In My Mailbox #88

Yeah. This have been a bad reading week, again. I can't seem to be able to read these days. Sigh. Not much time for it, either. I started The Coldest Girl in Coldtown two days ago. Read half of it. Need to force myself to finish. Not enjoying it at all. Sobs. Anyway. Got some awesome things this week :) 
What did you get this week?

Empire. Sigh. Adore this The Hobbit cover :D Orlando Bloom. <3 Cannot wait for the next movie.
Gollum Empire Magazine. Hih. Gorgeous! But not new like ebay said.. Sad about that a whole lot.
Pitch Perfect. I quite enjoyed it when I saw it a few months ago :) Excited to re-watch it soon.
Born Wicked swag. Gorgeous, gorgeous swag from Jessica. <3 LOVE IT :D So pretty. Sigh.
The Journey to Agartha. I adored this movie. And oh, this gorgeous collector's version is perfect.
Insomnia. Won a signed copy via Kendra Blake :D Cannot wait to read this book. Sounds awesome.
Awaken. I gave book one and two a three star. Need to change to two star.. Can't remember them.
Elegy. Just had to get a pretty paperback of this one too :) Hoping to read it soon. <3 So pretty.
City of Bones. Oh, lots of gorgeous copies! Hardcover movie-tie-in. Two paperback tie-in. Hih. Just had to get them. So pretty. Sigh. And audio CD too :) I just adore Cassie and this book. Love them all.
The Croods. Love this movie so much; and this game was pretty awesome too :D So cute.

I also got accepted to read The Coldest Girl in Coldtown via Netgalley :) But, well. I'm not enjoying it at all. Halfway through it, and I can't bring myself to read more.. but hoping to pick it up tonight and finish it :)

  1. Nice haul of books. Sometimes it's our moods with books. I find that my mood determines what I will read. I'm such a mood reader. Come visit me as well.


  2. Aw, I'm sorry you're not having much luck with reading! I hope that disappears soon. It looks like you got an awesome haul, though. I love Cassie Clare as well, and hopefully I'll be reading Clockwork Princess soon, since I've been really busy the past few months. Now that I'm free, I can read as much as I want. Great post, Carina, thanks for sharing! :)

  3. I enjoyed Insomnia and hope you do too

  4. Ahh, TMI movie tie-in!! It's even prettier than in GR 0.0
    I really can't wait to watch the movie :)
    I've been hearing a mixed review about The Coldest Girl in Coldtown. So sorry to hear that you didn't enjoyed it, though :(
    And aww, I really like Pitch Perfect too!

  5. I totally adore Orlando Bloom too! Lol. Haha! Great haul, Carina. I'm really looking forward reading Insomia too. Lucky you for winning a copy! And ooh, I haven't been visiting Netgalley for quite a long time, didn't know Holly Black's upcoming novel is up there. Gotta try to request that.

    Hope you enjoy all these goodies, Carina! :)

  6. So sad you aren't enjoying Coldest Girl :-( seems like such an interesting book. I'm very curious to read your review once you finish reading. Love all the movie-tie in CoB books :-) Great haul <3

  7. Signed copies <3 The cover from Insomnia gives me the creeps :p Sorry to hear you don't like The coldest girl in coldtown. It looks so promising.


  8. I'm not the biggest fan of The Mortal Instruments, though I'm loving The Infernal Devices :P
    I've only read Abandon though i'm excited for the other two.

    awesome book haul as usual Carina!

  9. Aww, so sorry to hear that you're not enjoying TCGiC. :( I'm really looking forward to it! I enjoyed CoB and and a few of the books that followed, but I gave up after book 4 or so because I found myself bored and thought it was just getting dragged on too much. I think I may be one of the few that isn't all that excited for the movie, haha. x)

    1. <3 lol, I totally understand that :) Though I did love all the Mortal Instruments books ;D Even if they are very long, lol :)

  10. I haven't read Insomnia yet and I know it's got mixed reviews, but I still want to read it. I hope we both enjoy it. I need to pick up Elegy to complete the series. I hope things end happily. Enjoy your reads, Carina. :)

  11. AHH, that magazine cover is gorgeous!! So excited that we will get more of the elves in the second movie. Lee Pace and Orlando Bloom, YAY!!

    I'm excited for Insomnia! Looks awesome and creepy!

  12. I'm loving the new City of Bones covers! And Pitch Perfect! Such a fun movie :)

  13. Of the City of Bones tie-ins look really cool! I won't be getting myself copies, but I'll admire them from afar. ;) I also need to re-read that book before the film comes out. I must remember to do that. :) And I enjoyed Pitch Perfect too! It was a pretty fun movie. :)

    1. Ahh, they are just GORGEOUS in person :D Love them so much. Oh yes, you should do that :) Been a year since I re-read all the books, and I'm not doing it again :p Maybe next year, when the final book is coming out :)

  14. Looks like you got some great things in the mail! I have never seen The Journey of Agartha- but it looks good! City of Bones covers look fab!

    Hope you read something amazing soon!
