In My Mailbox (5)... in Which I Go "Gaga"

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren.

I had a pretty amazing week. I'm really excited about all the great stuff I got. AAAAND I got my first ARC! It's not a review ARC, though :) But I did win a contest over at Fallen Archangel for one of ten available ARCs of Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick. I received the "winner" email while driving to work and almost swerved off the road, I was so excited. I read Hush, Hush earlier this year, and was quite fond of it. I'm about in the middle of Crescendo right now and I can't wait to finish! Since I'll also be buying a finished copy, I'll probably not keep the ARC.

Which means....perhaps a giveaway? In the near future?

We shall see!



Anyway, onto the books I bought this week.

Bright Young Things by Anna Godbersen
Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake by Sarah MacLean
Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison
On the Bright Side, I'm Now the Girlfriend of a Sex God by Louise Rennison




OH, OH! Kelsey from The Book Scout sent me her extra copy of Hearts at Stake by Alyxandra Harvey, because she is ten kinds of cool. She also sent me some fantabulous swag, pictured (including a signed bookmark from Anastasia Hopcus. KEYSMASH OF MASSIVE PROPORTIONS! Did you not see my gushing review of Shadow Hills? No? Click HERE.)

And... this is completely non-book-related. But I also received some tickets in the mail. I may have shed a tear when I opened them, because I can't believe they're real.

Yes, ladies and gentleman, I'm going to see Lady Gaga in March 2011.

My husband bought me tickets to Lady Gaga for my birthday. He'is not quite a fan, so I'm taking my little sister, who is benefitting from my turning 26. I get minor heart palpitations just thinking about it <3 In the meantime, I'll be perfecting my raw meat dress.

So that concludes my awesome week. I can only hope next week will bring the happy like this week did.

So excited to hear what everyone else got. Have a fabulous book week!
