In My Mailbox #19-11

In My Mailbox is a wonderful meme hosted weekly by The Story Siren - I love this meme as it enables me to give thanks for the wonderful books and book related items that I have received in the week either for myself or for the school library. I am constantly touched by other peoples generosity. I appreciate every single thing I receive and share the book love a s much as I possibly can.

 Won on Twitter from Harper Collins - all but one book is going in the school library

(little one has already wandered off with this book-me have Lost and Found on her shelf)

(always a popular author with both boys and girls in the library)

(how awesome is that - the pupils will be so pleased)

For Review:
(this sounds amazing - I have mermaid love at the moment)

 (I have already read this one - so cute - mermaids yay plus this was my surname before I got married)
 (sounds brilliant - look out for the trailer and an extract coming soon)

(squeeeeeee - I am so excited to read this - hoping it will help me win the lottery lol)

 Amazon pre-order:
(don't you just love it when much anticipated book arrive and you had forgotten ordering them )


Gifted from the fabulous Raimy at ReadaRaptor
I actually did an amazing impression of a goldfish for about 5 minutes when I opened the parcel

Gifted from the wonderful Viv at Serendipity

Notebook and beaded bookmark
How fabulous are they. I use notebooks to keep track of the comments I want to make about books. Such a beautiful and thoughtful gift.

If you have time please take a look at the Inspirational Message I posted yesterday, it really touched me deeply. I feel blessed to have so many wonderful people in my life, I wouldn't know what to do without you. Thank you for being at the other end of the keyboard *hugs*
