Check behind the cut to see more about what I got, to leave comments and links to your IMM, and to squee with me at the random goodies the mail brought me this week!
RECEIVED FROM PUBLISHER:
CINDER (Lunar Chronicles #1) by Marissa Meyer
Publishes January 3rd, 2012 by Feiwel and Friends
387 Pages // ARC
This one was a total random surprise since I already have the Netgalley version. I can't wait to dig in and find out what all my friends are squeeing about, even though I must admit I am not a big fan of the Cinderella story unless it's EVER AFTER, which I strangely love. We'll see!
THE PROBABILITY OF MIRACLES by Wendy Wunder
Published December 8, 2011 by Razorbill
336 Pages // ARC
Another random mail surprise, I was totally not expecting this! I hadn't actually given this one much of a look until it arrived in my mail, but now that I have it, I can't wait to find a chance to read it.
WAYWARD SAINTS by Suzzy Roche
Publishes January 17th, 2012 by Voice
272 Pages // ARC (Shelf Awareness)
I will admit I have browsed through this for a chapter or two and I couldn't find myself getting into it, which is sad because I love a good book about former hellraisers turned domestic Stepford Wives. The writing style was very off to me, so it might just get passed to my mother. Disappointing :(
THE THIRTEEN by Susie Moloney
Publishes April 10th, 2012 by William Morrow
336 Pages // ARC (LibraryThing)
My second LibraryThing win, I plan on reading this soon. I read a few pages and I don't know what to think yet. Stay tuned for some more coherent thoughts but the plot sounds really good. AND THAT COVER. That's why I entered to win!
RECEIVED FROM AUTHOR:
SURVIVAL (The Guardians of Vesturon Series #1) by AM Hargrove
Published November 14th, 2011
I actually got this a few weeks back and forgot to share it with you! I have had the pleasure of chatting with the author, who is supremely awesome. She had me sold on this book with the fact it takes place near where I went to college. I will be reading this next, so stay tuned for a review!
RECEIVED FROM RANDOM BUZZERS:
THE SPECTACULAR NOW by Tim Tharp
Published October 20th, 2008 by Knopf Books for Young Readers
294 Pages // Hardcover
If you're not a member of Random Buzzers, you should be! I bought this as they were clearing out the store for the holidays with my buzz bucks and got it this week. It's a boy book, but all girls need boy books occasionally. It helps us see that the opposite sex really is as weird as we suspect.
MEGAN'S AWESOME SPECTACULAR CHRISTMAS GIFT:
ALEXANDER MCQUEEN: SAVAGE BEAUTY
Published May 31st, 2011 by Metropolitan Museum of Art
224 Pages // Hardcover
When I was living in New York City, I took my dad to see this show about a week after it opened. And yes, it was as amazing as you might have heard if you are into art. I coveted this but couldn't afford it when I saw it at the Museum gift shop, but my dad bought it for me on Amazon. It's GORGEOUS. And yes, I am an art nut and former member of the Museum of Modern Art. I went there too many times to count when I lived in New York.
