In My Mailbox #180

I feel like this have been an awesome reading week. Last week I re-read His Dark Materials. <3 Which was the very best thing. I read three books this week, and starting one today :) I got some gorgeous plush I ordered. <3 And a few pre-orders too :D I have talked to a lot of amazing people online, like always. So those have been the good parts. But then. The bad. My fucked up health. It is getting worse. My hole is still there, still bad, and I'm still waiting on news about surgery. Ugh. But a couple of days ago I got a new painful bump. Still hoping it is just a bump. But it hurt like goddamn crazy every single second and it is huuge and starting to turn blue on the edges. And I am almost positive it is another abscess. My third one. And in the worst place ever. And I just. I'm almost wishing it would kill me, this pain, because I'm so sick of being sick. I'm so sick of getting these things. No one else does. But I get everything. And I don't want it anymore. Sobs. Sigh. I just.. I want some cheering up. Sigh. Enough about that. This week I posted another awesome Cress Tuesday. <3 I'm waiting on Daughter of Deep Silence. <3 I read The Storyspinner :D Then I read Joyride. And then I read A Darker Shade of Magic. <3 Which was perfect. Sniffs. I also shared the cover for Illuminae :D Gorgeous. And I shared the cover for Starflight. <3 So pretty. A bit bad, and a bit good happened this week :) What did you get this week? <3

Walk on Earth a Stranger. EEEEK! Edelweiss & Harper Teen is the very best sometimes. <3 So so happy that I am auto-approved by them. Sigh. It is the best thing. And oh.
