In My Mailbox (#2)

In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren

I had a pretty good book week this week. 
  1. I won a copy of The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson. Many thanks to Angie from Beneath the Jacket
  2. Then I received an advanced reading copy of Article 5 by Kristen Simmons. A big thank you to Tor Teen.
  3. I went to my local library and found a copy of Dirty Little Secrets by C. J. Omololu. I'd heard  good things about this one from a few different bloggers. And when I found out it was about hoarding, it immediatly became a must read for me. I'm not ashamed in the least to say that I'm totally addicted to the reality show Hoarders.
  4. And finally, my request for Caragh O'Brien's Prized was finally approved this week. Thank you Netgalley and Roaring Brook Press. 
How was your book week? Tell me all about it, or just and a link in the comments section. I LOVE getting comments!

P.S. And yes, my desk is always that messy!
