In My Mailbox: RT Booklovers edition

I recently went to Teen Day at the RT Booklover's convention in Chicago, Illinois and had a blast.  I'm looking forward to attending the full conference next year.  This in my mailbox is mostly from that conference, but I had some surprises awaiting me when I returned home.  I will do another post on the convention and how much fun we had.  Unfortunately, some of my pictures were fuzzy.  :(

The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead
Fairy Tales and Nightmares by Melissa Marr
The Selection by Kierra Cass
Hearts at Stake by Alyxandra Harvey
Onyx by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

The first three books were given to my nephew and he graciously let me read them. All teens were given a bag full of books from epic reads. Hearts At Stake was given away free at the Teen Party. Everyone grabbed one (there were five of us total) and then they realized that there was one in their free bag, so I got the duplicates. I won Onyx at the Entangled party and I bought Obsidian. I only spent $10. I thought that was pretty good!


I liked these bookmarks that I got. They had neat quotes on them.

Some autographed swag that I got for future contests. The authors were really nice and gave me lots of stuff. :)

Innocents by Francesca Sebal
Vampire Crush by A. M. Robinson
A Chance in the World by Steve Pemberton

When I came home, I had Innocents and A Chance in the World waiting for me. I bought Vampire Crush.

Yay! I got my World Book Night books. I got Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson. They have a special cover and back cover for the World Book Night promotion. In the literature, it said that more than a million books were donated and will be given away. How cool is that?


  1. Awesome IMM!! Look at all that swag!!! and OMG you got Onyx!!! So lucky!!!!! :D

    1. I know!! When I saw Jennifer Armentrout in the Book Fair, I told her I was there to get Onyx. She told me about the Entangled Party. My family and I won a total of THREE copies from that party. We were very excited. I had Jennifer sign my copy and she wrote in there "Daemon wholly approves of this win." :)

      A lot of the swag will be used for future contests. I got a lot of swag for books that will be coming out soon.

  2. WOW ! first off * drools over swag* secondly. OBSIDIAN AND ONYX ! yay >.< loved obsidian, can't wait to read onyx :)yay for the selection as well! I should be getting that one back soon and can't wait to read it!
