In My Mailbox is a weekly meme inspired by Alea and hosted by Kristi. Check out Kristi's post to see what others got in terms of books this week!
I'm kind of dreading putting up what I got in these past two weeks, because...
White Cat by Holly Black + swag - this came with some KICKASS swag, which I unfortunately had to leave behind in my apartment when I came home temporarily after the semester ended
The Beautiful Between by Alyssa Sheinmel - reviewed earlier this week. You know how I felt about it.
This Is Me From Now On by Barbara Dee - this looks and sounds cute; thanks, Barbara!
Tortilla Sun by Jennifer Cervantes - thanks, Jennifer!
Dear Anjali by Melissa Glenn Haber
Crank + Glass gift set by Ellen Hopkins
A Little Wanting Song by Cath Crowley - Thanks, Cath! Isn't that cover really pretty?
Deception by Lee Nichols - came for a tour, and it's pretty riveting
And Then I Found Out the Truth by Jennifer Sturman - I loved the first book, so I'm excited to have the opportunity to review this. Thanks, TK Public Relations!
Dork Diaries, Book 2: Tales from a Not-So-Popular Party Girl by Rachel Renee Russell
Pamela by Samuel Richardson - gotta read up on the epitome of the classic passive-female-rape-culture! Yay those silly 18th-century writers!

Yes, I am aware...that I have a problem. And that no matter how I look at it, there is no way I will ever get to every single one of these books. I blame Alaska Young. On the other hand, I've read 12 books since coming home last Wednesday (plus a lot of manga...). Unfortunately, in light of my book acquiring habits, this is the equivalent of removing an eyedropper full of water from the Atlantic Ocean.
