In My Mailbox (100) Triple Digits, Oh My!

In My Mailbox, Inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie and hosted by Kristy of The Story Siren.
Won:
Glow (Sky Chasers, 1) by Amy Kathleen Ryan, September 27, 2011. Published by St. Martin's Griffin.
When I signed up to win Glow from the publisher I didn't get my hopes up on winning, so I was definitely pleasantly surprised when it came in the mail one day...plus I had totally forgotten that I'd entered.

Bought:
White Cat (Curse Workers, 1) by Holly Black, 2010. Published by Margaret K. McElderry .
After listening to the audio version of White Cat I knew I'd want to read it one day, so when I saw it on sale at the bookstore I went ahead and got myself a copy.

Foundling (Monster Blood Tattoo, 1) by D.M. Cornish, 2007 (originally published by 2006). Published by Speak.
A few years back I had seen Foundling while browsing through a bookstore, I thought it sounded good but never got around to buying it. So I finally got it and am quite excited about reading it...sometime in the near future.

Lulu Dark and the Summer of the Fox (Lulu Dark, 2) by Bennett Madison, 2006. Published by Razorbill.
Ya'll probably saw my review of Lulu Dark Can See Through Walls last month, well as you can see I enjoyed it so much that I bought the sequel (and a copy of book one to giveaway).

Library:
Cloaked by Alex Flinn, 2011. Published by HarperCollins.
 For the past few months I've seen Cloaked sitting on the shelf at the library, I would look at it and think about picking it up, and then move on. Well I decided that this time around I'd just check it out instead of staring at it. Hope it's good.

Goodbye, Nanny Gray (A Superintendent Bone Mystery) by Susannah Stacey, 1987. Published by Summit Books.
I was in the mood for a mystery and Goodbye, Nanny Gray sounded like it could be interesting, plus my sister was taking forever which left me with more time to grab more books then I probably needed.

Alice 19th: Jealousy 5 by Yuu Watase, 2004. Published by Viz Media.
I love this series and have been waiting impatiently for it to be checked back in so that can continue reading the series.

We Were There 3 by Yuki Obata, 2009 (originally published in 2003). Published by Viz Media (Shojo Beat).
Gah, the library only has volumes 3,4, and 6. Which means that yes, I started with volume 6 because online it was marked as volume one and I loved it so much I just deicded to check out what ever volumes they have and read them.

It was definitely a great book week for me this week, so many titles I cannot wait to delve into. Oh, wait, I've already read the majority of my library all ready. =)
Hope ya'll have had a great book week as well (leave your link and I'll drop by later).
