In My Mailbox (1)

I don't do memes all that often, but this week was a great book-acquisition week for me, so here goes!

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. It gives book bloggers the chance to share what they’ve bought/borrowed/received!

Received for review:
The Fourth Stall Part II by Chris Rylander


You might not get the joke if you missed The Fourth Stall (which was basically The Godfather, but for elementary school ;), but I was really tickled to find this in my mailbox recently. I hope to read it this week!

Thanks, Walden Pond Press!
Borrowed from library:
The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson


Reading this for the YA Book Council's February meeting. I didn't like the snippet of it I heard on Audible.com, otherwise I probably would have gotten it on audio. I never thought I'd say this, but there's just too much to read this month!
Bought:
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin


I've been lusting after this for ages, especially since a lot of my blogger friends were getting the ARC last summer. It's OK though--I finally bought it, and it looks lovely!

Bought at Once Upon a Time in Montrose

The Near Witch by Victoria Schwab

I already have this on Kindle, but it's not quite the same as having the book in your hand--especially with that great eye-candy cover!

Bought at Dark Delicacies in Burbank (ever-so-slightly not-family-friendly website ;)

Never Sit Down in a Hoop Skirt and Other Things I Learned in Southern Belle Hell by Crickett Rumley


It was totally IndieBound support week, this week. I attended the Popcorn and YA Writers event at The Last Bookstore in L.A. and could not resist picking this up! Sounds hilarious, and I love listening to Crickett talk.
Bought for a gift:
Dancergirl by Carol M. Tanzman

I've actually already read this on my Kindle--it was a good book, and better yet, my ex-cheerleader/dancer cousin is going to dig it. I'll have to get my own copy later when I have cash again!

Bought at The Last Bookstore in Los Angeles
Approved on Netgalley:
The Fairy Ring by Mary Losure

I'm reading another story based on this tale, so I thought I'd snag this eGalley and compare a bit.
