In My Mailbox (10)

6:00 PM

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren where we share any new books or goodies we bought, received, borrowed, etc. during the week.

I didn't do an IMM post last week, so this week's will be the books I got within the past two weeks and will follow a slightly didn't format than I usually do.

So, once the Teen Read Awards concluded last Saturday night after a real fun time celebrating and really just having one big book party, everyone received some TRA swag before they left in these cute blue bags!

But what was inside mine? Well...

Books received in TRA's Swag Bag:
  • Hearts at Stake (The Drake Chronicles #1) by Alyxandra Harvey
  • The Knife of Never Letting Go (Chaos Walking #1) by Patrick Ness
  • Boys, Bears, and a Serious Pair of Hiking Boots by Abby McDonald
  • ARC of Blink & Caution by Tim Wynne-Jones
  • Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (HP #7) 
There was also Alyssa Reid's (one of the performers that night) If You Are EP, a Pretty Little Liars lip balm and a pack of Stride gum. This is what I received for my swag but my sister's is slightly different, so I'm thinking everyone's is slightly varied.

I also won some stuff too that night!

Won at TRA's:
  • The Maze Runner (Maze Runner #1) by James Dashner (signed)
During the night, they threw some Hunger Games t-shirts into the crowd and I was able to snatch- I mean, catch- one! There's also a TRA bracelet they handed to us when we walked in and the red VA key-chain is from earlier in the day during the Indigo signings

And I also got some other books that I was so excited to get my hands on!

  • ARC of Torment (Fallen #2) by Lauren Kate (won from Bookurious)
  • Personal Demons (Personal Demons #1) by Lisa Desrochers  
I was so happy when I heard that my copy of Personal Demons had arrived in store! I had to order it because I couldn't find it in stores anywhere! (It figures that after I placed my order, it finally started to creep into more and more stores....) 

So, that's everything. I don't think I'll be getting quite so many books in awhile, lol. 

What about YOU? Any new reads/find this week?

Happy Reading!

  4. Wow! After reading all of your posts about the Indigo Teen Read Awards, I want to go to them! Ha ha. It sounds like an absolutely awesome experience.

    The Hunger Games t-shirt is super cool. I also love The Maze Runner - I cannot wait for the next in the series.

  5. The swag bags were definitely a sweet surprise and I've already worn my HG t-shirt a few times! I just started reading The Maze Runner and so far, it's really good! :)

  6. Where in Italy did you go? Lol, that trip was when I was about 12 and yes, I was very shocked with that beach incident. The weather was so hot and we were just searching for any beach so we could go swimming and cool off. Apparently the Italians are a little more lax that way though... :D
