In My Mailbox (38)

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.

Well, I’m back from vacation (sad face) and the only good thing about it was the two pretty packages with books waiting for me when I returned home yesterday morning. I should go away more often; I certainly came back to some treats! This was a fantastic book week.

For review

Love Story by Jennifer Echols: I haven’t read anything by Echols yet though many of you (I’m looking at you Joli!) have recommended I do so immediately. When I saw Jenniferย  herself tweet that she was giving away ARC’s for review to bloggers, I jumped at a chance to try her out! Thanks to Kari for the Twitter tip!

Endless Summer by Jennifer Echols: I was SO surprised when I opened my package from Jennifer Echols and saw that she also included ENDLESS SUMMER which included THE BOYS NEXT DOOR, as well as ENDLESS SUMMER. I was so incredibly touched by Jennifer’s kindness. And both books were signed! Thank you, Jennifer!

Won from a giveaway

The NOW Revolution by Amber Naslund and Jay Baer: I won this awesome book through a giveaway from Natalie over atย  The Suitcase Entrepreneur. As I’ve mentioned before on the blog, I’m interested in starting my own business one day and I think this book will provide some great insights.

From NetGalley

Wanderlove by Kirsten Hubbard: I could hardly believe my eyes when I saw that Hubbard’s latest WANDERLOVE was available on NetGalley for immediate download. You better believe I jumped on that!

The Whole Story of Half a Girl by Veera Hiranandani: Another available for immediate download! This is about a girl of mixed heritage who switches from private school to public school after her father loses his job; sounds super interesting to me! Can’t wait to see how she deals with it all.

From the library:

Lies That Chelsea Handler Told Me by Chelsea’s family, friends and other victims: I actually got this book last week when it was too late to include in my IMM, but I read it over vacation. Review coming soon!

What’s in your mailbox today?

  1. I’ve never read anything by Echols other than Love Story. It was good, but I hear her other books are even better, so I’m eager to check them out. Can’t wait to see what you think about them all. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wanderlove looks so good! I can’t wait to read it. The last time I looked at Netgalley there were several “Read Now” books that looked great. Eek. Doesn’t do well for my list of books to read ๐Ÿ˜‰


  2. I’m so happy for you that you received Love Story (signed!) and Endless Summer – what a treat to come home to. I really would have loaned mine to you if you would have wanted ๐Ÿ™‚

    And wasn’t it pretty cool that so many books have the Read Now option – I got Wanderlove too. Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley is also available if you were interested in that one.

    Enjoy your books! Thanks for the shout out and for stopping by my blog.

  3. You came back from vacation to some awesome books girl! I still need to read Endless Summer… maybe I should do that before summer (sniff) ends? ๐Ÿ™

  4. OMG.. LOOOOOOOOVE Jennifer Echols. She is definitely one of my favorite YA contemp authors. Endless Summer is AMAZING! I hope you read it soon ๐Ÿ™‚ and get to meet Adam!! gahhhhh I heart that boy SO MUCH. Enjoy Jess!

  5. Love Story was my first Jennifer Echols book too. And yeah, I own a lovely author signed copy, too!
    And I know there hasn’t been very many positive reviews about it lately, but I loved it. It’s older YA, which is always a plus for me, and I thought the romance was so darn hot! I loved it.

  6. Ooh, I’ll have to check out Wanderlove on Netgalley.. (tho I got a TON of books from them this week already that I have to get through!)

    Good luck on starting your own business! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve always wanted to as well.. might have to check that book out!

    Here’s my IMM!

  7. I (Kaitlin) got those two from NetGalley too! I thought they looked really good! And I still need to read Chelsea Handler’s latest book. I love her!

  8. I got the new Chelsea Handler when it first came out. I didn’t think it was as funny as her previous books, but it still was good! Enjoy your reads!

  9. Ooh, I always love Jennifer Echols’ books so I hope you enjoy Love Story and Endless Summer. Wanderlove looks amazing as well. Happy reading! ๐Ÿ™‚
