Cinder (Lunar Chronicles, #1)   Tempest (Tempest #1)   The Catastrophic History of You & Me

For Review:
Cinder by Marissa Meyer
Tempest by Julie Cross

Won from LibraryThing:
The Catastrophic History of You and Me by Jess Rothenberg

I’m pretty excited for Cinder and Tempest!! 
Thanks to Macmillan, St. Martin’s, and LibraryThing!

I also
 registered for ALA this week! I am sooo stoked to go. 

Who else is planning on going??

So… what was in your mailbox this week?

    Nice books, Hafsah! I got Tempest and Catastrophic History this week as well. I requested both Tempest and Cinder from Macmillan on NetGalley. I got approved for Tempest but they haven't gotten to my Cinder request yet. Is that weird? Anyway, I'm looking forward to seeing what you think of these. :)

    I wish The Catastrophic History of You and Me was the name of a soap opera. That would make me laugh. A lot.

    I WISH I was going to ALA…. Have fun! I guess I'll have to have a twitter party by myself this time around (and to think we bonded over the absence of BEA). Haha, really, have fun! (And if you want to pick me up something, I wouldn't object). Enjoy your books :)
