In My Mailbox #223

Today has been a good week. I have read more. I have blogged tons more. I got some gooorgeous mail. Still missing some, though. Hmph. My health has been the worst, but I'm dealing with it. Medicine this Tuesday, and I simply cannot wait. It better make me feel better this time. Sigh. I'm still the most obsessed with Miraculous Ladybug, which is only getting better. I just wish all the episodes were out. Hmph. This week I saw The Revenant at the movies; it was pretty good. Ending was a bit too much open, though. I got accepted for Some Kinds of Happiness :D On my 8th try. Yes yes yes. I read it. I loved it. It was my 10th read this year, and my first 5 star rating. <3 Yesss. This week I blogged so much. I posted my review of Burn. <3 I took part in the Starflight launch day blitz :) This week I'm waiting on Summer Days & Summer Nights. I read The Secret Horses of Briar Hill. <3 I shared the gorgeous cover of Blood For Blood :D I shared my review of Some Kind of Happiness. <3 And then I shared the Wires & Nerve by Marissa Meyer news :D This week was good. But goddamn it. I still haven't gotten my hardcovers of Stars Above. And Fairest paperbacks. Because the book depository shipped them all in the same package. And it has now been 10 days since it shipped. I hate waiting. Damn them. Hopefully it will get here Monday. But then I cannot read it until Wednesday, since I will be gone for hospital all day Tuesday. Ugh. So, so annoying. I'm a bit angry, lol. But anyway. It is finally getting more light outside and it is so pretty. The sun is back. It is lighter a bit longer each day. Finally. <3 Soon I will start to take bookish collection pictures :) When I find the energy. Sigh. What did you get this week?
