In My Mailbox #132

I didn't read as much this week. Just Exile, which I hated. Then Blackbird. Which I sort of enjoyed. But I am currently reading The School for Good and Evil. <3 Haven't gotten far yet, but loving it already. Another Cress Tuesday; with a small Thorne teaser :) And I'm waiting on Ruin and Rising. <3 Need that book right now, please. Sigh. Anyway. I got some awesome things in the mail this week :D Still missing lots, but not that much. Hah. Lies. I'm waiting on tons of pre-ordered books, lol. <3 These days I'm just waiting on May 26th to get here, as sister and I are going on a 22-hours-road-trip :D Taking a plane to pick up her new car, then driving it home. <3 So excited! Will do lots of shopping, lol. I cannot wait. Sigh. Anyway. I love all the things and books I got in the mail. <3 What did you get this week?
Also. I will spend today reading. But tomorrow! Tomorrow I will catch up to comments. Promise.

The Taking.
Though I couldn't finish this book.. I still need to own it. <3 As I might give it another try :)
The Hero's Guide to Being an Outlaw. I have yet to read book two; but will read all three soon :D Excited.
Sweet Reckoning. I have yet to start this trilogy. But now I can :D As I have peeked at the ending, lol.

  10. Love signed books! Enjoy your haul, Carina. :)

  11. Ooo, The One and Sweet Reckoning, two final books in the series! Very nice. I wasn't a huge fan of The Taking, to be honest :\ I hope you enjoy all of your new books, Carina!

    Thanks for visiting my blog!

  12. Yay! I'm glad your book are coming in! I haven't gotten to start The Taking yet, and I've become kind of hesitant because so many people are feeling meh about it. I'm waffling back and forth on whether I think you'd like the Selection books. I liked the first, quite enjoyed the second, and LOVED the third. It ends really well, I can assure you of that! :) Hahaha, enjoy your random copy of Paper Towns! How funny! :D Have a great week Carina!

  13. Are you reading the ONE? I'd think that would be a series you'd stay away from. HOWEVER, I have heard that people are pleased with the ending. I bet you peaked to see who won ;). If you do read this, I'm very curious what you think!

  14. I got my copy of The One too! I'm super excited yet SOO nervous at the same time!! I'm afraid about how it will end and haven't had the guts to start it yet, LoL.

  15. I wanted to read The Selection series but have yet to get the books. Great haul for the week! Thanks for visiting my blog!


  16. LOL I love that you peeked at the ending for Sweet Reckoning, I totally did too. We are like twins in that regard. :P I haven't read the series either, but want to do a binge eventually. We should together!

    Still unsure when/if I'm going to read The Taking. I'm a little creeped out about the romance, but I WANT to ship it. If I don't ship it, I'll hate the book. :/


I love getting comments. Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog :)
