In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. I have included links to Goodreads should you want more information on the books. I usually post this on Saturdays, but got so caught up with the Bloggiesta that it totally slipped my mind. But I'm so excited about what I received in the mail this past week that I can't wait to post it! Better late than never, right? :-)
This is the mailbox goodie that I was the most excited to receive! I've been lusting after Beautiful Creatures ever since I first heard about it on various blogs. Everyone raved about it and it sounded sooooo good, but I was on a book buying ban so could only hope & pray that I would win a copy somewhere. And I did! Woo hoo! Won a copy from Tina at Fantastic Book Review, complete with swag sent from the authors! Was so excited to receive this! Tried to take a picture, but not sure if you can see everything. I received the ARC from Tina, and the swag included a BC sticker, 2 rubber wrist bands, a gorgeous bracelet with the chinese symbol for Hope, 2 BC dog tags, a photo, a Slim Jim, and some candy. I tried to include a close up of the bracelet, but it didn't turn out very well. Hope you get the general idea, as I really like it!
Picked up a copy of Gena Showalter's The Darkest Night from my library book sale. They have a cart at the entrance with books either pulled from the shelves or donated. Paperbacks are 25 cents (5 for $1!) and hardcovers are 50 cents, so I always leave with at least one book. This is book 1 of her Lords of the Underworld series, so thought I would give it a shot.
Also received three samples of Advocare Spark energy drink from Julie at My Own Little Corner of the World blog. I saw them featured over at Sheila's IMM post and mentioned that I was curious about how they tasted. so Julie was kind enough to send me some samples. Thought that was incredibly nice of her! Haven't tried them yet as I'm still getting over a bug, but looking forward to a taste test! I received grape, fruit punch and mandarin orange flavor. Thanks again Julie!
Very, very happy with my mailbox last week! Got a book I"ve been drooling over, a library bargain, and some cool samples to try! Happiness is goodies in the mail! :)
