In My Mailbox (22)

In My Mailbox is hosted by the blogging sensation Kristi at The Story Siren, who is even more awesome in person than she is online!

The past two weeks have been pretty fab, bookwise. I know I've been MIA but there's been a lot going on with school, plus Dark Days was last weekend, and I had an impromptu family weekend from which I just got home. It's been a good couple of weeks, IRL. School's been ridiculous and I just started OB clinicals at the hospital, which is my favorite nursing specialty so far. No, seriously. I got to watch a birth. And I cried a little bit. NURSING = AWESOME.

Also, my Wicked Lovely giveaway ends on March 31, 2011. It's international. ENTER IT WHILE YOU CAN!

Anyway, onto the part you guys actually care about...

  1. GRAVEMINDER! I'm not a Marr fangirl like you, but I think I want to give her adult book a try. Maybe I'll like it better. And Saving Francesca is one of the best books EVER so you're all set. :)

  2. Great books! I loved The Summer I Turned Pretty, Desires of the Dead, and Angelfire :) Enjoy!

  3. Ooh, I want to know what you think a Graveminder! That one sounds so good. All of Ginger's talk about The Summer I Turned Pretty on twitter had me pick it up recently. :) Hope you enjoy all your new books!

    P.S., LOVE the new blog look! Very pretty.

  4. Great haul!
    Me and the hubby bought an iMac after Christmas and LOVE it! :) I don't see me ever going back to a PC.

  5. I loved The Summer I Turned Pretty---I'm obsessed with Jenny Han. I also want to read Saving Francesca- I've heard good things about it. Enjoy all your books and your new iMac. Love it!

  6. your computer = gorgeous

    also, look at you with all those books this week! i feel a spending splurge coming on myself this spring...

  7. Oh Jen, I adore your new blog layout! Ginger really knows how to make it classy ;) Ahhh, Perfect Fifths! I've read the whole JD series except that one! I need to get on it :)

  8. Geez that's a good pile of books. And an awesome looking computer :D

  9. I'm not picking favorites or anything (who am I kidding? of course I am! lol) but you need to read The Summer I Turned Pretty FIRST!!! as soon as you're done with that test on Monday - right? Pick it up & treat yourself to the awesomeness of Jenny Han!!

    P.S. welcome to the world of mac's - you will never want to go back to a PC, ever again!

  10. I think that iMac is a bit too big to be in the mailbox but it's a fabulous get none the less! Summer I Turned Pretty is a fantastic book and you'll definitely want the second book in the series on hand to gobble up right after!

  11. Angelfire is good! Plus I'm looking forward to Desires of the Dead. Enjoy your new books and computer!

  12. Fab reads! I really want to read the Jenny Han book. I'm going to start Hex soon. I'm excited for it.
    My IMM

  13. LOVED Confessions of Georgia Nicolson series! I finally bought the last one a couple months ago shes too funny Angus is the craziest cat ever! kinda wish I had one like him XD I actually read the summer I turned pretty but I still need to buy out the next one hopefully soon I wanna know what happens anyways enjoy your reading
    as always ♥, Carol

  14. I still need to finish the Jessica Darling series. I went to my Borders that is closing and they had four of the Georgia Nicolson books but only 3,4,5, and 7. If they'd had the first two I would have bought them. Hope you're enjoying all your new books and the Mac. I really love the laptop that I have, but I'm hoping to get a desktop either before or after graduate school. Have a great week!

  15. I hope you enjoy The Summer I Turned Pretty as much as I did. So glad that Ginger recommended it so much to me.

  16. I may have LOL'd when I read "NURSING = AWESOME" because me in my 28 y/o-ness with a gaggle of friends with kids who are pro-"nursing" can't disconnect the verb from being synonymous BREASTFEEDING.

    I really hope you enjoy Saving Francesca. It was one of the first YA novels that I was reco'd and I loved it.

  17. Yay for the Mac lovin' :) And Ginger is seriously influencing us bloggers with the Summer series...I bought a copy of the first book too!

  18. Saving Francesca! That book is awesome! I actually have the review up on my blog today, lol!
