In My Mailbox #147

Hmph. I need to read more. I just haven't felt like reading a lot lately. And I'm still behind on commenting. Though I do comment on a lot of blogs each day. Just need to catch up on my own blog. Ack. And I will. Soon. Once I manage to find the time for it. Or once I stop being lazy. Sigh. Anyway. I'm planning on reading more this upcoming week. Most likely. I have so many books to read. So so many bought books that I have had for years. Ack. And tons of eARCs. And some print ARCs. And oh. I need more time. But I will try to read them all. <3 Anyway. Last weekend I re-watched The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit movies. <3 And my god. They are still my favorites. I want to re-watch them again and again. Hih. I also wrote a The Lord of the Rings blog post. I shared a new Cress Tuesday. <3 Then I decided to re-read Jellicoe Road. Which was the best decision. Perfect book :D This week I'm waiting on Everblaze. <3 And I'm sharing about the Norwegian edition of Jellicoe Road. <3 And then I read The Scandalous Sisterhood of Prickwillow Place. It was adorable. And fun. And creepy. Anyway. I did get some amazing books this week :D I'm happy with it all. <3 But.. I'm also still waiting on so much. Grrr. I do not like waiting on mail. Especially things I have won. I feel like they are lost in the mail, and will never arrive. Ack. But I'm crossing my fingers for next week. <3 Anyway. What did you get this week?

I'm giving away THREE hardcover copies of the Norwegian edition of Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta. You must all enter this giveaway. It's even International. And it has a gorgeous cover. Enter here. <3

The Jumbies. Red Queen. I'm excited for The Jumbies. <3 It looks creepy and awesome. So I'm crossing all my fingers I might love it. <3 Huge thank you to Algonquin for accepting my NetGalley request. <3 And then they auto-approved me. ACK! So exciting :) Sigh. Red Queen. I was curious about it. So I had to download it via Edelweiss. But I peeked. And I am not happy. Stupid fucking love triangles. I'm not pleased at all with what I peeked on. So I'm not sure I will read this book. Sniffs. Maybe I will read it.

My collection of Antigodess by Kendare Blake. <3 So far :D
As always, bunch of pictures on my Instagram. <3


  1. The Norwegian editions of Jellycoe Road are indeed gorgeous, even prettier than the cover I have for my Kindle book!

I loved Kendare Blake's Anna Dressed in Blood books, so obviously. :) I hope you have a wonderful week Carina!
