In My Mailbox #20

 Of course I intended to post way before this (ten days is a stretch for me), but it's taken me over two weeks to finish The Printmaker's Daughter. I still have 100 pages left, actually, but it should get finished sometime this week...

For review:
Memento Nora #2: The Forgetting Curve by Angie Smibert (many thanks to the author and the publisher!)

Won, many thanks to Eli to the Nth:
Paper Towns by John Green (signed!)
An Abundance of Katherines by John Green
Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green
...and a sampler for The Fault in Our Stars

Won from elsewhere:
The Personal History of Rachel DuPree by Ann Weisgarber (thanks, Book Snob!)
White Seed by Paul Clayton (thanks, BookTrib!)
edited 2/17/12: My bad, this was a win from Historical Fiction Connection! I'm so sorry for the misattribution; I'm not sure how that happened.
The Ark Sakura by Kobo Abe (thanks, Julie over at Manga Maniac Cafe!)
I finally have non-Western (not to mention non-English) science fiction! Bwahaha...

The Age of the Conglomerates by Thomas Nevins

Purchased for school:
Tess of the d'Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy
The ONE non-poetry reading for British Lit II, and it's this.

The "I got in!" postcard actually came a few weeks ago, but I thought now would be a good time to announce that I've been accepted at all three colleges to which I applied: James Madison, UNC-Chapel Hill, and East Carolina. I've also been accepted into ECU's Honors College. Now I just have to decide where I want to go...


  1. That is quite the pile of fun books! Enjoy!

  2. Congrats on making it into those schools :)

  3. A lot of John Green this week. I was able to get a signed copy of The Fault in our Stars, can't wait to open it. It sounds fantastic! Great pile this week. Happy reading.

  4. Ooh, John Green books! I have yet to read one, but I just ordered two this week!

    And CONGRATS about your acceptances!! That is so awesome. :)
