In My Mailbox #134

Well. This was a good week. And a bad week. I am HEARTBROKEN over the fact that I got declined to read Winterspell via Edelweiss :( Do they not know how much I want it? Ack. So unfair, lol. But I requested again. Sigh. Fingers crossed. ANYWAY. The rest of the week was pretty amazing. I got some AWESOME things in the mail. <3 A few amazing things that I have won. Sigh. So happy. And I got my sister and nephew back home, hih. So I am even more exhausted these days, lol. And I cut my hair yesterday. It feels SO SHORT. I told her I wanted just above the shoulder. This is not just above the shoulder. It is so so much shorter. I might share pictures on Instagram someday. Maybe. We'll see ;p ANYWAY. I am ALSO going on a roadtrip with my sister on Monday :D She is buying a car. So we are first flying two hours to Oslo, then driving home through Sweden. Which will be 23 hours in a car. But we will stop many places. And sleep for at least two nights. So I am very excited, hih. I cannot wait. Sigh. Anyway. I was supposed to read a lot this week. But I still don't really feel like reading anything. Sniffs. But. I did read my preview of The Cabinet of Curiosities. <3 And I re-read The Cavendish Home for Boys and Girls. It is so good. Another awesome Cress Tuesday. <3 And I'm waiting on Firebug this week. Oh, and I posted my Rebel blog tour post :) Also, US GIVEAWAY! On the Rebel blog tour post. Still a day left to enter :) You should do that. Anyway. So happy with what I got this week. <3 What did you get this week?

Book package won from Stefan Bachmann. Huge thank you to Stefan :D I am SO EXCITED about these books. <3 Have read the preview of Cabinet already, and loved it so much. <3 And Cavendish is a favorite of mine. Sigh. But have yet to read the other three books :D And I cannot wait to read them all. They look awesome. And also! The Peculiar is signed :D Thank you so much Stefan. I love it. <3 You can see the very awesome signature by Stefan on my instagram, here. Love this package so much. <3

  10. The beautiful and the cursed is an amazing series and it doesn't really have a love triangle. I've read both this month and loved them!! Enjoy your roadtrip!!!

  12. I quite enjoyed The Queen of the Tearling. My main issue though was with the mc. At times the things she did and thought were maddening.
