In My Mailbox

My buying ban failed, a little. I admit to picking up a couple books at a Borders going out of business sale, and I got some preorders in, and one I bought just because I'd been waiting for it to come out in paperback. Maybe this week I won't buy any. Maybe....

For Review:
Moonglass by Jessi Kirby
I'm Not Her by Janet Gurtler
Overprotected by Jennifer Laurens
Second Hand Heart by Catherine Ryan Hyde
Leap by Jodi Lundgreen
Jazz in Love by Neesha Meminger
Bad Taste in Boys by Carrie Harris (ARC already mailed out for tour, but I haz bookmarks!)
(Huge thanks to Jessi Kirby + Simon & Schuster, Janet Gurtler, Jennifer Laurens + Grove Creek Publishers, Catherine Ryan Hyde + Black Swan, Second Story Press, Neesha Meminger, and Carrie Harris)

Hope in Patience by Beth Fehlbaum

Purge by Sarah Darer Littman

  1. Great IMM this week! I cannot wait to read overprotected! Have a great reading week!

  2. Great books. Hope you enjoy them! I'm hoping to get to Angelfire soon. You can see what I got in my mailbox here.

  3. Fantastic books! It is sad that so many Borders stores are closing. The one near me is going out of business too :(

    I can't wait to read Jazz in Love and Babe in Boyland. I've got that one on order from the library. Angelfire looks really good too. I hope you enjoy your books.

  4. Wow so many great books this week. I loved Babe in Boyland. I can't wait to read I'm not Her. Happy Reading!

  5. SO. MANY. AWESOME. BOOKS! (!!!!) how do you ever find the time to read them!? either way, hope you like them!
    Here's what I got IMM!

  6. Great IMM! I gave up on book buying ban, as I fail every time. LOL

  7. Oooh... you bought Lockdown! I bought that when we all met at A Real Bookstore, but I haven't read it yet... Still looks REALLY good!

    And you have Moonglass now! Woo hoo!

  8. Our Borders is closing too! It was already pretty picked over by the time I got there so I didn't get any fiction - but I did pick up some cookbooks.

  9. Wow! You got a lot this week! Angelfire was pretty good! Curious to see where the rest of the series will go! Hope you enjoy it!

    My IMM goes up tomorrow! Be sure to stop by!

    a GREAT read

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  10. Awesome haul! I really need to go pick up Angelfire! (As soon as I get myself an ereader, I can get it from a library; my local library, and main source of reading material, isn't getting it:( )
    I really want to read Babe in Boyland, and enjoy The Amanda Project! Great book, and great price! (Though I do prefer the other cover, the pink one with no face.)
    Ooh! Bookmarks!
