In My Mailbox (23)

In My Mailbox, started by Kristi from The Story Siren is an awesome weekly meme to post what books we’ve received this week; whether it was sent for review from a publisher, purchased at a book store, borrowed from the library, or won from a giveaway.

After a fabulous week traveling to sunny Arizona for work AND celebrating my 23rd birthday, I was excited to come home on Friday to a package in the mail and two approvals for books I’m really looking forward to reading.

For Review

Life After College by Jenny Blake: I am SO looking forward to this book, written by a friend whom I’ve gotten to know through Twitter and her blog.   And I so badly need this book, as I am fresh out of college and definitely trying to find my place in the real world.

From NetGalley

The Last Little Blue Envelope by Maureen Johnson: I will probably re-read 13 Little Blue Envelopes before I read this one, but I loved the first book when I read it years ago, and am excited to hear what happens next!

From Galley Grab

Invincible Summer by Hannah Moskowitz: I was originally drawn to this book because of the beautiful cover (um, hello body I wish I had!) but I’m also looking forward to reading it because it’s written from a male perspective- something I haven’t seen much of in YA!

And just for fun…a picture from my birthday with my favorite cocktail of the moment: sangria!

What’s in your mailbox today?

  1. Great books, Jess! Invincible Summer is definitely one I’m excited about. Life After College seems really interesting. I’ll have to check that out.

    Anyway, hope you enjoy! And Happy Birthday! 🙂

      @Kelly, I believe once you get the newsletter, you just click on titles of books and then it allows you to download them.

  2. Your hair looks so cute! I love the bangs!
    Sangria is yummmmy, and I like to think it’s good for you too… I mean, fruit?! Right?

  3. Ha, cool picture. I loooooove cocktails! And netgalley is awesome. Wish I could download it aswell, but I haven’t read one single Maureen Johnson novel so far. Should really catch up, right?
    My IMM can be found here

  4. I received The Last Little Blue Envelope this week too and can’t wait to get into it. Invincible Summer sounds interesting being from a male’s perspective and all. Here is my IMM.

  5. I think I kinda get GalleyGrab after rereading the title page, but I haven’t gotten a newsletter either and was apparently approved, so I guess I’ll just wait and see what happens :P.

    I can’t wait to read The Last Little Blue Envelope, but I want to reread it too. I don’t even know how long ago I read that book, and I lent it to a friend and never got it back :(.

  6. I’ve never read anything by Maureen Johnson (although I do follow her on Twitter, but that doesn’t count, right?) and I really need to change that. Should I start with 13 Little Blue Envelopes?

  7. I read The Last Little Blue Envelope last week, and I have to say it was fabulous- even better than the original, in my opinion. Invincible Summer looks great as well so I can’t wait to see your review for it! Oh, and happy belated birthday! 🙂
