In My Mailbox (14)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme that gives bloggers a chance to share what books they've received in the last week. It's hosted by The Story Siren and you can find out more info about it here.

I just have a couple pieces for In My Mailbox this week! Check it out:

The Poison Eaters and Other Stories by Holly Black (from Simon & Schuster Canada's YA Blog)
{Goodreads | Book Depository}
Half-Blood swag (from Jennifer Armentrout)

To be honest, I'm kind of assuming that I won Poison Eaters from YA Simon Blog. I know I entered their contest, but I never got any kind of email saying I'd won it. I just came home today and BAM, there it was. Oh, no, I'm not complaining, just saying :). It looks really interesting. I haven't read any of Holly Black's stuff, but the stories seem interesting. Make sure you check it out.

And OMG I was so excited when I won that swag from Jennifer! It's so purdy! I actually won it from a random, spur-of-the-moment twitter contest that Jennifer did (you can find her on Twitter here). I can't wait until Half-Blood comes out so I can grab myself a copy to use my bookmark in :).

What did you get this week?


  1. That must have been a nice surprise to come home to :)
    Enjoy your new books

  2. Ooooh you got some epic looking goodies! Well done! x

  3. Holy shizzle, are those GUITAR PICKS!? And Holly Black, too! Lucky. :P

    Here's my IMM.

  4. I love finding unexpected parcels of books! They make my day!

    I love the bookmarks. Purple-on-black is just about my favourite colour scheme.

  5. Ooh, I loved Poison Eaters, and really like the new cover art. Congrats on the awesome win! Holly Black is one of my favorites.

  6. Seems interesting. I like Holly Black, but am a bit weary of short stories. ^__^;;

  7. Ohh, enjoy reading Poison Eaters! Sounds awesome!

  8. The Poison Eaters is such a unique title, and the cover is gorgeous.
    And are those... guitar picks for Half Blood?
    That's insane! Congrats on winning them :D

  9. Congratulations! Holly Black's books are one of my favorites. I have yet to read Poison Eaters but if it's anything like The Modern Faerie Tales (Tithe, Valiant, Ironside) then I'm sure it'd be great.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. ^_^

  11. Hi Pamela! Your Half-Blood swag is gorgeous! :) I've never had the chance to read The Poison Eaters even though I got the e-galley from S&S Galley Grab. Hope you love it!
