I don't normally do any In My Mailbox type posts, because I don't usually get a lot of new books for me. I rarely buy new books right now, because I'm (like everyone else it seems) trying to save money, and I don't really have the space for them anyway. Most of the books I read right now are either the books I do own, books I get from the library, or (more recently) the books I receive through the ARC tour sites I follow. And, I figure if I get a tour book in the mail, I'll be reviewing it within a week or two anyway, so there's no real need for a post about it.
BUT, this past week, I got some of my giveaway prizes in the mail, and I'm so excited about them, I just had to share them!
So, back in September, I won a giveaway on the blog, The Mountains of Instead. She's a UK blogger, which is why they took so long to get here. I got The Enemy AND The Dead, both by Charlie Higson. And even better? The Dead doesn't come out over here until next year, so I get it early! :)
That same day I also received the book I won on Alexandra's blog- The Publication Follies of Alexandra Shostak. I received a personalized copy of Freefall by Mindi Scott, a book I have been wanting to read for a long time now. And, it came with signed bookmarks, which are always a plus! :)
And yesterday, I got the package I won on author Cindy C. Bennet's Blog. She sent me a signed copy of her book Geek Girl, which I had never heard of before but am intrigued by, several bookmarks, a large bag of Halloween Candy (it was a Halloween giveaway) and an Amazon gift card. My birthday is in December, so I'm letting myself take this as a birthday in a box. :) Definitely a great package to open!
I was definitely excited by my mailbox this week, and only wish that every week were as exciting for me.
