In My Mailbox: June: ALA edition

Alright, here's the crazy ALA edition of IMM (you all know who this is hosted by, right?  Moving on.)  I got other stuff this month too, but between all the crazy, I can't really recall what, so there is just a fraction of the non-ALA listed at the bottom.

Note: I tried stacking these in one tower -- it was catastophic.  I realized when I finished restacking that it could never have worked anyway -- it would have gone past the ceiling... Also note: according to color. You get a little preview of what it will (eventually) look like on my shelves.

Here's my super shaky video of the books so you can see the covers.  I had to lay them out in the hall, and by the time I was done, there wasn't really room to walk, so this is what happens when I take a video walking on my tiptoes...

For Review:
The Unidentified, Rae Mariz
Manifest, Artist Arthur
Random Magic, Sasha Soren (came with tea, chocolate, and a green rubber ducky.  It was a very happy-making package)

For sheer loveliness:
my very own fairy from vvb along with a host of other goodies that I can't recall at the moment...

And yes, it's a pretty safe bet that the doubles I have are going to end up in the prize pool I keep dangling over your head.  One of these days, I will have both the time and ambition to sort through my monstrosity of books and throw some into the pool.  Someday.


  1. Wow! It's like Christmas in July. You got so many amazing books, but out of all of those I so desperately want The House of Dead Maids. Enjoy all your awesome books!

  2. Nice haul! I didn't realize you were at ALA...I was too! I hope you had fun. *grin* Well, judging by the books, I assume you did!

  3. Eeeek! Those look awesome! Hope you enjoy reading for the rest of the week...err..eternity! I'll be keeping an eye out for your reviews!

  4. WOW! A BIG WOW! It's insane! I'm pretty much you got more books at ALA than what I have on my bookshelves! I wish I could lived near and could go, too. I do hope you enjoy all of them! :)

  5. This comment has been removed by the author.

  6. Wow, that's a lot of books! A lot of them sound really good too! (So jealous!) Hope you enjoy them all! ^_^

  7. Wow am I jealous! Those stacks are beautiful! Sigh...

  8. What an amazing haul. You'll need a new book case just to house them all. Enjoy!

  9. Misty, please dont make a police report if find out all of them missing by midnight.It will be safely stacked on my bookshelf! LOL

  10. Oh My...wow...I think I would be in heaven and anxiety ridden at the same time. So many lovelies to choose from!!

    Check out our Mailbox at BookSake.

  11. What a wonderful group of books! I just have to get to the ALA convention one of these years. My mailboxes are here and here. Happy reading!

  12. I am so jealous, that is one amazing haul. I need to get to one of these conferences next year!

  13. Yay for all of those books. I'm so jealous!

  14. Oh wow! Thats one nice pile of books. ^^

  15. You could start your own library with all those books ;)

    Hope you enjoy them all!

  16. OMGosh!!! Happy reading, you'll be doing a mass amount of it!

  17. What an amazing list! Have fun reading for a long, long time. ;]

  18. I didn't think Beautiful Darkness was out yet! You lucky duck! I would kill to have half of those books!

  19. It's not out yet. Most of what I got are ARCs.

  20. Oh-my-Sweet Lord, Misty, just how many books did you get?!

  21. Holy piles of books Batman! That is some excellent haul you got there missy :) Oh, and I've been meaning to write to you to tell you I got you a signed copy of Marbury Lens, signed to you :)

  22. You have Scumble!!! I hate you! And was that Half World I saw near the middle in the top row. I'm looking forward to that one, too.

  23. For little ole me? =D (<-- big happy face!)

    And Scumble was one of my big scores. I think it may have been my happiest moment, just because it was completely unexpected. There were books I was looking for and expecting, and Scumble wasn't one of them. I didn't think it was due out any time soon, and I loved Savvy. Big happytime.

  24. I'm about to cry!!! Like, total tearage going on here. Dare I say I totally despise you? No, I wouldn't dare, but I suuuurre would love to. Just color me envy green with some sinful black to match!

    Bah! Whatever. Enjoy your books! XD And if you don't enjoy them, send them to me, for heaven's sake! Any person who gets an ARC of "Beautiful Darkness" should send it to MOI if they have a heart!! XD

    Alright. Craziness has died down...a little.

    Happy reading!! *moans in agony*

    -Amelia XD
