This was an awesome week. I was fortunate enough to go to ALA Midwinter last weekend, and my books arrived by Monday! The post office is amazing.

    OK, that is epic. And it’s only part one!!! I’m glad you had fun at ALA, but I want a full recap!

    And yes, you totally need to try a vlog. ;)

      Ha, not too much to say about ALA, other than the time I spent with the Emerging Leaders. I got there Thursday night and left Saturday mid-morning. It was fun while it lasted, and I met a lot of cool people in my program!

  6. Alison says:

    Great set! So cool that you got the new Stephanie Burgis book. I want to read Bittersweet too.

    I got a copy of “If Walls Could Talk” from NetGalley too. I’m really looking forward to reading it; domestic history is right up my alley! Got a copy of “Starters,” too, though U haven’t started reading that one yet.

    I’m jealous of your copy of “Switched,” though. I keep hearing so many good things about that book that I really want to read it. Can’t afford a copy yet, but as soon as I can, you can bet I’ll be buying it!

    Happy reading!

  12. I am so damn jealous that you got Renegade Magic! I loved the first one and I’m dieing for the second. Awesome post, you got some sweet books up there :)

    • Audrey Audrey says:

      Renegade Magic was actually on my short list of books I really wanted to pick up at MW. If the S&S Galley Grab ever returns, hopefully it will be offered there.

  13. Madigan says:

    Fantastic set of books! I was at ALA as well… I’ll post about my books next week, once I get everything in the mail.

    I’m really looking forward to reading a lot of these myself.

  14. A. Knight says:

    Ugh, I really gotta read Dark Mirror. I feel like EVERYBODY has read it already. And Switched by Amanda Hocking has been tantalizing me from far away since FOREVER. I’m totally digging the cover and I like the sound of it. Plus, I’ve heard nothing good things about it.

    The Storyteller and Bittersweet (*squeals* I love Sarah Ockler!) are making me excited just by looking at them. They’re definitely going to be fabulous reads. They HAVE to be.

    Have an amazing reading week!

  15. Danya says:

    Nice book haul! When She Woke sounds pretty promising, and Bittersweet has been getting a positive response. I enjoyed Ockler’s first book Twenty Boy Summer so I think I’ll be picking up Bittersweet at some point!

  16. Oh, great mailbox! Switches and Bittersweet are on my wish list. Happy reading!

  17. LUCKY!
