In My Mailbox (#8)


Kristi at The Story Siren hosts this great meme where bloggers can share their new book acquistions for the week:)

Bought after winning an Amazon giftcard from Amanda at One Minute Books:

Loving the potential of this book. Because Delaney's mom has died, she flies cross country to meet her real dad, a man and life coach she's never met. He reveals that he's a Fairy Godmother (I double checked- they don't use "Fairy Godfather!), and the gene is hereditary. Soon, Delaney is acting as someone else's f.g. complete with her own chopstick wand. Think I'll read this as part of the 2012 TBR Pile Reading Challenge.

What's in your mailbox this week?

Congrats on the win! A book always seems so much better when you don't have to pay for it yourself haha. I haven't read Don't Expect Magic myself so as always I'm looking forward to your thoughts on it. Hope you love it Jenna.

That book sounds really fun! I like the sound of a dad who is a fairy godmother, or father.

This book looks like such a fun read! I almost bought this last week and had a huge debate with myself about it in the middle of Barnes and Noble. That was probably why everyone at the cafe was staring at me funny :) I ended up putting it back in favor of another book so I'll be watching for your thoughts on it and if I should go back and pick it up.

Thanks for stopping by Book Cover Justice. I'm a new follower :)
