In My Mailbox #212

I haven't been commenting much lately. I'm behind on just about everything. Just feeling so badly and lazy and tired and exhausted all the time. But hoping to spend lots of time catching up this weekend. Will see what there is time for. Anyway. I did get some gorgeous mail this week :D Yay! Including, finally, my two hardcovers of Illuminae from Amazon. <3 Such slow shipping. Ugh. Still waiting on lots, though, as the book depository has gotten so very slow in shipping. Hmph. This week I read one amazing book. And one bad one. Which is just a bit depressing. Blog posts this week. I posted a preview review of Riders; full review to come in February :) This week I'm waiting on The Shadow Hour. <3 And then I read the aaamazing The Steep and Thorny Way :D Yay! I'm a bit sad that I'm not posting Cress Tuesdays anymore. Sniffs. But hoping to maybe start Winter Thursdays :) Just waiting for reply from Marissa. We'll see. Anyway. I'm behind on things, sigh, and I'm feeling crappy, yet I did have a good week. Got some pretty mail. Read an amazing book. Yeah. I'm pleased with that. What did you get this week?

The Good Dinosaur. More of these precious books :D YAY. I just cannot help but buy them all, lol. <3
Illuminae. YAY! My two pre-orders from Amazon FINALLY arrived :D They are so pretty. So much love.
The Golden Compass. I had to get a second copy of this special edition. I had to. It is just so perfect.
Frozen. I couldn't help but buy this one. Because pretty posters. No room for them, lol, but I needed it.
Carry On. EEEK! Thank you so much Andye and Lauren for this win :D It is perfection. And signed! Love.
Wolf By Wolf Postcard. Thank you so much Blue Bicycle Books and Little Brown Books for sending me this postcard, since I didn't get it with my signed pre-order. <3 Hugs. It means the most to me. It's so pretty.

More Instagram photos here. <3

  8. winter Thursdays sound so good! I say go for it!! :) you can even do Cinder Saturdays :) just because the series is finished doesn't mean you stop. :D anyways, I need to check out Illuminae because you seem to love it.. to be honest i really wasn't interested because it is by jay kristoff and also the book is too big.. but since it's actually on your header... maybe i should give it a try :D
