In My Mailbox (#14)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren and inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie. The idea behind IMM is not only to put new books on our radars but also to encourage blogger interaction. IMM explores the weekly contents of our mailboxes: books bought, received, won, and borrowed, along with other goodies and swag.

Lots of great books this week, most of them from the library... oh yes, I am very quick on the draw when it comes to snagging new releases at the library; I'm that bookish girl who will say 'Oh, excuse me' even as she dives over your head or ducks between your legs to grab that special book you're scanning for from the shelves a second before you notice it.  ANYWAY,

Here's what I got: 

From the Library:

@ Amber-- I just finished Luminous, and absolutely loved it! It was such a different read, unlike anything I've ever read before. Just wanted to say that ahead of time, since I won't be posting the review for a while-- the book doesn't come out until late June. :)
