In My Mailbox (14) & More!!!

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren, where we all share what we got during the week!

I was a super good girl this week and didn't purchase anything new! :) (Ok, so maybe it had something to do with the fact that book depository wasn't delivery to the US for most of the week.) And nothing new for review, but that is all ok---because I always have my loverly library. This week I brought home these three: The Girl who Chased the Moon by Sarah Addison Allen
Wildwood Dancing by Juliet Marillier
Almost Perfect by Brian Katcher

To my readers: Do you prefer the description to be posted right here on the blog or do you mind clicking the link to Goodreads to find out the details? Just curious!! :)

Ok so my haul was not huge this week, and I don't mind at all because it was an exciting book-related week all the same!!! WHY, you ask? Well, my hubby built my early mother's day gift, that's why!! Take a look!!A FULL WALL of BOOKSHELFY GOODNESS!! Before this, I had one small store bought bookshelf in that far corner there, where my sad books were piled two deep fighting for space. NOW they will have room to breath! My head is spinning with how I will organize them!! Yay for my handy hubby!! I love my new shelves!! I can't wait to start filling them!!

OH and last but not least..I did get one more new thing this week,
although not book related. A new addition to my family!!
Introducing Little Bear ♥♥♥

Hope everyone had a great week!! Link me up to what you got! :)


  1. Awesome shelves!
    Your puppy is adorable! Cute name.

  2. The shelves look great--big husband points for him! And the puppy is so cute I just want to pick him up and squeeze him!

  3. Hope you like Almost Perfect. I really enjoyed it. I'm also interested to read your review of The Girl Who Chased the Moon. I don't know much about it. Happy reading. :] That puppy is ADORABLE!

  4. PUPPY AND BOOKCASES aren't you lucky! He's so cute! Iv'e been wanting to read Almost Perfect. Can't wait to see what you think.

  5. Ooh, lovely books and congrats on not buying anything, hehe! As for book details, I don't really have a preference - a link to Goodreads is just fine. :)
    The bookshelves look FANTASTIC!!! Do post a picture once you're done organizing them! :)
    Awww and that puppy is too cute! :D

  6. I am absolutely green with envy about those shelves! I mean, wow. I've always wanted something like that, and one of those ladders that slides along the wall. I'm a bit obsessed. And what a cute puppy, too. :)

    I really want to read Almost Perfect. Definitely looking forward to your review of that one.

  7. Congrats on your exemplary self-control for not buying any more books ;-) (this week I was also good, didn't buy any books..but bought some DVDs..:-D lol)

    Wow, not surprising your head is spinning those bookshelves look wonderful! Heaven! You have yourself a private library at home.. I'm so jealous! :-) Please post some pics once you've filled them up. (and congrats on having such a thoughtful and handy husband!)

    Aww that puppy is too cute, he looks adorable! (it's a he?) Bet Declan is above the moon he got such a great new playmate :-)

  10. OH the bookcases! That's what heaven looks like. Congratulations on the new baby! I recently adopted a shelter pup and it's been an adventure. Precious puppy!

  11. Sssoooooo jealous of your book shelves. And Little Bear is adorable. I had a dog called Bear once except he was a big black German Shepherd. Very different lol
    To answer your question, if there's more than a couple books I prefer to click through a link to find out details.

  12. Little Bear is sooo cute!!!!

    Wow, your new bookshelves are great! Enjoy!

  13. Congratulations on your sweet furbaby! WOW those bookshelves are awesome!

    Here's my IMM for the week:

    I hope you have an awesome Sunday!
    Laura from the Bookie Bunch ;D

  14. Little Bear is adorable! What a sweet face. :-) Have a great reading week.

  15. Little Bear has to be the cutest puppy ever!!!
    The bookshelves look amazing! As for your question I would rather click on a link if there's more than 3 books because then it's just too much when every summary is on it.

  16. Wow, I love you bookcase wall! Pure awesomeness. And that puppy is waay cute! :)

  17. I'm jealous of all that shelf room! And adorable dog!

  18. Awww, the awesome bookshelf and the cute puppy in the same week?? Yay!!

  19. I already forgot what books you got because THOSE BOOKSHELVES ARE TO FREAKING DIE FOR!!!!! I'm so jealous of you! I have shelves that line the top of the walls (a built in nook) but I have to have a ladder to get them down! Those shelves are my dream shelves!
    Okay, now that puppy. I just want to reach in and grab him (her?) and smother it with kisses!
    Oh, and the books. Congrats on not buying any and yay for the library!

  20. Wow! Love the bookshelves! Now you just need to get some new books to fill them! :) Your puppy is adorable too.

    I love Juliet Marillier. I hope you enjoy Wildwood Dancing and your other books. About your question on book descriptions: I used to write out descriptions or look them up and copy/paste from Amazon but it is so much easier to just link to Goodreads.

    Have a great week!

  21. Great books, fabulous bookshelves and an adorable puppy!!! That is a great week indeed!

    Here is my IMM if you'd like to stop by!

  22. Fantastic bookshelves - I'm SUPER jealous - and your puppy is cute too...What a great week!!

    And OMG!! That book shelf is a total dream come true! That's amazing! And awww cute doggie! It looks so fluffy!

    Here is my mailbox! :)

  24. Wow @ the bookcases and adorable puppy.
