In My Mailbox -32-

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren every Sunday. In My Mailbox is a weekly meme that lets everyone see what books you have received or bought that week.

For Review
1. Pegasus - Robin McKinley. Many thanks to Vimala from Penguin Canada for sending me this title for review!
2. Nightshade - Andrea Cremer. Many thanks to Vimala from Penguin Canada, for also sending this title for review.
3. Pretty Little Things - Jilliane Hoffman. Many thanks goes to Anna from FSB Media for sending this title for review. 
4. Pies & Prejudice - Heather Vogel Frederick. Many thanks goes to Kelsey for setting up the tour for this title, as well as Heather Vogel Frederick and Bernadette from Simon & Schuster (US) for sending me this title for review. 

Bought
1. The Night My Sister Went Missing - Carol Plum-Ucci

Okay, so I broke down. I only bought one book though, so the ban is still in full force. I can't wait for September, when I'll lift the ban (temporarily) because it'll be my birthday, so any books I buy will be my birthday present to me. Here's hoping I don't go overboard! Oh, and I may have a birthday contest for you guys too at that time. ;) Keep your eye out for that!

Speaking of contests... I currently have one running for Ebony McKenna's Ondine. Be sure to check out her interview, and enter the contest. It ends September 3rd and is open only to those in the US and Canada. (Sorry to those of you who are international.)

That's what I received in my mailbox this week, what did you get in yours? 

Happy reading!

YOU GOT PEGASUS AND NIGHTSHADE. *bows down to Corrine* Curse my Aussie residency!

Happy reading...

I got 3 books + swag over the past few weeks, pathetic I know, but I've had exams so I can't complain.

Corrine said...

Cass, Thanks! I think opening the package with both of those books made my entire week. They've been on my want list for so long! Here's hoping you'll be able to get them soon?
Hey, it's all good. At least you had more time to prepare for your exams? Now that they're over, hopefully the books will pick back up! :)

I'm very envious of 'Pegasus'. I've loved the little that I've read of Robin McKinley, so I'll be interested to read your review of this.
