In My Mail Box or Shopping Bag (Dec 27)

Or in the case of this week - under my Christmas tree!!

This is a weekly meme inspired by Kristi at The Story Siren and Alea at Pop Culture Junkie. In it we share what books arrived at our house via mail, bookstore or library. I got several books this week. Here we go!

The Hollow by Jessica Verday (thanks Wonderous Reads!)

For Christmas
Willow by Julia Hoban
The Hate List by Jennifer Brown
Swoon by Nina Malkin
Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles
Leaving Paradise by Simone Elkeles
Cracked Up to Be by Courtney Summers

From author Rachel Vincent
After being to late in getting in on some left over ARCs she was giving away, she checked out my blog, saw that I was working to get kids to read and was so unbelievably kind to offer me both books! Be sure to check out her website to see what else she has written.
