In My Mailbox (21)

This meme is hosted by The Story Siren, and is a great opportunity for bloggers t. o show what books they bought, received in the mail, or borrowed from the library/friend.


I know that my last post was an IMM, but we took a trip to Texas this past week, and I haven’t been able to post anything. Reviews are coming this week!! Please be sure to leave your IMM links so I can return comments and follows! =)


Almost my entire Mailbox this week came from one sweet, dear friend. Marla from Starting the Next Chapter told me that she was going to an author signing, and said she’d try to get me a bookmark signed. HECK YES! I was completely stoked about that! Upon arriving home from our trip I discovered THIS in my mailbox…


Haunting Violet – Alexandra Harvey
SWEET BIRTHDAY CARD!

Bookmarks
SIGNED – The Near Witch by Victoria Schwab
Between Shades of Grey
Die for Me – Amy Plum
