In My Mailbox (15) aka SUPERHUGEFABYAY!

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren, who is supa fly.

o hai guise.

I hope everyone had a safe and happy New Year's Eve/Day!

I haven't done an IMM for a couple weeks, but this one totally makes up for it, I think. I kind of went insane on book-buying, what with my gift cards and the fact that my husband is awesome and took me to Books-A-Million and Half Price Books today. (Yes, he's kind of an enabler, he rocks my face off, AND is easy on the eyes. I know how to pick 'em, folks.)

Also, I got a super especially awesome surprise in the mail. Jamie from The Perpetual Page Turner was AMAZING enough to pick me up a signed edition of Vampire Academy from the Richelle Mead signing she went to earlier this month! OMG! You guys! Richelle Mead WROTE MY NAME. Sure, 40% of the American population is also probably named Jen, BUT SHE WAS TALKING ABOUT ME! So thank you, thank you, thank you a bajillion times, Jamie. You are awesome and I heart you.

Without further delay, here goes. This may take awhile.

So yeah. Wow. EPIC WEEK FOR THIS CHICK. Perhaps I'll find time to read each of these in the next twenty years. But don't worry, I'm still hard at work on my petition for an extra weekend day devoted to ONLY reading and blogging. I'll keep you guys posted ;)

HAPPY 2011, YOU GUYS! I love every single one of my readers, followers, friends, ALL OF YOU.


  1. I need like a bajillion extra days for reading and blogging. I would like that to be my full time job. Please make this happen.

    Ahem, anyway, awesome haul this week. I'm very impressed by your book buying skills, as always!

  2. Wow... That is a LOT of books. I'm so jealous of your signed Vampire Academy, and I've been wanting to read Please Ignore Vera Dietz for a while now.
    Awesome mailbox! Happy reading :D

  3. Wow that's a great haul of awesome books! And that's great that you received a signed Vampire Academy.
    Enjoy your books & happy reading!

  4. Wow great books! I can't wait to read Fall for Anything and XVI. I haven't gotten into the Vampire Academy series yet, but I really want too. Happy Reading. :)

  5. Oh my god, jealousy alert. xD I love half of the books you bought, and I want to read the other half! >< AND A SIGNED VA?! Jealoussss. :P

    Happy reading! :)

  6. OH MY WORD BOOKSPLOSION 2011, JEN!!! MORE EXCLAMATION POINTS!!! That is some serious bookage!

    So glad you got so many goodies! And OMG I've only read 2 of those books. #fail. I really loved the writing in The Sky is Everywhere, and Jandy Nelson is an instant-purchase for me from here on out. And since I'm all Courtney Summers fangirly of course I've read that one. =)

    I'm most looking forward to reading your thoughts on Intertwined. I read Melissa Walker's Cover Stories post on it and I was extremely intrigued by the premise.

  7. Your haul is huuuuge! So many pretty covers and intiguing books. I really want to read Once A Witch. I hope you ave many happy hours of reading these! :)

  8. This is me being extremely jealous.

  9. Oh my gosh! You are so lucky! I'm VERY jealous right now! :)

  10. Happy 2011, Jen!

    I'm jealous of your awesome IMM this week. You got so many wonderful books. I'm still patiently waiting for my copy of The Lost Saint to finally arrive. Happy reading! :D

  11. That is quite epic! and I totally know what you mean about Richelle Mead writing your name - I felt the same way when I got my signed copy :-)

  12. Jealousy alert is an understatement! That's fantastic. I wish Richelle Mead would write my name! A lot of those I've read and loved, and pretty much all the rest I want - especially MATCHED and THE SKY IS EVERYWHERE! Happy reading!

    My IMM:

  13. I'm extremely proud of this haul. I want Fall For Anything and the hardcover of Once A Witch. Also, I know you've already finished and loved ANNA, so I can't wait to hear what you think of it.

  14. Wow, I want so many of those books. Can't wait to see what you think about them. You definitely made out like a book bandit this week.
    Happy Reading! :D

  15. I love that your husband is an enabler! I need to find me one of those, someday soon.

    So many awesome books- I know we talked about this on Twitter but I haven't read ANNA yet, and I can't wait.

    I also definitely need to read MATCHED soon- especially since I've heard it's kind of similar to DELIRIUM.

    Here's what's in my mailbox this week!

  16. Daaaang girl. You got some FREAKING awesome books. I was so scared that VA was going to get lost in the mail. I got delivery confirmation on that shiiite. I would have hunted down every hand that touched that and told them that they had better find this SIGNED copy for my super awesome friend or else...

  17. Wow. I adore the V.A signed book!

    I loved Cate Tiernan's Sweep series :-) I bought the first two books on B&N special clearance 1.99 each. Then I couldn't wait to be shipped to again so I *swept* the whole friggin' area looking for the rest of them. My total at the bookstores wasn't pretty because of the # of books there are, but I LOVED them.

    What a total fab haul!

    Fab Reading!

  18. This is a whole lot of books you have there! And the signed copy is fantastic. Enjoy them all, there are some fantastic titles in there.

  19. Holy craparoo, you are outta control. HOWEVER, I love many of those titles so you have my full support. Let me talk to you hubby--enablers unite!

  20. Wow, you must be one very happy Jen at the minute! SIGNED Vampire Academy? I can't even look at you right now I'm that jealous! ;)

  21. WOW...what a collection! Enjoy the reading. And please let me know what you think of my GHOST HUNTRESS books. Hope you can't put them down!

    All the best,
    Marley = )

  22. Oooo French Kiss. I keep hearing the best things about that book! Enjoy!

    PS, LOVE your blog :)

  23. I totally want to sign your petition for an extra day off a week to just READ. I feel like I will never get through all the books I own, yet I keep buying more! LOL
