In My Mailbox {48}

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren, where we all share what we got during the week!

So my IMM is alittle on the excessive side this week. First off, because this is actually two weeks worth, I didn't have a free second to post anything last week due to the holidays. And secondly, because I went a little crazy with the book shopping and am now going to self-impose a book buying ban on myself for the sake of my husband's sanity. (At least until next month when Desires of the Dead comes out, and then I will have no choice but to break that ban! lol)
So here we go...

Review stuff:
Drought by Pam Bachorz
Sounds intense---I've been anticipating this one for awhile now!
Small Persons with Wings by Ellen Booraem
This cover is the best. The words are all glittery!
The Lost Saint by Bree Despain
Almost done with this one--review coming soon!
The Book of Tomorrow by Cecelia Ahern
I've read one other book by this author and really loved it. Excited to read this!
Tiger's Curse by Colleen Houck
Description says its an "epic fantasy-romance"---like it already :)
Teenie by Christopher Grant
I don't read enough contemporary so I'm looking forward to this one!
Book Buying Binge:
Tempestuous by Lesley Livingston
Oh, I do love this series. Will be sad to see it end.
Around the World in 100 Days by Gary L. Blackwood
Hubby is already reading this one---the cover is fantastic!!
Hunger Games Trilogy Box Set by Suzanne Collins
I will read this soon. Finally.
Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce
One of my favorite books of last year---SO glad to finally have it for my collection!
Rose Sees Red by Cecil Castellucci

Binge, continued:
Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin
Avalon High by Meg Cabot
Have to admit, the DisneyChannel movie previews got me curious about this one! I never did watch it but now I can read the book instead!
Ice by Sarah Beth Durst
Jane and the Raven King by Stephen Chambers
I am completely smitten with the cover of this book. LOVE.
Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffers
I've picked up this one over and over again...finally bought it.
Angel Star by Jennifer Murgia
I've heard such amazing things about this one, had to see for myself!
