In My Mailbox (55)

Sunday, February 5, 2012 with
It was a pretty good week in books for me.

Review Book
Pure by Julianna Baggott
A big thanks to Dana and Grand Central for sending Pure and for scaring the bejesus out of me when the blue [windup] butterfly flew out. It was indeed a surprise. :D

Birthday Book
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
It was my 25th birthday on Groundhog Day so, as I do every year, I treated myself to a new book.

What did you guys get in your mailbox?

"In My Mailbox" is a weekly event that gives book bloggers a chance share with each other what books got added to their to-be-read pile for the week. It was inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie and hosted by Kristi of The Story Siren.
