In My Mailbox (6)


In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren & This Week in Books by Pop Culture Junkie


Ok, so I might have gone a tad overboard this week… But really is it possible to own too many books? I didn’t think so. And sorry if the picture’s a little fuzzy. It’s from my phone, which isn’t very good.

I had another wonderful week with receiving things I’ve won. Thanks again to everyone who sent them! I’m a very happy woman this week!

Won By Me:

From Gracen Miller @ Wicked Thorn and Roses

  • $10 B&N Gift Card
  • Signed card

From Bitten By Books

  • Pretty Dead by Francesca Lia Block

From Un:Bound Blogzine

  • Road Trip of the Living Dead by Mark Henry (signed and snarked)
  • Battle of the Network Zombies by Mark Henry (signed and snarked)

From Book Lovers Inc.

  • Ashes of the Red Heifer by Shannon Baker

Bought By Me:

From the Book Rack (a local used bookstore)

  • Dead Girls Are Easy by Terry Garey
  • A Match Made in Hell by Terry Garey

  • Death’s Daughter by Amber Benson
  • Through a Crimson Veil by Patti O’Shea
  • A Darker Crimson by Carolyn Jewel
  • The Touch of Twilight by Vicki Pettersson
  • The Taste of Night by Vicki Pettersson
  • The bad thing is I had to stop myself at this point, because there were about 30 other books from my wishlist there that day!

Sent to Me:

From E.J. Stevens

  • Swag! Gorgeous bookmarks for her new book Shadows of Myth & Legend (Don’t worry, they’re not for me.)


A very belated Christmas present from my mom

  • Break of Dawn by Chris Marie Green

From my mom’s friend, just b/c she’s so nice.

  • A frog candle holder w/ a tea light. Isn’t he cute?!


I think that’s everything. If I forgot something, I’m so very sorry. Just let me know. :)

Sarah said...

You had a fab week this week - congrats on your contest wins :o) I really wish we had a good used book store near us but it's probably a good thing we don't - my TBR pile is already way out of control LOL

Tori [Book Faery] said...

Oh wow you got so much! I hope you enjoy everythingg :) And congrats on all the stuff you won from contests

Chrissie said...

Wow, great haul this week! Hope you enjoy your books :)

Unknown said...

That is a brilliant stash this week! the taste of Night is a really good UF/Horror book - but I haven't been so keen on the later books. Hope you enjoy!

Amanda Leigh said...

@Stephanie- Thanks!

@Sarah- Thank you! LOL You should have seen me at the store. I was sitting on the floor surrounded by piles of books and staring at a shelf with my tbr list in my hand. My mom was with me looking for books for my grandmother and hoping I could help her find a book or two, and she was like "Just get some of the books you want." And I was like "These aren't even half of the ones they have from my wishlist!"

@Tori- Thank you! Yeah, I went a little overboard...

@Chrissie- Thanks!

@Kay- Thanks! I read the first book & loved & have been meaning to continue the series for awhile, so here's hoping I like it! *crosses fingers*

Lynsey Newton said...

WOW! That's an impressive hoard!! Congratulations on your contest wins! I've won a few now and I *love* winning them. Am not entering anything and everything I can find! I know what you mean about not going overboard, I can't really help myself though!

The Library Lurker said...

Wow, that's a lot! I hope you like them all!

Spellboundbybooks Mel said...

Thats the same issue I have. I have so many books on my wishlist, but I also keep adding to them and picking up ones that aren't even on it.
Great Lot of books you have :)

Morgan said...

Wow, congratulations on winning all that stuff. I hope you enjoy all of your books!

Unknown said...

Great stash!! Love the frog candle holder :D

Unknown said...

What a great stash! No, you can never have too many books LOL Enjoy and have a great week! :)

Jan von Harz said...

Glad I a not the only one who went overboard this week. Thankfully I am on spring break and since I am now broke the only thing I can do is read, read, read. Congrats on your wins as well.

froggy is cute. but do tell, what does signed and snarked by mark henry mean???

Amanda Leigh said...

@Lynsey- Thanks! And good luck w/ you contests!

@The Library Lurker- Thanks, me too!

@Melissa- *sigh* There are just too many books out there and not enough time to read them all. Doesn't mean I can't try to!

@Morgan- Thank you!

@The Book Vixen- Thanks! I love the frog candle holder too! It's so adorable.

@Book Chick City- LOL Didn't think I'd be the only one that thought that. :)

@Jan- I'm finally starting to catch up a little on reading too. So, there's hope for me yet.

@vvb32-LOL, that's what it said I would be getting when I won it. He did write some pretty funny stuff when I signed it. He said it scared him a little since he felt like he was making it out to the character Amanda! Ha! Gotta love Mark Henry!

Lori said...

Holy crap you must have the luck of the Irish in you. You won quite a bit, didn't you? You did quite well in the purchasing department as well.Enjoy your books. Here'smine

Amanda Leigh said...

@Lori- Yeah, I have been rather lucky as of late, but it only works w/ book contests, nothing else.
