In My Mailbox #78

I cannot believe just how many books I have managed to collect in just under a month, I have to give a great big shout out to the lovely members of the Aussie Swap for sending out most of these wonderful books to me while also managing to clear my older shelves out just a tad. 

In other groundbreaking news, I actually entered a "bricks and mortar" bookstore this week and purchased a physical book which is a huge rarity for me due to my huge love of The Book Depository. The title that won me over was the Beautiful Creatures which I have been curiously keeping an eye on since it started making waves in the blogosphere, luckily the 75% discount had me rushing out of the store with one of the best covers of the year!

  1. A Small Free Kiss in the Dark by Glenda Millard
  2. And Then Things Fall Apart by Arlaina Tibensky (Pretty sure I'll be adding a typewriter to my wishlist after reading this one.)
  3. Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl
  4. Boys, Girls and Other Hazardous Materials by Rosalind Wiseman
  5. Dangerous to Know by Katy Moran
  6. Drummer Girl by Karen Bass
  7. Fireworks: Four Summer Stores (I have finally given in to those indulgent short story books filled with extremely popular authors...)
  8. How Now Brown Frau by Merridy Eastman
  9. Imaginary Girls by Nova Ren Suma
  10. Jumping Off Swings by Jo Knowles (This one has been on my wishlist forever, great to finally own it!)
  11. Kiss Me Deadly: 13 Tales of Paranormal Love
  12. Love is the Higher Law by David Levithan (I wasn't expecting this one to be such a tiny, tiny book and I think I actually ordered it on or around the 9th of September, creepy!)
  13. Prom Nights From Hell by Meg Cabot, Lauren Myracle, etc
  14. Reamde by Neal Stephenson
  15. The Book of Tomorrow by Cecelia Ahern (Yay! Thanks to The Story Siren for introducing me to this awesome chick-lit)
  16. The Espressologist by Kristina Springer
  17. The Goddess Test #1 by Aimee Carter
  18. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith (I may have an incredibly lame version of the cover, but I am still extremely keen to read this one asap.)
  19. The Sweet Life by Rebecca Lim
  20. Tantalize #1 by Cynthia Leitich Smith
  21. The Amazing Life of Cats by Candida Baker (Forgive me for bad taste, I'm a recently new cat owner.)
  22. Thirsty by M.T. Anderson
  23. Ultraviolet by R.J. Anderson
  24. Withering Tights by Louise Rennison (Super keen to finally read something from this supposedly hilarious author.)
oh, and here are some cookies for you...
