In My Mailbox #515

For real, Saturday again? Ahh. Time is moving way too fast for me. I still haven't forced myself to start reading again. Gosh. I am the worst. But I'm slowly getting a little better. Well, a little worse, a little better. Hospital visit this coming week. Then hopefully medicine day right after that. Fingers crossed. I will do my very best to read in the next few days. I also ordered something truly amazing yesterday, and I can't wait to get it in about a week or so, eee. Will share then :) I did get some truly great bookish mail this week, though. <3 Love it all the most. Only one new blog post, as usual, sigh. I will get better soon. Hopefully :) This week I'm waiting on The Midnight Orchestra :D Hope that you are all doing well and staying safe. <3

Lady Midnight. New special UK edition, eee. I couldn't not buy it, ha :D Lovely book. And love this cover.
Empire of the Vampire. First of six copies to arrive. Oops. Signed, black, Waterstones edition :D Love it.

Waiting on Wednesday #518

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

THE MIDNIGHT ORCHESTRA (Mystwick #2)
BY JESSICA KHOURY


Goodreads Description:

In this spellbinding sequel to The Mystwick School of Musicraft, Amelia must master the magic of Composing to help her school win a magic competition—and save her friends from a mysterious evil.

Things are finally looking up for Amelia Jones: she's officially a Mystwick student, and she even has a teacher to help her learn how to use her rare Composing magic. When Mystwick enters an international magic competition, it’s Amelia's chance to Compose something that will help them win the day. The only problem is that she still doesn’t understand how her powers work. But then she hears about a super exclusive Midnight Orchestra—half performance, half magical black market—and Amelia is sure that’s where she’ll find the answer to her Composing problem.

But the Midnight Orchestra is far more sinister than it initially appears and if Amelia can’t unlock her Composing powers, not only will Mystwick lose the musicraft competition, she won’t be able to rescue her friends from the danger unleashed in this thrilling adventure.

What. Another week gone by. I'm not even sure where the time is going these days. I still have not read anything. Have read so, so little this year. Which makes me sad. Aw. But need to feel like it too, need to be well enough too. And right now my body is a fucking mess, full of pain and shit. So yeah. I'm not ready to catch up to things yet. Soon, hopefully. This week I watched Nevertheless, on Netflix. And it goddamn killed me. So sweet and adorable and hot. Then so heartbreaking and rude. But a good ending too. So yeah. I'm still broken over it. But it was so good too. I know I will watch it again one day soonish. Oops. But oh, I hope to read again soon. Aw. Plus side, got some gorgeous mail this week :D Eee. Love all my new pop figures. Oops. Too many, ha. And love my books. Sigh. This week I'm waiting on Serendipity. <3 I really do want to make myself read something soon. Ack. Hope you are all doing well and staying safe :)

Divergent Series. This series meant so much to me back then. So of course I bought these new covers :D
Lightbringer. Yesss. Gorgeous paperback editions are here. <3 Bought two, as always :) Must read soon.
The Light in Hidden Places. Couldn't help but buy this paperback version too, as I really liked this book.
Pop Figures. Oh gosh. So many new ones. Oops. I love them all so very much, though :D New cats. <3

I am not certain how it is Saturday once more. Time is moving so fast these days. Gosh. It's already September! Ahh! I have still not read anything. Aw. But have been focused on healing and mostly just sitting still doing nothing, ha. But I'm happy with that too. But I will truly try my hardest this coming week to read a book. I love reading so much. And have read so, so little this year. Aw. But anyway. Healing is going well. Sadly got a whole bunch of other bad things going on, like a huge abscess. But doing better, despite all that, ha. No new books this week, but that is fully okay, as I'm waiting on many these coming weeks. Sigh. Help. But did get some mail at least :) This week I'm waiting on Bravely. <3 Eee! So excited for it. I hope to feel better/more okay this coming week. I hope you are all doing well, and are still safe :)


Aliens. Oops. Another Alien game, haha. This one newer. And hoping that I will end up loving it a bunch.
The Cry. I loved this short series so, so much. Needed to buy it, so I can watch it again soon. Oops. Love.
Pop figures. Finally got to buy Charmander :D SO cute. And eee, that Stitch is very awesome. Love him.
