In My Mailbox [3]

Inspired by the fabulous Alea and meme'd by the awesome Kristi...

I received my Surprise Shrinking Violet Prize Pack, which was super exciting. Really awesome stuff; the little notebook and card are adorable. Getting lip gloss and bath bubbles from Victoria's Secret made me feel all
grown up ;) And isn't the guitar/boombox/CD/casettes design just so
retro-chic? Love it.




I also got three autographed book plates from Cynthea Liu for The Great Call of China, and a bookmark & receipe card. As well as a Paris Pan takes the Dare postcard thing.

Speaking of which, pop over by her blog, I believe she's offering Paris Pan bookplates in honour of her upcoming release!

*Thanks Cynthea!


Mates, Dates: The Secret Story - Cathy Hopkins & Ten Stations - Jenny Valentine

A double book in honour of World Book Day.


*Thanks Jenny!






Buffalo Gal - Laura Pedersen
Buffalo Gal is Laura Pedersen's memoir of growing up in Buffalo, New York, in the 70s. She describes her upbringing in a cold, quirky town with humor and just the right amount of nostalgia. From the drab institutional architecture to the folly of owning a white car in a city prone to lake-effect blizzards, Pedersen paints an entertaining picture of life in a place where winter lasts nine months.

*Thanks
Badger Books!

Ranger's Apprentice 6: Siege of the Macindaw - John Flanagan
In this desolate northern fief, where can Will find the fighting men he needs to overcome the traitorous Sir Keren and his band of criminals? Across the border, the fierce Scotti tribesmen are waiting for the signal that Castle Macindaw is in friendly hands, and the way is clear to mount a full-scale attack. Time is running out. Will's courage and ingenuity - and the arrival of an old friend - may be the only things that stand in their way. Will is determined to rescue Alyss - even if it means laying siege to an enemy castle!

So what was in your mailbox this week?
