In My Mailbox (6)

In My Mailbox at The Story Siren

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren, and inspired by her friend, Alea of Pop Culture Junkie. It's a way to share the books that you've received over the past week. They could come from the bookstore, the library, a friend, your mailbox or wherever. It gives us all a chance to showcase the books that we've gotten, and maybe give others an idea for the book they want to read or buy next. :)

For Review:
 Elemental Reality (Elemental #1) by Cesya MaRae Cuono
 Fated Encounter (A Holloway Pack Mini) by J.A. Belfield

I actually got Fated Encounter last week, but I forgot to put it on my IMM, so I decided to put it on this one. :)

From NetGalley and GalleyGrab:
  You Are My Only by Beth Kephart (NetGalley)
 Lie by Caroline Bock (NetGalley)
 Shattered Dreams: A Midnight Dragonfly Novel by Ellie James (NetGalley)
 Fake Me a Match by Lauren Barnholdt (Simon and Schuster GalleyGrab)
 Past Perfect by Leila Sales (Simon and Schuster GalleyGrab)
 The Pledge by Kimberly Derting (Simon and Schuster GalleyGrab)

In case anyone's curious, The Pledge is not this month's GalleyGrab newsletter, but the link to it is floating around twitter, and if you tweet at me, I'd be happy to send you the link, too. :)

Won:
 Shine by Lauren Myracle (from EarPhoria)
  Spellbound by Cara Lynn Shultz (from Pure Imagination during blog tour)
Children of the Elementi by Ceri Clark (from LibraryThing)
  Rippler by Cidney Swanson (from LibraryThing)
 The Thirteenth Chime by Emma Michaels (from The Itzel Library
  The Water Wars by Cameron Stracher (from Raincoast Books' newlettter
  Haunted by Joy Preble (from Raincoast Books' newlettter)
 I'm Not Her by Janet Gurtler (from Raincoast Books' newlettter)
  If I Tell by Janet Gurtler (Liz who sent Raincoast Books prizes tossed this one in as an extra :D)

I've had a spring of luck over the last little while, and these are some of the awesome goodies I've gotten! :D

Bought:
 The Craving (The Vampire Diaries: Stefan's Diaries #3) by (bought at Walmart)
 iDrakula by Bekka Black (bought on Amazon's Kindle Store) - on sale right now! ;D

I'm slowly trying to get all of Stefan's diaries, but I ended up buying the 3rd one first because it was the only one at Walmart, and I ordered the second one on The Book Depository...now I just need Origins! haha

Well that was my mailbox this week, what was yours like? :D

Happy Reading!!!
