In My Mailbox (6/1 - 6/6)

I had a great week this week with IMM! :) So many exciting books, and I even met an author today. More about that in my comments on one of these books :)

The Waters and the Wild by Francesca Lia Block

Thanks to The Shady Glade for hosting the contest that I won this from. Though my cover isn't as pretty since it's an ARC, I'm still really excited about this one. I remember reading Francesca Lia Block's other books 3 or 4 years ago, so I'm excited to see how this one is.

Love and Other Four-Letter Words by Carolyn Mackler

I liked The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things by the same author, so I'm hoping that I will like this one just as well! I think just about everyone else has already read her books, so I'm probably a bit behind. Oh well!

Ghostgirl by Tonya Hurley

I'm excited for this series :) Looks interesting! The book is really heavy w
ith a thick cover and a somewhat odd shape, I thought. The cover is pretty neat though.

Ghostgirl: Homecoming by Tonya Hurley

Sequel to
Ghostgirl. As I said before, I'm excited! :D

Identical by Ellen Hopkins

It took me fore
ver to get this one (and I STILL don't own and haven't read Glass..) but I've started reading it and I'm glad I got it! It's also signed by Ellen Hopkins, who I met today at a book signing here in Reno. She actually lives around here, which I think is pretty cool. No nifty pictures or anything of the sort to share with you guys, though. Sorry!

Bad Girls Don't Die by Katie Alender

Yay! I've really wanted to read this one after hearing great things from people, and now I finally have a copy. Thanks to Shalonda's Blog for hosting the contest for this :)
