I read pretty much any chance I get. I mostly read YA books but some adult ones as well. To me all books are precious gems and are meant to be treasured.

In My Mailbox (3)



In my Mailbox is a weekly post, hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren , about what new books we got this week.


Library:



Captivate by Carrie Jones:

Can't wait to read this book! I have a few that are in front of this one so it will be a little while, but still can't wait. Its the second in the Need series by Carrie Jones. I actually listened, instead of read, the first one, but loved it. It was my first audio book. Would love to listen to the whole series but they didn't have them at my library. Really like this series so far. Again can't wait to read!!





Bought:


Fins are Forever by Tera Lynn Childs:

I completely loved Forgive my Fins and luckily read and finished it before the sequel came out. Loved it so much that I pre-ordered it from B & N and it arrived Friday!!! I still need to buy my own copy of Forgive my Fins, and plan on it soon. I can't wait to read this one. Love the cover art on both, and the lettering. Super excited for this one!!!




The Dark Hills Divide by Patrick Carman:

Bought this one from my Library for 50 cents!!! ( I know right) Its the first in the Land of Elyon Series. It is a small hardcover and it just looked completely adorable and intriguing so I decided to buy it. Can't wait to see what its all about.

Other:
OMG!!! Thanks so much to Victoria Schwab. I went to the mailbox on Monday, and found these waiting for me. Lets just say it made me smile, jump up and down, and almost faint.
I can't thank her enough, and just want to let her know this is my very first stuff signed by an author. Can't wait to read her book The Near Witch!!!!    Release Date: Aug. 2, 2011

  5. "Captivate" looks beautiful. I've been meaning to read "Need" for a while. Must get around to it! (I'm going to listen to it too, as I'm an Audible addict).

    Thanks for commenting on My IMM earlier. You rock!
