In My Mailbox 47

I think this week was my best book week ever, because I received a novel to review that happens to be written by one of my favorite authors (so, naturally, I was really really excited when I opened the package). 

For Review:
What Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen 
(Eeeeeeek!!!!!!! I can't believe I got it!! I grew up on Dessen's novels, so I'm thrilled to be reviewing this one!*)
Where She Went by Gayle Forman (!!!!)
Betrayal by Lee Nichols (Haunting Emma #2)

Bought (Kindle e-books):
If I Stay by Gayle Forman
Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen 
(I'm loving Water for Elephants so much right now)
Eye Candy by Tera Lynn Childs

Bought (Printed Books):
Silver Phoenix by Cindy Pon 
(Adore this book - so glad I finally got a copy, & with the pretty cover)

From Elana Johnson:
Two bookmarks (one signed) + bottlecap w/ the cover of Possession on it! 

Thank you so much to the wonderful people at Penguin, Elana Johnson, and Kate from Bloomsbury!
