In My Mailbox (1)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren to share books bought, borrowed from the library, received for review or won.  Enjoy!

This is my first In My Mailbox post!  Here are the books I received in the last week:


Nightshade by Andrea Cremer
I won this ARC in a giveaway from Steph Su Reads.  It turns out that Steph lives real close to me so we met up last weekend for lunch. I had a great time and I'm so psyched that such an awesome blogger lives in the next town over. Can't wait to hang out again!  Nightshade releases on October 19...hey, that's my birthday! :)

The Eternal Ones by Kirsten Miller (ARC for review, releases on August 10).
Deja vu...love at first sight...I'm so excited to read this one!

Fallout by Ellen Hopkins (ARC for review, releases on September 14)

The Last Town on Earth by Thomas Mullen
ARC, released in July 2007.  This is a BookCrossing bookray. You sign up for bookrays with your BC account, eventually get the book in the mail (the order usually based on shipping preference), read it, and then mail it to the next person on the bookray list.  The last person tends to continue the ray or send it to someone wishing for it as a RABCK (Random Act of BookCrossing Kindness). I'm 23rd on the list, so it's traveled pretty far...to Canada, Portugal, UK, South Africa, Finland, etc....how awesome is that?!?  It's next on my TBR list and when I'm done it's going to Washington state next (then it'll continue on to Japan...gotta love bookrays).

Wait For Dusk (Dark Days, book 5) by Jocelynn Drake
I finished book 4, Pray For Dawn, last week. Jocelynn Drake was in Maryland last month for a signing at Turn the Page Bookstore in Boonsboro, Maryland. I really wanted to go and meet her, but it's over 3 hours away and the road trip didn't work out. However, you could purchase signed (and personalized) copies online. YAY! Here's my signed copy that arrived in the mail last week:

"Michelle, The wait was too long. J Drake"

That's it for now. Have a great week!
