In My Mailbox #154

Remember how I said last week that I didn't get that many books? Hah. This week I got less. Hmph. Because nothing is arriving. Shipping is so slow. And I am waiting on so much. Hoping it will all arrive early next week. <3 ANYWAY. Today my blog is turning 3 years old :D And I'm celebrating with an international swag giveaway. <3 Go enter. Also, I did post a lot of posts this week. Huh. EVEN! One each day. I don't usually do that. So fun to have done so this week, hih. <3 First. I read Thornhill and Willowgrove. Which I'm so sorry to say that I did not love :( They were good, just, not that good. Then another Cress Tuesday. <3 50 weeks already! And I'm waiting on The Stolen Moon. <3 And then I re-read the very amazing Seraphina. <3 So much love! And I read the short story Seraphina: The Audition. And I shared the gorgeous cover for Please Remain Calm. <3 Anyway. Despite not getting all that much this week, I'm happy with what did arrive :D WELL. I wrote this before the mail arrived today. And I got 10 pre-orders today. <3 Nothing of what I'm waiting for, sigh, but still. My own pre-orders are awesome, hih. I have so much to read, though. Ack. The Young Elites next, I think. What did you get this week? <3

Don't forget to enter my US/Canada giveaway of a hardcover of Firebug. <3 Awesome book. Enter here.
