Bringing in the Loot

This is part of the In My Mailbox series hosted by The Story Siren. This meme allows book bloggers around the web to showcase what awesomeness we bought, swapped, borrowed, or got this week. Check out my loot below!

So, as you can see, I am overloaded with loot this week!

Won:
Ninja Awesomeness from Tales of the Ravenous Reader:
Sliding on the Edge by C. Lee McKenzie (signed)
The Prophecy of the Sisters by Michelle Zink (signed)
Ash by Malinda Lo
Fairy Tale by Cyn Balog
Struts and Frets by Jon Skovron
Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler
Silver Phoenix by Cindy Pon (signed)
Eyes Like Stars by Lisa Mantchev

Night World: A Fan Guide I won from The Story Siren

Library:
Boneshaker by Cherie Priest
Good Girls by Laura Ruby

Bought:
Rage by Julie Anne Peters (Just read the description, it sounds absolutely intense and fascinating.)
From Goodreads:
Johanna is steadfast, patient, reliable; the go-to girl, the one everyone can count on. But always being there for others can’t give Johanna everything she needs—it can’t give her Reeve Hartt. Reeve is fierce, beautiful, wounded, elusive; a flame that draws Johanna’s fluttering moth. Johanna is determined to get her, against all advice, and to help her, against all reason. But love isn’t always reasonable, right? In the precarious place where attraction and need collide, a teenager experiences the dark side of a first love, and struggles to find her way into a new light.

Hearts at Stake by Alyxandra Harvey
Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison (I have never read these and decided to give them a shot. I'm sure I'll become addicted, so luckily there are a lot of them.)

That's what I got, what loot did this week bring to you?
