in my mailbox (11)

I got a lot of really awesome books this week at the ALA midwinter conference. These are a few that I'm super excited about. My camera is being a pain so these were taken with my phone--not the best pics.

Corsets and Clockwork Story Collection
Lost and Found by Shaun Tan
What Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen
(so excited! I love Dessen)
The Piper's Son by Melina Marchetta
(I'm a huge Marchetta fan. Loved saving Francesca and Jellico Road)
Divergent by Veronica Roth
Back When You Were Easier To Love by Emily Wing Smith
Wolfsbane by Andrea Cremer
(such a beautiful looking book-and it's just an arc)
Like Maderine by Kristen Hubbard
Haunting Violet by Alyxandra Harvey
(huge harvey fan here)
Demonglass by Rachel Hawkins
(yay! yay! yay!)
Jenna and Jonah's Fauxmance by Emily Franklin and Brendan Halpin
Where She Went by Gayle Forman
(already read, massively in love with this book)
Nightspell by Leah Cypress
Where I Belong by Gwendolyn Heasley
Queen of the Dead by Stacey Kade
(I own The Ghost and the Goth but haven't read it yet, now I must so I can read this one!)

The very last day of the conference most of the publishers sell or giveaway their hardcover and paperback display copies. Half of these I bought for $5 each, the other half I got for free. If I'd had more cash with me, I probably would have bought more. It's an addiction.
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
(I need to read this!)
The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson
(loved this book-beautiful writing and touching story)
Bright Young Things by Anna Godbersen
(need to read this one, too!)
Cryer's Cross by Lisa McMann
Delirium by Lauren Oliver
(loved this book!)
Nightshade by Andrea
Rosebush by Michele Jaffe
(this book intrigues me lots...must read)
The Water Wars by Cameron Stracher Tell Me a Secret by Holly Cupala
Birthmarked by Caragh O'Brien
(love this book. Can't wait for the next)
Pathfinder by Orson Scott Card
Fixing Delilah by Sarah Ockler
Five Flavors of Dumb by Antony John

Oh. Divergent and Wolfsbane! I'm so jealous I could cry. I don't suppose you'd be willing to share? ;)

Someday I vow to go to ALA and/or BEA. Someday.
