Me on In My Mailbox (63)

In My Mailbox is a bunch of weekly fun hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. :)

This might as well be the Canadian version of IMM this week. All the books I got are by Canadian authors. How often does this happen?? Never. ;)

This bit is just for people I know in Toronto. Are you going to Leah Bobet's book launch on the 22nd?? Can I send you my copy to get signed?? I will include money for shipping it back to me and for a new bubble envelope. I'm reading it right now and loving it and I'd love to have it all signed and pretty. :)

Since I was at a book event today, look for an event recap post soon. :)

Hmmm, I guess I don't have much to talk about this week. Oh, well. More room for books. :) And sorry for the dark picture. I only had one lamp on.
Above by Leah Bobet (I pre-ordered this because Chandra at IndigoTeenBlog adores it so much, plus it sounds so cool and different, plus the cover is gorgeous (why, yes, that is the CN Tower on the cover), plus since it's a debut novel I wasn't sure if it would be at Chapters on release day. And, apparently, it was. *head-desk* So I had to deal with that agonizing wait for it to come in the mail when I so wanted to drive down to the closest one with copies and snatch it up.)
Friends with Boys by Faith Erin Hicks (I read an e-galley of this and reviewed it. So much fun. A must-read graphic novel. :))
(I actually bought another book this week, but it's not for me. ;))

Under My Skin by Charles de Lint (from Penguin Canada) (Debating whether or not to save this for the blog event in May.)

To read & review: Under My Skin, Kill Me Softly, Gone, Gone, Gone, The Last Princess, The Vicious Deep, Struck, The Hunt, Fated, Shadow and Bone, This is Not a Test, Never Enough, and Romeo Redeemed. :)
