In My Mailbox (10) & Second Hand Saturday! A Book-A-Week Giveaway #48!

We decided that since we do Second Hand Saturday every week, and we've started doing In My Mailbox, that we would try out combining the two.  If you're only here for IMM, feel free to skip the giveaway, and just watch the video.  If you're here for Second Hand Saturday, this week's challenge is to WATCH THE VIDEO and do the challenge at the bottom of the post. 



(If you've been here before, scroll down for this week's challenge in red)
Welcome to Second Hand Saturday!! In an attempt to clear our bookshelves, and pass on great used books to our stalkers followers, Amy, Kit, Abigaile, Austin and I have decided to hold weekly giveaways of some of the books on our bookshelves! Every Saturday, we will post the books available, and the following Saturday, we will announce the winner and our next challenge. The winner will get to choose a book from the list and we will ship it to that lucky person! Each week we will have a different challenge to complete (see below). YOU MUST BE A FOLLOWER TO ENTER!  Open Internationally.  Ends at 10:00 pm EST the following Friday!

  1. This list of books keeps getting better and better! Thanks for the giveaway guys :)

    GFC: pepsivanilla14

  2. AMY!!! I love the (Gan)green nails!

    Fave quote: "He's not just bad; he's abusive. That's my issue."-- Andye

    And, of course, "Bad shaving accident."--Amy

    You ladies have great hair, you know that?

  3. more books and more recommendations and more headache (for me !! *LoL*). Thanks Guys..

  4. I'm not sure if you meant the link for the review to be there but it's not. I can find it but I thought I'd let you know :)

  5. I can't find the review, is there something wrong with the link or is it just me?

  6. I was just thinking that, you girls do have really pretty hair! I get the Patch thing, theres' always quite a bit of discussion about it and I didn't realise until much later.Fantastic books!

  7. Something is wrong with the review link... can't find it so I just commented here instead. I did the extra entries btw. Hoping my entry counts.

  8. Anna Dressed In Blood!! Wildefire!! Ahhh! *contains jealousy*

    Haha another awesome video this week. I don't think a Reading Teen IMM is complete without Andye having physically abused Amy in some form :P

    But for the record -
    "He's not just bad, he's abusive. That's my issue."
    "Oh, you mean physically, like you are?" - Andye, you just got owned LOL.

  9. Review link isn't working (as others have already observed) - I'll come back again later for the comment there!

  10. Interesting IMM this week, ladies.

    Question: Have you two ever had totally different opinion on a book--where one loved it and the other hated it?

  11. I know everyone has said this, but no link!

  12. No working link :( Does this still count? Great giveaway by the way!

  13. AH! You got Wildefire!!! (and right after our twitter chat
    I should be getting Anna Dressed in Blood from Tor, it looks so good!
    (was that a gray hair?????)

  14. Whoa! That's a lot of books to giveaway! Great IMM vlog too!

    My IMM goes up tomorrow, so be sure to stop by!

    Old Follower
    Jessica@a GREAT read

  15. Hey, guys, sorry about the link. MY B!!

    It's fixed now, but if you commented already (above this comment) then we will count it! ;-]

  16. Agree with you on Hush, Hush, but not necessarily the same reasons. Crescendo annoyed me more if I remember correctly.

  17. Oooh, Wildfire!I can't wait to see your thoughts on that one. I got Enclave this week too. :)

  18. You got so many great books. I bet you can't wait to read them all. I like the green nail polish too. Sweet.

  19. Thanks for the giveaway. Lots of good books you are giving away.

  20. First: was that a grey hair??? huahuahauahuah I laughed so hard that I cried!

    Second: The Exiled Queen ROCKS!!!

    Third: I want the Enclave and the creepy hand!

    Forth: Ana Dressed in Blood sound and looks so cool, I'll wait for your review.

    I want Demonglass!!!!!!!!!! Why are you giving yours away? Is it for me, right? Who do I have to kill his time? (let me kill Ana (the one dressed in blood, she looks pretty much dead already, not much of a trouble there... I'm guessing...) =P

    LOVE YA!!! =)

  21. What a great book haul. Anna Dressed in Blood looks super creepy.

    I hope it doesn't say THAT is for fans of The Hunger Games! Because then I'd have to read the series just to find out what kind of fans these books attract!

    I spent the entire 2nd book mad at Patch. Can't wait to read your review!

    And of course a die hard fan of Wildefire.

  22. OMG you've got Anna Dressed in Blood! GO READ IT NOW because I'm crazy to know if it's good! I love that cover! So Supernatural feelings! :)

    I hated Crescendo, it totally ruined Hush, Hush! =(

  23. Wow, great book haul! I got BETWEEN by Cyndi Tefft too! :) And I'm very jealous. Enclave? Wildefire?

    Haven't read Hush, Hush yet. I probably should.

    "Bad shaving accident." You guys crack me up every time! And I don't think you have gray hair, Andye!

  24. A great pile of books! They all seem great. I can't wait to read Anna dressed in Blood :)

  25. Another great IMM. your Enclave seems so shining. The cover looks so great. Or is it just because of the Light?

  26. I'm really excited to read Enclave... I love the cover. I also love the green nail polish :) Great week for you!

    Here is my mailbox!

  27. I love Amy's nails.

    And I also didn't like Hush Hush, Andye!

    You should read it & review it, maybe you've changed your mind, that way I can know if I'll like it. :P

    Awesome IMM!!! :)

  28. Vicky,

    About a million people have said it's even worse, so.....ugh! :P

  29. Thanks for including WILDEFIRE in your IMM--which by the way, has the best, most elaborate intro for an IMM I've ever seen. Happy reading!

    P.S. I laughed out loud at the leg-shaving accident joke.

  30. Oh great to know! I actually feel sorry because the covers are sooo pretty! But I can't stand it. I just don't like the book.

  31. This is the first of your IMM i've watched and let me just say OMG, it cracked me up! I've watched a lot of different people's IMM's and yours is by far one of the best. So funny.

    Btw, Crescendo is WORSE than Hush, Hush. I actually didn't mind Hush, Hush, but I wanted to beat Nora in this one with her moping and whining...anyway not so good.
