In My Mailbox #295

Well. This week started well. Then ended up being the worst. I got such stunning mail on Tuesday, ahh, and I love it all so, so much. It's perfect. Sniffs. And will be getting more next week too :D SO so excited. And I have been bathing every day, and it's the most perfect thing. So hot and delicious and I'm so happy. Yess. But then I started getting pains. And I'm now growing a huge abscess again. Goddamn it. Why? :( It's huge and painful and everything hurts. Not ready to die yet, sadly. Last time I had an abscess, I was at the hospital, in the beginning of April, which is when they cut it open and I got my wound that lasted for two and a half months. Never ever doing that again. So please, let this new one die on its own. I'm not going to a doctor with it. Never. Ugh. But yeah. Not feeling so good. Just waiting for it to get ready to die. And trying to survive the pain. Sitting hurts so much. Everything hurts. Sigh. But anyway. Despite all of this, I did have a pretty good week, before the pain :) Stunning mail. Lovely baths. I read two books; one good, one bad. Ugh. Hoping to read more this coming week. Eee. Getting so so many books that I'm excited about shortly :D Can't wait. Hope I will love them all, though. Ahh. This week I shared the cover for The Traitor Prince. <3 Gorgeous. I posted my review of Our Dark Duet :D This week I'm waiting on There's Someone Inside Your House :) Posted my review of The Smoking Hourglass. Had a good week :)

  2. Wow! You got a fantastic haul. Sorry that you're feeling sick again

  3. Ooooh so many pretties! And you got Before She Ignites! So pretty and i hope it's amazing! Aw, you kitty looks so comfy. I wish I could sleep that soundly! LOL Have a good week, Carina---your spa bath sounds wonderful!

  4. I'm sorry your health problems can't seem to get better! I'll be thinking about you! Maybe they'll get better all on their own.

    You did get some lovely mail, though! I hadn't decided whether to read Now I Rise or not, and maybe not now. :) But that Language of Thorns sampler looks gorgeous!

  5. Duuuude this is such a great haul! You always have good ones but I'd say this is a particularly good one! I still need to get Our Dark Duet. Totally jealous of your Language of Thorns swag.

    Is the abscess the same one/in the same location? Hopefully not! Well, hopefully it goes away and doesn't grow at all. I'm so sorry about this, Carina. I hope you get better soon!

    Have a great week. =)
