In My Mailbox 33

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme where you get to show off all the cool books you receive! This meme was inspired by Alea and memefied by Kristi.

Whew! I got a bunch of books from the past two weeks. Let's start with what I bought.

If you didn't read my post from last week, I had said I was going to the Strand Bookstore in NYC. I don't like the city but Strand has the best bargains and I make the trek for that bookstore. I seriously recommend going there at least once in your life-sure, visit the Empire State Building if you want but ANYONE who is a book-lover has to go to Strand. It's incredible. 

From Strand:
The Agency 1: A Spy in the House by Y.S. Lee
Everlasting by Angie Frazier
Crossing The Tracks by Barbara Stuber
Banished by Sophie Littlefield (this one was a surprise find)
Stolen by Lucy Christopher (not in the picture-my friend stole my copy from me, hah.)

Bought from B&N:
City of Glass by Cassandra Clare (I had bought this in the hopes of going to Cassandra Clare's signing in NYC but that plan fell flat-still, I gotz a pretty Cassie Clare book gracing my shelf!)

Stolen Borrowed from my friends:
Linger by Maggie Stiefvater  (my friend took my copy of Stolen, I took her copy of Linger. xD)
Plain Kate by Erin Bow (thanks Kari! ♥)

For tours, review, etc:
Scars by Cheryl Rainfield (provided by Teen {Book} Scene. Stay tuned for a future contest!)
Dracula, My Love by Syrie James (provided by TLC tours)
Love Sucks by Melissa Francis (from the publisher-it looks really cute!)
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins (A wonderful blogger friend sent me this treasure. You don't need to know how much I squealed when this came.)
Wake Unto Me by Lisa Cach (Another treasure that arrived in the mail!)
The Eternal Ones by Kirsten Miller (Kari luffs me-thank you again, chica.)

I was smiling nonstop for the past two weeks and now you know why! So, ladies and gents, what's in your mailbox? ;)
