In My Mailbox: Week 77

In My Mailbox was started by The Story Siren.

If you hadn't noticed from my lack of commenting on others' blogs and email replying, I was away for the past week on vacation in North Carolina to be exact. (Miss me? ;) I not only had a fantastic time but got a lot of reading done as well, so lookout for a bunch of reviews coming up soon. Anyway, when I got home I had a stack of packages waiting to be opened, which is always great sight, no? :) What was in those packages is below...


For Review:

Cum Laude by Cecily von Ziegesar (Cecily's Gossip Girl/The It Girl series are the perfect guilty pleasures, so I'm hoping this one will be the same. Thanks Hyperion!)
Tyger Tyger (Goblin Wars, #1) by Kersten Hamilton (Surprise book from Clairion Books, and I have to say it was a great one, since I can't wait to read it! Thanks Clairion/Jenny!)
The Ivy by Lauren Kunze and Rina Onur x2 (I somehow got two copies of this, so do you know what that means? GIVEAWAY soon! Thanks HarperTeen!)
Theodosia and the Eyes of Horus (Theodosia Throckmorton, Book #3) by R.L. LaFevers (Another surprise book but this time from Houghton Mifflin Books. I don't think I'll be reading it though (so giveaway possible for this as well) because it's not really my spped and this is book #3 and I haven't read the first two. Thanks HMBC!)
The Basilisk's Lair (Nathaniel Fludd, Beastologist, Book #2) (Another surprise book from Houghton Mifflin Books. Again, I probably won't read it because it's not my speed, and I haven't read the first one, so possibly giveaway for this one as well soon. Thanks HMBC!)

In all, great yet small week, which I'm thankful for because I already have several books for review that I need to read ASAP. Though enough about me, what did you get this week? Anything fab or similar to my stash? Let me know below. :)

Also, contest winners will be posted very soon! Sorry for the delay.
