In My Mailbox (4)

 
 In My Mailbox is a meme created by Kristi of The Story Siren and inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie.

Okay, so my presence has been pretty sparse in the blogosphere lately, with my posts being reduced to only the occasional review here and there (believe me, all the books I've reviewed are the only ones I've read this year). School's getting insanely hectic, so I hardly have any time to do anything non-school-related. But I'm trying to keep reading and post reviews as frequently as I can, so hang in there, guys! Don't lose hope in me just yet :)

It's also been almost two months since my last IMM post, so I thought I'd do one today! I had some free time on my hands, so I took out the books I've accumulated since I last did an IMM and snapped a few pictures of them.

For review:
Instructions for a Broken Heart by Kim Culbertson
(thanks Kim and Sourcebooks Fire!)

Bought:
Startled by His Furry Shorts by Louise Rennison
The Iron King by Julie Kagawa
Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
Prom by Laurie Halse Anderson
Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton
Delirium by Lauren Oliver
Torment by Lauren Kate
Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick

Won:
Nightshade by Andrea Cremer (signed)
(won from Kate of Call Me Crazy)
Freefall by Mindi Scott
(won from Nic of Irresistible Reads)
Need by Carrie Jones
Low Red Moon by Ivy Devlin (ARC)
Where the Truth Lies by Jessica Warman (ARC- second copy)
(won from Mavie of The Bookologist)


As you guys could see, I sort of went on a binge- stress does things to people! I bought Delirium and Angelfire in one go, and during another shopping trip, I bought Crescendo, Torment, Iron King and Jellicoe Road. My wallet is not very happy, but my bookshelf sure is. And I got a pretty good deal for Startled by His Furry Shorts and Prom- I got them both for $2. Not bad at all! And I'm incredibly thankful for all the books I won, and for Instructions for a Broken Heart. So many great books, I can't wait to read them all! :D

What did you get in your mailbox this week?
