IMM #14 (Christmas Edition!)

In My Mailbox was originally started by The Story Siren and it's where anyone can participate and let everyone know what they got in books, and other book related things, throughout a given time.  Anyone with a blog can join in, and you can post once a week, once a month, or whenever you choose to.

Hey Everyone!!

First IMM of 2013!!! :)

I got some amazing things over the past month that I'm very excited to share with all of you!!

I was actually planning on making a video post, however, my Macbook is currently in the shop with some difficulties (my dog chewed on the cable, which caused it to Short out ;(), but I will be hopefully getting it back next week, and then next month I'll be able to make my first video IMM!

So here's what I got over the past month!

So I did my second ever trading this month! I actually traded quite a few books! :)

So I traded:

A HUGE thank you to my blogging friend, Liz, over at Books I Think You Should Read and Yes/No Films!

  • Daughter of Smoke and Bone  by Laini Taylor

    I am SO excited to read this! I have wanted to read this one since it was released, so a big thank you to Emma!!
 From Library:

Got a start on the Audiobook challenge, by checking out these awesome titles:

  • Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
  • New Moon by Stephenie Meyer
  • Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
  • Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
  • (Not Pictured) The Help by Kathryn Stocket
Also from the library, and currently reading:


Thank you to Kanchi!


  • Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally (Had to buy this in paperback (I own it on ebook form) to add to my collection!! :)) (It was on sale at Barnes and Noble for only $5!)
  • The Luxe by Anna Godbersen (Only a $1 at the used book store!!) And in Hardcover!
  • Ruby Red  by Kerstin Gier (this was originally released in Germany, and was recommended to me by a fellow German, so  I ended up getting it on Amazon in hardcover for under $7!)


 Christmas Presents!!!

 The Edward bookmark is from my Mom!! The other Breaking Dawn bookmark is from my good friend Natalie!!  The Barnes and Noble Giftcard was a gift from a family friend, and the Taylor Swift notebook (which is super cute, and has a line from one of my favorite songs "Long Live" on it, is from  the teacher I help out! :)

Christmas Presents to myself!! haha

 Breaking Dawn part 2 Movie Poster (yay, this is going to look awesome with the others!! :)) (I told you I have a problem ;))

  1. Whooohoooo!!! Fab haul!! Congrats on all of the new goodies!!!!

    The Ramblings of a Toddler’s Mom

  2. So many great books! I love The Luxe, and the audio for Twilight is great I listened to a few chapters when I was reading it.

    1. I'm looking forward to reading and listening to them definitely!! :)

  3. WOW chica! That is a great haul! I am doing the audiobook for Smoke and Bone now. So far so good.

  4. What a great haul! I can't even begin to comment individually on all the books I want to. Ruby Red is incredible. I bought it on a whim and it was so good that the next day I went back and bought the sequel.

    Speak, Thirteen Reasons Why, and Catching Jordan are all incredible.

    And nearly every other book is one I'm dying to read/loved.

    Hope you enjoy.
