In My Mailbox #144

Didn't get that much this week. Eeek. Still missing so much, though. Sigh. Hoping for much more next week :D But I did get a few books and a few things this week, still. <3 And I'm happy with that. I'm not really feeling better at all this week, so I have still not been able to catch up to blog comments :( But I'm hoping to feel up for that next week. Fingers crossed. Anyway. This week I posted a Queen Levana Cress Tuesday teaser. <3 And I'm waiting on Gates of Thread and Stone :) After I read that one star book last week I had days were I wasn't able to read at all. But then I got Monstrous. And I had to read it. So I read and reviewed Monstrous. <3 Which was awesome. And heartbreaking. And then I also read The Fall :D Which was so perfect. Sigh. I'm planning on starting Firebug next. We'll see ;p And then I shared the cover for The Thickety: The Whispering Trees. <3 My god. So beautiful. What did you get this week?

Don't forget to enter my INTERNATIONAL giveaway of If You Find Me by Emily Murdoch. <3 There will be FOUR winners. ALL books will be signed. Go enter the giveaway here. This book is very amazing. <3

Divergent Box Set. Well... I needed this. Pfff. Not. But I wanted it. <3 And it wasn't THAT expensive.
Four. UK paperback edition :D I now own them all. Except for that signed edition :'( Sobs. I want it.
Rebel Spring. I really need to re-read Falling Kingdoms so that I can read this gorgeous book. Sooon.
Shadow and Bone. German paperback edition :D And aw. Isn't it gorgeous? So pretty. I love it. <3
The Immortal Rules. Ohhh. I didn't know this was in Norwegian :D Saw it, got it. Not too expensive.
Shipwreck Island. I read this book a while ago. And it was adorable. So I had to get a finished copy :D
Falcon in the Glass. I don't really know that much about this. But so pretty. So I had to buy it, lol. :)
The Cure for Dreaming. Goooorgeous postcards. <3 Thank you so so much Cat. You are the best.

Movies. These were on a deal, so I had to get them, hih. <3 Narnia with plush :D Ack. Movies look good.
Things. Mini shopping cart :D New store in a different town. Had to get some things. And this shopping cart? It looks awesome. I'm in love with it, lol. And globe ball. Love it. And a small game too. Hih. And two gorgeous necklaces :) One elephant. One infinity sign thingy. They were on sale. So pretty. <3

These two I got because duh. Monstrous I have been dying to read for ages. And I have already read and loved it. <3 So good. Liars, Inc I will be reading once I read some more reviews of it, lol. But hoping it will be good. We'll see :) Keeping my fingers crossed for it.

I live over there. <3 On the right, below the sun. More pictures on my Instagram.

My collection of books by Maggie Stiefvater.
The Scorpio Races is my favorite book. <3 So so so good. But I love ALL of these books by Maggie. So damn ngood. Well, I have yet to read Ballad and Lament. But soonish. I hope. And soon my collection will be even bigger, lol :D When Blue Lily, Lily Blue comes out. <3 Sigh. I cannot wait for that book to come.

My collection of books by Veronica Roth.
Nope. I do not have a book obsession. Not at all. lol :D These are all my Divergent books. <3 Except for this bigger movie thing that I have somewhere else. I.. sometimes I cannot stop myself from buying books. I want all the editions. And I want many copies of said edition. Which has happened here. A few of them are signed, though :D Two are signed to me. <3 Ack. Well. I'm in love with my collection.


  1. I'm seriously always in awe with your book collections. I don't think I could ever get so many copies, because it would kind of.. feel like a waste of money and space, but it is pretty to look at. I also got Monstrous and I can't wait to read it :D I still don't know if I want to get Roth's edition from Four, but I might go ahead and get it to complete the collection.

    Happy reading!

  2. Wow, that's a lot of the same copies. I have to agree with Mel above that I don't think I could have so many copies of the same book due to space constrictions. Enjoy your books, Carina! :)

  3. Sweet books! Love that UK edition of FOUR (and that reminds me that I still need to get that book). PERKS is such a fabulous movie!

    Adore your Stiefvater collection! Her writing is gorgeous.

  4. haha like everyone, i don't think i would want to get so many multiple copies! I wouldn't mind a paperback and hardback editions but that's about it. I would rather buy different books but still, whatever makes you happy XD

    I need to get my hands on Morgan Rhodes' books! awesome haul as usual Carina <3

  5. Wow this is a pretty amazing haul Carina! I really want to read the Four collection book, I finally saw the UK edition in my bookstore, so must definitely grab a copy, next time I'm there. Also I love seeing your book photos on instagram! Happy reading Carina! :)

  6. Dang, you revel in excess! :D Not a bad thing, collections are amazing. I love the new boxset of the Divergent series! I hope you enjoy all of your new books, Carina!

    Thanks for visiting my blog! Have a fabulous weekend!

  7. Holy wow, girl---there are no words to describe it! That collection is amazing! You truly go all out to support your favorite authors and that's awesome!
    Monstrous!! So excited for that one, so I can't wait to hear what you think of it.

  8. Omg, that Veronica Roth collection is... well, I'm speechless haha! And now you'll have the DVD to add to the collection soon too. :P I never finished that series - the ending, ugh - but I did love the first book! Four is amazingly swoony. <3 Also, The Scorpio Races is one of my favorites too! Love Sean and Puck.

    Happy reading, girl! Can't wait to see what you think of Liars Inc.

  9. Shipwreck looks good, I hope that you enjoy reading it. Have a wonderful week!

  10. WOW CARINA!! What impressive collections of books!! If I have more than one version of a book it's usually one in my Kindle and a physical one! O_O Signed books are the best!

    I'm glad to hear you loved Monstrous and I cannot wait to hear what you think of Liars INC! I'm hoping to be approved for that one on EW myself!

    I hope you will be feeling much better finally next week sweetie!

  11. What a collection! I can't wait to get and read Four. I have heard it's great. I can't wait to hear what you think. Enjoy!!

  12. AHHH I just screamed out loud at seeing all those Divergent books. Your place must be a book worm paradise, really! :)

  13. Ooh, what a great week! I seriously need to get my act together and read Falling Kingdoms! I met Morgan Rhodes at RT and didn't have anything to say to her while she was signing my book because I hadn't read it. Shame on me! Maybe I'll wait a bit longer, so all three books will be out, though. :D Eek! I love that infinity necklace! So pretty!

    That is a lot of books! I have duplicates of a select few books and my shelves are bursting already. The foreign editions of Maggie's books are just gorgeous, too. I'd try to snatch them all up if I could, too. :D


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