In My Mailbox (21)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme started by Kristi over at The Story Siren that tells people what new books we've gotten over the week. All the links in this post go to the book's amazon page if you want more info on it. Here's what I got this week:

Downloaded from the awesome Net Galley:
Annexed by Sharon Dogar-Diary of Anne Frank from Peter's POV. As fascinated by all things Anne Frank as I am, I had to check this one out. Thank you Houghton Mifflin Books for this copy.
Once in a Full Moon by Ellen Schreiber-Yes, this is a new series started by the author of the hilarious Vampire Kisses series. It comes out December 28th. Thank you HarperCollins for the copy!

From the Library:
The Haunting of Charles Dickens by Lewis Buzbee-a ghost story/mystery staring Dickens? You know I'm there.
Guardian of the Dead by Karen Healey-Book I meant to read earlier this year.
Claire de Lune by Christine Johnson-See above.

Bought at store:
Zombies VS Unicorns by various authors-FINALLY got this book. Can't wait to read it. I bought it mostly because there are short stories in the Killer Unicorns verse and The Forest of Hands and Teeth verse. Plus it had tons of authors I love like Meg Cabot and Garth Nix and of course the ever awesome Holly Black.
I Am America and So Can You by Stephan Colbert.-Okay this won't be reviewed as it's nonfiction (technically...) but I had to share it because I'm a huge Stewart and Colbert fan (yes, I thought their rally was an awesome idea and it actually made me sad that I no longer live in the DC area...) and Borders had this for 4.99! Awesome, no?
Also not a link for this but I snagged a Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows bookmark as well. How excited are you guys for the movie? I'll be seeing it on my birthday (Nov. 23rd) if everything goes as planned. Expect a post here immediately after I see it.
