In My Mailbox #190

I'm heartbroken this week. Because such amazing people are getting that very special ARC box of Six of Crows. And it is breaking my heart. Because I did not get the email about it. So I am not getting it. And I cannot even begin to tell you how much I NEED this box and this ARC. I have loved Leigh since before Shadow and Bone officially published. I have loved all her books and short stories. I have toooooons of her books. I need this. Ugh. So yeah. I'm a tiny bit heartbroken about it, because I'm not getting it, and I'm so jealous, and I need it, and yeah. Trying to not think about it :) But anyway. This week besides all that have actually been pretty good. Healing is going slowly. Removing stitches on monday. It still hurts to sit in some ways, so I haven't been able to see Jurassic World yet. Sigh. But I did re-watch the Jurassic Park movies this week :) Which I have seen so many times, heh. But lots of love. I also got so so much amazing mail this week. Ugh. I cannot. There are so many kind people out there. <3 Thank you all so much. I love you all. So happy with everything I got and everything I bought. But oh. I still haven't read anything. Been more than two weeks now since I last read something. Rebel Mechanics is on the table next to me. Hoping to start it today or tomorrow. Fingers crossed. Oh! I made my entire post, then suddenly remembered that I hadn't written in my blog posts for this week. Ack. I never forget that. Huh. Anyway. This week I still haven't read anything.. but I did post some other things :) First I shared the stunning cover for Their Fractured Light. <3 Then I shared about MadCap Retreats with Courtney C. Stevens :) I posted another awesome Cress Tuesday. <3 This week I'm waiting on Six of Crows. I posted about Supernatural :D And I shared the beautiful cover for Ravenous. <3 What did you get this week?

I just finished building the final one, the big one :) Love them all. But big one had a missing piece, sobs, so waiting for them to send me a new one. Sigh. Anyway. I love it all. I adore building lego, hih. It's just so much fun :)
Blu-Ray Player. This wasn't supposed to be bought. Cost me a bit, but goddamn it is gorgeous. And so small. And I wanted a new one. Mine was getting noisy. This one works perfectly so far. I love love it.

Thank you Marissa. <3 Thank you my special friend for getting this for me :) It means the world to me. I adore the poster. Ugh. It is STUNNING. On my wall shortly :D Love the swag too. <3

  3. YAY for getting amazing things in the mail!! And that poster is so super gorgeous!!
    I hope you'll be healing great and once the stitches come out it'll hurt less so you can go see Jurassic World!!

  4. Great mail this week! I love the HC Illuminae arc. I started my pb copy last night and loving it so far. I didn't get to read today but hopefully this evening. I wasn't a fan of Trial by Fire but I do think that cover is so pretty. I'll be very curious to see what folks think of it.

  5. Aw. Sorry you about Six of Crows. I know how much you want that book! Maybe this week?

  6. Firewalker sounds like a great read. Hope you enjoy and have a wonderful week.

  7. Aww, too bad you didn't get Six of Crows like you were hoping. I'm sure there will be other opportunities to get it, so fingers crossed for you! And oh, Jurassic World was a fun movie (and those legos!! So awesome!) so I think you will love it too!

  8. Ahhh I love the IKO approved stickers!! And all the rest of your Fairest swag---gorgeous! And so very very jealous of your Firewalker ARC! Enjoy all your new goodies!
