IMM (3): TLA 2012 Edition

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren where bloggers post about the books they have received in the past week whether for review, purchased, or checked out from the library.

I was lucky enough to go to the Texas Library Association's annual conference. There I was able to pick up some awesome books! I am just posting pictures for now because I am still trying to catch up from moving and being gone for a week. So excited to share what I got with you! I also started my first giveaway from my haul here: the ARC of Fated by Alyson Noel.
Here are the snapshots of the books I got while I was there:

I snagged some discounted audiobooks!
