Huge In My Mail Box

So, I have failed emmensley on the IMM thing lately and I fell badly because I really love this meme. I think that it’s the least we can do to discuss and show off what authors and publishers are willing to send us so I’m going to try really hard to get all these books in one post as quickly as possible. Here we go, almost a months worth and only mine (Amber’s) for now as getting in both Rosmelie and Vickie’s as well might in fact make my head explode right now….lol




Sign Language by Amy Ackley – Sent for review by Author Thanks Amy!
The Catastrophic History of You & Me by Jess Rothenberg – I won this in the Early Reviewer’s section of Library Thing – thanks!
Everneath by Brodi Ashton – This was sent by my friends at HarperCollins and Balzar & Bray Thank you!
Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake – Sent by Kendare’s people just in time for her book signing a week or so back, and now it’s a great autographed copy to me! Thanks Kendare and Pals!
Just Your Average Princess by Krstina Springer – sent through The Teen Book Scene for a Blog Tour! Thanks TBS!

Second Hand Heart by Catherine Ryan Hyde – sent through Teen Book Scene for Blog Tour, thanks everyone!
Bloody Little Secrets by Karley Kirkpatrick – sent for a review around Halloween, squee! I love Bloody books! Thanks K.K.!


This isn’t including all the eBook reviews MMSAI has accepted over the past month thathave been passed out between my reviewers and myself, or nothing any of the cool swag we’ve gotten but will be handing out soon (1 Year Blogaversary is in Dec you know!)

I can’t forget the people at Fox Publicity that contacted me to review and compare the movie Water For Elephants to the book, on the blog. I know, movies not out yet…shame. Well it’s a good thing they sent me an early reviewer copy then eh? Watch for this review/comparison soon complete with awesome prizes (movie + book) from Fox!


I think I got almost everything, oh wait….my haul from the Half Price Book Sale last weekend. So much awesome-ness! Authors like Meg Cabot, Maureen Johnson, Janet Eveanovich, Patrick Camren, Lauren Conrad, James Paterson, Simone Eckles, and many many more. Some will be apart of a Blogaversary giveaway too…apparently I bought 4 books, twice those two days! LOL.  None of these books were more then $3, most were $2 and this is only half – the rest is stuff my daughter got or will be getting for x-mas!
