In My Mailbox/Mailbox Monday & Books Bought #41

Its Monday so that means its another In My Mailbox/Mailbox Monday post. I am also going to throw in my Books Bought meme. This post can lead to excessive book buying, toppling TBR piles or longer To buy lists.

In My Mailbox is a Sunday feature that Kristi from The Story Siren hosts and you can always see a ton of great books that she receives each week and this week is no exception. So go and check it out.

Mailbox Monday is a Monday feature that Marcia from Printed Page and you can see what she got this past week as well.

If you want to take part all you have to do is post what you got the past week in the mail and go and leave your link on their blogs.

This is what I got last week:

I took part in the twitter launch party for The Cinderella Society. It was alot of fun and thanks to Kay Cassidy for taking the time out of her busy schedule to do this. Here is my prize win: a silver shoe bookmark, a honorary Cindy member, magnet, two little cards (not sure what they are called) two book markers, a signed bookplate and a hand written note.


The Secret Lives of Princesses by Philippe Lechermeier and Illustrated by Rebecca Dautremer. This picture doesn’t do the book justice its absolutely beautiful. I have to say I think this is my all time favorite picture book. I love the illustrations.

The Pony Whisperer: The Word on The Yard (BK1) by Janet Rising. A brand new series being released in the US by Sourcebooks/Jabberwacky in June.

Eating Local: The cookbook inspired by America’s Farmers by Janet Fletcher

Books Bought is a meme that I am hosting. If you want to take part all you have to do is list the books you buy either weekly, bi-weekly, monthly etc and then come back to my latest books bought post and leave a comment and I will go and check out what books you bought.

The daughters by Joanna Philbin
Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles (hoping to meet her at BEA)
SAHM I am by Meredith Efken (bargain book)
Wonderous Strange by Lesley Livingston

Two I bought with a Chapters gift card I found in my purse and two were Mother’s day gifts.

So this is what I got, what about you?

    My mailbox

  4. You’ve got some good things, Cindy. I want to read PERFECT CHEMISTRY soon. I bought a copy of it, so no excuses. 🙂

    I think THE DAUGHTERS looks interesting. I’ll be watching for what you think about it.

  5. Happy Reading!

  6. The Cinderella Society gifts are so cute! Enjoy all your new treasures.

  7. Cindy, you are too funny! You found a Chapters gift card in your purse? What a great find! Makes me want to go digging in my bottomless bag and see what treasures I will find…or not.

  8. The Eating Local cookbook looks good. Also, how clever is the title SAHM I Am 🙂 Have a great week!

  9. Congrats on your win! =)

    Hmm, Wonderous Strange . . . Think I’ll have to read that at some point. As for Perfect Chemistry, for some reason, I remember reading somewhere that it has mixed reviews. Maybe I’m thinking of another book instead.

  10. I’ll be beyond jealous and waiting to hear all of the details if you get the chance to meet Simone Elkeles! 🙂

  11. You found a Chapters GC in your purse!! You struck gold! :=)
