In My Mailbox #157

Road trip is over. Which makes me very happy, as those four days of driving was torture. Okay, I didn't drive, but sitting in a car is all kinds of torture anyway. But yeah. I am now home, and that is all kinds of awesome. <3 Though it took me forever to catch up to some things. And I am still months behind on blog comments :( I am so so sorry. I just never seem to have time for anything. Sigh. But soon. I hope. I do read all my comments, and I love them all so much. <3 You guys are the best. Thank you. Anyway. This week I have read nothing. UGH. I just haven't had time after coming home from my road trip Monday night.. but today. Today I shall read. Most likely. I have so many books that need to be read. Just need to make myself start, hih. Though I had no reviews this week, and not many blog posts, I did post a little bit. <3 A new Cress Tuesday teaser. I'm waiting on Kalahari. And yesterday I posted a new giveaway. I'm giving away some All Our Yesterdays swag. <3 It's gorgeous. Anyway. I did get a lot this week. Not all that many books, but bunch of other things :D And I love it all so so much. <3 Sigh. Getting mail is still the best. My new iPad Mini! Dies. It kills me how gorgeous it is. Anyway. I had a good week. Still waiting on lots of mail, but hoping it shall arrive soon. What did you get this week? <3
