IMM (15) Holly Cupala Rox my Sox!

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme created by Kristi, The Story Siren, who is beautiful and wonderful and has amazing books!

From the Library I got:

A Blue So Dark by Holly Schindler (Holly asked me to write a blurb for her website, and she will be stopping here on her blog tour for Playing Hurt, her sophomore book due out this spring!)

Beautiful Malice by Rebecca James (review is out!)
Girl, Stolen by April Henry (a Contemp book)

Stork by Wendy Delsol

Elixir by Hilary Duff (I wonder how her marriage affected her romantic writing…)

Harmonic Feedback by Tara Kelly

Hush by Eishes Chayil

Birthmarked by Caragh M. O’Brien (Irish name, gotta love ‘em!)

The Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney (another Contemp book!)

I won a contest on Holly Cupala's blog and she sent me a book I’ve been dying to read AND swag!

I have in my hands a signed two chapter teaser for Tell Me A Secret, a TAMS button and four, yes, four, signed bookmarks which is a really good reason to follow me, if you catch my drift.




The Heist Society by Ally Carter (I won it on Holly’s blog)

I also went to my local half price bookstore and my dearest dad picked up my tab, thanks Daddy!
Identical by Ellen Hopkins (my first Ellen!)

Tricks by Ellen Hopkins (My second Ellen!)

Suite Scarlett by Maureen Johnson (I already had a paperback, but hadn’t read it, another fab reason to follow me!)

Rooms by James L. Rubart (My mom said I needed to read it)

Pieces of Happily Ever After by Irene Zutell (I love the cover and the title)

Distant Waves by Suzanne Weyn (I watched Titanic recently and bawled my eyes out)

Petals in the Ashes by Mary Hooper (now I just need the first one)

Born in Blue by Han Nolan (this is my second Nolan, his newest book, Crazy, is on my shelf)

Rx by Tracy Lynn (Dad paid for a drug book, it was a riot, but you had to have been there)

Flowers in the Attic (I hate this cover, I wanted the newer cover, but Kiera Cass rec’ed it; if I like it, I’ll trade covers)

Heliotropium by Fr. Jeremias Drexelius, S.J. (For those of you who don’t speak Latin, Heliotropium means The Sunflower. The bloom will always face the sun, even on a cloudy day)

The Eyes of Kid Midas by Neal Shusterman (oh, so eighties)

In the comments, tell me which Ellen was your first, and what you got in your mailbox!

You got a wonderful collection of books this week. I have never read anything by Ellen Hopkins but a lot of my students really enjoy them. Happy reading and happy holidays!

:) Hehe, I'll never get tired of my books, but I really think it's a shame that I'm the only one reading them. But since I live in Sweden there aren't so many possibilities of book-trading /sharing...well, even my friends don't read English books! I'm so jealous of everyone who can simply go town/city/whatever and walk into the bookstore and browse! I don't have that luxury :(
Anyway, thanks for leaving a comment on my blog!
By the way, I really really loved 'Girl, stolen' - great book.
And I'm jealous that you got to meet Stephanie Perkins...I have never the opportunity to meet authors or get books signed...ghaahh..I guess I have to move:P..
Sorry for the long comment.
Happy reading

Fantastic mailbox! I loved Holly Cupala's Tell Me a Secret. I want to read The Mockingbirds and Hush. I've heard fantastic things about both.
