In My Mailbox (#19)

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 really should start doing my IMMs regularly. And by regularly I mean every week, instead of every two-or-three weeks. The amount of books that I got in my mailbox over the last three weeks is huge. 35 books - some of them for review, some bought, some gifted... I love them all SO VERY MUCH *_* Just looking at them makes me happy and I can't wait to read them all (I've already read some of these beauties and they were pretty awesome!).

But enough rambling, let's see what we have here..

About two weeks ago the fabulous people at Random House Canada hosted a Book Blogger Appreciation party at the RHC HQ. I was one of the lucky ducks who got invited to this wonderful event, unfortunately, I couldn't attend (*insert a VERY sad face*). That day I woke up with fever and a very nasty sinus infection :( I was heartbroken! Especially since Random House Canada invited some absolutely fabulous authors to talk about their literary endeavors! (Erin Morgenstern, Paula McLain, and Ami McKay - can you believe that?!)

Thank GOD for NICOLE and LINDSEY from Random House! These two lovely ladies made sure I wasn't left empty-handed! <3 <3 <3 When I met up with Nicole a few days after the event, she handed me a bag of goodies - or, what I like to call, THE BAG OF OMFG-I-Think-I-Just-Peed-Myself!

Can't thank you enough Nicole for always thinking about me <3 You know how much I love you, right?! You're made of win, gal!!!

Thank you so much, Lindsey, for the fantabulous bag of books AND for the top-notch RH mug!!! I LOVE IT OH-SO-MUCH!!! <3

Now, take a look at the books that I found in the bag, including the amazing signed and personalized copies:

(There's one more book that is not featured on the picture - got lost in the pile of books behind! you can see it above, tho, at one of the other pictures, it's: Magnified World)

Signed copies:


Thanks to the weekly feature I started a few months ago here, on Bookish, I am scoring at least 20-30 freebies every week :D my Kindle is getting heavy! Check these out, yo!

That's all I got. How about you? What did you get in your mailbox? Leave a comment and I'll drop by! :)

We have one book in common this week. I got a copy of Under My Skin, although mine is an ARC, not a finished version. Does your cover really have the rainbow-ish on it, or is that a funny reflection?

Can not wait to see what you think of Before I Fall. Heard awesome things.

SO . . . MUCH . . . AWESOME. O_O The Repossession, The Girl Who Could Silence the Wind, Illuminate, The Gathering Storm, Starters, TFiOS, Unearthly, Before I Fall, The Night Circus, Innocent Darkness, This Is Not A Test, Shadow and Bone . . . -brain explodes- Really, you should definitely make these more frequently, because it might prevent the sheer awesome of your bookstacks from further damaging my brain. I just can't get over how fantastic all of this stuff is. I really, really hope you enjoy it.

Dani said...
