In My Mailbox #232

I had a good week. Got some pretty mail, but not many books, hih. And still waiting on all my Pop figures. Ugh. They should have arrived this week. Hopefully early next week. Fingers crossed. I read one book this week, sigh. But currently reading a new one, which I will finish tomorrow morning, hopefully :) I'm mostly just stressed. Hospital this Tuesday and Wednesday, so I must sleep over there. First day is medicine and spending all day not eating anything, and getting that thing up my nose, and being in stomach pain. Sigh. I am not looking forward to it. And next day is checking everything, but hopefully I get to be asleep. Then finally home. But yeah. It will be awful. And painful to get that thing in my nose. And I am just not looking forward to it. So stressing a little bit. But it must be done, I suppose. Sigh. Hoping they figure out that I don't need to take this medicine any longer, because it doesn't really work, and I'm in pain most of the time. Hmph. Anyway. Enough about all of that :) This week I blogged a little bit. <3 Happy with it. I took part in the Blog Tour for The Darkest Corners; posted my review of it :) This week I'm waiting on The Forgetting. <3 I posted my review of A Tyranny of Petticoats. Not the best. Sigh. But still good. My latest Book Collection is books by Elizabeth Fama :D Gorgeous. Love them all.

The Girl Who Drank the Moon. I adored the first book I read by this author, The Witch's Boy. I still haven't read her earlier books, ack, but one day. <3 I had to get this one. So thrilled that I got approved on Netgalley :D Yay. But want print ARC too. <3 I have started this one, and I like it, but it is different from what I thought it would be. Huh. But I do like it so far :) And it's so cute.

More Instagram photos here. <3

  2. Ooh, such fun mail! I love all the swag from Alyssa! :) And I totally didn't put two and two together that Kelly Barnhill wrote The Witch's Boy--which I've always wanted to read! :) I hope everything goes well for you at the hospital this week Carina!

  3. Sending good thoughts your way for your hospital visit and all the tests being done as painlessly as possible! I hope that a lot of awesome mail will be waiting for you when you get back home!

  4. I hope your hospital visit is painless as possible as Pili said. I know about the stress prior to stuff like that. Ugh, the waiting is awful. I hope it all goes well. Lovely mail this week! I've not seen Sleepy Hollow as of yet. Would you recommend? I really liked The Witch's Boy even though I'm not a huge fan of MG so I bet I'd like her newest too.

  5. Love all your mailbox goodies!

    I am sending you all kinds of positive thoughts for your hospital stay. I hope everything goes as good as possible. :) Hugs!

  6. I hope everything went and will go well! Hopefully not as bad as you might think. So glad that swag arrived safely! I like that the swag for each of us arrived in such a way that we featured them in the same STS week. =) I can't wait for you to get your other certain thing!

    Have a lovely week, Carina. =)

  7. You must have quite the collection of movies! I hope you'll get all the books that you're waiting for, Carina. <3
