In My Mailbox #170

This week has been a bit busy. And I'm not sure how I feel about that. First, I'm done with the hospital thing for this year, and I'm so happy about that. Because thursday and friday were pretty much torture :p And I'm so happy to be done with it. Plus, my damn abscess is finally healed, so I'm pleased about that too. Just feeling a bit tired today, and I'm far behind, again. I also didn't get to read much this week, which makes me sad, but yeah, didn't have time for it. But I did get some awesome pre-orders in the mail. <3 And they are all gorgeous. Sorry for the two different photos, lol, it is finally starting to become light outside, which was earlier today when I took the first picture, before the mail arrived. It arrived late today, so the second picture is the two books that I got, with my light on, since it was dark already. Ack. But yeah. They do look gorgeous either way :) I'm still waiting on Fairest, though :( Sad face. The Book Depository didn't ship it until yesterday. Wtf. I'm not pleased. Hope they arrives next week. Also sad, because three paperbacks arrived damaged this week. Will have to complain about them all :\ Sigh. Makes me sad. Anyway. Not that many blog posts this week, because of busy week. But yeah, I did post another Cress Tuesday. <3 And I'm waiting on Rook :D This week I only read one book, Red Queen. Which I posted a preview review of :) Then I shared the gorgeous cover for Neverseen. <3 And oh! The 100 this week. So good. But sobs. THAT ENDING. Cannot wait for the next one :D What did you get this week?

Don't forget my US only giveaway of one hardcover of The Winner's Crime. <3 Enter here.

The Mime Order. I haven't read book one yet, but soon. Probably. Many love these books, hih. Pretty.
A Cold Legacy. I, well, I loved book one. But never reading book two. Sad face. But they are gorgeous.
The Stolen Moon. Yay! I loved this book a lot. It is all kinds of awesome. And oh so gorgeous. Adore it.
The Lost Planet. Yay for gorgeous and small paperback edition. <3 I pretty much adored this book too.
Soulprint. Pretty US hardcover of this awesome book. <3 I enjoyed it so much. This book is awesome.
Cress. Ah, finally the US paperback is out. <3 And it is beyond stunning. Oh, this book is so amazing.
The Sin Eater's Daughter. It arrived very damaged. I'm not pleased. Sad face. But it still looks pretty.
City of Heavenly Fire. You know, I must own all the editions. <3 This is the new UK paperback of it :)
Plush. Yay! Mom got me this gorgeous bear at the hospital. <3 And it is so precious. And soft. Love it.
Baymax. I had to buy this gorgeous when I saw him :D Love! And kitty too. Adore it so so much. But sobs, I haven't gotten to see the movie yet. Damn my town for not getting it in English. Sad face.
How To Train Your Dragon. Meek! New looking dragons. They are pretty adorable. And a bit different. I had to buy them. <3 But expensive too :( Sad face. Still need two different ones, hih, soon I think :)

Invaded. YAY! Pre-order arrived today. <3 I read this one many months ago. I love this book. Gorgeous.
Dearest. I adored book one, but been forever since I read it. Planning on reading all three someday :)

How To Train Your Dragon 2. My collection of the Funko Pop! HTTYD dragons. <3 They are all so gorgeous. Hiccup is adorable. Anyway. I have had Toothless, Hiccup and Astrid for a long time. But couldn't afford the other three yet, because of crazy shipping prizes. Ack. But then they got a little bit cheaper, so had to buy them. <3 The three dragons on the right are new this week. And oh so gorgeous. I adore them all. Do you own any of them?

More Instagram photos here. <3

  6. Lucky you :) So many great and beautiful things :)

  7. I want to get a copy from that Cress paperback too (my name is in it, woopwoop) I can't wait to read Dearest, I love the covers from that series. Your HTTYD funko pops are cool :D

  8. Yay for Cress paperback x2! I really want to buy two copies, but I have no more room on my shelves, so....
    And ahhh, those Pop! figures are SO adorable. I want to buy only ONE, but it's impossible to choose which one. I'll just wait until I see the one that just clicks with me. ;D

  9. Loved Invaded and hope you do too -- have a great week.

  10. Wow! So many great books! I'm so excited about The Sin Eater's Daughter! The cover is gorgeous! I haven't read Alienated yet but it's on the top of tbr list! So excited for Cress though! I just finished reading Cinder and it was Amazing! And can I just say how perfect the How to Train your Dragon movies are!
    Happy Reading :D

  11. Great haul, C. How did you get The Sin Eater's Daughter already? Is that an ARC? So lucky. :)

  12. Carina I'm sorry that you had such a tough week, but I'm glad that you're feeling better! It's great when you get such a great book haul! Also your funko pop collection is adorable! I was in Forbidden Planet the other day and I wanted to buy everything! I hope you have a great week!

  13. I'm glad you're out of the hospital! And hopefully feeling better. I liked The Mime Order, but not as much The Sin Eater's Daughter or A Cold Legacy (the latter was okay, not terrible). I hope you enjoy all of your new books, Carina!

    Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!

  16. Eeeee I love the Baymax figure and kitty, too! Sorry your lovely Sin Eater's Daughter was damaged! That's a bummer. :(
    Cress...sigh...always gorgeous.

  17. Ah, Invaded is SO gorgeous! And I pre-ordered Soulprint for my Kindle. :)

    Happy reading! <3

  18. I'm so glad you're feeling better and done with the hospital! That's good news!
