In My Mailbox (1)


In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren

I’ve been meaning to start this for about two weeks now, but if you’ve been following my blog, you know I’ve been having a tough time lately.  It’s not getting much easier.  My family is now in the planning for another funeral.  This is the only one I have been directly involved in planning, but this is the fourth funeral I will have attended in two weeks.  At least this time I won’t be going out of state.

Now that the sad stuff is out of the way, lets get on to the happy! Since this is my first In My Mailbox, I’m going to show you what books I’ve gotten the past two weeks with my own money/gift cards and most of the prizes I’ve received from contests around the web in the last month!

  • Hush,Hush by Becca Fiztpatrick
  • Red-headed Stepchild by Jaye Wells
  • Tempest Rising by Nicole Peeler
  • Crimson City by Liz Maverick
  • Sunshine by Robin McKinley

From Borders:

  • A Tale of Two Demon Slayers by Angie Fox
  • Demon Inside by Stacia Kane  (Too bad I meant to get Personal Demons, so that’ll come next week, hopefully!)

I don't know if you entered the Holey Donuts giveaway or not, but if you could check out this post and do so for my blog, it would mean a TON for my family and you can enter for the book afterwards too if you wish (White Cat by Holly Black ARC)!:
