In My Mailbox: Week 34

Here’s what I got this week!

Thanks to Kristi of The Story Siren for hosting!


Amazon has a new Kindle Deal of the Day, a new deal every(week)day! I bought this for $1.39. Most the daily deals are going for $1.99, not a bad price!

The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo

224 pages, Candlewick Press, (2009-08-30)



Timeless by Alexandra Monir

304 pages, Delacorte Books for Young Readers, (2011-01-11)

$9.65 (

I won this signed on Alexandra’s site during the one day YA Scavenger Hunt. She also sent me a CD with two songs that she wrote and sang herself!

One Day (Movie Tie-in Edition) (Vintage Contemporaries) by David Nicholls

448 pages, Vintage, (2011-05-24)

$7.45 (

I won this book, two Moleskin note pads, a makeup bag, and what I think is a “One Day” charm bookmark. Thank you Beth @ Beth Fish Reads for the giveaway!

I won this tote bag from Scholastic’s On Our Minds Blog! I gave it to my 7 year old daughter. She wasn’t impressed but she hardly ever is. But she’s always complaining about the amount of packages I receive in the mail and that her and Daddy never get anything, so I told her this package was for her. Should have known she’d react that way.


The Wicked and the Just by J. Anderson Coats

352 pages, Harcourt Children’s Books, (2012-04-17)

$11.55 (

Free Kindle Edition

Forever Mine (The Moreno Brothers 1) by Elizabeth Reyes

Other Purchases

Heartsy - Exclusive deals on fabulous handmade designer items at members-only prices.

I ordered two PDF patterns from Hadley Grace Designs. I purchased store credit for her site via Heartsy. It was a major deal! Highly recommend Heartsy if you’re an Etsy fan.

I’ve already sewn the dress for my daughter. She’s wearing it today! I had to borrow my mother-in-laws amazing sewing machine because mine has decided to eat thread rather than produce seams. Not sure what I’m going to do about that. It’ll cost $62.99 to have it looked at at Sears but I’m wondering if I should just put that money towards a better machine. My mother-in-laws cost $3,400! I won’t be getting that one that’s for sure and I’m a little sad about that.

  1. I like Kate DiCamillo’s writing. I read one of her other books before!

    $3,400 dollars for a sewing machine! Wow, I hope it also brings her a latte and then makes her bed for that price!

    Happy Sunday to you Jess:)

  3. I’m seriously addicted to my Kindle. LOVE those deals of the day and all the deals all the time! AH! I was reading a report last week (I don’t even remember where) that said e-reader users buy more books than people who buy traditional books. See! We BUY more! Ha!

    Love the books you got this week. They look good!

  4. My daughter loved the Edward Tulane book. That dress looks great on her!
