In My Mailbox ( 2 )

In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren!
Okay, so I'm not so good at doing this on the actual day that I want to do it, but here it is, anyway!
I didn't buy anything this week, but I got a bunch of goodies at the library!



Nevermore by Kelly Creagh.  One my friends from Goodreads, who also got me to read The Summer of Skinny Dipping kept ranting about this book, so I ordered it right away.
The Running Dream by Wendelin Van Draanen.  I don't know what made me order this book.  I saw it on The Story Siren's IMM and decided to request it.  I'm pretty excited about reading it!
Psych Major Syndrome by Alicia Thompson.  When I'm really bored, I surf through other blogs to pick random books to read, and I saw this.  I love psych things, so I thought this would be good.  I'm currently reading it and it's awesome so far!
For Keeps by Natasha Friend.  I started reading this book in June, but I didn't finish it.  I honestly have no idea why I didn't finish it!  I still remember little parts of it and it's driving me nuts that I didn't finish it!  So I figured I'd try it again.
The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson.  I actually owned this book.  I sold it because I couldn't get into it the day I started reading it.  But now I see so much positive feedback on it that I just have no other choice but to give it another chance!
Life, After by Sarah Darer Littman.  This author is awesome.  I read Purge last week and loved it.  She has another book coming out soon and it's part of the Contemps Challenge, which I am participating in.  I'm excited to read it!
Choker by Elizabeth Woods.  Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh!  I actually finished this book yesterday and I loved it.  So good.  Must read.
How to Kill a Rock Star by Tiffanie Debartolo.  This was another book I saw on a blog.  They actually featured little excerpts and I liked them, so I got it out.

Last but not least, I got an awesome surprise when I opened Dirty Little Secrets to read on Wednesday. 


Yes!  There's an autograph from the author to all the Pittsburgh library readers.  It's just too awesome not to share!
Okay, so that's it!  I shall be back next week with more exciting books.  What have you guys gotten recently that you're excited about?  Have a good day!

  1. All those pretty covers... and quite a few are on my wish list... so congrats on your great haul. :) And I love that autograph! I've never thought to see if any of the library books were autographed.

  6. @melannie skoobI know! I was so excited when I saw it.
    Oh man, Choker was awesome. I wanted to write a review but I don't think I can even put into words how awesome I thought it was.
    I'm reading Nevermore now!
