In My Mailbox #31

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

The Piper's Son by Melina Marchetta

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
Happy Happy Clover, Vol. 5 by Sayuri Tatsuyama

Hush, Hush (Hush, Hush #1) by Becca Fitzpatrick
Monsters of Men (Chaos Walking, #3) by Patrick Ness

I never thought I would ever read The Piper's Son before it's US release or even hold the Australian edition in my hands. But I actually am now. O_O Melina Marchetta is my FAVORITE author, so I'm way beyond excited. Thanks to my Bookers friends on GoodReads! *glomps them all* I will start reading it as soon as I finish re-reading the companion novel Saving Francesca!

Hush, Hush was given to me by the same friend who sent The Piper's Son. Really curious about that one; I've read mixed reviews, so I wonder what I'll think about it. The final volume of Happy Happy Clover I bought for my little sister. It was suppose to be a birthday present, but since her birthday was weeks ago...looks like it'll be a Christmas present instead. It's a cute, short manga series for kids. It'll especially appeal to girls. :) Also bought Anna and the French Kiss; plan on reading it with my GoodReads book group sometime next week. Can't wait! :D

And finally, Candlewick Press held a contest for a t-shirt on their Twitter. I was not the winner; however, since there was only 3 (!!) participants, they sent me a free book! The book ended up being a signed, hardcover copy of Monsters of Men, which was really cool. I'm super motivated to read the 'Chaos Walking' trilogy, but I need to find time to read them because they're thick books!

Well, that's it for this week! Hopefully my next IMM will be as exciting. Now, time to continue reading. >:)
