In My Mailbox #130

Well, this is depressing. Last week I got two books. This week I got zero. I blame Easter. I am waiting on A LOT of pre-ordered books, yet none have arrived. They better get here on Monday. Sigh. I hope. But I did get a few other things, hih. <3 And those make me happy. And I downloaded this awesome-sounding book via Macmillan Kids via Netgalley. <3 And I had a few awesome blog posts this week as well. I haven't read much, as I haven't felt like doing much this week at all. Sigh. But yesterday I read and reviewed The Falconer, which I really loved. Which makes me happy. I also shared my collection of The Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo. <3 It is pretty huge :D Love it all so much. Sigh. I also shared the cover and title for The Raven Boys #3. Which is so gorgeous and amazing. And I'm waiting on this awesome MG book. <3 And another Cress Tuesday. Which I will re-read soonish. I hope :) Ohh, and I did post my review for Rebel :D I'm hoping to read more. Which I also loved. What did you get this week?

The Winner's Curse & The Shadow Society. Amazing swag pack that I got from Marie. <3 Thank you so so much. I love them all to pieces! So gorgeous :D And I loved both her books so so much. They are amazing. Truly amazing. <3 Have anyone read them? :) Gorgeous eyeshadows, stickers and bookmarks.

How To Train Your Dragon. Gorgeous puzzles and dragons. <3 I love them so so much. But agh. I hate the site I have to order from. They keep LYING on the package value, so I must pay tons in taxes. It isn't allowed to lie, is it? And it sucks. Trying to get them to pay me back what I had to pay. Hopefully.
Toy Story. I just had to buy these, as I adore these movies. <3 And blu-ray. Sigh. I got them for £20.
Pocahontas 2. This one I had to own as well. Been ages since I saw it, but remember loving it much.

Evidence of Things Not Seen. Well, I don't know if I will enjoy this book :D But I think it looks pretty. And the summary sounds a bit creepy and amazing. I really do hope that I will enjoy this book. Not sure when I will read it, but hopefully pretty soon :)

  1. Wow, that swag pack is absolutely gorgeous!! So, yay for awesome swag!
    But boo, for no preorders arriving!! *shakes fist at postal services* I hope you'll get everything next week, sweetie!

  2. Ahhh, I have been wanting to re-watch Pocahontas for the longest time! I remember loving it as a child. I don't think I've seen the sequel, though.

  3. I know. Waiting can be frustrating, but your books will get there eventually. Nice swag pack. I got to meet Marie Rutkoski this week. She is so sweet.

  4. So much Swag - awesome! I love How to Train your Dragons!

  5. I think those are some pretty cool swags, anyway. I hate waiting for book mail too. Sigh.

  6. Love the Marie Rutkoski swag pack!! And Toy Story rocks, I really need to purchase those films sometime.

    Hope you enjoy everything!

  7. Yay to the swag :-) I have some of it as well. Love the bookmarks. I've not heard about that book so I'll need to look into it and see if I want to read it too. Hopefully all your preordered books come sooner than later.

  8. Oh my gosh! Love all The Winner's Curse swag you've got there! So cool! And that How to Train Your Dragon puzzle and the mini dragon? That's pretty epic! Thanks for sharing and happy reading! <3

  9. That is some gorgeous swag! I enjoyed the book, and the cover is so pretty. It sucks that you didn't get any books this week, but hopefully they'll be here soon :)
    Happy reading, and thanks for stopping by!

  10. What gorgeous swag Carina. The bookmarks are such pretty colours! I don't think I've heard of Evidence of Things Not See before either, but I hope you end up enjoying it! Also I hope your pre-orders arrive soon!

  11. Awww, mail is the best AND the worst! I've got several packages at home right now, but I'm at school, which means they're there but not in my hands! I'll be home Thursday, though, so then it'll be a party. :) I hope all of your packages come in this week!! In the meantime, at least you have that GORGEOUS swag to look at! I considered Evidence of Things Not Seen, because that cover is gorgeous, I agree, but decided against it, largely just because I have so much else. :)

    Have a great week Carina! (Fingers crossed for pre-orders!)

  12. Ooo, I love The Winner's Curse! That swag is fabulous. I hope you get the preorders you're waiting for soon! Have a terrific week, Carina!

    Thanks for visiting my blog!

    Evidence of Things not Seen is so gorgeous, I hope the story lives up to the cover! LOL
