In My Mailbox (23)

IMM is a weekly meme host by The Story Siren and inspired by Pop Culture Junkie. IMM is where you can show off the amazing books you got that week. This week I decided to challenge the UPS, USPS, and FedEX. The challenge was to see who could deliver the most packages to me. Now on to the awesome books I got this:
The Dark Divine by Bree Despain (bought: and I got it cheap on BN.com for about $5! Sad to say though it did not arrive in perfect condition the back is all bent up.)
Night Star by Alyson Noel (Bought: Also from BN.com and the pages in the middle are protruding out. I was shocked to see the book in this condition. Has anyone received a book that was not properly trimmed?)
Wither by Lauren DeStefano (For review; second copy! What do you think about a giveaway for this one? Thanks to S&S.)
Haven by Kristi Cook bookmarks! I cannot wait to read Haven now with one of these bookmarks. If only I had a copy now! In the near future I will be giving some of these bookmarks. Now that I'm thinking about which is the right way to say bookmark in plural form: Bookmarks or Bookmarkers?)
Across the Universe by Beth Revis (2 COPIES! Holy Cow! In one week! As you can see they are two different versions; I think its awesome. The one on the left I received from the Publisher and the one on the right is the one I won from the author herself. Both copies are so pretty. I'm in cover love two both!) Below is the swag I got for winning Beth's ATU Tour.
ATU Watch
Bookmarks
Stickers
Bookplates
A note from Beth
And down below more awesomeness from Beth
Star candy
Buttons
Star bracelets
I'd like to give a big, scratch that, HUGE THANKS to Beth Revis and Penguin!

As for the challenge here are the results:

UPS: 2 Packages
USPS: 2 Packages
FedEx: 0 Packages

I was hoping that they would all tie. As I was expecting two more packages but apparently they will be coming from the USPS.
Also I thought for the second time that this deserves a Vlog; unfortunately I have a cold so that wouldn't be a great way to introduce myself to you lovely followers.

Anyways. What did you get in your mailbox?
