In My Mailbox: Happy New Year!

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi, The Story Siren, where bloggers post the books (and bookish things) they've somehow received (bought, borrowed, were sent, stole, etc) for that week.

I didn't do an IMM post last week as it was Christmas, so I decided to combine the two weeks into one GIANT post :)

My husband gave me for Christmas:
-The Hunger Games Companion: The Unauthorized Guide to the Series by Lois H. Gresh
-2 bookish tee-shirts from

I downloaded from Kindle for 99 cents each:
-The Poison Diaries by Maryrose Wood
-Vesper by Jeff Sampson

My sister loaned me:
-The Maze Runner by James Dasher

I was sent:
-Neversink by Barry Wolverton (thank you Danielle, of There's a Book)
-Doglands by Tim Willocks (thank you, Random Buzzers)

I borrowed from the library:
-Because of Mr. Terupt by Rob Buyea
-Clementine and the Family Meeting by Sara Pennypacker
-The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan
-Frog and Friends by Eve Bunting

What was in your mailbox?

  8. Sweet! I got some good $0.99 Kindle deals this week too! <3

  9. Is the Companion any good? You'll have to let us know! I have the second POISON DIARIES at my bedside ready to read. Oh, VESPER is that cheap? Might have to grab! I snagged EXILED from that sale. I want to read MR. TERUPT one day. Hear it's great! And, oh, love Rick Riordan!! Great reads :)

  10. Oh My Gosh - those T-shirts are absolutely adorable!! I loved the Poison Diaries, I want to get may hands on the sequel of it sometime soon :) Enjoy your great haul!

    My IMM

  11. I immediately showed my husband the book design from your threadless shirts - he makes shirts too! This would give him some ideas for possible design too. You have quite an awesome loot here. I've read (and reviewed) The Poison Diaries several months back, you might want to visit our archive in case you want to have some ideas about the book.

    Here's my IMM for the week:

    Have a Happy New Year, Amanda!
