In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. You can learn more about it here.
It's been a while since I've done an IMM... the last one was December 4, and since then I've received a stack of books thanks to Christmas (gift cards, baby!) and also gifts from other people. So, I hope I didn't forget any books!
Before Thursday, I didn't have bookcases. I stacked my books on my desk and around my room. I did have one shelf, but I "dedicated" it to signed books. I live in Wyoming. The last time there was signing in my area, it was in Billings, Montana and it was for CJ Box. Who is a Wyoming author and writes about Wyoming. So, yeah, that's thrilling.
Anyway, I bought two bookcases with one of my gift cards. I don't have a lot of books because I usually borrow from the library, but I like owning books that I love so I hope (hope!) now that I have a place for my books (and will need to buy some more bookshelves) I will be buying more of the books I read instead of relying on my (not so stocked) library.
Now the books!
So, I actually didn't get any books for Christmas (I never do), but these are the books I bought with my Christmas gift cards.
Between by Jessica Warman (read; LOVED.)
Anna Dressed in Blood (read; LOVED. IT.)
A Want So Wicked by Suzanne Young thanks to Suzanne Young and NovelNovice.
So, uh, yeah. I pretty much flipped out when I saw the package from Suzanne Young on my porch Tuesday night. I don't think "flipping out" covers what I did. I was shaky and SO, SO EXCITED. Because guys? AWSW doesn't come out until June. (The ARC says July.) And I'm one of the first people to have read it. And I read A Need So Beautiful which is one of my favorite books and this series is breathtaking.
So, yeah, that's what I found in my mailbox. What about you?
