In My Mailbox (40) — First Picture Edition

In My Mailbox is a meme created by The Story Siren and inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie! It features a list of what books you have received over the previous week, either for review, from the library, or from the bookstore.


For Review:
Shattered Dreams by Ellie James (from LibraryThing’s ER program)
Crossed by Ally Condie
A Temptation of Angels by Michelle Zink (a bound manuscript!!!)

After Obsession by Carrie Jones and Steven E Wedel (from my library)
Rival by Sara Bennett Wealer (from Kelsey The Book Scout)

Thanks to Penguin, LibraryThing, The Book Scout, and my library!
And yes, this IMM is my first one posting an actual picture *grins*
So… what was in your mailbox this week?

    Awesome mailbox! Hear good things about Rival as well! Saw the author once too earlier this year, but haven't read the book. I'm paranormal reader only kind of gal! And since a lot of people liked Matched, I'm sure they're envious of Crossed. I still haven't decided to read the first one!

    Oh well, Happy Reading!

    My IMM will go up tomorrow, be sure to stop by!

    Have a GREAT weekend!
