In My Mailbox (05/01/11)

I honestly didn't even realize that I got so many books this month.

I went to a Kelley Armstrong signing where I picked up The Gathering before it's release date. I also grabbed a signed copy of Cryer's Cross. I ran to the bookstore after school to pick up CoFA and devoured it.

All the books I bought in the weeks of April 10th and 24th were from the Scholastic catalogues that my younger brother brings home from school so the books were really cheap. I bought the Goddess Girls series for 13 dollars. All four of them. I just can't resist their prices! I bought the Mythlopedia books and The Giver from Scholastic as well.

XOXOXOXO to Brodie! She's just the best! She bought me Falling Under, which I can't wait to dive into.

And Galley Grab. LOVE! I got two of my most anticipated books from their newsletter, Blood Red Road and He's So Not Worth It! YEAHHHHHHHH! 

This was a long post so thank you to whoever (whomever?) reads the whole thing. If you didn't, that's cool! Just link me your IMMs in the comments and I'll drop by!
