In My Mailbox (5) CHRISTMAS EDITION! Also, Happy birthday Laptop :)

In My Mailbox is a weekly feature by The Story Siren which allows us to drool with one another over the books that we received or bought this week!

Happy birthday to you, Happy birthday to you, Happy birthday dear laptop, Happy birthday to you! Hip hip hooray!! One year ago, I got my laptop for Christmas from my Dad and stepmum, Kelly! Laptop has come to uni with me, been lugged around and has helped me with blogging. Kelly has suggested I give laptop a name, so her name is now Libby... Not sure where I got that from but it may possibly be inspired from Jimmy Neutron...

Anyway, here is Libby with a party hat.

As for the IMM!

So no, these aren't books... But these are presents from Dad and Kelly... The things I'd like to point out are the PINK Wii Remote and the little notepad or sticky notes! I am obsessed with sticky notes, I use them for absolutely everything and these ones are sooo cute :) Oh, and I bought myself the dishwashing stuff because I broke my last one - I just thought I'd wrap it up and put it in my stocking! Hahaha!

Now, the books here are from Mother dearest <3 She also got me a framed photo of us :)

Roald Dahl's Phizz Whizzing Collection
Percy Jackson Boxset by Rick Riordan
Codename: Sailor V 2 by Naoko Takeuchi
Fury by Elizabeth Miles (My mum thought this was Fury by Shirley Marr and got so excited and bought it for me, she was incredibly disappointed when I said it wasn't the right book, but this is on my TBR list anyway and it's the thought that counts mum<3)

Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi 
Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta
Dash & Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan

And from my Nanna/Poppy, a Target giftcard (which I'm using to buy books). Not sure which books yet, but I will.... :)

What's in your mailbox :)


  1. So many books! And I just drooled over the complete set of Percy Jackson series. I almost squealed over your copy of Fury, too but then I found out it was the wrong book(my friend almost made the same mistake). Anyhow, Merry Christmas to you and Happy Birthday to Libby! :)

  2. Awesome haul this week.
    Eeee! Sailor V! I got the first volume of Sailor Moon for Christmas. I'm so so so excited to read it.
    And holy crap, I am beyond jealous of your Roald Dahl collection.

    Happy reading
