live for paranormal books. She reviews the occasional book so I started including her books in IMM posts (plus I read/review some of her books too).

  4. Great set! Cool that you got Switched. I liked it. I really want to read Gail Carriger's books.

  11. I still haven't read Heartless! I can't believe I keep forgetting about this book. Maybe the next time I let myself buy something, I'll get that one. (I'm on a bit of a ban at the moment, to try and save money, so the library is getting a lot of use.)

  16. Giselle, I believe the copy of Switched by Amanda Hocking I picked up at the library is the version that she self-published. I know she recently got a fantastic book deal with one of the big 6 publishers (St. Martin's, I think), and it looks like they're be re-releasing her Trylle series with new covers.

    Emma, I did a happy dance when I found Drink, Slay, Love at the library. I had the best timing. Someone must have just returned it because when I looked at the catalogue the night before, all copies were checked out. And since it's a neighboring county and not the one I live in, I cannot put anything on hold with my current card. So it was awesome.

  17. Ohhh, I want Drink, Slay, Love! Heard it was really good! Still have to read the Soulless series too! :D
    My IMM...
