The Mailbox Post (April 2nd to 7th)

Since I am this months host of Mailbox Monday, I will be keeping the weekly Mailbox Monday Posts on top so that everyone can find the Mailbox post easily and leave their links. Please note that all new posts are following this one.

Happy Easter Everyone!

Can you believe its time for another IMM post? Where is the time going?

Mailbox Monday is a gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week and explore great book blogs. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.

(OMG! This is true. This past week I have added a ton of books to my ever growing wish list. )

Mailbox Monday is originally hosted by Marcia from A girl and her books and The Printed Page. In the summer of 2010 Marcia decided she needed a change in hosting and didn’t want to rely on one blogger alone to do it because its a lot of work so she decided to put Mailbox Monday on tour and so far with great success it has made monthly stops at more then a dozen blogs and this year is booked until the end. I will actually be hosting Mailbox Monday in April.

Another host for In My Mailbox is Kristi from The Story Siren.

Be sure to check out the above blogs to see what they and others got in their mailboxes this past week.

I am super excited because I am the host of Mailbox Monday for April. I am looking forward to discovering some new blogs this month. If you follow me please let me know so that I can go back and follow you. I have discovered so many new blogs this past week.

I don’t have a vlog this week just because its been so busy here. Its a long Easter weekend here and Michael had no school on Friday but we had to go to church to do the Way of The Cross and decorate the church and then after that he had to play in a tournament game.

Michael got his 5th goal of the season (the first one of the game) and got picked as player of the game. They won 8-1. He was so proud of that goal and achievement.

Saturday we decided to do Easter and celebrate Michael’s (early) 9th birthday with my family.

(Kings 4 means his hockey team and his number)

Oh my gosh I can’t believe my baby will be 9 in a few weeks. Where does the time go? I am truly blessed to have such an amazing son.

Then Sunday (today) we had to play our second tournament game and we won 2-1 so now we go into next Saturday. That will determine if we play on Sunday. I would love it if we could just because we have yet to win in a tournament game. Then hockey will be over. What will I do with my weekends?

Anways enough of my ramblings.

This past week I got NOTHING for review. Not a single thing came in my mail. HMMM I wonder what is up with that?

Although we did get some books given to us.

I got Everneath by Brodi Ashton from the Easter Bunny

Michael got: (this was a birthday present from his grandmother)
The Phineas and Ferb comic reader series:
-book 1 Nothing But Trouble
-book 2 The chronicles of Meap
-book 3 Hey, Where’s Perry?
-book 4 It’s About Time
-book 5 Quantum Boogaloo

So this is what I got, what about you?

  1. Hi Cindy and Michael,

    First of all, congratulations to Michael, for his award, for his great stack of books and for his birthday, your cake looks amazing, I hope it tasted as good!

    Cindy, ‘Everneath’ is not something that I would usually read, however I have to say that I love the title, the cover art and the synopsis, which is captivating.

    I hope that you enjoy your gift and that you have enjoyed a happy and peaceful Easter.
