In My Mailbox (#42): Birthday Edition

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi @ The Story Siren.

I hunted around the house for the camera today, so I could show you my birthday haul (mixed with some review books from last week). I am officially an adult! J'ai dix-huit ans. I guess to many people this would be a huge deal, but to be honest, I feel exactly the same :P. Aaaanyway, here are ze books: 

Some cool swag there! I pre-ordered some things too, which have yet to arrive.

I also got...a Kindle!

No photo yet because I am busy setting it up, but I can tell you it has a nice purple cover and is generally just awesome.
