In My Mailbox Week 6

First of all, I'd like to thank everyone who showed their support yesterday when I did the cover reveal for my book, Blue Sky Days. You guys are awesome, and I appreciate you more than you know. I've posted my book on GoodReads, and was accepted yesterday as a GoodReads author, so now people who are interested can start marking the book to-read! I'm so excited, I could burst! I've also started a Facebook page for the book, besides my actual writer's page. Some links to check out:

In My Mailbox is weekly meme hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren.  The idea is to share books you've acquired during the week, whether you've won them, bought them, picked them up at the library, received them for review, whatever.  It's a great way to bring attention to books and authors and share the love!  
 




This week, I waited anxiously every day to get something in the mail. I'm expecting about half a dozen things, but only got one! Not to downplay the one thing I got because I was super excited. It's just that I'm not used to getting mail, and in the last couple of months, I've actually started winning things (a first!) and I've been getting mail - very exciting for someone who works all the time and has little else to excite her lol. 
 
In my mailbox:
So, the one super cool thing I got in the mail this week was 3 signed bookmarks and a postcard from Kiki Hamilton, author of The Faerie Ring, which comes out September 27th. Anyone who's visited my blog regularly knows I'm slightly obsessed with all things faerie, so I'm really looking forward to this book. Anyway, Kiki had a blurb on her blog saying that if anyone wanted a bookmark and postcard to email her, so I did, and my little package of awesomeness arrived Thursday. I'll be keeping one of the bookmarks, giving one to my local indie bookstore, and giving one away in a future giveaway, so stay tuned for that!
 
Be sure to check out Kiki's blog, and you can read the synopsis of The Faerie Ring on GoodReads, or pre-order your copy from Amazon! Thanks so much for sending this, Kiki!

For review:
Being Human by Patricia Lynne {GoodReads || Amazon
I'm super excited to read this one; I've had the pleasure of getting to know Patricia a bit through Facebook, Twitter and our blogs, and this book sounds really good!

From the library:
Seven Year Switch by Claire Cook {GoodReads || Amazon
One day a week or two ago, I got a notification from Twitter saying that 'Claire Cook' was following me. I thought...no way, the name's a coincidence...but when I clicked the link, it was the Claire Cook, author of the book Must Love Dogs, which was turned into a movie with the oh-so-yummy John Cusack. And as if that wasn't enough, Claire 'liked' my Facebook writer page! I almost died! I've had her books on my TBR list forever, and my mum has read and loved some of her books, so after the whole Twitter/FB thing, I bumped her books to the top of my list and decided to start with Seven Year Switch because it was one my mum recommended. 
Sloppy Firsts by Megan McCafferty {GoodReads || Amazon}
Speaking of books I've had on my TBR list forever, this is another one. When I went to the library this week, I didn't intend to get anything other than Seven Year Switch, which I had on hold, but I saw this one and grabbed it.

That's what I got in my mailbox this week. What did you get?
