IMM #5: 10.09.11

In My Mailbox 9.18.11

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!

  1. Great haul :)

    Here's mine:

  2. Looks like it's a great week for you!

    I cannot wait for The Pledge! I also can't wait to start reading reviews for it; it looks like it's going to be great!

  3. Jac: I know, I can't wait, either!! Are you with S&S GG? I think it's so funny that the newsletter came the day I ordered my copy. I can't wait to dive in. I think I'll wait to read reviews until after I've read it, though!

  4. That calendar is beautiful. Love the artwork. Come visit me as I also got a lot of books this week, mostly bought. Got the Pledge a few weeks ago and also got some e-galleys, plus I got something I wasn't expecting.

  5. You have introduced me to a couple of titles and I have spied some that I can't wait to read. The Pledge is among many that I am anxious to read.

  6. Macmillan is so awesome! I still can't believe that Cinder's really out now. We must chat about it soon! I keep meaning to ask how you know her--I feel like I've heard your name before.

    Have a wonderful reading week!

  7. When The Red Sea is Rising! I'm so jealous of everyone getting this!! ahhhh! AND you have Bitterblue?! WHAAAAT. Lucky!!

    I hope you enjoy all your books! :)

  8. I can't wait to get my copy of Liel & Po. I just ordered it today! I also got the Pledge that sounds pretty good! Great haul this week!

  10. Great books! I'm really looking forward to When the Sea Is Rising Red. Enjoy!

    My IMM

  11. The Always War sounds really interesting! I'm looking forward to seeing what you think. Also Son of Neptune! I just finished it, and I seriously need the next book now please.

    My IMM is over here if you'd like to drop by! Happy reading!

  12. Oh my goodness I want the calendar! Where did you get it? I have seen those full sized art pieces, like 5x4 sizes and they are so amazing! I need to get this calendar this is going on my Christmas list!

  13. Oh I am so jealous of the event you are going to! I love multi author events, those are the craziest. It is nice to meet another fellow event junkie :D

    Actually when I saw your IMM 2 weeks ago? and you had gotten Sailor Moon I instantly went over to amazon and put them all on my list. I have 1 checked off my list and many more to go :) Sailor Moon rocks!!
