In My Mailbox #34

In My Mailbox was created by Kristi at The Story Siren, inspired by Alea at Pop Culture Junkie.

Bought:
Let It Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson, Lauren Myracle

For Review:
A Touch Mortal [ARC] by Leah Clifford [from Different Area Codes Book Tour]

Gift:
Low Red Moon by Ivy Devlin
Matched (Matched, #1) by Ally Condie

Finished reading A Touch Mortal yesterday, and my review will be up in a week or two. (If anyone wants to know...I didn't like it. :\) Let It Snow I read last year. I really liked the first two stories, so when I saw it was on sale for about $4 at Books A Million, I decided to get it. That's all I bought. That BAM didn't have much of a selection as the other BAM in my previous IMM.

I honestly haven't heard great things for Low Red Moon or even Matched. But my fellow book friend, Tina, didn't want her copies anymore. And I'm willing to give them a try. (I love the book jacket for LRM! It's blazin'! O_O) Thankies, Tina!

And here's something really cool that isn't pictured above...


Yes! Mockingjay officially signed/stamped by Suzanne Collins! Meaning... I have a copy Suzanne Collins, the one who wrote the amazing trilogy and came up with the awesome characters Katniss & PEETA, actually touched! *awe*

I won this from Down With The Capitol through their Twitter. I was completely shocked when I found out. Wasn't even expecting it. So happy and grateful though! :D I now have two copies of MJ, but I won't be getting rid of my other copy because this stamped copy will stay at the very top of my bookshelf. And no one will be allowed to read it. Normally I wouldn't do that to signed books, but...c'mon! This is Suzanne Collins! :p hehe Thank you, DWTC!

Okay, that's it for this week. Really hope I find something in my mailbox next week (*cough*Fall For Anything). Have a great day! :)

  2. I loved Let it Snow! I enjoyed Matched, too, but I know opinions are fairly mixed on that one; was not such a fan of Low Red Moon, but hopefully you'll like it.

    I'm super jealous of your copy of Mockingjay!!

  3. Awesome haul this week :)

    Low Red Moon was ok - I liked the writing but the story didn't really do it for me. It's still worth the read though.
    I've had Matched forever - yeah - mixed reviews but I still want to read it!

    Happy Reading!
