Boy did I have a great week!  Not only did I get some prize wins and review books, but I also got a lot of my orders from PaperBackSwap in. PLUS, my awesome Book Fairy(who asked to not be named) sent me some great reads! MY BOOK FAIRY IS AWESOME!!! *(insert a happy dance and lots of clapping)* I can't wait to read them!

In My Mailbox is found over at The Story Siren

These are my contest wins! I won a SIGNED copy of Forgive My Fins from the author plus a Mermaid Spa pack that came with some nail polish and bath salts. It also came with bookmarks and a temp. tattoo.  The rest were from the Mother's Day contests that were floating around from Hatchette Book Group. Thank you to both!

These I received from Paper Back Swap. Some of them I already have read and wanted to get some for my new tour site Not Forgotten Tours.

These are the books I received for review. I am reading Night Shade now for Around the World Tours and I am amazed by this book! I am loving it.  Yes, above that book is The Haunted by Jessica Verday. It is the second book in The Hollow series. I can't wait to read that one!

These are from my AWESOME book fairy!!! Isn't it amazing! THANK YOU!!! You Rock!!!

That's what I got in the mail this week. What did everyone else get?
