I haven't done an In My Mailbox in three and a half months! I have a lot to get through so let's get to it:
For Review from Simon and Schuster Canada
City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare (plus buttons and poster)
Possession ARC by Elana Johnson
Huge thanks to Simon and Schuster Canada! They are so good to me. My City of Fallen Angels review went up on the blog a week ago (I loved it!) and my review for Possession should be up on its release day, June 7. There is still time to enter in my Possession ARC Giveaway, by the way.
Bought from The Strand
The Percy Jackson Series by Rick Riordan
White Cat by Holly Black
Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan
Inside Out by Maria V. Snyder
The Ask and the Answer by Patrick Ness
Graceling by Kristin Cashore
It was just INSANE how cheap the books were at The Strand Bookstore in NYC. You would never be able to find prices like that here in Canada. I bought the ten books above at extremely low prices and then seriously had to restrain myself from buying any more. I wouldn't have been able to fit any more in my suitcase on the way home! I am officially on a Book Buying Ban now.
Bought (Not from The Strand)
Divergent by Veronica Roth
Prisoners in the Palace by Michaela MacColl
I also bought Prisoners in the Palace while I was in NYC, but from the Borders bargain bin. I broke down on my Book Buying Ban only a few days after it was put into effect and bought Divergent back at home. But it was worth it (as you can tell from my Divergent review)! And I swear I'm done for the year. I still have my birthday and Christmas left this year if I am dying to get more books, but no more book buying for me.
So, as you can see, I am one lucky S.O.B. I'm thinking I should start buying lottery tickets with the luck I get. I mean, I won two separate, signed by the author, Breathless Reads contests! Yes, I admit I am a contest junkie. I can't thank the hosts of these contests enough! Seriously, you all made day. I hope to continue to give back by hosting at least one giveaway a month. Seeing as how I just passed 500 Followers, I think that would qualify as a good excuse for a giveaway once my Possession ARC Giveaway is over.
The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
The Girl Who Played With Fire by Stieg Larsson
I borrowed these first two books in The Millenium Trilogy from my aunt and am reading the first one now. Thanks Auntie!
