In My Mailbox #20

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi from The Story Siren

Technically I didn't get any books in the mail this week, but here are the books I got that I didn't get a chance to share last week!

-Frost by Marianna Baer (Signed)
(Won from Ashley @ Book Obsession)

-Eve by Anna Carey (Signed)
(Won from Becky @ Stories & Sweeties)

Thanks, ladies!  I can't wait to read either of these books and I've been especially excited to read Eve, so I'll make sure to get to these soon!

If you want a chance to win a book, there's less than a week to enter my giveaway, so be sure to check that out if you haven't already!  (Click here!)

But wait!  Before you guys go, I wanted to ask a question.  This Christmas, it'll be pretty bare underneath the tree in my house.  Do you think I should save all the books I happen to get in the mail over the next couple weeks and open them on Christmas day?  I was thinking that it would be a good idea to pretend they were little gifts delivered by Santa, but it's just too hard to contain my excitement when I get a package in the mail, so I don't know if I'm patient enough for that!  Tell me your thoughts.  :)

Thanks for stopping by!  Leave the link to your IMM in the bottom so I can leave you some love, too!

  3. I liked Eve, I'm definitely looking forward to the next one. I have got Frost on my wishlist, it looks so cool! Great books :0)

  4. Wow, Chey, you're seriously lucky. :D Let us know how Eve goes, I've heard interesting things about it!

  5. Oh, and that sounds like SUCH a good idea... although I don't know if I'd be able to hold in my impatience either. :P Maybe save the ones you get just a week before, so it's not such a long wait?

  6. Great books this week!!

    Eve is really good!!

  7. Both of those books look really good. They are both on my TBR list. Thank you for stopping by my blog. Enjoy your books. :)

  8. I still haven't read Eve either I'm really intrigued by all the mixed opinions! Awesome haul!

  9. It's always great to win things! I've read EVE and really enjoyed it.

    As for your question at the bottom, I wrap books I buy myself up until Christmas and just put my hubby's name on them. The money comes from the same place anyway so it's like he's buying me a gift. So I'm all for saving them till Christmas. You'll be just as excited about them then!

  10. It's always fun to win books!! Eve didn't interest me at first, but there have been many people who have said it was great. Maybe one day I'll get to it. Great books this week.

    Thanks for stopping by my IMM.

  11. These both sound so good, and what fantastic covers!

  12. Frost and Eve both look awesome! Congrats on the wins! Fun. Happy Reading, Megan @ Read It, See It

  13. Eve is on my wishlist :D Good job getting that! As for the presents, if you can contain yourself, then that is a great idea! I wouldn't be able to do it. I'm to anxious when something comes in the mail for me. It's already open before I even close the door lol

  14. If I was you, I wouldn't be able to wait!!! I would just open the packages when you get them, do a happy dance, and then put them under the tree to marvel at until you take the tree down in February.

    And awesome wins!!! I've heard good things about both books. Thanks for visiting my blog!!! I'm a new follower now ;)

  15. Awesome books! I have Eve but haven't read it yet. Still trying to get my hands on Frost.

    I wouldn't be able to wait. I want my books and I want them NOW!! lol. Even if I know I won't be able to read it right away, if there is a book I want, I get it. Just knowing it is here waiting for me makes all the difference :)

    Thank you for stopping by Book Cover Justice, I'm a new follower!

  16. Nice IMM!

    Thanks for visiting mine....I wasn't impressed with Miss Peregrine, but I hope you enjoy it!


  17. I've read a lot of good things about both of these. Enjoy! Thanks for visiting.

  18. Ooo, that's awesome that you got signed copies! Lucky you! I haven't read Frost but I did read, and enjoy, Eve. Happy Reading!

  19. That's awesome you got some signed copies. Very fun!! =)

    Hmmmm I don't know if I would be able to handle the anticipation of opening packages then. But it sounds like a fun idea!

  20. A signed copy of Eve? That's awesome! I hope you like it!! (:

    Thanks for stopping by and Happy Reading! (:

  21. I've been wanting to pick up Eve myself! Hope you enjoy it! Thanks for stopping by.

  22. I like Eve! hope you enjoy it!

    As for the Christmas thing, maybe you could try putting at least one package. I'm sure you have a lot of others still unread on you shelf so let's just see if you can control your urge to open the package.

    It would be fun to see you squirm... er, I mean be patient until it's time to open presents. LOL.^_^

    Thanks for stopping by. Happy reading!

  23. Hey, better late than never! ^.~ Ahh, I still need to read EVE! Oops! Hmm, your Christmas dilemna is hard! For me, I wouldn't be able to wait if it was something I really, really wanted to read! Can you open them and then wrap them with gift wrap? lol!

  24. You got two great books this week! I would say that you should put the books under the tree because you can't read them all at once anyway. And even though I completely understand the need to open them all right away, like I said you won't be able to read all of them at the same time anyway so you might as well give yourself something fun to open on Christmas!

  25. Eve is a great book- I hope you enjoy it!
    Congratulations on your wins!

  26. I have Frost on my pile...hoping to start it soon. Eve looks awesome! And I am in no way patient enough to wait until Christmas Day to open my books. So, good luck with that. :)

  27. I want both of those books you are so lucky to have won them!, great IMM and thanks for stopping by.

  28. Thanks for stopping by my IMM. I've heard good and bad things about Eve - so naturally I'm intrigued!
