In My Mailbox #131

IT'S MY BIRTHDAY! Finally turned 21, hih. <3 And ohh. I got a lot of books this week. And a lot of ebooks too, lol. I cannot wait to read them all. Also. I read a lot of ARCs this week. Reviews: Hungry. (Don't You) Forget About Me. The Truth About Alice. The Thickety: A Path Begins. My Last Kiss. Cress Tuesday this week made me a bit sad. Sniffs. Such a good book. This week I'm waiting on Winterkill. <3 Cannot wait to read it. Also, I know that I'm a bit behind on comments. And I'm sorry. But hoping to do that in a few days :D Still waiting on a bunch of books and things, though ;p What did you all get this week? <3

Package from HarperCollins International. <3 Thank you thank you thank you so much :D I love all of these books so much. <3 Only read (Don't You) Forget About Me so far, but I loved it to pieces. Hoping to read the rest soon :D A little bit sad that The Cabinet of Curiosities was only a teaser.. but thankfully that book is out soon :D Will read this sampler soon, and then share a preview review. <3

The Forever Song. Finally got my gorgeous pre-orders. <3 Loved this book. Love both covers; US & UK.
The School for Good and Evil 2. This looks so awesome. Hoping to read book one soon :D Can't wait.
Dead Silence. I have this need to own all the books. Agh. But it is really pretty. <3 Have yet to read.
Warm Bodies. Sucker Punch. Wolfman. These were on sale so I just had to buy them. <3 Only seen WB.
3DS Games. These were on sale too :D So now I don't only have Mario, lol ;p Excited to try them all.

Prisoner of Night and Fog.
Despite giving this only a three star, I needed my own copy. SO pretty!
The Treatment. Heard bad things about this. Sniffs. Have yet to read book one (A) but now I have both.
Raging Star. I have peeked. Still don't know if I wish to read book two and this. Still pissed at bk 2 :\
The Wizard's Promise. Yeah, yeah, I have yet to read the other two books (A) but this isn't the same ;p
Calendars. These were pretty cheap, so I just had to buy them, lol. And I think they all look adorable.

Snow Like Ashes. Stray. Beware the Wild. Blackbird. Forbidden. These four books I got via HarperCollins on Edelweiss. <3 Yesss for auto-approval, hih :D I cannot wait to read them all. Think they sound all kinds of awesome. Not sure which to start first, though. But figuring that out soonish, I think ;p
The Summoning. Welcome to the Dark House. These two I got via Disney on Netgalley :D Just had to request them, as I liked the summary for both books. I will read them. Hopefully. Soonish, I think.
