In My Mailbox (13) -Julie

In My Mailbox is a meme started by The Story Siren and inspired by Alea at Pop Culture Junkie.

Not the greatest week ever, but definitely not bad! And I know I've got some swag coming next week too.


The Swag

The Anastasia's Secret bookmark was a nice surprise from Susanne. I already have one, but I guess she got them laminated and decided to send a laminated one too! This one is also signed and will be going to the swag contest that will someday be. I thought about keeping this one, but I think it will probably mail better than the non laminated one. The hour from Susanne's house to mine is one thing, acr
oss country is a whole different one!

The Body Finder signed bookmark and two stickers I won from Hope at Hope's Bookshelf.
She does a giveaway every week and has been blogging for over two years. So go follow her blog!


The Books

Radiant Darkness by Emily Whitman:

He smiles. "Hello." It's a deep voice. I can feel it reverberate in my chest and echo all the way down to my toes. I know I should leave, but I don't want to. I want to keep my senses like this forever. I'm all eye, all ear, all skin. Persephone lives in the most gorgeous place in the world. But her mother's a goddess, as overprotective as she is powerful. Paradise has become a trap. Just when Persephone feels there's no chance of escaping the life that's been planned for her, a mysterious stranger arrives. A stranger who promises something more—something dangerous and exciting—something that spurs Persephone to make a daring choice. A choice that could destroy all she's come to love, even the earth itself. In a land where a singing river can make you forget your very name, Persephone is forced to discover who—and what—she really is.


Just One Wish by Janette Rallison:
Seventeen-year-old Annika Truman knows about the power of positive thinking. With a little brother who has cancer, it’s all she ever hears about. And in order to help Jeremy, she will go to the ends of the earth (or at least as far as Hollywood) to help him believe he can survive his upcoming surgery.

But Annika’s plan to convince Jeremy that a magic genie will grant him any wish throws her a curveball when he unexpectedly wishes that his television idol would visit him. Annika suddenly finds herself in the desperate predicament of getting access to a hunky star actor and convincing him to come home with her. Piece of cake, right?

Janette Rallison’s proven talent for laugh-out-loud humor, teen romance, and deep-hearted storytelling shines in a novel that will have readers laughing and crying at the same time.

Radiant Darkness has been on my list for a while because, although I'm not into Greek mythology, some myths interest me. Persephone and Hades is one of them. Just One Wish was one of those books I found spontaneously and I had enough money on Amazon for it. I ordered both of these after getting enough swagbucks to afford two $5 Amazon Gift Cards. I'm hoping that later this week I'll be able to order another book or two.

So, what did you guys get this week?
