In My Mailbox (#4)

In My Mailbox is a bookish meme hosted by Kristi @ The Story Siren

I had an awesome book week this week! Well, it's more an awesome book day since I acquired all my bookish goods just today. None the less, my haul is HUGE!

I'll start with the most exciting addition to my personal library (otherwise known as my book hoard). I won Raw Blue by Kristi Eagar! I'm so excited to read this one. I've heard lots of great things about it. And I have to offer thanks of epic proportions to Andrea @ The Busy Bibliophile

I volunteered, as usual, at my local library's Friends of the Library book sale today. I came home with numerous treasures at amazing prices (5 YA books for a buck!) These are just a few of my awesome finds. 

I found cancelled copies of Chasing Vermeer by Blue Balliett and Brett Helquist, The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman, and Twice Taken by Susan Beth Pfeffer.  ARC's of Graveminder by Melissa Marr, and The Lost Saint by Bree Despain. And finally a slightly worn copy of Prep by  Curtis Sittenfeld. There are a bunch more from the sale, I just don't have the space or the time to list them all.

And of course, since I was at the library, I had to check out some the newer releases. 

So obviously I had a great haul this week, I'd love to hear about yours. Don't forget to leave a link to your IMM post in the comments section. Happy Reading!
