In My Mailbox (2): HarperTeen Goodies

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi of The Story Siren (and inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie) to showcase any books that I have bought or borrowed or won to read.

A couple weeks ago, HarperTeen had a twitter contest: their 9,000th follower would get a prize. Being bored that day and looking for a way to procrastinate on my studying I attempted to be that 9,000th person. Like a loser, I refreshed their twitter page every second for 15 minutes. Looks like it paid off though because I won. I had no idea what I had won but suffice it to say I wasn't expecting a prize this grand:

Wildwing by Emily Whitman (released September 21, 2010)
Invisible I (The Amanda Project #1) by Stella Lennon, Melissa Kantor (released September 22, 2009)
Secrets of a First Daughter by Cassidy Calloway (released September 1, 2010)
Darkest Mercy ARC (Wicked Lovely #5) by Melissa Marr (to be released February 22, 2011)
Swag: 2 buttons from The Amanda Project Series, a USB Inkpop Bracelet, a HarperTeen tote bag

Crazy amazing! So many books I can't wait to read. Probably the most exciting book here is the Darkest Mercy ARC but unfortunately I haven't read the first four books in this series yet. Darn! I'm really happy about the USB bracelet because my dog ate my last one. I promise to keep this one well out of reach! Also super stoked about the tote bag which is definitely going to become my new bag that I buy and carry my books with. No more plastic bags for me; reusable is the way to go! :D
Thanks HarperTeen! (anyone reading this should definitely follower their twitter if you haven't done so yet already)


  1. Awesome win!! Congrats! I have Wildwing in my mailbox today, too. That bag is very cute.

  2. The Darkest Mercy cover is just so beautiful:)Wish you so much fun with your new books, especially ARCs:)

  5. That is a pretty damn awesome prize! And it's ironic you said you kept refreshing the page like a loser, 'cos that's kinda the opposite of what you did!
    I hope you enjoy all your books/ prizes. I slightly jealous (in a nice way) of your Darkest Mercy ARC and Wildwing also looks epic.
    Happy reading! :)

    Oh, and I love your blog name :D

  6. @Miss Sighanide: you're right that is ironic. Didn't even think of that! And I LOLd when you said that you were jealous "in a nice way" haha. I really love your blog name, too!
    @Emma Michaels: Thanks for following and stopping by!

  7. That's quite the prize! Looks like you have plenty to keep you busy for a while. :)

    Happy Reading!

  8. Awesome mailbox! I really need to read the Wicked Lovely series too =) Those bags are so neat! Enjoy!
