In My Mailbox (#63)

In My Mailbox was created by Kristi at The Story Siren. It's a perfect way to see who's reading and review what. Awesome! 




Ok, so I've been totally terrible at doing IMM.  Oops.  But for this IMM.... Well.  I had something really really really REALLY special.  Actually, TWO really special things...
The first:
A NEW ROOM!!  With...  Floating Bookshelves, a wall of book postcards and a gorgeous bookcase with pretty lights!  And, like, a bed and chest of drawers and whatever.  These are all that count though. ;)

 

Second, though, was the most exciting...  My family just got a new puppy, who is the most gorgeous, cutest thing ever!! :D  
Her name is Dot (or Dottie) and she's ten weeks old on Monday and she's a Goldendoodle.  And already we love her to pieces and already she knows it!  ;)


Oh, and I got books too.  Some very, very EXCITING books!!  I'll go onto that, now...  Sorry for the distraction! ;)

Fantastic haul! I got Out of the Easy this week and I cannot wait to start reading it. I really want to read This Is What Happy Looks Like, as well as the rest of the books you received! Those floating bookshelves look really cool, I need to get myself some of those!

Cliona said...

Hollie: Thanks! It looks amazing, doesn't it?! And I love my floating bookshelves - I'm gonna have a wall of them too! ;)
Cliona: Thanks! She is - although she has crazy moments when she thinks hands/feet/clothes/hair are prey. It's hilarious but man are her teeth sharp!! ;) xx

Dot is so, so sweet! You're so lucky to have her!

Your shelves are also really awesome and I'm quite jealous of them. :)

You've received so many books! As they say, so many books, so little time and so I hope you manage to get through them all!

Happy reading! :)
