What Did I Receive?

"What Did I Receive?" is my mailbox meme. Of course, I only list the good things that come (books), not the abundance of junk mail and bills. In my idea of the perfect world, of course, the amount of books would greatly out number the bills. Sadly, this is not a perfect world. *SIGH* Oh well. Still, this week was pretty close though-- two deliveries of books!
Here's what I got this past week:

Seduce Me In Shadow by Shayla Black Thanks to the Book Binge, where I won this from a few weeks ago! I can't wait to read this one, it sounds so good, but I think I'll wait until I can get the first book -- I hate starting a series in the middle! :D

Second delivery... And look, it arrived through The Royal Air Mail! Well, okay, that's where it was sent out from, but still. I love getting packages from the UK, their Royal Air seal is cool looking. Maybe it's the 'QUEEN' in me that loves the crown seal so much...

On ward to the actually picture:

Daughter of the Flames by Zoe Marriott

The Swan Kingdom by Zoe Marriott

And some great signed swag from Zoe as well! Thanks so much to Alyssa @ The Shady Glade for hosting this wonderful author interview/contest this past month! I was surprised when I saw my name for the winner, but very excited-- I fell in love with the covers (the UK covers, which mine are above, look better than the US version, IMHO), and I really enjoyed the advice that Zoe gave at TSG. :D Extra thanks to Zoe for signing them, and including all the amazing swag! I love it all, I can't wait to read the books, and I'm going to listen to the Playlist you included tonight!

~~~ Enjoy!

Until Next Time, The Book Queen

Ooh, I know-- I was very happy when I came home Thursday to the UK package from Zoe. Talk about a pep-pill to tide me over until the weekend! LOL. Who needs TGIF when you can have book deliveries instead, right?
My weekend wasn't too bad-- starting to get chilly here...which gives me more excuses to sit inside with a good book and some hot chocolate! Hope your weekend was good as well. :D

Thanks! :D Really, I'm still surprised I won the prizes from the Shady Glade--- I think I entered that one at the last minute! Guess my luck was with me.

You are so right.. I love when I get a package in the mail and know it is a book!!! *whispering so hubby does not hear this* I love books more than roses!!!! But what woman does not like to be pampered with roses every once in a while! But omg, to get books... And you are so right... books, hot chocolate, comfy clothes and a blanket!!! To die for!!!
Have a great day hon!
