In My Mailbox #27

Ballads of Suburbia by Stephanie Kuehnert
Stolen by Lucy Christopher
Unwind (Unwind, #1) by Neal Shusterman

Gift & Library:
Ruined (How to Ruin, #1-3) by Simone Elkeles
Firelight (Firelight, #1) by Sophie Jordan

-Mockingjay buttons (from Big Honcho Media)
-Two Darkest Powers buttons (from Kelley Armstrong)
-Two book buttons (from Arlene)
-Beautiful Darkness dog tag (picked up by Arlene at the tour)
-Smart Chicks Kick It bookmark (signed by Kelley Armstrong)

Loved Unwind so much I had to buy my own copy. Can't wait for the sequel! I've been wanting to read Ballads of Suburbia and Stolen for awhile, so I decided to buy them. From the library, checked out Firelight. I still need to read those other library books I have. ^^;

A huge thanks goes out to Arlene for getting me a copy of Ruined, since there are no Borders or Waldenbooks where I live. And also for sending me swag and getting Kelley Armstrong to sign my copy of The Reckoning at the Smart Chicks Kick It Tour! You are awesome! *glomps*

There's the pic of my signed book on the right. In a note, I asked Kelley Armstrong if she could write "Chloe/Derek FTW!" (because I love me some Chloe/Derek and nothing else came to mind) and she did! She also gave me Chloe & Derek buttons! They just look so freakin' adorable. She is one cool author. :D Thanks Kelley Armstrong and again Arlene!

Lastly, back in August, some blogs were part of the Hunger Games District Blog Tour. Each held contests for various Hunger Games merchandise, and I actually won something! Glow-in-the-dark Mockingjay buttons from Jenn's Bookshelves, who was District 8 in the tour. I was so excited when I received them. Thanks to Jenn & Big Honcho Media!

Well, that's it for now! Can't wait to see your IMM. :)


  1. Stolen is a wonderful book! I am sure you will love it.

    Here's what's In My Mailbox

  2. You got some great books!
    And I'm a little jealous of that Elkeles bind-up! There aren't any Borders/Waldenbooks near me either...

    Hope you enjoy! :)

  3. Oh yay! Ballads of Suburbia. I've got that one, too! :D I think we discussed that on GR, though. Let me know when you are gonna read it and I'll try to read it at the same time! I am jealous of every single other book you got, too.

    I almost bought Unwind at Borders the other day. It was actually in my hands, but I changed my mind to Personal Demons at the last second.

  4. @Briana: There use to be a Waldenbooks, but it closed down. D: I think Borders is selling Ruined online though! For only $9.99. :)

    @Jen: Okay, I'll let you know about Ballads. Just gotta get through some library books first. :3
    lol Can't wait to hear what you think about Personal Demons then. :D

  5. Great mailbox! I'm curious about Ruined!
