IMM #3

In My Mailbox was originally started by The Story Siren and it's where anyone can participate and let everyone know what they got in books, and other book related things, throughout a given time.  Anyone with a blog can join in, and you can post once a week, once a month, or whenever you choose to.

Hey everyone!!

  2. Wooo! Yay for your awesome book haul! Yes, Thuy^ and I are super-jealous of everyone at P&P. We did get to meet the Breathless gals the night before, as well as Marissa Meyer. But I missed Gail Carriger and I am SO bummed! I hope she gets to travel down here again when her YA debuts. *crosses fingers*

  4. WOW! What a great mailbox this week :-) I just finished Born Wicked (and loved it!) and am currently reading Cinder, which I am also enjoying so far.

    I hope you enjoy all your reads! May your wallet recover quickly, haha! Thank for stopping by BlookGirl earlier! :-)
