In My Mailbox #177

I'm unsure about this week. I got some aaaaamazing mail, and it means the world to me. <3 But my health has been so crappy. I just want to feel better. But it doesn't seem to be happening. Sigh. But enough about that. I watched Cinderella last night, and it was pretty amazing :) I loved it. AND THEN! Frozen Fever! Yeah. It was pretty adorable. I loved it. So excited that there will be another long movie, hih. <3 Soon seeing Insurgent, though I am not excited about it :p Only read two books this week, but I'm happy with that. One of them took me three days, so it felt like much more, hah :p This week I read The Novice. Which I did not like. Sigh. Then I shared another Cress Tuesday. <3 I'm waiting on The Last Good Day of the Year. Then I read Black Dove, White Raven. <3 It was a bit meh. And then I shared the gorgeous cover for Winter :D Perfection! So so gorgeous. Sigh. I love it. I'm happy about this week, but yeah, health sucks and I just hate it so much. Sniffs. Well. I'm reading The Uninvited next :D Then I'm looking at all my ARCs. So much to read, so little time. But perfect :) What did you get this week? <3

A Darker Shade of Magic. Huuuge thank you to Leah at Tor Books for sending this gorgeous book to me. <3 I cannot wait to read it :D Soon! And first edition! Swoon. I love this cover so much. So happy :)
This is Not a Test. My precious! Thank you so much Courtney. <3 I won this gorgeous from her :) Love.
The Orphan Queen. Signed pre-order from Books of Wonder. <3 PERFECT. All the swag! So much love :)

Big Hero 6. Yay! These pretties finally arrived today. They are both gorgeous. This movie is awesome.

Orange is the New Black. This was on sale, and I wanted it, because many love this series :) Curious.
Heroes. I remember watching and liking season one. Soon trying to watch all four seasons of this ;p
Transformers. I wanted to watch these. Soon! Cheap. But.. had forgotten that I had won nr 4 :( Have 2.
Annabelle. I really liked The Conjuring. And I'm curious about this movie. Just really hoping it is good.
Percy Jackson. I only got this because it was cheap. And I love the books. Shall not watch these, hah.
Under the Dome. This was on sale too, and I am so curious about this show. So I'm hoping to love it :D
Fantasia 2000. Eeek. The last Disney Classic that I missed having in Blu-ray. <3 Well, a few of the first classics doesn't exist in blu-ray yet. Hmph. How mean. But I own those on DVD. This one is pretty :)
The Monuments Men. I bought this because it was really cheap. And it do look pretty good. I hope so :)

Panserbjørn. This is my very own Iorek from His Dark Materials. <3 I had to buy him. So gorgeous. 

Signed books. <3 Oh my gosh. MY PRECIOUS. Seriously. Such an awesome part of my life. <3 Signed and personalized books means the world to me. And these are so perfect! And I love these three authors to pieces. Sigh. So happy about these signed books. <3 They are so special to me. Sniffs. So so perfect.

Hidden Huntress. I got accepted to read this via Netgalley. <3 So happy about that. Now I shall be reading Stolen Songbird soon, I think :) I'm excited. Yet a bit sad, as I did some peeking at this sequel, and one thing is bothering me. Hmph. Still, curious about these books :) Have you read them? I'm excited.

This week I also got rid of my old couch. Which was huge. But comfortable. Though I wasn't able to sit in it much, because of cat hair, and the nintendo wii u, and the tv being in the way. Hmph. But. It was also too big to get down the stairs; I got it inside through the window, but couldn't do that now. So grandpa had to murder it. Ack. So it ended up pretty dead. Sad face. As it was so expensive. Sigh. But I have had it for two years.. so not fully a waste? Maybe. Either way, I got a new one, much smaller, as you see. And not that good to sit it, hmph, but it is most for my sister and nephew :) As I sit in my awesome chair, hah. But I like this new couch. My place now looks a whole lot bigger. And I like the way it looks. So I'm pleased with it :) Also, see the old couch here. Somewhere. Wait. See the old couch below. Sharing a photo of that one too, hih. It was so big o.O What do you think? :) New cat place too.

More Instagram photos here. <3
