In My Mailbox (3)

Sunday, September 16, 2012 2:25 PM
In My Mailbox is a meme hosted over at The Story Siren where you showcase all of the books and goodies you received over the last week!

Money makes me a dangerous woman. I have to fight the urge to spend. And not on shoes or purses or clothes. I have the rare occasion where I want a Fossil purse or a summer dress.  My real weakness is literature. I have to resist the temptation to buy stacks of books. So my first paycheck created a monster.  See for yourself. 

Plus, I used to be good at photography but I'm mediocre at best now. That flash is killing me. 

Purchased (from Amazon and Barnes and Noble):
Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan 
Shadowfell by Juliet Marillier
Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire
The Near Witch by Victoria Schwab

Won (from Ensconced in YA):
Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake 

Everneath by Brodi Ashton

I finally won a book from a giveaway! I won a signed copy of Girl of Nightmares from Ensconced in YA, and I'd like to thank Christina for hosting the giveaway and Kendare Blake for signing and sending the book (oh, and for writing it of course)! I love Anna Dressed in Blood and look forward to reading this sequel! Here's what Blake wrote since it might be hard to see: 

For Courtney!

Hope you like a little blood. or a lot...
Happy nightmares!

Don't worry, Blake. I don't mind blood, and I love creepy books!

Last but not least, I just purchased Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce from my local bookstore. The cashier informed me that Jackson is actually female. Wow, I love that her name is Jackson, and I'm excited to read this!

That's my IMM. What did you guys get this week?

Happy reading,
