I have just arrived this week in Singapore, and to welcome me back home I received several notices indicating that there are book packages awaiting my pick-up. Yipee! Such a wonderful way to welcome me home.
In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren. It is truly a pleasure to join this meme since it allows me as well to keep track of books that I (1) bought (2) were given to me as gifts (3) given to me for review (4) book prizes.
Here are my presents for the week:
I got the Good Little Wolf by Nadia Shireen in a book giveaway hosted by Zoe from Playing by the Book. Thanks so much for this, truly unexpected. I also thought that the book would be perfect for our Bimonthly theme this July/August on Fractured Fairy tales.
Ninth Ward by Jewell Parker Rhodes is also another book prize that I received from participating in the Person of Color Reading Challenge. I was among the winners selected for the month of April. I am happy to share that I have now received the book.
Now here are three more books that arrived unexpectedly in my mailbox this week: three lovely YA books from the prolific Australian Author, Ken Spillman. I met Ken during the recent AFCC here in Singapore and we have discussed the possibility of my featuring him for our Meet the Storyteller section, and he has generously said yes. These three books would be featured here as well.
The books also came with an enclosed note:
I am also happy to share that I have just received the books (all 18 kilos of them) that I bought while I was in the Philippines. Since I already did an IMM post for most of them, I will just be featuring the books that I received from the authors themselves along with their beautiful dedication:
How about you? What is your IMM for the week?
