In My Mailbox (11)

In My Mailbox: What is it?
In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren.It's an opportunity to share the books we've bought or received in the last week!

I am SO. EXCITED. to read all of these books, so I've had a very nice week indeed, and there's been much squealing and happy-dancing when I get home in the afternoon and open the contents of the mailbox.

Also, this mailbox is now with 40% EXTRA AWESOME, thanks to the gorgeous, amazing, sweeter-than puppies-dipped-in-sugar, Celine St. Clair from from Forget Me Not! Celine is seriously one of my favorite bloggers--not to mention favorite people--and completely out of the blue, she sent me Carrier of the Mark and The Future of Us! Thank you thank you thank you Celine! ♥♥♥

From top to bottom:

  1. Carrier Of The Mark, Leigh Fallon
  2. The Future Of Us, Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler
  3. The Alchemy of Forever, Avery Williams
  4. Dead To You, Lisa McMann
  5. Bittersweet, Sarah Ockler

So, what did the book faeries bring you this week? and, while you're here, would you like to win a copy of the AMAZING Touch Of Power by Maria V. Snyder?

  6. Aw, Celine is super sweet! I'm so jealous of The Future of Us because I vastly prefer the international cover to the US one. Hooray for Bittersweet, like I've been trying to warn everyone: prepare a cupcake or two in advance! I hope you enjoy all your books, Sarah! x

  7. Celine is super sweet indeed! I like her alot! I hope you enjoy THE FUTURE OF US, I loved that book. Great haul Sarah. x

    Enjoy and happy reading, dearest Sarah! :)

  9. Great books you got this week. I really enjoyed Carrier of the Mark. Hope you enjoy reading all your books :)

  10. Hehe! Celine St. Clair. Fine, I won't try to steal Etienne from her because that name just rolls beautifully off your tongue. She is so impossibly SWEET! Yay! I can't wait to see what you think of COTM and I really liked The Future of Us! Oooh and you got Dead To You! Can't wait for your reviews!

    Also, you need to hurry and read The Alchemy of Forever so I know it's amazing and then I can rush through my TBR to get to it quicker.

    Random, but look! Mr. Elphant Bookmarkman is back! I've seen him a couple of times, lurking in the shadows. But when he's absent, he's obviously on a date with his Lady Elphant friend.

  11. AHHhhhh. I soooooo BADLY want to read Dead to You. I'm waiting for my copy of Bittersweet; can't wait to hear your thoughts on it. I really like The Future of Us, and I hope you do too. AWESOME books this week. Happy reading.

  12. I know, right? Celine from Forget Me Not is an amazing blogger.

    Wow, you got a great haul this week. Since I haven't done IMM for a little while, this week's IMM is just for the books and stuff I won.

  13. Ahh, I still need to read THE FUTURE OF US and BITTERSWEET. I die a little bit inside every time I think about the fact I haven't yet! Enjoy!!

  14. OMG awesome! I really like The Future of Us's cover (well, from the side). It's so colorful!
