In My Mailbox #32

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Sirenwhich showcases the books we’ve purchased, borrowed and received in the mail this week. This is the 32nd episode of HOARDERS, Books Edition.

In which I squee’d like a fangirl. 

Almost by Anne Eliot
On the Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
Yep. That’s me – in the ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS. It’s the never ending gratitude. You rock, Anne. That is all. I had no prior knowledge that she was going to do this. She was actually a little bit scared that I would freak out because she asked me after the fact. Lol.
And as if my IMM this week couldn’t be any more epic than it already is, Melina Marchetta sent me a SIGNED paperback copy of On the Jellicoe Road. Yes, THAT Melina Marchetta – the goddess divine, Melina Marchetta.
Thanks to Simon & Schuster Canada for this ARC! TMI in 3..2..I may have pee’d in my pants from excitement when I saw this.
Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult and Samantha Van Leer
In which I totally lost it at the bookstore.

The Musician’s Daughter by Susanne Dunlap
