In My Mailbox

Before I get to this week's addition of IMM.... I want to say.... Lover Boy's (WIP2) first draft is officially DONE! I've even written the first chapter of what will be WIP3. I am still reeling on happiness..... But now, onto my books! I am so happy with several of these titles!

For Review:
So Shelly by Ty Roth
Personal Demons by Lisa Desrochers (Signed! Eep!)
Matched by Ally Condie
The Jumbee by Pamela Keyes
Empty by Suzanne Weyn
Being Jamie Baker by Kelly Oram
In the Belly of Jonah by Sandra Brannan
(Very special thanks to Ty Roth, Lisa Desrochers, Media Muscle, Scholastic, Kelly Oram, and Books at Midnight for these titles!)

And because I think it's cute... and he's a huge dork... here's Toby asleep. Passed out snoring, didn't even react when the camera flashed. And no, his chin is NOT resting on anything. Not even against his chest. I found it impressive he slept for like an hour this way.

IMM is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren.


  1. Toby is adorable! I know you hear this from various people every week, must be reminded.

    Anyway, you got some nice books for this week. I'll be getting some Personal Demons SWAG and MATCHED ARC sooooon. How exciting! Haven't heard of The JUMBEE. Will look into that one. All the others I've heard of before...

  2. I have The Jumbee too. You had a good week.

  3. I have The Jumbee too. You had a good week.
