In My Mailbox (7/18/10)

It's time for In My Mailbox, hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren.  It was another great week here at I'd So Rather Be Reading!  Natalie (along with the help of a couple of awesome family members) is totally changing the look of our site.  It's still under construction, but we love it so far! 

Friday I received an ARC tour book:
Goodbye to All That by Margo Candela, from Crazy Book Tours

I also got Tyger Tyger by Kersten Hamilton for reviewI've never read a book about goblins before, so I'm looking forward to trying something new.

Natalie won a signed copy of The Wish List by Gabi Stevens, from The Book Vixen.  She's making me read it first, to decide if she'll like it---if you didn't already know, Natalie is a book snob who reads five star books only.  I am her gateway to five star books.

Natalie bought Linger by Maggie Steifvater...and I bought a Nook! I didn't buy any books this week, though, after my book buying spree last week (see my last IMM post here).  After loving the 1st generation Kindle I got for free from a friend (who didn't like e-readers), I decided to buy a Nook because the Kindle had some problems that were going to be difficult to fix.  So far I love it!

Lastly, I borrowed Stray by Rachel Vincent from the library.  I've heard great things about her, and wanted to jump right in to a new series.

In addition to working on our layout, Natalie and her husband made us some new t-shirts!

What do you think?

What's in your mailbox this week?

    PS I love the little green blurp about Fictional Men Never let you Down. :)

  3. Another quick word to say... I LOVE DAMON! The countdown is perfect since I now know when to expect to see my evil Damon back in the throng of action with Elena / Catherine to play with his mind. TEAM DAMON!

  4. I got Linger as well! I can't wait to read it. I hope you enjoy all your books!

  5. Ooh, Linger and Tyger Tyger! Both look fab - enjoy :)

  8. Great selection. I've been seeing Tyger Tyger a lot around the blogosphere. I'm interested to see what you think.

  9. Oooo, that is a great T-Shirt!! So pretty, and it's only too true!! ^_-

    I didn't get as much goodies as you this week, but I definitely found some great reads that I wasn't aware of.

  10. What a great *catch* in your mailbox this week. :)--come to think of it, I don't think I've ever read a goblin book either. hmmm

  11. Hi, I am a new follower from Book Blogs! Congrats on the Nook, I LOVE mine. If you ever want to trade books I have a link to my GoodReads on my blog. I have a lend shelf on there that has about 13 or 14 books on it, I think :)

  12. I read Tyger, Tyger via NetGalley and LOVED it, hope you enjoy it!

  13. LMAO!!! Natalie is making you read The Wish List first as a Guinea pig!! Love it! I'm kind of a book snob myself but I do try to step outside my comfort zone every once in a while to shake things up.

    I've read Stray and really liked it. I have books 2, 3, and 4. I'm working on getting the rest of the series. I can't wait to get back into Faythe and Marc and Jace :) I love me a good love triangle!
