In My Mailbox #149

Oh, how I have been lazy this week. Which is not good. I've just been so tired and not wanting to do anything. And yet I have so much that needs to be done. I'm still behind on my blog comments :( And I'm sorry about that. I will catch up soonish. If I ever start feeling better. Sigh. I also didn't read much this week at all. I was going to, but no. I haven't felt like reading any of my books. But. I am waiting on some that I'm excited about :D Hoping to read today. Or tomorrow. We'll see. <3 But I did read Summerfall. <3 Which was perfect and heartbreaking. I also read Lark Rising, which I did not love. Sniffs. I posted another awesome Cress Tuesday. <3 And I'm waiting on The Walled City :) Giveaway winner for Winterspell swag has been announced here. <3 Anyway. I did get some awesome things in the mail this week. <3 Happy with it all. Though still missing much. Grr. 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. International. It has a gorgeous cover. Enter here. <3 Only 4 days left!

HMPH. This is not the color of my picture. Blogger has done something to it. Haven't been able to change it. Which is a bit annoying. Sigh. As you can see in picture below, it should look like that one.
The Art of Princess Mononoke. Oh, this book is stunning. And this movie is amazing. I love this book.
How To Start A Dragon Academy. This book is just all kinds of adorable. <3 I love it. It is so so cute.
Four. Finally got myself the signed copy, hih, as B&N got a few more in stock :) A bit expensive.. still.
Deliverance. I must have all the editions, hih. This UK paperback is all kinds of pretty. Must read soon.
Grischa: Ruin and Rising. I now own all the German editions of this trilogy. <3 And they are all stunning.
The Cavendish Home for Boys and Girls. Gorgeous German edition :D And I love this book so much. <3
The Bitter Kingdom. This took forever to arrive. But worth the wait. Because this paperback is stunning.
Kinslayer. New US paperback edition. <3 Sniffs. I adore this series. So good. And this book is beautiful.
Witch Hunt. Got via UK publisher. <3 Thank you so so much. I will be reading book one very soonish :D
Dragons. A few more of the gorgeous dragons. <3 They are perfect. And so damn cute. So much love.
Men In Black 3. I have watched movie 1&2 a few months ago, and wanted to see this. It was on sale :)
Ender's Game. This was on sale too; excited to see it. Heard of drama, but think movie will be good.
The Hobbit 2. This was also on sale, hih, so I had to buy it, as I didn't own this blu-ray version yet. <3

First we have the gorgeous kitty, hih. <3 This picture was taken today; she just had to be in it.
Ruin and Rising. This audiobook thing looks pretty gorgeous. <3 I'm getting another version too, hih :)
The Hobbit. Small yet gorgeous journal. <3 I thought it was bigger, though. Hmph. Still. It is pretty :)
Swag. Well. I'm disappointed with this, to be honest. I supported Authors for CCHS and was to get a swag pack. When I read the info about the swag pack, it said this: "Get a package of buttons, bookmarks, and other swag from your favorite YA authors!" So, yeah. A bit disappointed. Still. Pretty :)

Swag from Megan Crewe. I got these amazing bookmarks from Megan. <3 Thank you so much. They are gorgeous. And I cannot wait to add some of them to my wall of swag, hih :) I will also be doing swag giveaways. Once I'm feeling less lazy :p But yeah. Giveaway coming soon; it will be international. <3

Polaris. While I didn't love book one, Avalon, I did enjoy it a lot. So I just had to download this one via Edelweiss, hih :D I'm hoping I will love it. <3 When I decide to read it. Ack. I am not good at reading my eARCs :( I just don't feel like reading any of them. But I should. Maybe. Hopefully :) This do look all kinds of pretty, though. <3 And I adore Mindee. She is so kind and awesome.

More Instagram photos here. <3
