New To My Book Closet

It's that time of the week again. Time to show you what bookish goodies made their way into my home and book closet (to be saved from the evil book eating cat monster named Aria). This is inspired by the various "mailbox" posts out there (eg. In My Mailbox by The Story Siren, and Stacking the Shelves by Tynga's Reviews).

My mailbox was super busy this week. Insanely busy. The kind of busy that makes you incredibly thankful for the books you get to read.

First up is a book that resulted in much fangirling, squealing and generally scaring the heck out of my cat after I opened it. I have already read this book, and it is going to be the book for winter 2015 (perhaps even the book of 2015). It's going to be the new hot thing, that's for sure!

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard (goodreads)

Thank you to Harper Collins Canada for this particular book! So thankful I got to read it!

Next up is a package from Raincoast Books that is from their Spring/Summer Blogger Preview. I was excited to be able to virtually attend, and Raincoast outdid themselves with these amazing swag bags.

The Forgetting by Nicole Maggi (goodreads)
The Truth About Us by Janet Gurtler (goodreads)

Also included was a Fairest poster, and mirror. The mirror is amazing. I also snagged some fun buttons, a lip balm for Katie Finn's Broken Hearts, Fences and Other Things To Mend. Oh, and a bookmark with my name and blog name on it! A big thank you to Melissa at Raincoast for the event and these amazing goodies.

Next up is a book that, surprising nobody, caused me to have a legit meltdown when I had it in my hands.

I Was Here by Gayle Forman (goodreads)

My friend Kelly, from Kellyvision, kindly sent this to me after she had read it. I am itching to start this right now, but have to wait. Hoping to sneak it in over Christmas though! Thanks again, Kelly!

Lastly, I received an amazing Christmas package from my friend Christy, from The Reader Bee. It is filled with all kinds of perfect things! I loved everything.

Along For The Ride by Sarah Dessen (goodreads)
The Kiss of Deception by Mary E Pearson (goodreads)

She also included an adorable ornament that is a blogger with a cat. It's pretty much only missing the glass of wine to be complete. She also sent me a fun wine glass that I fully intend on using this holiday season! Thank you so much, Christy!

Happy weekend, and happy reading!

  3. I can tell you that Red Queen is amazing. I'm reading my e-arc of it. It's amazing. So I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did. The gifts were awesome.

  4. I just ordered Broken Hearts Fences and Other Things to Mend last week, and it should arrive tomorrow! I'm so excited to read it.

    I'm thrilled that you like your package! The kids picked out the wine glass, they said you needed one because of your blog name. haha! Enjoy, and Merry Christmas!

    1. Tell your kids that I love it, and thank you from me! They are adorable!


I love comments. Thank you for stopping by my blog and thank you even more for leaving me a comment.

I have decided to make this an awards free blog. I appreciate the gesture, and love that you thought of my blog, however I simply can't pass them along as required.
