My mailbox this week!

This was a busy, busy week for my mailbox and me!
 
I received a big box of books from Hachette (Little Brown) from a request I made at ALA. 
I was absolutely ecstatic when it showed up this past week, because I've never gotten a box of books from a publisher and it was a really special feeling!
 
FOR REVIEW
Revived - Cat Patrick
Purity - Jackson Pearce
Ghost Knight - Cornelia Funke
The Last Princess - Galaxy Craze
 
TRADE
Girl in the Clockwork Collar (Steampunk Chronicles #2) - Kady Cross
Across the Universe - Beth Revis
Cybele's Secret (Wildwood #2) - Juliet Marillier
Between Shades of Gray - Ruta Sepetys
 
 
 Also, I found out of a bit of exciting news on Friday - there was a job I'd been offered that I really wanted, and I got it! I'm so excited to start this professional chapter of my life, but I may not be able to update as often as I have been. Please hang in there with me and keep me on your blog roll. I'm not entirely gone, and I'll be posting when I can!

What's your new job??
And I hope you get to read Between Shades of Gray ASAP! I'm referring to that book by it's nickname "Should-have-won-the-Printz." It's phenomenal!
