In My Mailbox #152

I feel like time is moving so fast. And I'm so behind on everything. Yet I feel like I'm always catching up on things. But I'm still so so far behind on comments. Hmph. But soon. I just need to feel better, which has not happened yet. More medicine on Monday, so hoping it will get better. <3 Anyway. I was going to read a lot this week, but that did not happen. Hah. But I did read two books :) And I'm going to start The Witch of Salt & Storm today. <3 Hoping I will love it. This week I read The Iron Trial. <3 which I loved. I also read The Accidental Highwayman, which I did not fully like. Then I shared another Cress Tuesday. <3 And I'm waiting on Atlantia. I'm also a part of the Firebug blog tour this week :D Where I have a guest post with Lish. <3 and an US/Canada giveaway. Go enter. And I'm sharing the cover for Rebellion. <3 And also the stunning cover for The Winner's Crime :D What did you get this week? <3

Shadows + Haze. YAY! I won these two gorgeous books from Tundra Books via the blog tour :D Thank you so so much. <3 I have yet to read these. But I will. Have also ordered myself the paperback of Shimmer, so I will read them soonish. Also. Shadows is signed. <3 SO pretty. Hoping that I will love the books.
Stormdancer. Foreign edition :D I had to buy this via bookdepo. Love the book. This one is stunning.
Godzilla. Had to buy this, as it was a bit cheaper. <3 3D version. I did really enjoy this move as well :)
Firebug. This book is amazing. <3 Love it so much. And oh, this hardcover is just so stunning. Love it.
The Scandalous Sisterhood of Prickwillow Place. I loved this book. So much. Finished copy is perfect.
Lark Rising. I didn't fully love this, but I wanted the finished copy. And isn't it just so pretty? Sigh.
The Infinite Sea. I'm unsure if I will ever read this. One day. But I wanted the paperbacks as well, hih :)
Salt & Storm. I wanted this cover as well, as the hardcover looks stunning. So pretty in person as well.
The Witch of Salt & Storm. Review copy gotten from UK publisher. <3 Will start this today. Excited.
Mockingjay. Been so long since I read this book. Sigh. But I needed this movie-tie in. <3 So so pretty.
Philip Pullman. Two gorgeous paperback books. <3 Didn't have these editions, so I had to buy them :D

If You Find Me. Huge thank you to Emily Murdoch for sending me these gorgeous signed books. <3 And that card is the best. Sniffs. So so happy. <3 Emily is amazing and so kind. There are STARS! Inside the books too. So cute :D Also got the signed winner books, so those have been shipped now as well :)

Plush. I adore My Blue Nose Friends. And I need to own all of them, hih. <3 These are just so gorgeous.

Angry Birds. This GORGEOUS Stella snoods I won from Angry Birds over at twitter. <3 Thank you so so much. It looks gorgeous. And I love the box it arrived in. And that card! Hah. I love it so so much. <3
