The Mailbox Post & Books Bought

Its hard to believe its that time of the week when you get to take a peek at what I bought (which was quite a bit) and what I got for review (which included some awesomeness). This is one of my all time favorite memes because its always nice to see what other great books everyone is getting although my wishlist always seems to grow after seeing what everyone gets.

Canada Post is slowly getting up to date on the backlog and apart from getting a package on Monday nothing else came in this week.

So to start off which is a little tease since I want you to wait to see what I got to review I will show you what I bought first. Earlier in the week I went to Chapters because I heard they had some great books on sale for $2 which actually turned out to be less because of my iRewards discount. So the first picture is what I bought and it only cost me $16.

-Jinx by Meg Cabot (I have read most of her adult books so I am curious about her YA books)
-Masquerade #2 by Melissa de la Cruz
-Revelations #3 by Melissa de la Cruz
-The Van Alen Legacy #4 by Melissa de la Cruz
-Zombie Blondes by Brian James
-Netbooks in easy steps
-Securing your PC in easy steps

Then another trip was made to Chapters because Michael wanted to get:

The Official Pokemon Guide Diamond and Pearl version for his DS Game

Then on the table I spotted The Complete Active Minds workbook for Grade 3 on sale and I couldn’t pass that up since its regularly priced at $20. So now there will be no more “I’m bored!”

Now for some awesomeness I received in the mail which was a total surprise so I have to send out a HUGE THANK YOU to Simon & Schuster Canada for sending them to me. I actually squeeled and did a happy dance when I opened the envelope.

I apologize for the poor quality of the pics. Not sure what happened as I couldn’t seem to get a clear shot.

-Fury by Elizabeth Miles (08/30/11 release)
-The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin (9/27/11 release)
-Witchlanders by Lena Coakley (8/30/11)
-Swear #2 by Nina Malkin (9/6/11 release)

Looking forward to reading these awesome titles in August and September.

So this is what I got in my mailbox this week, what about you?
