(Meme) The Mailbox Post (May21st to 26th)

Can you believe its time for another IMM post? Where is the time going? Its hard to believe that its almost the end of May. Well actually this is the last weekend of May  and its a long weekend for my Us friends. Happy Memorial Day to you.

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.

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.

The host for May is Martha from Reviews by Martha’s Bookshelf a blogger that I have been following for the longest time now. Be sure to check her out.

The host for June will be Sassy Brit who blogs over at Alternative Read’s .

Quite a few bloggers have started there own mailbox features and one of them is Tynga’s Reviews. She is a local blogger and a super sweet person. If you haven’t checked out Tynga’s blog you really should. (Before you leave a comment about me supporting this please be sure to read official launch )

Here is what I bought and got for review this past week.

This was the second to last scholastic order for this school year so I wanted to take advantage of some sales they had and I ordered:
-Usborne 100 science experiments (thought this would be perfect to do on those rainy summer days)
– Wish & Wishful Thinking by Alexandra Bullen (this was packaged together for $9.99)
– Cloaked in  REd by Vivian Vande Velde
– Phineas and FErb Thrill o Rama
– Big Nate Boredom buster by Lincoln Peirce
– Big Nate Goes for Broke #4 by Lincoln Peirce
– Pokemon Challenge by Tracey West
– Pokemon Black & White three book set with Stickers Sandile in Trouble/Ash’s Triple Threat/ Emolga Makes Mischief

And then we went to this little indie bookstore and Michael bought 100 paper airplaces to fly and we nabbed some bookmarks.

Also not pictured as I forgot about them until I was picking up the books to write this post. I went to Costco last week and picked up: Cassandra Clare’s City of Lost Souls for $14 hardcover compared to the full price. While I was there I also had to pick up Fifty Shades,book 2 and 3 because of http://parajunkee.com/ read a long. I have been reading her read a long daily posts and when I saw the first book at the book sale I went to,  I had to pick it up and pretty much devoured it within a day and a half and I needed to finish the series and they had them for $9.99 so I thought it was a pretty good deal considering that they are regular $18 in a bookstore. Is anyone else reading them?

Here are the books I got for review:

– Don’t Laugh at Giraffe (super cute story that I can’t wait to read when I go back to the library in the fall)
– Dark Side of Valor by Alicia Singleton (I am on a blog tour for this)
– One Perfect Summer by Paige Toon just showed up for review from S&S UK (thank you S&S UK)

Then from Thomas Allen & Son I got a lovely package and it contained finished copies of Pilgrims Don’t wear Pink and Mister Death’s Blue Eyed Girls. Thanks so much Thomas Allen for this surprise package.
Freebies: (not pictured)
– I am part of the Metro & Moi program and I got a $36 gift certificate for the past three months of shopping there. I love getting these because its an added bonus when I grocery shop along with the bonus point coupons.

I hope you had a good week and happy reading. See you next week.
