In My Mailbox (10)/Read Your Name Challenge

Thanks to Kristi from The Story Siren for hosting this awesome meme. None for review this week, but I still managed to get a great haul!

Firespell by Chloe Neill
Ash by Malinda Lo
Bleeding Violet by Dia Reeves
Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld (Signed!!! That was such a happy-making surprise!)
(I won all four of those from Dark Faerie Tales. Thanks again!)
The Body Finder Swag (Including a signed bookmark! Thank you again to Sasha from The Sweet Bonjour!)

From Paperbackswap:
Thirst by Christopher Pike

The Summoning by Kelly Armstrong
The Faerie Path by Frewin Jones
Far World by J. Scott Savage
(Thank you to Cat from Beyond Books for sending me these!((Twitter followers: this was the mystery package.)

Wondrous Strange by Lesley Livingston
My Soul To Take by Rachel Vincent
The House of the Scorpion (Bought last week from Goodwill and completely forgot to mention it last week.)

Borrowed (from friend):
If I Stay by Gale Foreman (That's the white book without the dust jacket. Apparently she doesn't trust me with her dusk jacket.)

That's it for me this week.

Oh, and I've just found a challenge that sounds like a lot of fun, the Read Your Name Challenge. The books I'm planning to read for the challenge are:

Jekyl Loves Hyde by Beth Fantaskey
Everlost by Neal Shusterman
Strange Angels by Lili St. Crow
Seven Tears Into The Sea by Terri Farley
I Heart You, You Haunt Me by Lisa Schroeder
City of Glass by Cassandra Clare
Angus, Thongs, And Full-Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison
