 In My Mailbox is a weekly (or monthly or when is works for you) meme hosted by The Story Siren.

With all the excitement that was ATBF last weekend I didn't get a chance to do an In My Mailbox post, so here is what I had in my mailbox over the past two weeks:

 This was the first signing line that I was in for Austin Teen Book Festival, I really enjoyed the Chronicles of Vladimir Todd and really like sharing them with my students. 

I was lucky enough to win an ARC of Lola and the Boy Next Door over the summer and LOVED IT!!!  I haven't read Anna and the French Kiss yet, but had to rescue it from a Borders sale. 
Even better is that they are now all signed now!

 My school librarian had me read How NOT to be Popular last school year and I really enjoyed it.  Now I have my own signed copy and a signed Sass & Serendipity.

 The middle picture is of books from the some of the Real Life is Messy panel. 

 My Scott Westerfeld pile, all signed.  I'm most excited about the signed UK version of Uglies.

I was lucky enough to see Maureen Johnson when she stopped by Blue Willow Bookshop before heading to the ATBF. (all signed)

 Pen Fatale - I was such a fan girl at school when these wonderful ladies stopped by for a school visit.  They had a great message and my students even said "Miss, I've never seen you smile before".  I'm excited to share these with my students.

I won this copy from Ashley @ Book Labyrinth 

I also picked up some cool swag at ATBF and I also received 
bookmarks, cards and stickers from Miranda Kenneally, but don't have pictures of them yet.   


  1. Wow! Look at all those signed books! :) Awesome! I was lucky to win a signed copy of Goliath by Scott Westerfeld and received it this week! I've never read anything by him, so I'm excited to start that series - just need the first book from the library!
