In My Mailbox #95: New Books This Week

In My Mailbox idea from Kristi @ The Story Siren, and all links take you to Amazon. Click images for a bigger picture!

I had a great week this week! I received some cool books (including some fab surprises!), and reached 1000 followers. That was kind of my number blogging goal, so it's all very exciting. :) I'll be posting a giveaway to celebrate soon!

Now on to the books...

Bought:

Gift:

I couldn't meet Maggie Stiefvater last month, so the lovely people at Scholastic UK sent me signed copies of Shiver and Linger, along with a signed Lament sampler. They were a complete surprise, but let's just say I was pretty excited when I opened the parcel. Thanks, Scholastic!


Happy reading all!
