In Our Mailbox (39)

Leslie and I got a bunch of awesome young adult books this week that we super excited to read. I was also one of the winner of Michelle Zink's "random shite" giveaway and I got a tote bag, stickers and candy (not pictured because they were eaten as soon as I opened the package). Then, we got a super awesome surprise from Little Brown which got us doing the happy dance.

It was a good week for romance too. The book that I won from Cynthia Eden's giveaway came in the mail with a bunch of awesome swag. I picked up a copy of The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie from the Borders sale because I loved Mac and Cam's book in the series but I haven't read Ian's yet.

  6. All These Things I've Done sounds so interesting! Can't wait to see what everyone thinks of Carrier of the Mark once the reviews start rolling in. Jealous of you having a copy of Daughter of Smoke & Bone with the old cover even if it has a big ol label in the middle of it. I'm about to pre order my copy! And I really liked Healey's other book so hopefully The Shattering will be just as good. Happy reading!
