In My Mailbox is a meme hosted by The Story Siren, which allows bloggers to share what books they’ve received in the past week. They can be from stores, contests, tours, publishers, libraries, borrowed books from friends, and the list goeson! It's just a way of highlighting the books you received in the past week and making sure they're featured on the blog.
This week is a special Christmas and birthday edition including last week's haul because I didn't get around to posting an IMM over the Christmas weekend!
I hope you had a good Christmas, as I did, and that you'll have a good New Year as well! I received a LOT of books I'm really excited for both as Christmas gifts and as birthday gifts (I'm a Christmas baby - and just turned 21!)
The Christmas/birthday haul:
- Dark Passage (Dark Mirror #2) by M.J. Putney
- Touch of Frost (Mythos Academy #1) by Jennifer Estep
- Anna Dressed in Blood (Anna #1) by Kendare Blake
- Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
- Shattered Souls by Mary Lindsey
- Vampire Academy boxed set (Vampire Academy #1-4) by Richelle Mead
- Winter Town by Stephen Emond
- Ward Against Death (Chronicles of a Reluctant Necromancer #1) by Melanie Card

- Epic Fail by Claire LaZebnik
All of the above were received from family as gifts :)
- Sweet Venom by Tera Lynn Childs (gifted for the book blogger exchange from Michele @ Just a Lil Lost! Thank you!)
- The Hunger Games beading - made by my little sister for me! Those are all teeny, tiny little beads.
- Pride & Prejudice Kate Spade book clutch - It isn't a REAL book, but it's too bookish not to show off! Also a gift from my family :) It opens up and has tons of space inside!
- COLLECTOR'S EDITION: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (gift from my little sister)
- Imperfect Justice: Prosecuting Casey Anthony by Jeff Ashton (another gift, this one from my papa; I'm really interested in the legal field and have been following this case for years so this was a great surprise. Because I don't ALWAYS read YA ;) haha!)
