In My Mailbox-Ontario Blog Meet Up Edition

In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren (yayKristi) Each week we post about books we receive by mail and other ways. It's always fun to visit other blogs and their mailboxes.

This week and Last week were fabulous. 

Last week I had coffee with my book fairy and she brought me a lovely new hard cover edition:

The Last Dragonslayer by Jasper Fforde

Another book fairy gave a presentation at my library and I picked up:

Fateful by Claudia Gray 

Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi   - I'm freaking out!

In the mail from Scholastic

IBoy by Kevin Brooks
 -be sure to check out the synopsis on this one-it's fantastic -

First Day On Earth by Cecil Castellucci
-I heard a book talk about the First Day on Earth and I'm really looking forward to reading it-

Ontario Book Blogger Meet-up
This was a fabulous event and I'm so excited to post the pictures and share the days happenings.
 Look for a post soon. Meanwhile, we had wonderful publisher, Indigo, and Kobo support.

Last but not least I found these cool book marks at Chapters

It's actually a pad of card stock book marks- 25 in each package with room to write your notes and thoughts!! (5.00 each) I loved them so I bought two!!

I'm feeling so happy today, maybe because the sun is shining, maybe because I know how truly lucky I am.

What was in your mailbox today?

p.s. my new IMM graphic was designed by the amazing GREADS. Thank you <3
