IMM #20 - It's My Birthday and I'll Buy If I Want To

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren where bloggers and readers can talk about the books and booky things they have received in the last week - paper-books, e-books, library loans, swaps, wins, anything!

OK it's still two weeks until my birthday but I made a deal with Mr. Kat - he gave me free reign to buy as many books that I thought I deserved for my birthday - so of course I made the most of it ;-).  If you want to join in on my birthday celebration, enter my birthday giveaway.

Dark Parties by Sara Grant
Flip by Martyn Bedford
Mockingbird by Walter Tevis
Eve by Anna Carey
Fracture by Megan Miranda
Across the Universe by Beth Revis
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma

Dead Things by Matt Darst
Night Swim by Jessica Kenner
Sudden Independents by Ted Hill
Upgrade by Stephen Hise (I had to buy this one after it was listed for $1,000,000.00 on Smashwords and I got a coupon for a 100% discount - fun marketing strategy as I now have a receipt saying I bought something worth $1,000,000.00)

For review
The Assault by Brian Falkner (thanks to Random House via NetGalley)
The Lifeboat by Charlotte Rogan (thanks to Little, Brown and Company via NetGalley)
