In My Mailbox: TXLA Edition

In case you haven't heard, TXLA was this past week. Sadly, I could not go all 4 days, but Cynthia from A Blog About Nothing and I did make it there for one day. And boy are we glad we did. Not only did we snag some awesome goodies, we also met some amazing authors (Carrie Ryan, James Dashner, Gayle Forman, David Leviathan, and many more). BUUUT, the very best part was hanging out with fellow Literary Lonestars and Blogger Buddies. I've got pictures and will be posting about the event very soon. Till then, let's get this IMM started!
