In My Mailbox

It was an amazingly good week in books for me plus Alyson Noel came to Dallas for a signing on Thursday. Oh yes, I went. Oh yes, there were pictures. And, oh, remember those awesome orange Chucks I got from Heidi Kling? That's right. Alyson signed them. It was, well, awesome! Not to mention, it was the first shoe she had ever signed.

For Review:
Firelight by Sophie Jordan
Everlasting by Angie Frazier
Indigo Blues by Danielle Joseph
Minder by Kate Kaynak
Of Bees and Mist by Erick Setiawan
(Very big thank you to Sophie Jordan, Angie Frazier, Danielle Jospeh, Kate Kaynak and Simon & Schuster)

Yes, that's me in my Paranormalcy T-Shirt from Kiersten White. With Alyson Noel.

And here is Alyson signing my shoe... and the final product!

That was my week. What did everyone else get?

  3. Wow, looks like some great reads this week! A few I think I'm going to have to check out.

    I love those pics! My dogs would so not stay still for all that! I caught my one dog the other day trying to make a run for the garden with my book bag in his mouth! lol

  4. Isn't Alyson such a sweetheart?! I met her at a signing and she is the sweetest person! Love the book haul!

  5. AHHH Delirium! I am seething with envy. Well, maybe not seething but super jealous nonetheless haha. Brilliant books as always. Your bookshelf must be glorious.

    Enjoy! ;D
