In My Mailbox #172

I have gotten so much awesome this week. <3 A few gorgeous ARCs. Signed books. Swag. And lots of pre-orders :D Yesss. Still waiting on a bunch of things I have won, but maybe next week. <3 Fingers crossed. Either way, I'm very happy with this week. Okay, fine, my health is still the worst. My fistula is getting bigger back there. And I'm just. I'm waiting for the hospital to write and let me know if I'm getting an appointment or not. Ack. It will probably need surgery. Hmph. I don't want to, but I also want it gone. Right away. Because I want to swim. And bath. And I can't do either of those things. Sad face. Anyway. I posted a bunch of blog posts this week :D And will be posting a preview review tonight. <3 And a cover reveal tomorrow. Yess. Anyway. This week. I read and reviewed Fairest. <3 Which I loved. I was a part of the Red Queen Blog Tour where I posted my full three star review :) I shared another Cress Tuesday teaser. <3 I posted Have You Seen This... about the ARCs I'm looking for :) I'm waiting on Lost. <3 I shared the awesome cover for Ungodly :D I was a part of The Glass Arrow Blog Tour. <3 So yeah. A lot of posts this week :D Though only one book read. Hmph. But yess, more than halfway through Shadow Scale. <3 Will finish it today :) Full review to be posted in March.

  5. Signed copies are always the best!! So glad that you got so many of your pending parcels this week! I'm hoping to get all my pending preorders in the mail next week!!
    I do hope you'll get the appointment for the hospital, getting surgery is no fun but getting rid of the fistula will be worth it! Sending loads of good vibes and hugs your way!

  6. Wow. Great haul, you got a lot fantastic things. Wish I had the space and the money to buy all this too. Red queen sound like an interesting, many people like it, so I have it on my wish list.

  7. You didn't get an ARC, but at least you got a shiny hardcover from Monstrous :D I should get a copy from The glass arrow, it sounds good and I like the cover design. Those Disney boxes <3

  8. AH, my dear, you always have such fun things in your hauls!! I love all the Big Hero Six stuff and the Kendare Blake poster!! Oh, and I love the Monstrous swag!! I need one of those bookmarks!!

  10. I got The Glass Arrow too. :D I love my copy. And you have FOUR copies of Cress?! Crazy woman. :P
    I hope your week gets better, lady. I'm sorry you're going to have to get surgery. :(

  11. You certainly did get a lot this week! I'm glad you got replacement copies of Cress--can't have damaged ones! Red Queen really is gorgeous, isn't it? I didn't love it either, but I really want a copy. :)

    I hope you'll get everything worked out with the hospital and get to feeling better!
