In my Mailbox (2)
In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren to catalog everything you've acquired in the bookish category in the past week. This week I bought some books, checked out some books, traded for a book which will not be pictured here, and won a book. Let's see what I got!
WON FROM ST. MARTIN'S GRIFFIN
Glow by Amy Kathleen Ryan - their Facebook page makes it out like they think this will be bigger than The Hunger Games. It's next on my to read list, so we'll see. It's obvious they're putting a lot behind this one trying to promote it. But I found out about this contest through Shelf Awareness and it was on Facebook and 1000 people won, so probably a lot of reviews of this one coming!
Wondrous Strange by Lesley Livingston (Amazon Bargain Books)
Strange Angels by Lili Saitncrow (Amazon Bargain Books)
Secrets of the Sea by Nicholas Shakespeare (Amazon Bargain Books)
The Polysyllabic Spree by Nick Hornby (Thrift Store)
Bridget Jones's Diary by Helen Fielding (Thrift Store)
Looking for Alaska by John Green
The Lying Game by Sara Shepherd
Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles
Bad Girls Don't Die by Katie Alender
So thanks to St. Martin's for choosing my name to win this book! I'm a sucker for science fiction as you might have realized by now. It's strange I've gone an entire month (yes, today is my one month blogoversary!) and not said one thing about Farscape or Aliens or anything like that.
So what did you guys get?
