In My Mailbox

Before everyone goes off yelling at me....I did not BUY any books. (OK - I bought one - but it was pre-ordered from long ago) These were all sent to me by very generous people who are in no way helping with my problem of not being able to shrink my TBR pile. only gets bigger. But you'll get no complaints from me because look how great this IMM is!!

From the awesome Lena at Addicted to Novels:

Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins - Read it and I can't even express how happy this book made me! Hands down my favorite book of the year so far. It made my cold....cold...cynical YA heart sing with utter joy.
(Thank you thank you thank you Lena!!)

Sweetly by Jackson Pearce

Jessica Rules the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey
I didn't even know there was a sequel to Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side so this was a happy surprise!

Dear Bully: 70 Authors Tell Their Stories

From Brooke at Brooke Reports: Are you following her yet?? If not - why not?? LOL

Divergent by Veronica Roth - signed....with tattoos! LOVED this book too.

Supernaturally by Kiersten White


From Pam at Midnyte Reader - I finally got to meet Pam at BEA in NYC this year! Super nice and she sent me the only book on my BEA list that I did not get. Thanks Pam!

Fuzzy Nation by John Scalzi


I bought both of these books awhile ago so I can't be yelled at for buying more books. Kelley's was pre-ordered long ago and The Charles Dickens is part of a read a long.

David Copperfield by Charles Dickens - I'm enjoying it more than I thought I would but it's a BIIIIG

Becoming graphic novel by Kelley Armstrong - Absolutely gorgeous.

From author Robin DeJarnett - really pretty Kindle bling from her debut novel Whirlwind! Thanks Robin!


  1. LOLA! I. Cannot. Wait. If you loved it, I will likely die of joy when I read it. But it will be a good way to go.

  2. Great set of books. Have fun reading !!!
    Check out my IMM tom :)
    Happy Reading!!!

  3. Awesome haul!
    I was giggling and saying "David Copperfield isn't that big, I'm used to books that side" then proceeded to dig around in my shelves, knowing exactly where it was, but with books shoved in front.. (I need a book buying ban too :x) and went for, "Okay, it's only... 750 .. pages.. of Dickens.. yeah okay it's quite big." It made me want to read it though - I should not be allowed to eye up books in the middle of reading something else!

  4. Always happy to help with your book addiction.

  5. why would someone yell at you??! There's no yelling in book blogging!! :)) great books!

  6. We wouldn't yell at you. We're book lovers and enablers, and we understand. :)

    Cool Kindle Bling from Robin.

    DC is freaking HUGE! I've been reading it off and on for years. LOL

  7. Ooooh Lola! :D I'm jealous! And your copy of Becoming came in! Hopefully mine will come in soon then too! :D
