In My Mailbox #5

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren.

At this rate, my husband is going to have to add yet another shelf for me!

Reason #1 that my husband should never offer to take me to the flagship Half Price Books here in Dallas:  I end up with a stack of books that make my arms hurt by the time we get to the register.  Reason #2:  so does my daughter.  :)

Behold the titles I picked up over the long weekend:

The City of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau
Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta <--- I have heard the most awesome things about this author!!!
Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly (this was an ARC, which I thought was weird but also cool)
Incarceron & Sapphique by Catherine Fisher

On top of that, I had to pick up Original Sin for my Nook on Tuesday when it came out cause I was in the mood for some teenage smuttiness...I needed a light, fun read with all that's been going on lately in my personal life. 

Oh, and I can't believe I haven't mentioned this earlier, but if you haven't been downloading the free audiobooks from SYNC weekly this summer, you should definitely look into it.  I listen to them while I'm at work or in the car, and they really help pass the time.  It took me a minute to get used to listening to a book instead of music while working, but I don't find it distracting, and hey, it's helping me work on that crazy big TBR list I've got going!

On that note, Audible is also doing a promo, where when you register for the service, you get two free  audiobooks.  Since I picked up the free audiobook of Shiver through SYNC, I used one of my free credits at Audible on Linger so I can be prepared for Forever's release next week.  (Have you pre-ordered your Maggie-doodled copy yet?)

So, all together, here's my haul for the week:
The City of Ember (Books of Ember, #1)Jellicoe RoadRevolutionIncarceron (Incarceron, #1)Sapphique (Incarceron, #2)Original Sin (Personal Demons, #2)Shiver (The Wolves of Mercy Falls, #1)Linger (The Wolves of Mercy Falls, #2)

Oh, I almost forgot!  I also received signed bookmarks and a postcard from Kiki Hamilton, author of The Faerie Ring, and a signed bookmark for Daimon, the prequel to Half-Blood, by Jennifer L. Armentrout, courtesy of Mickey at I'm a Book Shark.  (And that reminds me, I need to download that for my Nook, STAT!)
