In My Mailbox (18)

In My a meme hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren, and is a way for bloggers to share all the bookish (books they've won, been given, given for review, checked out from the library)  goodness that recently came into their possession. 
"Here's the mail, it never fails.  
 It makes me want to wag my tail.   
When it comes I want to wail - Maillllllll!"
 (Mail Song from Blue's Clues)

In my mailbox this week...


I won this from the awesomesauce Jessica of Hackaroo's Reviews. She actually sent me another surprise book- Stray (Shifters #1)- which isn't pictured because my mom is currently reading it! THANK YOU Jessica :)

So, I went to the bookstore today and told myself that I could only buy one book (trying to practice control and be all grown upish and save money and all *eye roll*) and I didn't really have any specific book in mind. But I ended up picking up Looking for Alaska by John Green, which I have never read and when I opened it up I found a cute little note. Here's an excerpt from the note:
This is easily one of the greatest books you'll ever have the pleasure of reading. John is truly are welcome! <3 a nerdfighter
Now, after getting this message from an awesome nerdfighter I couldn't not buy the book, right?!

Nice haul! You're going to LOVE THE MAPMAKER AND THE GHOST! I can't wait to read ONE FOR THE MURPHYS, too.

Great set! I really want to read Shadow and Bone. I got John Green's book too and hope to start it soon. Enjoy!

I really would like to get my hands on The Mapmaker and the Ghost, but I'm afraid I have requested too many from NG, so I'm reluctant to ask.
