In My Mailbox #145

I got some pretty amazing books this week. <3 Which makes me all kinds of happy, hih. So excited about them all. But ack. I am still behind on commenting :( I'm sorry. But sooon. This Monday I'm back to the hospital, to get an x-ray of my stomach. Not looking forward to it, lol. So far in August I have only read two books. Ack! I must read more. Which I will. Planning on starting Mortal Danger today. <3 And an eARC on Monday. We'll see if I'll manage it, hih. Anyway. This week I shared the cover for The Body Electric. <3 And the cover for The Walls Around Us :D Both are gorgeous. I shared a Sybil/Cress teaser as Cress Tuesday. <3 I'm waiting on Gathering Darkness :) And I read the amazing Firebug. Romance disappointed me a little, but the book was great. And then I also read Mortal Heart :D Which was perfect. Sigh. Happy with all I got. <3 Despite missing much. Sobs. What did you get this week?

  1. Magnolia sounds great, hope that you enjoy. Have a great weekend!

  2. You really cleaned up. Aren't signed books the best. It's always awesome when you get to meet the author in person. Come visit me as well.

    Books of Love

  3. Lucky :) You got a lot of awesome books this week. And although I didn't review Mortal Danger - I read it, and it's not all sorts of amazing. It's kind of a disappointment - so be wary. But who knows, hopefully you'll like it and it'll turn out I'm a bit wrong in the head. Oh yeah, I love your wall of swag!

  4. Magnolia sound like an sweet read, love the cover :)

  5. I'm having my fingers crossed for the signed copy of If you find me <3 I loved the book and I want to have it on my shelves. I'm a little jealous you won the giveaway from Rae Carson. Such beautiful editions and SIGNED. I loved Mortal Heart too. Happy reading and good luck with the X-ray.

  6. Look at all the goodies! Awesome! You have some wonderful additions to your shelves and walls (as well as amazing looking reading material). Thanks for sharing your pictures.

    Good luck at the doctor!

  7. YAY! What a haul. So happy you got Mortal Heart and Mortal Danger. So curious to see what you think of MD. I still haven't read my copy of MH and I'm honestly shocked I've not dropped my reading schedule for it yet. I keep staring at it but have yet to start reading. Enjoy them all Carina!

  8. I LOVED Mortal Danger and Magnolia! And I have Mortal Heart as well. Saw your review and I'm so glad you enjoyed it! :)
