In My Mailbox

This week was one of the ones where I didn't think much would come, then was pleasantly surprised otherwise. I did buy a few books, telling myself it was an early birthday present before next week but, um, I also ordered a bunch more so basically it was a lame lie. Habits of an addict, I suppose.

For Review:
Compulsion by Heidi Ayarbe (Not picture but already read it and its phenomenal)
Slice of Cherry by Dia Reeves
Where I Belong by Gwendolyn Heasley
The Sapphire Talisman by Brenda Pandos
The Water Wars by Cameron Stratcher
Bull Rider by Suzanne Morgan Williams
Injane by Douglas Pearson
(Huge thanks to Heidi + HarperCollins, Dia + Simon & Schuster, Gwendolyn Heasley, Brenda Pandos, Kelley & Hall Book Publicity, Suzanne Morgan Williams + Simon & Schuster, and Pot-Boilers Publishing)

From Mindi Scott:
Signed Freefall (LOVE this book!)

Inside Out by Maria V. Snyder

Banished by Sophie Littlefield
The Curse of the Wendigo (The Monstrumologist 2) by Rick Yancey
Mostly Good Girls by Leila Sales

IMM is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren.

Also exciting this week.... Suzanne Young revealed the cover for her 2011 release A Need So Beautiful. Not only does this book look and sound absolutely amazing... the cover is absolutely gorgeous, and I think it is most definitely going to be hugely tied to and representative of the story itself. This one isn't coming out until June 2011 but make sure it stays on your radar. In Suzanne's own words from the post on her blog of the reveal, this book is "about a girl who is compelled to help people, even though each time she does, her friends and family start to forget who she is--her very existence fading into a glowing light."

Awesome, right? Now check out this hot little number:

Not going to lie, lovelies. I completely love the intensity on her face and the expression... and the title font is amazing. So considering this a Waiting on Wednesday (even though I most definitely will be using it again for that soon enough) and a reveal all in one. Because this one... yep. WANT.
