In My Mailbox #167

This has been the worst week of my life. It started last Sunday, with pain in my back. And I remembered this pain from two years ago, when I got my first abscess. I was hoping I was wrong. But the pain got worse. And it started to swell. On the same damn place as my first abscess. Which I didn't think was possible. And.. I have it in the worst place ever :( behind on my butt crack. Sigh. It's awful. Because of this I have been in an awful pain all week, hurts to sit, hurts to stand, hurts to lie down. Haven't slept much these past few days. Was waiting for it to explode, and five minutes before I was planning on going to the doctor today it did explode on its own. It hurt a little, and a lot of blood came out, though it isn't all dead yet. But it will be shortly, I hope. Anyway. The pain is less now. And I hope this is the very last time I get an abscess. They are the worst. Having Morbus Crohn sucks. Sigh. ANYWAY! Despite having the worst week with my health, and not being able to catch up, I did read some amazing books. And I'm all kinds of happy about that. I re-read the amazing The Winner's Curse for the third time. <3 Still the best. Then I read The Winner's Crime :D Which I loved so much. I shared another Cress Tuesday. <3 And this week I'm waiting on The Accidental Afterlife of Thomas Marsden. <3 Excited about this book. Oh! And I'm currently reading The Glass Arrow, which I will share my review for later tonight. Anyway. I was supposed to get a lot of pre-orders this week. Didn't happen. Such slow mail these days. Sigh. But next week! Next week everything better arrive :) But either way, I'm thrilled about what I did get this week. <3 The 100! Swaaaag! So much love. <3 Happy about all. What did you get this week?

Joyride. The Glass Arrow. How.. How did I manage to forget sharing about these two books? Ugh. I'm not good at remembering ecopies, lol. But anyway. Got Joyride via auto-download from Macmillan at Netgalley :D If I don't get print ARC, I will be reading this. <3 So excited. And I got The Glass Arrow from Tor Teen to read via Netgalley. <3 Just posted my review for it :) Lots of love.

  2. Glad you're feeling a bit better. I've heard great things about Talon. Hope you enjoy it.

  3. Ooh what a lovely selection of reads. I have The 100 but have yet to read and watch it. Have heard wonderful things though! Wishing you a speedy recovery - that seriously sounds very painful, so hope you get better soon.

  4. :( I hope you'll feel better soon, hun. The disease sounds awful.

  5. Oh Carina- I'm so sorry for your pain. I hope things get better. :-( I can't imagine how that must feel.

    You got some wonderful stuff this week. I've yet to read Golden Son though I'm very excited about. I've heard such positive things.

  6. I'm sorry to hear about your pain and I hope you feel better soon! I love The 100 and I should catch up with the second season soon. I just couldn't find the time to watch it. Happy reading :)!

  7. I love The 100, fantastic tv series :) Looking forward to watch the second season :) Joyride sound like an interesting book to read, love the cover.

  8. Ah! So cool! I love all the Monstrous stuff!! That was such a fun (but dark) book! Oh we love The 100 in my house, too---so sad that I've missed the first half of the second season, now I have to wait for it come on DVD or Netflix!

  9. Oigh! You poor thing, I'm so so sorry that you ended up with the abcess again, but at least it burst on its own and now the pain is more managable *hugs* Sending loads of good vibes for you and for it healing fast!

    I hear you about the damned slow mail!! Hmphm!! I'm still await my Kindle cover and my Ensnared preorder!!! And 2 BookOutlet orders! =(

    Golden Son looks so so gorgeous!! I definitely NEED to get the hardcovers for the series as soon as possible!

  10. I'm just so sorry that you're not feeling well, C. That sounds awful and so painful. :( I wish there was something more I could do for you. I'm glad you're starting to feel better, but I wish you didn't have to deal with it at all.

    Love seeing your next books! I bought Reborn in the store for myself today. I'm excited to read it. I'm also looking forward to Joyride! *crosses fingers for happy ending*

    Happy reading, love!

  11. Awww honey! I hope things get better quickly! Just imagine you're in a valley, and you can only go up from here :)

    I loved Golden Son, Alienated, The Glass Arrow! I have yet to read Reborn, but I can't wait. I hope you enjoy all of your new books!

    Thanks for visiting my blog! Have a fabulous week :)

  12. Reborn and Glass Arrow looks like it will be a good one. Hope you enjoy and have a great week.

  13. Aw, no! I'm sorry your week was bad! I'm glad you at least had some good reading to help.

    I need to get into The 100 ASAP! And I'm thinking the same about Red Rising. Everyone says the books are so good, I need to start them. :)

    I hope you'll feel better this week, Carina!
