IMM - In My Mailbox (#5)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Story Siren

The purpose of it is to post about the books we received during the past week (ARC, electronic galleys, books won in giveaways, bought or borrowed from the library - you can list anything you want!)

I'm a bit late in the game this week, but I got some AWESOME books and I definitely need to brag about them! :D

Here are the books I've received this week:

I went to Holly Black and Cassandra Clare book signing at Chapters in Metrotown (Burnaby), and bought City of Fallen Angels, Clockwork Angel (for Lisa, who won my giveaway! Your book was signed and is already on it's way to you!)and The White Cat - got them all signed! (I waited about 6 hours in line.. but it was worth it! Cassie and Holly are wonderful *_*)
Then I got Entwined from Book Depository (yay~!) - the cover is simply gorgeous :D
And then I received Endlessly by C.V. Hunt for review :D (yay again!^^)

From netGalley I got:

A gay suburban hip-hopper freaks out her Christian high school - and falls in love - in this righteously funny and totally tender YA debut, for real.
Listen up: You’re about to get rocked by the fiercest, baddest all-girl hip-hop crew in the Twin Cities - or at least in the wealthy, white, Bible-thumping suburb of Holyhill, Minnesota. Our heroine, Esme Rockett (aka MC Ferocious) is a Jewish lesbian lyricist. In her crew, Esme’s got her BFFs Marcy (aka DJ SheStorm, the butchest straight girl in town) and Tess (aka The ConTessa, the pretty, popular powerhouse of a vocalist). But Esme’s feelings for her co-MC, Rowie (MC Rohini), a beautiful, brilliant, beguiling desi chick, are bound to get complicated. And before they know it, the queer hip-hop revolution Esme and her girls have exploded in Holyhill is on the line. Exciting new talent Laura Goode lays down a snappy, provocative, and heartfelt novel about discovering the rhythm of your own truth. (from Goodreads)
In a giveaway I won this one: 

He knew she was gone the second her cool touch withdrew from his arm. He never saw her but had felt her disappear into some cold, dark place. He perceived the black emptiness where she had been summoned, her deep anxiety filling his heart. But he couldn't reach her. He didn't even know her name.

Elias moved to Hazel Grove, California to get away from the rain, his parents, and everything that was taken from him in Hayward, Washington. But he thinks he may be going crazy when he starts seeing purple glitter in the air, the scent of rosemary is everywhere, and he is hearing a beautiful voice.

Jane is content in her life of solitude in the quiet town of Jasmyn Lake, but when her special magic sends her on a journey to meet the man she has been dreaming about for months, she cannot resist.

Look into the world of The Enchanters, where water has a sense of humor, trees scare people, and love - is destiny.
I got this lovely book from Allie Burke and I will definitely be reading and reviewing it soon! Thank you Allie!!! :)

I can't wait to dig into the books I got this week, all of them are awfully delicious!
Stay tuned for reviews! :)
And what did you get?

I'm so jealous that you get to go to book signings! I live in a non-English speaking country so my favorite authors are a no-show, lol!
Enjoy your new books.
