IMM [46] ALA 2012 {Round Up} Edition

 This meme is hosted by The Story Siren. For all the deets click HERE.
In My Mailbox is a weekly feature that allows blogs to share what great book related things they got in the mail. DISCLAIMER: All ARCs are provided to me in exchange for a review, or as a giveaway prize. All tour books & borrowed books are provided out of love and blogging friendship. Finally, I in no way use this feature to brag or to make fellow bloggers feel bad. I acquire books & loot the honest way. This feature is only to share my love of books & to get the word out about them.

If you've read my blog, or Tweets, you'll know that I attended ALA last week. BTW: It was an incredible weekened. I've never experienced something like that before!

After going through all of my books, I decided to share them in the IMM post this week. I tried to behave, so I only brought home a total of 32 books. Pretty darn good, right?

<--- Anyway, I have them all in bags [the ones pictured] for the time being. There's no real order to them. One day, soon, I'm going to organize them. Hardy-har-har!

Are any of these books on your TBR lists?!

With that, I'll leave you with the awesome swag that came with the Carnival of Souls signing. Everyone got a signed mask, and a t-shirt to go with the book.

ALA ---> Carnival of Souls ---> Melissa Marr ---> signing swag


  1. Wow so many books! And, OMG 'Carnival of souls'!!! and lots of signed things! I really liked 'Second Chance Summer' and I have 'Cinder', but I haven't read it yet.

  2. HOLY COW!! ALA was good to you :) I see so many good books on that list I don't even know what to comment on!

    Come see the books I got this week in my Week in Review!

  3. What a great group of books! I loved following your tweets and am sure it was a well desired trip for you :-). I can't wait to read Scarlet so I'll keep an eye out for your review later :-)

  4. Wow! That's so awesome! I have always wanted to go to ALA...maybe one day...

    I am most looking forward to reading Origin. I hope you enjoy reading those! I'm a new follower via GFC! If you can, please check out my haul here: My Mailbox
