In My Mailbox (36), a Winner, and a NaNo Update

Let's start with what I got in my mailbox this week, because it's pretty awesome:

 For review:
The Lost Saint by Bree Despain (YAY!)
Afterlife by Claudia Gray

Huge, huge thanks to EgmontUSA/Goodman Media and Harperteen.

Nightshade by Andrea Cremer (HUZZAH! My review for this is here, and my interview with Andrea here.)

Bought (because Goodwill is cool):
Stargazer by Claudia Gray
Pucker by Melanie Gideon

Told you it was a good book week! And now, for the winner of Manifest, as chosen by It is...


I'll be emailing you in just a minute!

NaNoWriMo update: I'm sucking. I'm way under what my word count should be, simply because it seems like I have no time to write. I leave the house just about everyday for most of the day, then come home, do homework, and THEN try to squeeze in as much writing as possible. Currently, my word count is a lousy 4,740. But I'm not giving up. I'm gonna go read some of the pep-talks the NaNo team's been sending me, then write as much as I can.


  1. Great mailbox! I really want to read Nightshade. It looks great!

  2. Omg alot of great books! How about when your done with The Lost Saint you slid it over here ;)
    Hope you enjoy them all!

  3. Awesome books this week. I definitely want to read Afterlife. Nightshade was amazing! I loved it.

    My mailbox is here.

  4. I'm looking forward to the release of The Lost Saint! And yay on participating in NaNo!!

  5. Ohh The Lost Saint, I'm interested in seeing how that sequel is. Also, Pucker? I never heard of it until now, thanks! Happy reading. :)

  6. Great books! I love the Evernight series :)

  7. Ah Nighshade! I must buy this one, it sounds amazing!
    Good luck for NaNo :)

  8. Good luck with NaNoWriMo! I'm doing it too- so far I'm off to a good start (about 10,000 words) but I'm worried once this week kicks in I'll fall behind.

    I hope you have a good experience and write as much as you can! :D

  9. Lucky you with the great books! Keep plugging away at NaNo - good luck!

  10. Great books! I have Nightshade on my shelf, I'm starting it after I finish the book I'm reading now. Good luck with the writing! :)

  11. My NaNo word count is really sucking too!! LOL So don't feel bad :)

  12. Those all look like awesome books :)

    Good luck with your story!

  13. I can't wait The Lost Saint and Afterlife! You're so lucky you got them! Happy reading and can't wait to hear how you liked them! :)

  14. Oh, and very jealous that you have the LOST SAINT - enjoy!
