In My Mailbox (105)

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

This week was a very ecclectic mix in regards to how they arrived. I was completely confused the other day to find two identical envelopes from St. Martin's Press in the mailbox. The only difference between the two was a different font used for the address. This difference was only noticed because both envelopes had an ARC of Tempest. I had won a Goodreads giveaway recently, and it looks like a whoopsie. I wonder if any (or all 200) winners received two copies. Anyway, it works out pretty well because I'm going to give one copy to my brother's girlfriend for Christmas since she reads a lot of YA also. I would love to run a giveaway, but I just can't afford it right now. I was also very excited to win a signed copy of Hereafter, especially since the other half of the giveaway includes an ARC of Arise once the author receives them. Last Sunday was mine and Christen's fifth anniversary, so of course we got each other books (and I also got her a mug she'd been eyeing at Starbucks). I think that's enough rambling for now. And just a warning, my birthday is on Wednesday, so the next IMM is probably gonna be ginormous.
