In My Mailbox 29

meme hosted by The Story Siren

Well, up until Friday I thought I’d have a fairly quiet IMM this week… and then suddenly all the mail seemed to pile in on Friday so I have some lovely goodies to show you all :) On a related note, you might notice that I have changed my IMM picture up at the top. That is actually a photo of my little condo mailbox that the mailman somehow managed to stuff 4 books into on Friday. (one of which I already took out, and couldn’t get back in to take the picture!)

If you missed it, some highlights from this week include reviews & interviews with Sophie Kinsella & Megan Crewe, meeting Anne Rice and an “exclusive clip” from The Hunger Games!



The Book of Lost Fragrances by M.J. Rose <– For read & review from Atria Books via Netgalley.

Bedbugs by Ben H. Winters <– Gifted from Christa (Hooked on Books), who had an extra copy (Thank you Christa!)

The Wolf Gift by Anne Rice <– Purchased at the Anne Rice event to get signed!

Half World by Hiromi Goto <– Won an autographed copy from!

Dark Eyes by William Richter <– For read & review from Razorbill

The Chaos by Nalo Hopkinson <– For read & review from Simon & Schuster Canada


Drift by Andrew Cyrus Hudson <– For read & review from author. (Quite surprised at the size of this printed copy! Like an 8.5 x 11 manuscript)

Misery Bear’s Guide to Love & Heartbreak by Misery Bear <– Won from Hachette UK Canada on Twitter. THE CUTEST BOOK EVER! (2nd pic is a snapshot of the hilarious table of contents..) Misery Bear’s also got a Youtube channel! Probably best/cutest discovery this past week.. adorableness!

What else… oh, of course. My lovely books signed by the Anne Rice! (recap of the event!)


And my autographed copy of Half World!

What did you guys get this week? Leave your link and I’ll be sure to check it out!

  11. Um…your mailman is crazy. That could have wrecked your books :) (yes I am aware that only book people think like this).

    Misery Bear sounds adorable and I now have to go check out the youtube channel for him.

    It’s amazing that you met Anne Rice. I totally love Interview with the Vampire and The Vampire Lestat so that is awesome. *side note, she has very neat writing*

    Dark Eyes is being called “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo for teens” so let me know how it is. I am curious to see if you like it.

    Happy reading Michele!

  12. Oooh autographed books by Anne Rice, that is awesome! 😀

    I feel like my IMM is the same way– one week I will get nothing, and then the next week all these books start arriving at the same time! Haha, love your new IMM pic, that is so funny, hopefully none of them were damaged!

  17. I love your mailbox button. Maybe it’s my eyes but the packages look like they form a flower shape. Isn’t it funny how the week seems quiet and then bam all these books show up. So cool about the Anne Rice books. And Misery Bear looks too cute.
