In My Mailbox #178

I was planning on reading more this week. That didn't happen. Hmph. But I did read two books, and I'm happy with that. Plus, I'm going to start re-reading His Dark Materials today :D And I cannot wait. It will be so awesome. Sigh. These books are the best. I was on my third Tromsø trip yesterday, to get my x-ray. Glad to have it done. Though it will take about two weeks to get the results, sigh. Then I must wait for surgery. I don't want to wait more, so tired of being in a shitty mood and being sick. Hoping the time will go fast. Other than that I have had a good week; got some awesome mail; lots of pre-orders only :) Didn't have many blog posts this week, though. Ack. But four isn't that little. Maybe? Anyway. I read The Uninvited. <3 Which I really, really loved. Then I shared another Cress Tuesday. And I read The Jumbies, which I didn't like. I'm waiting on Daughter of Dusk this week :D Still waiting on some mail that I'm really excited about. Soon, hopefully. <3 Also, I want more lego as well. What did you get this week?

Shadow Scale. Another gorgeous edition that I didn't own yet; UK hardcover. <3 It is so big. Ack. And so damn gorgeous. Was to get a paperback.. instead got another US hardcover :( I now have 3. Ack.
The Walls Around Us. I really loved this book many months ago. And it is so damn pretty. I love it :D
The Fault in Our Stars. I supported this thing back in December to get this book :) It is pretty gorgeous.
Big Hero 6. I must have all the books that involves this gorgeous movie. <3 This manga is awesome.
Unremembered Poster. Eeek! Thank you so much Jessica. <3 This poster is all kinds of gorgeous. Love.

Frozen. This poster collection thingy is all kinds of gorgeous. The posters are so pretty. I needed it :)
Frost. Oh! And I got this Norwegian edition of the Frozen songs. Ack. I just really wanted to own it.
The Hobbit. Yay for getting more lego :D I want all of it. But expensive. But buying it all soooonish.
HTTYD 2 + Divergent. You know.. I need to own all the movies on DVD, though I never watch those.
Thor. I have always wanted to own my very own small Thor. So I had to buy him, hih. He's so pretty.
Baymax. Yay for making my Big Hero 6 collection grow bigger :D He is pretty adorable. I love Baymax.
Bukowski. I need all the plushes from this brand. He is so cute! He also have wings. Oh. I love him.
Hair Flowers. Okay, I should probably not share about this, but it was so gorgeous :D And I love it so.

Witch Hunter. Big thank you to Orchard Books (UK publisher) for accepting my request on Netgalley to read and review this book. <3 I shall be reading it soonish, I think :D As I'm pretty excited about it.
Fish. This fish is all kinds of gorgeous. And expensive. Figured I needed some "pretty" decorations :)
Skull. This skull was pretty awesome too, and I have wanted it for a long time. So I just had to buy it :D

  7. The Walls Around Us has such a pretty cover Carina. I still need to pick up a book by Nova yet, so seeing how much you liked this book of hers I may consider giving it a go soon. I'm sorry your health hasn't been that great lately, I hope things get better for you soon *hugs*

  12. I'm very curious to see what you think of The Witch Hunter! I was very disappointed. :( It's not a bad book, but not terribly exciting either. :/ But I hope you have better luck!

  13. I'm OBSESSED with that UK hardcover of Shadow Scale! I love that it doesn't have the border and the dragon is so big! I kind of want just to order that one for myself, even though it really won't match my copy of Seraphina (which I haven't even read yet... Oops.)

    I hope you're having a great week and feeling better Carina!
