In My Mailbox (10)
Whenever I travel, I use it as an excuse to buy a book "for the plane" or, halfway through to keep myself sustained. Because of this, I am usually broke. I also am visited by my Travel Fairy who brings me lots of books and it overall makes for a lovely time. :) In bigger news, I received my FIRST EVER unsolicited ARC. Macmillan just sent it to me, and it made my life! I haven't requested any ARCs yet because I don't feel like my blog has a big enough audience yet or that I've been blogging for long enough, so I'm going to wait a long time. I'm actually excited that they decided to send one to me because that means that (a) my blog is good enough for them to consider watching (b) they must like my reviews and (c) it's exciting to get a book. I'm going to finish my little spiel and show y'all the goods:
Thanks Macmillan! You rocked my world with this ARC!Given: Downpour by Kat RichardsonGreywalker by Kat RichardsonThanks to Kat! You rock and I love being your minion! :) Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte*Sense & Sensibility by Jane AustenThanks to the "Travel Fairy"! Entwined by Heather DixonThanks to the "Travel Fairy"! Die for Me by Amy PlumWhat Happened to GoodbyeThanks to the "Travel Fairy"! Bought: Haunting Violet by Alyxandra HarveyThe Gathering by Kelley Armstrong The Nine Lives of Chloe King by Liz BraswellProm Nights from Hell by Stephanie Meyer, Meg Cabot, Lauren Myracle, Kim Harrison, and Michele JaffeWordpress is being stubborn and not allowing me to center it, or do a number of things, so this might be kind of annoying to y'all. I'm sorry, but Wordpress can be really funky (so stop it, Wordpress!). Anyways, I got some great books this week and I hope y'all did too! I also got some super-great swag from Anastasia from The Book Mermaid of Firelight by Sophie Jordan. Thanks, Anastasia!I thought I'd let y'all know about some great interviews coming up on the blog.Next week, Jennifer Echols will be coming by the blog for an interview. She's the fabulous author of the magnificent Love Story which is by far my favorite of her books. They're amazing, so that's saying something. She writes romantic comedies (Endless Summer, anyone? Major Crush ring a bell?) and wonderful romantic dramas (Going Too Far and Forget You) and now, her new romantic drama, Love Story. I hope you're all excited!Jessica Lee Anderson's new novel, Calli, is coming out in September and she has graciously agreed to an interview or guest post at the beginning of August. Which one would you rather see? Answer in the comments! Plus, she generously offered one advance reader copy of Calli to one of you guys. Keep your eyes peeled for that interview/guest post/giveaway! You can check out my review here.Happy reading!Grace*Honestly, I think it's kind of ridiculous that they had to put "Bella and Edward's Favorite Book!" on the front of Wuthering Heights. It's a great classic! I get the appeal of seducing the reluctant reader, and I like Twilight well enough, but that seems a little over-the-top. I like the new covers though. And I looked in the back, and they have "What Catherine and Heathcliff Facebook Pages Would Have Been Like!" Ridiculous! Strange, but I do like the book....
