In My Mailbox: July 31, 2011

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren. It is a great way for bloggers to socialize and network their blogs and to share upcoming releases!
To join in all the fun, simply:
  1. Make your own IMM post! You can post about books you've bought, gotten from the library, received for review... books don't have to arrive via your mailbox.
  2. You can post weekly, every other week, or one week out of the month, it’s up to you and it doesn't have to be on Sunday.
  3. Once you have your IMM posted, go to The Story Siren on her Sunday post and add your link to the list.
  4. Comment on other bloggers IMM posts.

Good day, friends! My list is going to be short and sweet this week. These are books I have already read, but I have been on a mission. I've been slowly collecting books that I would like to have for author events in the next couple of weeks. This may not sound too difficult, but there is actually quite a few that will be within driving distance of me! I've been able to get a few of the ones I need this week, but I think I'm only about half way through my list.

Here's what I bought or bought and finally received this week:

by Maggie Stiefvater (Seeing her in Nashville today!)

Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld (No signing here, I was just happy to find a hardcover copy to match my copy of Behemoth. I'm just a little picky about that...Which is why it took me so long to get my own copy.)

The Iron King, The Iron Daughter, and The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa
I had already planned on buying my own copies of these, because it is one of my favorite series. Then I found out she will be coming through on the Ash to Nash tour and quickly bumped them up on my "have to buy" list.

I can think of at least four, if not five, books that I would love to be able to own before the Ash to Nash tour comes this way. If I can swing it, it would be a dream come true to have them all signed. It's going to be interesting to see if I can figure it out before the day gets here. We're moving this week and that has thrown a wrench in a lot of my book plans. Either way it goes, I'm going to have some fabulous pictures to post in the next couple of weeks!

Happy reading!

Nice IMM. The Iron Fey is awesome! No words. I'm going to review because I finally finished reading all of them including The Iron Knight. In love with Ash.

You've got some great stuff this week. I've read the Iron King, and I enjoyed it, the others are on my shelf, but have not been read by me. I'll get there. Good Luck with the move!

I love The Iron Fey series! I checked them out from my library, but I fell in love with it, so I've decided I have to own them. Happy reading!

I love it when I can get a whole series at one time. I hate waiting for the next books if the series turns out to be good.

I've got a signed copy of "Leviathan" I heart Scott Westerfeld :) I've also got "Linger" but wanting to re-read "Shiver" first. Looking forward to your thoughts on the Iron Series.
