In My Mailbox #273

I only got to read one book this week, but I'm happy with that :) It took such a long time before the book arrived, and so I haven't had time to start something new yet. But hopefully tomorrow :) Right now I'm about to start playing my Pokemon Sun a little bit. Eee. I'm excited. And gosh. Leaving for Chicago in just 10 days. What. I cannot wait :D Would love some tips about it all, though. Anyone? This was mostly a good week. My health isn't the best, but I got my medicine, so hopefully starting to feel better soonish. Yay. I'm slowly starting to catch up with commenting, soon I shall be done with that too :) And eee, the sun is almost back. So very soon I will be able to take lighter pictures. So happy about that. But not just yet. Didn't blog much this week, but still two posts. This week I'm waiting on Here Lies Daniel Tate. <3 And I posted my review of Shadows of the Lost Sun :D I also got a bunch of gorgeous mail this week. Yay! I love it all so much. I'm still waiting on more pop figures, though, lol. But now only missing one Harry Potter pop to have my complete collection. Eee. The Bellatrix one. <3 She's not in stock yet. But then I'm also missing some of the store-limited editions.. ugh. Really hoping to find them all in Chicago :D Fingers crossed. Anyway. I just love buying pop figures. <3 Running out of room for them too.. sigh. But not yet.

Carve the Mark. I'm pretty excited about shortly reading this one :D This I will love most of it. I hope so.
And I Darken. Finally bought the international paperback :) Love. Sadly, damaged, so getting a new one.
Shadows of the Lost Sun. Eee. It finally arrived this week :D Already read and loved it. <3 My precious.
A Gathering of Shadows. Gorgeous paperback edition :D Pretty. Soon I will finally read this second book.
Magnus Chase. I still haven't read the Magnus Chase book, ack, but I still had to have this one too :D
Heartless. Eee! Thank you so much to the awesome Pan Macmillan UK for this gorgeous book + swag :D
Pokemon Sun. I just had to buy this game. So excited to play it :D I have always loved Pokemon. Always.
Pop Figures. Eee! More have arrived :D Only missing Bellatrix. <3 Have all the new disney princesses :)

More Instagram photos here. <3


  1. Great stack of books this week. Not sure if I like the UK Heartless cover...I think the US got a better one, haha.

  2. Reading one book is still more than most people! I'm curious to see what you'll think of Carve the Mark (you know my thoughts). I like the paperback of A Gathering of Shadows.

    I don't know much about Chicago, unfortunately! I hope you have a great time though. :D

    I hope you enjoy all of your new books! Have an awesome weekend, Carina. =)

  3. Reading one book is okay. You got a lot of great books this week. I hope you love all of your new books.

  4. You're going Chicago Carina? I'm hugely jealous! I hope you get to do lots of book shopping there. And I really need to get to my copies of Heartless and A Gathering of Shadows. I hope you have a great week! :)

  5. I hope you'll have fun in Chicago, C! Make sure to visit a bookstore (or two).

    Have a great week!

  6. Hope you enjoy Heartless! Chicago is probably going to be very cold, but it's an amazing city! Must get pizza at Lou Malnati's and go to the top of the Willis Tower (used to be the Sears tower). The views are wonderful! Have fun and keep warm! :)

  7. Oh I would love to see all you Harry Potter Funko pops together! Maybe once you've finally acquired Bellatrix :) Hope you have a good time in Chicago!

  8. Lots of fun books and treats!

    Going to Chicago will be exciting! I haven't been, but I have heard Lake Michigan is beautiful and that a boat tour is fun- though maybe not in the winter. The Sears Tower (now Willis) is supposed to have an amazing view. Deep dish pizza is something they are famous for and I have heard the city is all around great. Make sure to bring warm clothes and I can't wait to hear about your trip. Have fun!

  9. Oooh, I love the Heartless stuff! I just put in my order for the UK paperback that's coming out in February, it's my favorite cover of them all! :D I love the new funkos! Fun haul, Carina! ♥


I love getting comments. Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog :)
