In My Mailbox (10)

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi @ The Story Siren.

Wow... It's been about a month since my last IMM post, and I've missed sharing my book acquisitions with everyone. So without further delay, here are my goodies! :D

You might remember late last year, the awesome people over at The Broke and the Bookish blog did a Secret Santa swap. This is what I got:
The Maze Runner by James Dashner
A whole buncha bookmarks  - some signed! Squee!

Here's what I received from a Secret Santa swap we did in one of my Goodreads Groups. I'm excited for both of these books:
Handling The Undead by John Ajvide Lindqvist
Halfway To The Grave by Jeaniene Frost

Crusade (Crusade #1) by Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguie (Received ARC from Star Book Tours)

I actually received this one a while ago from my boss, but I plan on reading it soon and figured that I'd mention it. I hope it's awesome. :)
Little Bee by Chris Cleave.

I'm talking about stuff like this:

But it's worth it... Silly cats! :P

OK, let's get back to business!

Alrighty, that's what I got in my mailbox (since last time)... what did you get in yours? :)


  1. I love my Nook too! I LOVE the free options that they have and I love the anthologies that they offer in the device shop for like $.99. Glad you're enjoying it!

  2. How does Eddings and Martin compare to Jordan and Goodkind?
