In My Mailbox (42) and Update!

http://www.nataliedee.com/061105/hey-whale.jpg


I am including this little update before my IMM post because I wanted to let you guys know that I haven't disappeared again... at least not permanently!  Unfortunately, my summer break (aka... much needed hiatus from all teacher related activities!) is now over and I'm back at work.  As usual, the two weeks prior to the students returning have been really hectic.  I have had very little time to do anything bloggish!  In addition to all of my 'back to school' craziness, my son started kindergarten this week!  I am such a proud mom and I just couldn't resist including a picture of him on his first day!

I will be announcing the winners of my 'Back To School' giveaway on August 31st (Wednesday)!  If you haven't entered, then you'd better do it soon!  It's open to all followers (international entries welcome).   There are some killer prizes up for grabs~ a copy of Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins, a copy of Infinite Days by Rebecca Maizel, and both Oh. My. Gods and Goddess Bootcamp by Tera Lynn Childs.  You can find the entry form HERE.

I have lots of things on the agenda concerning the blog in the upcoming few weeks.  My one year blogoversary is August 31st!  I can't believe that it has already been a year!  I really want to do something special in celebration of this milestone and as a thank you to all of the wonderful readers that keep me coming back here!  Stay tuned for details.  There are many reviews on the to-do list as well!  I have around 9 books with half written reviews to finish, so as you can see.... there is plenty to do!  Thanks for being patient.

**Thanks to The Story Siren for hosting IMM

'In My Mailbox' is a weekly post that spotlights the new books that were received during the week.  I had a GREAT week and I am very excited about reading and reviewing these titles!!  Here is what I got:

Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
The Frenzy (arc) by Francesca Lia Block
Dark Song (arc) by Gail Giles
Immortal Beloved (arc) by Cate Tiernan
*I also won a really cool Mockingjay sticker that glows in the dark from WordForTeens! Thanks!!!

Now you know what I got!  What did you get?
