In My Mailbox #175

I was planning on being able to read so much more this week. But, yeah. That didn't happen. Sigh. Though I did read one book :) Instead I have been lazy. But I blame my health, as I've been feeling a bit crappy all the time. Sigh. Also, hospital trip went okay. I found it to be a bit torture, but glad to be done. Back again next week for medicine, then back again at the end of March for an MR. Hmph. Screw my town for not having a hospital or anything :p But yeah. Just want to get a bit healthy again. Maybe. Anyway. This week sister and I have watched the three Batman movies. <3 I kind of loved them. Though I find Gotham to be better. We have also seen Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk, and working on all the next Marvel movies. <3 I'm excited. Though I have seen some of them before :) This week I posted another Cress Tuesday. <3 I'm waiting on The Orphan Queen. And I read Gates of Thread and Stone. Not a big week for blog posting. Sigh. But I shall read more, as I got so many amazing ARCs this week :D I'm excited. And nervous. But fingers crossed I will love them all. <3 So happy. What did you get this week?
