In My Mailbox #43

Before I get to my IMM, here's some exciting news! These authors will be attending the South Carolina Book Festival in Columbia, SC on May 14-15:
There's a lot more authors, but these are the ones I'm most interested in seeing. This will be my first year attending the SC Book Festival. I'm really glad there will finally be authors there that I've actually read books by. If you live close to Columbia, come to the festival or spread the word! It's a free event. :)

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

For Review:
Dreamland Social Club by Tara Altebrando (Won from LibraryThing.)

Everlost (Skinjacker trilogy, #1) by Neal Shusterman
Everwild (Skinjacker trilogy, #2) by Neal Shusterman

Won / Gifted:
The Iron King (Iron Fey, #1) by Julie Kagawa (Thanks to Maria V. Synder!)
Firelight (Firelight, #1) by Sophie Jordan (Thanks to Arlene!)

Since Neal Shusterman's panel at the SC Book Festival is for his final book, Everfound, in the Skinjacker trilogy, I figured I should read the first two books before then, so that I won't feel lost when I'm there. Umm... Well...hopefully I read them in time. :P

Normally I don't like covers with photos of a bunch of people in the background, especially if I can see their faces, but I'm kind of liking the cover of Dreamland Social Club. I think it's the title font and the COLORS that's doing it for me. I won the ARC through LibraryThing's March batch. Reading it now & plan on reviewing it sometime this month.

The other books I got this week are not pictured in the top photo. I won a signed copy of The Iron King through the blog of author Maria V. Synder, and I received a signed copy of Firelight from an awesome book friend! Very exciting because I enjoyed both books and didn't already own copies. Big thanks to both of them! :)

That's it for this week! (Btw, sorry for the lack of reviews lately. I haven't been feeling inspired. I'm slowly getting over that. :p)
