IMM: 11.27.11

IN MY MAILBOX: 11.06.11

In My Mailbox was created by Kristi at The Story Siren because:

"I get books to read and then ultimately share my thoughts about with my readers. As much as I want to, I can’t possibly read every book I receive. Yet, I still wanted a way to feature those books on the blog, even though it might not be in the form of a review. Problem solved! Every week I'd share the books I received that week... ones I'd bought, or gotten at the library, and ones that I'd receive to review on the blog. That way I could mention titles that might not otherwise get some face-time on The Story Siren..."

I find the same thing happening at A Backwards Story. I'm so backed up on reviews atm... That's why I like these videos!


I'm participating in Book Savvy Babe's Black Friday Book Bonanza Hop and am giving away a copy of RHYMES WITH CUPID by Anna Humphrey for Ashley from Basically Amazing's Just Contemporary month!

  1. Hello :) Glad to see you had such a fantastic week. I loved Sisters Red, too. The things you got sent for that look really cute. I'm totally dying to read Sweetly, too. :) And you are right, Extraordinary (I think that was the title?) does look like Enchanted and the resemblance is definitely uncanny. I hope the book is great.

    Your new Poison tote looks really cool. I haven't started those books yet. You'll need to let me know if I should consider it. :) (I love and hate starting new series... My TBR is already too big!)

    Anyway, I hope that you had a great thanksgiving. Now we enter the homestretch before Christmas. Don't let it catch you unaware! :) :p I hope that you have a great week. :)
