In My Mailbox #105

Did not get as much epic this week as I got last week, but I'm still pretty happy with everything that I got :D I'm a bit behind on blog comments, and I'm sorry for that. Just haven't had the energy yet. But I will soon. Hopefully tomorrow; we'll see :D A bit obsessed with The Biggest Loser at the moment, so watching that today. I didn't read too much this week, but I read the amazing Plus One. <3 And Allegiant, which I gave three stars. And yesterday I spent all day re-reading The Scorpio Races. So worth it. Such a perfect book. Not sure what to read next, but I'll figure it out tomorrow, most likely. I had a good week.
Giveaway winner has been picked from my two years of blogging giveaway. Congrats Antonia :)
I almost forgot to mention the most amazing thing this week. I started a new feature on my blog
called Cress Tuesday and I'm SO HAPPY about it :D Sharing a teaser from Cress each week. <3
What did you get this week?

Allegiant. A few different editions :) UK paperback and US hardcover. They are mostly pretty :)
The Evolution of Mara Dyer. Still heartbroken that book three got pushed back. So excited for it :)
Waterfell. I do think this book sounds pretty awesome, and it's pretty, hoping to read it pretty soon.
Frozen. Another Frozen book. <3 Hih. I think it's pretty sweet. A tiny diary. And Elsa is awesome.
Ariel. I just had to order this gorgeous figure of Ariel from Disney Store. Because she is adorable.
Divergent box set. This is a gorgeous box set. Though I'm going to end up owning so many copies (A)
Countdown. I did not know it was the author of Falling Kingdoms! Reading it soon. <3 Excited :D
The Hobbit. Got this edition because Gollum is on the cover, though you can't see it in this pic :)
The Nightmare Before Christmas. Gorgeous ornaments :D I love them. They are just so so pretty.

Perfect Ruin. Yeah, I pre-ordered International Paperback Edition, but bookdepo don't always have those :\ So I ended up getting two hardcovers instead. Meaning I now have FOUR. Hih. So pretty. <3 
Allegiant. See, International Paperback Edition. Very happy they had it, cause it is gorgeous. 
Prism. I adore Katy Perry, so I just had to own a real copy of this CD. It's very pretty.  
Max. From The Little Mermaid :D He's so fluffy and adorable. But not sure about the color. So pretty. 
Allegiant Poster. I won two Allegiant posters from HarperCollins International. <3 Thank you :D 

Oh, and I also got a new bookshelf today :D Will share pics via Instagram/Twitter once it's been set up. <3 Looks so pretty, though. So I'm very happy with it :)

  1. I love the Nightmare before Christmas ornament, so pretty!

  2. Congratulations on your bounty! :D I don't know how much longer I can resist PLUS ONE either, it beckons me with its siren song....

  3. Four copies of Allegiant? LOL you revel in excess, Carina ;)

    Thanks for visiting my blog! Have a great weekend!

  4. THe box set is so pretty <3 And yay for the international paperback edition! Oohh your Allegiant poster arrived? I'm still waiting on mine. It's so pretty though :D

  5. Earlier this year when I was in Paris I bought a similar ariel figure for a friend of mine. We visited Disneyland and she loves ariel hihi. Aww I love fluffy and adorable. Max is just so cute <3

  6. Great haul! I'm pretty eager to read Allegiant, though I saw the spoiler so I'm very upset about that. I think since I've seen it I'll put off reading it for a few more books. Enjoy your books. <3

  7. Wow you got a lot of copies of Allegiant. I'm not going to finish that series even though I loved Divergent. I never picked up Insurgent because I didn't want to be frustrated with Tris and now that I've been spoiled on Allegiant (I'm glad) I have no desire to read that at all. I'll check out your review, but if you gave it 3 stars I'm guessing you weren't impressed. Enjoy your books, Carina. :)

  8. I got Prism too-not sure how I feel about it in comparison to Teenage Dream though, which has so much fun poppiness! Happy reading :)

  9. OH MY GOD POSTERRRRRRR <3 I want it SO BADLY. That is awesome. I am also so heart broken that the retribution of mara dyer was pushed back :(

  10. Awww, I love your Max plushie! I just watched The Little Mermaid last night, actually! Hey, if you have to have four copies of one book, Perfect Ruin is a great one! It's just so darn pretty to look at. And I wish I'd bought the Divergent series boxed set! Allegiant is now the only one I have a finished copy of. Oh well. Enjoy it all! :) :)

  11. ALLEGIANT ALLEGIANT ALLEGIANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    No number of exclamation marks in the world can express how hyped up I am for the book =D Even though most reviews have been... not so happy with the ending, I'm still going to pray and wait for my copy to arrive as it sails over the Atlantic Ocean right this minute haha! I've heard amazing things about Perfect Ruin, going to have to read that one and check out the Chemical Gardens series in the meantime!

  12. I just finished Perfect Ruin and after a bit of a rocky start I ended up really loving it! I adore the Nightmare Before Christmas box!!
