Well, last week's box might have been quiet, but this week certainly wasn't!
The Vanishing Game
by Kate Kae Myers
This counts toward the Debut Authors Challenge. I'm participating in that for the first time and really enjoying it.
Then, I got invited to a charity book sale. I went, but I wasn't all that optimistic. I was picturing dusty old Readers Digest Condensed Books.
It was hard to control myself. I must have been carrying around twenty books.I got a couple things that I'd already read to give to friends (Divergent, Shatter Me, etc.)
For me, I got six hardcovers for $20
Fever by Lauren DeStefano
Rivals by Daisy Whitney
Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood
Life Eternal by Yvonne Woon
Imaginary Girls by Nova Ren Suma
Finally, three ARCs:
Team Human by Justine Larbalestier and Sarah Rees Brennan
Gilt by Katherine Longshore (also a debut author!)
The Lost Code by Kevin Emerson
Whew. I hope you made it this far, because you have got to enter my Hunger Games trivia giveaway! My friend Shanan from BookAddict and I are joining forces. Win a great swag package in celebration of the movie's release!

Just checked out your mailbox too!Delete
AHHH! Gilt! hahaha 6 books for $20 is incredible!!! And hardcovers too. Thats AMAZING!!! I'd have gone nuts! hehe I can actually afford those prices hehe Great haul this wk! :)ReplyDelete
I know. I was so excited, I can't even tell you. All the good stuff was YA and most of the people shopping had no idea how good it was. So happy I can tell you guys and you understand :)Delete
Great mailbox! You found some awesome steals this week!! (I did too!) The Vanishing Game is on my TBR list. I hope you like it! Happy reading!ReplyDelete
Check out my IMM for the week: http://adreamwithindream.blogspot.com/2012/03/in-my-mailbox-226-33.html
Wow -- you buy even more books than I do!Delete
Thanks for making me feel less guilty :)
Great haul! I loved Graffiti Moon and I have been wanting to read Imaginary Girls forever. I also want to read Fever sometime and Born Wicked seems to be eveery where. It was peaked my curiosity.ReplyDelete
You too! So jealous about Grave Mercy!Delete
You're so lucky that you got all those books for 20 dollars! I really want to read Fever and Born Wicked! The rest of the books look great, too. I wish that my town did more book sales, but my town in general is about as enthusiastic about books as a five-year-old would be about vegetables. I'm pretty sure I have enough excitement about books for half the town. ;)ReplyDelete
Oh, that is sad to hear! What would we do without other book lovers to talk to??Delete
I loved Born Wicked! I want to read Fever one day. And The Vanishing Game sounds interesting. Great haul this week!ReplyDelete
Very excited about Born Wicked. I've heard a lot of good things about it.Delete
I've had Vanishing Game since it came out but haven't gotten to it yet but I've heard really good things about it. That's a really good haul for $20, especially hardcover!ReplyDelete
Vanishing Game was interesting. The end was a HUGE twist. And no cliffhanger!Delete
That is so fabulous! I love getting new books to read - it totally makes my day! I'm looking forward to your reviews when you've read them.ReplyDelete
Thanks so much for stopping by :)
I go to my local charity book sale each year too. Sometimes you get lucky.ReplyDelete
I know -- sometimes it's nothing special, but other times it's SO exciting.Delete
I got Fever today at the library. I'm going to start reading it soon after I finish reading Wings of the Wicked.ReplyDelete
Are you enjoying Wings of the Wicked? I thought that book really upped the stakes and kept me interested!Delete
I finished it! Overall, I did enjoy it but I thought the parts where Ellie was trying to have a normal life was a bit slow. The ending took my breath away. I mean WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN TO WILL?!?!? I am looking forward to reading the final book because things are getting complicated and Ellie needs the Gabriel part of her more than ever now.Delete
Wow, that was some awesome charity sale!! You scored bigtime!! Enjoy all the lovely books!ReplyDelete
Thanks! Off to check out your mailbox now!Delete
OMG, Fever! I read and loved it some much! Graffiti Moon..Born Wicked..Imaginary Girls...*faints*ReplyDelete
Great haul Jen, so jelousy for the charity book sale* looks around for something similar*
I'm really looking forward to Fever.Delete
You got some amazing books this week too!!
TAG! You are IT!ReplyDelete
You are so kind -- I'm going to come say thanks on your blog and link to my two tag posts!Delete
Awesome haul!! I never find anything that great when I'm hunting for used books. Though truthfully, I don't go hunting for used books as often as maybe I should. Still, great prices! Happy reading, friend! <3ReplyDelete
Awesome. Mailbox. I mean, 6 harcovers for $20!?! Wow. I so wish I could have attended! But then again, I might end up buying everything, so yeah... :P Great books! It looks like you got almost all the books I've been drooling over!ReplyDelete
I definitely need to read Born Wicked. That book just sounds so awesome. I have only read a few books with witches but I am sure I will love this one.ReplyDelete
Wow 50 comments.. seriously, what's your secret? lolReplyDelete
Must be my sparkling personality. Though half of them are me commenting back :)Delete
even if half are your comments, people still comment back afterwards.. u have some loyal readers :)Delete
Awesome haul! Sounds like my kind of charity book sale!!! FYI, I'm going to be co-hosting/participating in a read-along of Wither and Fever that starts in the middle of the month. If you can hold off on reading Fever for that long, you should totally participate! Participants can read one or both, and there will be a giveaway at the end (most likely a gift card). I'll be posting more info on my site soon!ReplyDelete
And sorry I'm just now getting round to your IMM - I had a pretty busy weekend!
Oooh. I read Wither over the summer. Tempted to skim that first. I'm hopping over to your blog to check it out!Delete
I don't have any info up on my blog yet, but I'm hoping to have a little teaser post up soon!Delete
