In My YA Mailbox (Feb. 6, 2011)

The weekly In My Mailbox post is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. It is fun to see what everyone else gets in their mailboxes, shopping bags, and library visits. Click on the link to The Story Siren's site to see the rules and join in the fun.
I guarantee that your TBR pile will grow when you see all the wonderful books everyone gets. You will discover lots of great blogs and lots of books that you won't be able to live without.

Welcome to week one of my book buying ban. Here is what arrived this week.
I received a review copy of Angel in My Pocket by Ilene Cooper from Ksenia. It sounds like a good middle grade story that is realistic fiction and not paranormal. This has a March 15, 2011 release date.

The Demon Trapper's Daughter by Jana Oliver was pre-ordered long before the ban. This book has gotten a lot of play around the blogs I follow and I am eager to read it for myself.
Vanished by Kristi Holl was a free download for my Kindle. It is a mystery and a realistic fiction story.

Dreaming Anastasia by Joy Preble. I think the subtitle says it all - a novel of love, magic, and the power of dreams. This was also a limited time free download for my Kindle. 

I think I had a good week. I almost kept to my book buying ban. However, my main goal was not to save money but to actually whittle down my TBR stack. Adding free books doesn't help to meet that goal. I need to try harder next week.

What did you get this week?
