In My Mailbox (#19): The Birthday Edition

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.
I got a ton of awesome books for my birthday and from the trusty library this week, so there's no space to waste with babble. I'm jumping straight to all the bookish goodness!

What I got: 
Birthday Stuff:
