IMM: In My Mailbox (29)

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi @ The Story Siren

I had an awesome week worth of books! I went to the next town over where Borders is closing and purchased a bunch of books. My husband spoils me so much! He knew I was wanting to go so he surprised me with a surprise day of book shopping. I also preordered Lover Unleashed a week before it was released and was fuming that it didn't arrive until today! Over a week of being steamed at Amazon for the slowest shipping ever and it finally arrived!! Unacceptable Amazon!

Here is what showed up in my mailbox this week!

Blood Magic by Tessa Gratton (ARC) 
Divergent by Veronica Roth (ARC)
Shimmer by Alyson Noel
Lovely Shoes by Susan Shreve (ARC)
Fire World by Chris d'Lacey (ARC)
 Bastian by Elizabeth Amber (ARC Manuscript)
plus signed cover flat and bookmarks!

Thanks to:
Elizabeth Amber
Macmillan/Square Fish
Amazon Vine

 I told you my husband spoiled me! LOL
I actually had two more books that I purchased, but I forgot to put them in the photo.
Rock Hard by Olivia Cunning (OMG! Review to come!)
Lover Unleashed by J.R. Ward (FINALLY!)
The Darkest Secret by Gena Showalter (Love those Lords!) 
Vampire Mine by Kerrelyn Sparks 
In The Company of Vampires by Katie MacAlister
Taken By Midnight by Lara Adrian
The Vampires Promise by Caroline B. Cooney
The Silver Kiss by Annette Curtis Klause
Wolf Tales 11 by Kate Douglas
The Perfect Play by Jaci Burton 
Accidentally Catty by Dakota Cassidy
Deeper by Megan Hart
Immortal Danger by Cynthia Eden
Spells by Aprilynne Pike
Eternal Flame by Cynthia Eden

Back Stage Pass by Olivia Cunning 
(it looked lonely so I HAD to buy it and support the awesome and talented author!)
Delirium by Lauren Oliver
I was pleasantly surprised when author Olivia Cunning told me that a snippet of my review for Back Stage Pass was included in the beginning of Rock Hard!  I was listed with other awesome reviewers and this just goes to show how addicted to the series I am!!!  I own 2 finished copies of Back Stage Pass, 1 ARC of Back Stage Pass, 1 ARC of Rock Hard and now 1 finished copy of Rock Hard!  Yes, I am addicted to The Sinners and will one day become Trey's girl!!

What did everyone else get?

That was so sweet of your husband!

Wow, you got lots of books! I am glad the the Borders here isn't going out of business, but I'm sad I'm missing out on such good deals.

Even though my Borders isn't going out of business, I was still able to get Spells and Hush, Hush for $4 each, so I guess I can't complain too much. LOL. Plus, I have Powells Bookstore here, and they rock.

That must be so EXCITING to have your review quoted in a book! Yay! Congrats! I'll have to check that one out.

Great mailbox this week!

Loving this haul! Amy were the books on sale at borders? I have a border near me thats closing, but I wasn't sure if the Romances were on sale so I didn't go and check it out yet.

Happy Reading!
