In My Mailbox Vlog - (5/8/11)

In My Mailbox is a meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. It is a list of any of the books you may have received in the past week from bookstores, libraries, authors/publishers, trades, etc.

This is the longest IMM I think I've ever done. I apology for the length, but I did cut it down from 20 minutes...that being said, I still lapse into saying um, awesome, really good, so excited, some more awesomes, and other repetitive adjectives that basically amount to good and/or great. I read a lot, but apparently my vocabulary is quite limited :(

The Map of Time (ARC) by Felix J. Palma (with The Time Machine by H.G. Wells)
Spellbinder by Helen Stringer
The Midnight Gate by Helen Stringer

Wow Nikki, you've had tons of books in the last couple of weeks! I so love that the other author has left all those little note in the book. Too cute! I was shocked at how small Memento Nora was too. LOL

Yay A Need So Beautiful arrived! Woo hoo! That's awesome Hannah wrote in it :)
I got The Map of Time too and can't wait to read it!
I don't know that I've heard of Shatter Me yet, or maybe I forgot cause it doesn't have a cover yet and so I just don't have anything to help me remember.
I did read your post about your vacation but I'm thinking I didn't comment... I'll just say here that my dad and yours might just get along... it sucks when you want to see something but one person is bored so that cuts it short. But at least you got to go and it looked so fun! My BFF now lives there (near the park, not IN it, though that would be AWESOME) so if I can strike it rich or something and go I have a place to stay, so I would just have to pay to get in. Someday...

Jealous of your signed CoFA! I am also jealous that you got to go to such a cool event. An awesome mailbox for you--enjoy! :)

Here is my mailbox!

Ooo great books! I'm looking forward to seeing what you think of Love Story! I loved Going Too Far, but I wasn't a huge fan of Forget You. Enjoy all your new awesome books!
