In My Mailbox (81) + I got a Surprise in the Mail...and Contest Link of Awesome

In My Mailbox was started by Kristi of The Story Siren and inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie. Sadly the only books I order are those that are hard to find. The following books are from the library and bookstores.

Won:
You Killed Wesley Payne  ARC by Sean Beaudoin, 2011. Published by Little Brown Book for Young Readers.
I absolutely love this cover, so awesome. A YA noir mystery, one can't possible go wrong with that. I'll probably try to get to this one as soon as I catch up on what I'm currently reading.

A huge thanks goes out to Donna of Bites.

Dash & Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan, 2010. Published by Knopf Books for Young Readers.
I've heard great things about Dash & Lily's Book of Dares, along with the other books by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan, so I'm really looking forward to reading it. I'd also thank Lauren of Random House for sending after the first one got lost in transit (thanks so much).
A huge thanks goes out to Random House, I won this book during one of their Twitter giveaways.

Review:
May (Daughters of the Sea, 2) by Kathryn Lasky, 2011. Published by Scholastic Press.
So May, the second book in The Daugters of the sea, would have to be the biggest surprise that I got inmy mail this week. Why? Because I'm pretty sure that I didn't enter any contests for it, and it wasn't something I requested, but it sounds like a great read and I'm looking forward to reading it after Lent. Since my library has the first book I'll be checking it out to read before I start on this one.
A huge thanks to Scholastic for the surprise.

Library:

Fruits Basket 21 by Natsuki Takaya, 2006. Published by Tokoyopop.
Fruits Basket 22 by Natsuki Takaya, 2007. Published by Tokyopop.
Fruits Basket 23 by Natsuki Takaya, 2007. Published by Tokyopop.
Oh my gosh! I cannot believe that I am about to read the final three volumes of Fruits Basket. I am seriously going to miss this series once I'm done with it. One day I hope to have all 23 volume, which means I have 22 volumes left to buy.

As I said, I'm sad to see that I have come to the end of Fruits Basket, which has been one of my absolute favorite mangas to read since I first found it, but I'm also really excited to see how it all plays out in the end.
 I'm really quite excited that my library has the first book in The Daughters of the Sea series, which means as soon as Easter rolls around I'll check it out so that I can read book two.
I enjoyed Fade to Blue, so I'm really looking forward to getting to read You Killed Wesley Payne.
  Hope y'all have had an awesome week in books as well (Looking forward to seeing what everyone got this week...and maybe adding to my wishlist).

  6. A YA Noir Mystery, hmmm? That sounds interesting. Reminds me of the movie "Brick".
