Mailbox Monday is a weekly meme started by Marcia years ago, and has since jumped to different hosts.  It's a post to showcase books and book-related items gathered through the previous week.

Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.
Two of my best friends brought me out for a late birthday celebration on Tuesday, first to my favorite Italian restaurant, then to a beauty supply store, and finally the bookstore (books-a-million). Fun night!

Book Gifts

First, my friend Amber gifted me this, a vintage Superman comic that I plan to frame. Love it - thank you Amber!
And, as the bookstore I picked this out for myself. Since I'm almost done with the Mortal Instruments, it was a given to read the other series set in the same world. I didn't own any, but the box set called my name.
And in case you haven't seen them, the covers (gorgeous) of the individual books
I also ordered myself a book shaped cake pan for birthday cakes this year. It's a lot larger than I figured, will definitely take two  boxes of mix.

As always, happy reading!
