IMM #11: 11.20.11

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!


Check back on Friday! I'm participating in Book Savvy Babe's Black Friday Book Bonanza Hop and will be giving away a title that also ties in with Ashley from Basically Amazing's Just Contemporary month! (Annnnnnnd....hint, hint! If you actually watch the video, there will be a spoiler regarding what it shall be!!)

(I will tell you that I spend the first couple of minutes moaning about the new Lifetime movie JODI PICOULT'S SALEM FALLS. I don't know why I let myself watch it.... Or why I filmed IMM while still annoyed!!! Sorry about that!)

Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd I went to a book signing and had books signed by Tamora Pierce, John Connolly, Rae Carson, and Leanna Renee Hieber. Check out my post about the festivities!

  1. Lot's of books this week =) I hope you enjoy everything you got! Come check out my IMM!

  2. Everytime I look at Darker Still it reminds me of Taylor Swift. I mean, the girl is really skinny and pretty. Blonde, pretty big fancy dress. It's all there!

  3. Great haul! Smoke and Bone is fantastic!

  4. I need to get The Pledge too! Really enjoyed it. And I'm reading Darker Still now and am already loving it! Hope you enjoy!

    My IMM!

  5. HOw fun!! I love the idea of bundling ebooks w/their hardback counterpart. Like you, I'm a huge fan of the aesthetic and tangibility of the real thing. :)

    And I've read THE STRANGELY BEAUTIFUL TALE OF MISS PERCY PARKER. Such a beautifully written book! Can't wait to get a peak at her DARKER STILL series. :) Thanks for the inside track on all of these great books!

  6. These books look great. I'm reading The Mers at the moment.

    Thanks for stopping by :-)

  7. Wow , so many awesome books!! I can't wait to get my hands on Darker Still and The Girl of Fire and Thorns, they both sound so good. And while I've read mixed reviews on The Pledge, I was a fan of Kimberly's TBF, so I'm curious to see how I'll like this!

    So I'm totally coming to camp out in your bookshelf in a few days, clear some space for me, okay? :D


  8. You got some awesome books this week. I love signings, they are so awesome.
