Good Morning everyone. Oh my gosh its been so long since I have actually gotten anything in the mail and I actually did a little happy dance when DH came in with the package.

I have to send out a huge thank you to Simon & Schuster Canada for sending these books my way. I completely forgot that I requested them with the Canada Post strike (we will know this week what is happening), summer vacation, various activities that Michael is taking part in and planner decorating. So this clearly was a nice surprise to get just before heading out on vacation.

I am currently in Toronto and will be heading home today. Fingers crossed I was good with book buying although I don’t know..I clearly can’t be trusted in a bookstore.

Anyways the books that I did get in the mail are:



I hope you all had a good book week and got some awesome books.

Good Morning everyone. Sorry that I have been basically MIA for the past little while but I have been busy the past few weeks with swimming lessons, afternoon parks program, volunteering at the library (Michael needs to do 20 hours of volunteer work as part of the academic plus program at high school) and vacation. There just doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day and usually after supper I end up crashing on the couch watching Corrie and the other summer games shows etc.

This month I have another big haul. I know I said that this was suppose to be a no spend month but as you can see I got carried away. I need an intervention!

Sorry there is no photos this time around as I am trying to get a few things printed before going to bed. I am meeting up with Tina from BookShipper for breakfast tomorrow as its our monthly get together.

I am late in getting this up as its been a chill kind of day. The only fun and exciting thing we did today was go and visit a lavender garden that is about 15 minutes from where I live. It was really nice to walk along the property to see some sand sculptures and gardens along with the lavender field. We also got to try a lavender drink which was really nice.

Anyways, I have no books this week as I haven’t really requested or accepted anything to review because Canada Post might be going on strike once again. The have 72 hours to file a strike date and nothing has been filed yet so we will get mail up until Tuesday of next week.

I hope you all have a good rest of the weekend and happy reading 🙂

There was no books in the mailbox this week and honestly I am okay with that since its giving me a chance to read the books I currently have sitting on my shelves.

Hope everyone had a good week and a great weekend. See you soon!

Good morning everyone. Sorry for being absent the last little while but things in real life have been happening and with the nicer weather slowly coming our way I have been busy trying to get things done in the house.

Michael is almost done with school. He goes in Monday and that will be his last day and them exams Wednesday and then the following Monday.

Anyways lets get into the books I received this past week. I am so excited to show them to you:

snowwhite

The first book is a ARC of a upcoming graphic novel called Snow White by Matt Phelan. This was a  win from Armchair BEA from a daily topic question. I have already read it and enjoyed it.
The next book is Juana & Lucas by Juana Medina and this is another armchair BEA win and it was from the daily topic question. This has also been read.

The next item I got was from a twitter event that happened during BEA and it was the #YAParty that was hosted by Liza Wiemer (the author of Hello),  Hannah from Irish Banana Review and Andye from Reading Teen.

The prize was a annotated copy of Hello along with a few goodies. I can’t wait to re-read Hello with all the annotations in the book.

So that is all I got this week. I hope you all have a good week.

It was a quiet mailbox week as you can see I didn’t get anything for review and that is okay.

I hope you have a good weekend and happy reading
