In My Mailbox 35

meme hosted by The Story Siren

I know I normally post my IMMs on Sundays, but since tomorrow will be the kick-off to my Paris Month, I have a special post dedicated for that! Be sure to hang around all month.. I’ve got some exciting things planned for this month-long blog event! And all the Paris books I’ve been accumulating and hinting at for the past few months, I’m going to reveal them all in a Paris edition of In My Mailbox, scheduled to go next week while I’m there!

If you missed it from this past week, check out my recap of the wine & cheese event held by Penguin Canada and Chatelaine Magazine for Gurjinder Basran’s book Everything Was Good-bye. I also finally read Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight – and here’s the review!



The Book of Blood and Shadow by Robin Wasserman <– For read & review from Random House Canada

Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles <– Leant to me by Lives In Heels

The Immortal Rules (Blood of Eden, #1) by Julie Kagawa <– For read & review from Harlequin Teen

The Gods of Gotham by Lyndsay Faye <– For read & review from Penguin Canada

Abandon (Abandon Trilogy, #1) by Meg Cabot <– Bought at BMV for only $4.99!

Everything Was Good-bye by Gurjinder Basran <– Received during the wine & cheese event, and got signed!

I had won a paperback copy of A Discovery of Witches from @PenguinPbks, which arrived this week with some cute buttons! (I’ve read it already on my kobo and quite enjoyed it!)

And then strangely enough on the same day, I received the same book in the goodie bag at the Penguin/Chatelaine event on Wednesday! (along with a lot of other amazing stuff!)

I was also sent two leather bracelets to use for a future Masque of the Red Death giveaway! Thank you Bethany Griffin!

AND I had tweeted the adorable shirt I wanted from Mental Floss a while ago.. finally sucked it up and ordered it (wish I thought to do it earlier since they were out of fitted smalls, but the medium doesn’t look TOO big..)  but it’s SO PERFECT for me! 😀

What did you guys get this week? Leave your link and I’ll be sure to check it out!


  1. Oooh I LOVE that shirt! Nice snag on Abandon! I love Meg Cabot! :)

  2. Great stuff this week. I just recently read The Immortal Rules and loved it. Love those bracelets for the Masque of the Red Death giveaway, they are so cool! That t-shirt is awesome!! I need one. :)

  3. OMG that t-shirt is amazing. It’s so perfect for you!

    The Masque of the Red Death bracelets are so pretty! I have a few to give away as well, and I LOVE them.

    Sounds like you had a great time at the event…I wish Ottawa had more bookish events. Hopefully I can make it to a few of Toronto’s this year.

    Have a fantastic time in Paris. Super excited for your Paris month, and all your blog posts when you get back.

    Enjoy the new books! Immortal Rules looks amazing.

  4. Excellent haul! I am in love with the eye shimmer cream! Wore it the next day and loved it <3

The Book of Blood and Shadow is high up on my *I can’t wait to read* list, but I’ve been hearing that it can be a crazy slow read. I’m interested in what you think of it! Also, I LOVE that shirt!!!

    You got yourself some interesting loot this week! I’ll check out The Gods of Gotham and A Discovery of Witches in our local library. I love the shirt, and is that a Masque of the Red Death bookmark? If it is, I like it a lot. Enjoy your books!
