In My Mailbox #191

I read two books this week. Which I'm pretty happy about. Still heartbroken about not getting the Six of Crows package. Sigh. But this week I did get some other amazing mail, and I couldn't be happier about it all. <3 Love knowing such amazing people. But yeah. This week was supposed to be happy. I removed my stitches this monday. Which hurt like hell. But then, of course, instead of healing like it should, I have gotten a wound on my wound. It looks bad. And I cannot go swimming yet. And it hurts my heart so much and I'm so sad. For once I just wanted something to go right. I mean, I finally got to do that awful surgery. I removed my stitches. It was supposed to heal. But it didn't. And oh, I'm so depressed about it. Sigh. But anyway. Other than all of that, I did have a good week. I saw San Andreas :D Which I loved. And I finally got to see Jurassic World, which I also loved to pieces. <3 Though not watching 3D movies at the cinema anymore; it sucks :p This week I posted a bunch of blog posts. I read Rebel Mechanics. Which disappointed me. I posted another Cress Tuesday. <3 This week I'm waiting on Burn :D I shared the news about Stars Above by Marissa Meyer :) I read The Last Good Day of the Year, which I liked a lot. I shared the gorgeous cover for The Shadow Queen. <3 I love it so. This week I also posted my very first twitter and instagram giveaway. Both are international :D Links below. Please enter. <3 Hoping to read much more this upcoming week. Fingers crossed. And hoping to heal. What did you get this week?

  1. I'm so sorry about your wound not healing as it should have :-( Hopefully they can help give you something for the pain?
    What a great haul! I loved Illuminae! Such a wonderful story and book. I can't wait to own the final version. I want alllll the versions, haha.

  2. Hate when wounds not healing fast enough. Maybe they will give you medicine to help the healing process. Illuminae is a huge arc, but I think it's going to be amazing.

  3. Reading two books is great! One day I'm going to read at least one book in a week. ;) I'm sorry about the Six of Crows package. :( That really sucks. <3

    And I am so so so sorry about your surgery. :( That is just awful, I'm so sorry. I hope something can be done about it.

    I've never seen any of the Jurassic Park movies before! It's nice that you had that fun at least. <3 I'm not fond of 3d movies either, mostly because they make the movie darker because of the dumb 3d glasses. :(

    Stars Above sounds so fascinating, I need to read The Lunar Chronicles The Shadow Queen sounds really interested, just one more fantasy book to add to the list of fantasy books I need to seriously read someday. :)

    Yay! That is some awesome Courtney C. Stevens swag! I want to read all of her books, especially the newest one..


  4. YAY for Vengeance Road! I'm excited to start reading that one myself. Same with Illuminae. I hope you enjoy all of your new books!

    Have a lovely weekend, Carina :)

  6. I'm glad you've had a stellar reading week, C. And also bummed out for you for not getting Six of Crows. Anyway, these books look awesome (especially Illuminae). I hope you'll have a great weekend!
