"In My Mailbox" is a weekly event hosted by The Story Siren where you share the books and other nice book-related goodies you received in the mail.
Since I didn't get to put up last week's IMM post, I am combining it with this week's.
Here is a picture - two pictures, actually - of my treasures:
For some reason, I couldn't get the camera to focus on the bookmark, so that's why the second photo is a little bit blurry.
In my own mailbox I received this amazing copy of "Fugitives" which is signed and personalized by none other than the incredible Alexander Gordon Smith himself. I won this book during a contest on his Lockdown facebook page. This is actually the first book of the Escape From Furnace series I can call my own, and I couldn't be any happier. I am so thrilled to have this book in my collection and I cannot wait to dive back into the story.
Another goodie I got last week was the beautiful "A Touch Mortal" bookmark, which also happens to be signed by the wonderful Leah Clifford. I won it at the twitter #ATMparty, and it's just so gorgeous.
The timing couldn't have been any more perfect either, because I received both the bookmark and Scott Tracey's "Witch Eyes" on the same day.
"Witch Eyes" didn't technically land in my mailbox, BUT since my library didn't have any copies, I requested it. They had it sent in from the library in Ottawa and so, it came to their mailbox to be given to me to read it. Yes, I realize it might be a little bit of a stretch, but hey, who's paying attention to those minor details anyway...
My Reading Pile #2
"My Reading Pile" is an idea created by fiktshun where you share the books you picked to read for the upcoming week.
I'm reading "Witch Eyes" right now since I only have it for a limited time, and am hoping to finish it by Monday or Tuesday at the latest. Then I was going to read "The Forsaken", but I might have to squeeze in another book first, because I just realized I am less than two weeks away from my next Book Club meeting, and I haven't even started with the book for it yet. So, after "Witch Eyes" I will probably be reading "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society" by Annie Barrows and Mary Ann Shaffer, before taking on "The Forsaken".
My wishful thinking read for this week is definitely "Fugitives", there is no doubt about it. If I could, I would pick it up RIGHT NOW, but I don't want to have to bring "Witch Eyes" back to the library without having finished it first, especially since I am loving it already.
