In My Mailbox lets you peek into the contents of my mailbox on a weekly basis. I am listing all the lovely books that I have aquired this week. If you would like to participate and have your own “In My Mailbox” post, you can find more information here on the Story Siren's blog, where it all began..(This post was inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie

It has been a while since I have posted an IMM post and I hope that I will keep on my posts.This month I was truly a lucky gal. I truly cannot wait to read The Pledge, Everneath and The Butterfly clues. Heck! I want to read them all right now, but I have them in my TBR pile to join the others.

August:
Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma
The Pledge by Kimberly Derting
The Probability of Miracles by Wendy Wunder
Every Other Day by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
Everneath by Brodi Ashton
Perception by Kim Harrington
Above by Leah Bobet
The Butterfly Clues by Kate Ellison
Take a Bow by Elizabet Eulberg

That is my IMMB for this week. What is in yours?

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”

Nora Ephron, I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman
