In My Mailbox (11): The One Where Aimee Agresti Pretty Much Made My Life

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren, meant to spotlight the books we've acquired this week (via library, purchase, review, etc).

I had a great bookish mail week, guys. Look at all the pretty!


Blood Red Road - Moira Young

Shatter Me - Tahereh Mafi

Like Mandarin - Kirsten Hubbard
I loved Wanderlove so much I immediately had to go out and get her other book.

Last week I mentioned I made a ton of birthday purchases; the rest finally came in!

Take A Bow - Elizabeth Eulberg

Wanderlove - Kirsten Hubbard (read my review here!)
Loved it so much had to get my own copy

Across the Universe - Beth Revis
Loved forever, finally have my own copy.

Illuminate - Aimee Agresti

For Review
(thanks Eileen and St. Martin's Press!)
Fated - Alyson Noel
I've only read one of Alyson Noel's books and wasn't crazy about it - excited for this one!

Extra Awesome Swag
Aimee Agresti did a contest on her blog and offered a consolation prize to those who didn't win. So when I requested a signed bookmark, I mentioned in passing I'd ordered her book because it was my birthday recently.
She sent me a signed + personalized hotel key and note along with the bookmark since it was my birthday. Seriously, I about died when I opened it, because how freakin' nice is that??

Perfectly together.

Thanks so much Aimee, you're wonderful!

Yep. I'm a pretty happy reader this week.

    You've had such a wonderful week with books! Btw, happy belated birthday! It took me a while to get into Illuminate, but the author seems so sweet! I want to read both of Kirsten Hubbard's books as well. Happy reading! ^_^

    Ah, I love it when authors send surprises! I'm really intrigued by the Alyson Noel book, since the cover is kinda cool, and I didn't care for her series. (I don't even remember what it's called. Immortals? Doesn't sound right.) I'm interested to hear what you think of it. Happy reading!

    Great haul! Aimee seems like such an amazing author, I love those approachable writers who love talking with us, bloggers. :) Isn't it awesome?

    And I love the cover of Fated! So pretty!

    I wish our libraries had Blood Red Road, but no such luck. It hasn't been translated yet, so... :(

    Happy reading!

    Here's my IMM. ♥

    Happy Birthday (late!) That was very cool of Agresti! (And I absolutely adored Wanderlove as well.) It looks like you have some wonderful books coming up in your queue.

    Fated looks so, so, so good! I'm glad to see you loved Across the Universe - it's next on my TBR list, and I'm excited to finally get into it. I mean, space opera! In a space ship! Love <3. Great haul.

    Fantastic Books! Take a bow is pretty much one of the most amazing books i read so far this year! I also enjoyed AtUniverse! Have a great time reading!

    Blood Red Road is really great, it just take a little bit of getting used to, because everyone talks strangely. But once you get into it, it's really great! Shatter Me is good too, the writing style is really unique, and the author is awesome. =) I still haven't read Illuminate, but I'm planning to get around to it this month! I think that's super nice of the author to write you that note! I know I would totally freak out if an author did that for me.

    Happy reading, and I hope you had a good birthday!
