The best IMM ever!

OK, I know it's not Sunday or even Monday, but I'm (Flo) having the BEST In My Mailbox week and I just have to share! In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren.

Here's why my IMM is so fab this week -- first, I won a couple of awesome contests right before I went to Australia for a week, so I knew the prizes would be waiting for me when I returned. Secondly, I got goodies from the awesomest co-admin ever Mary for this blog, and lastly, because I splurged on some international books, which are just so neat! Here, let me show you....


The top three books are the UK editions of The Hunger Games trilogy. Splurge! I saw The Hunger Games and thought I should at least get the first book. Then the only other one that store had was Mockingjay, which was my favorite read of 2010, and one of my favorite books overall. I had to get it, too! I found Catching Fire at another bookstore, and, you know, I needed to complete the trifecta.

Next to Mockingjay are some of the new Book Nerds cards! You'll see these when we send you prizes =) The second row starts with the special edition Twilight, with the red pages and white cover. It's gorgeous. I kind of regret not getting the rest of the series. The middle book is The Key to Rondo, and I got it because it's a short-listed book from The Children's Book Council of Australia. It looks like a Chronicles of Narnia type adventure. Above it, though it's a little hard to see in this picture, is my new "I'm a Book Nerd" keychain. Fitting, huh?!

The Hunger Games is for the winner of our First in a Series contest. Bottom row: an autographed audiobook of Linger by Maggie Stiefvater!! =D I won it in a Twitter contest. Finally, Playing the Field is Australian chick lit.

Most fun IMM ever.
