Second Half of February 2020 Mail Haul

The second half of February was an exciting time for mail!! First off, a huge THANK YOU to Tor Books for hosting the contest that I won for this epic prize themed around An Illusion of Thieves!  I was not expecting this at all and am now super excited to work on my forgery calligraphy skills.  And the book sounds like something I will love.  Here’s hoping I can fit it into my busy March reading schedule 🙂

Late August 2019 Book Mail – From Publishers, #Booksfortrade, Kickstarter, and for Penned Con

The last couple of weeks for me have been interesting as I’m starting my evening hours at my new job and am away from home most of the week.  Because of that I haven’t had a chance to thank all the publishers and people who have sent books my way recently.  So here goes!

A great big THANK YOU to Ace Books for sending an arc of one of my most anticipated fall releases, Novice Dragoneer by E.E. Knight, and a final copy of Juliet Marillier’s newest book The Harp of Kings.  I also received an arc early, which I haven’t had a chance to read so chances are I’ll have a giveaway for the final copy when I do get it read 🙂

September #OTSPsecretsister and other Book mail

At the end of last week, I received a fabulous September secret sister package featuring a childhood favorite movie and a full-color manga that has Marie from The Aristocats 🙂  My secret sister is hitting it out of the park, and this is only the second month!  It also reminded me that I haven’t done a book haul post in many weeks, so here’s all the goodies I’ve received from various places.

Book Haul, #otspsecretsister, and Goodies for August 2018

It’s been awhile again since I’ve shared the goodies that I’ve picked up.  Here’s my last OTSP Secret Sister package from last round from my “sister” Crystal 🙂  She very much so spoiled me with all these hot chocolate flavors and adorable eeveelution bookmarks that she made!  And I’m excited to get caught up with this series as this is the final book.

Next up is some trades and my first granted bookish wish.  I love The Testing and wish Netflix or someone would make a movie or series out of this one!

The top row of the first pic and the following pic are all from work over the last month or so.  I’m really excited to read like all of them!  Then the second row includes 2 bookish wishes, a trade, and an art print that I paid for.  Thanks everyone!

And, since it slipped in at the end of the month.  Here’s my amazing August secret sister package from my new sister, going by the name, Mrs. Peacock!  I can’t wait to dig in, and those truffles are fantastic 🙂
