In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren … and I end up adding a ton of books to my wish list every week.
I was going to do a sort of joke IMM this week because of what I received in the mail on Monday. Then I actually got a book in the mail so it’s a more official IMM post than it was going to be.
First, the book:
by Jennifer Solow
It’s all about the Attitude
Parker Bell knows the secret to beauty is pretty simple–wearing the right clothes isn’t as important as how you feel in them. Popularity is like that too. It’s all about attitude. You have to picture who you want to be and then just imagine that’s who you already are.
This year Parker and her three best friends have made their way to the top of the populadder at Wallingford Academy. And they’re ready to use their Aristobrat status to help spread positive vibes throughout the school. But when the girls are assigned to produce the seriously lame school webcast, their popularity plummets! Will this tragedy destroy the girls’ status? Or their friendship? Or both? (goodreads.com)
Now, this isn’t something I would normally read, but I was contacted by the author about it and hit it off so well with her she arranged for her publisher to find me a copy. I will admit that I am honestly curious about the book. If it’s written with as much humour as Jennifer writes in her messages I think I will enjoy it. Thanks to the author and Sourcebooks for t his book! (Also? It’s so shiny! Very pretty to look at. ;))
What I got on Monday made me do a little happy jiggle. I was expecting it but I didn’t think it would be so big or so well put together.
“What the heck is that?” I know you are probably asking yourself. “A fish?!” And yes, it’s a fish. Specifically it is Felix the fish, the mascot of BigFish Games. He’s my one year anniversary gift for being a member to the game club. I’ve been a member on and off for about 5 years but never for a full year. This past May was my 1 year (consecutive) anniversary and I got this lovely guy this week!
He is now being enjoyed by Jinx.
Jinx was sooooooo excited when I opened the box because OMG!!!11!!!!!!11!!11 it’s a TOY! I tossed around the ideas of keeping him or letting Jinx have a nibble and my love for Jinx and his desperate enthusiasm for wanting the new toy won. So today, after taking my fish photos, I let Jinx carry him around the house all proudly.
