In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren. It’s where all participants post what new books they received in the mail, from the library, or contests they won, etc. Click the link for more info and to join in on the fun!

Sorry for the lack of editing on this one … I spent the ENTIRE day on Saturday moving my library room from one room to another, which meant moving a bedroom from one room to another. I was EXHAUSTED! 

This is also the vlog where I butcher ALL the authors’ names, as well as some book titles and series names. I think I need notes when I go to do a vlog. AND, for some reason the voices aren’t matching up. I think it happens when I get overly excited about my books. Yeah.

Anyways … huge thanks to Lisa, Michele, Raincoast Books, and St. Martin’s Press!

 Since I’m in the midst of the Olympic Readathon AND participating in Sarah’s Summer Mini-Readathon today, no vlog! I would have loved to make one, but I’ve been working on a special post and it’s taking up all my time when I’m NOT reading. So, here’s what I got! 

FOR REVIEW

The Scent of Rain, by Kristin Billerbeck (Thank you, Booksneeze!)
Through to You, by Emily Hainsworth (Thank you, HarperCollins Canada!)

Remember last week when I said I’d be putting myself on a book-buying ban? Well that didn’t happen! Maybe next week. Great books this week! I admit, I’m not as crazy as I usually am in this vlog — embarrassment from recording when hubs was home AND I was crazy exhausted from staying up way too late the night before reading. This is my tired face.
