In My Mailbox {#8}

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren! It's a chance to share what books you've gotten in the past week, whether in your mailbox, from the store or the library! 

I'm super excited to dive into The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater! I pre-ordered on the 12th of this month and It arrived on the release date - right on time! 

I also bought these books for my Kindle:


I was incredibly lucky and won a signed ARC of Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood. I've been wanting to read this SOSOSO bad, so I was over the freaking moon to win this! I also won an ARC of The Catastrophic History of You & Me by Jess Rothenberg, which I'm also very excited to read. Though I'm totally heart broken, because when I read the summary on the back I realized how similar it sounded to my current work in progress. Goodbye work in progress, say hello to the Windows trash bin! I also won some signed bookmarks and a few stickers! Aren't they gorgeous? Thank you so much to Jessica Spotswood for hosting the giveaway!
