In My Mailbox #312

This week have been pretty exhausting. My spa bath had to be taken down on Sunday, which I'm so sad about, because I love my 40c baths outside the most. But it's too cold in the winter, and so now it has to be down until May. Ugh. And then there was my hospital visit on Tuesday and Wednesday. It was pretty awful. That thing I had to get down my nose hurt so goddamn much in my throat all the time, but survived it. And survived the check up on Wednesday too. But it was pretty horrible. Aw. Hate these Morbus Crohn checks. And then I learned that my entire colon has inflammations. And now I'm taking prednisolone for the next three weeks, then hopefully going to start a different medicine, and hoping it will make me better. But ahh, I'm worried about the pills I have to take. So, so many side effects. The new medicine will have that too. And I just, I don't want to get sicker. I really don't. But I need my medicine, badly. Ugh. My body sucks at the moment. But hoping it will get better. Also so behind on certain things, as I have zero energy right now. I blogged a bit this week too. I shared my review of The Amber Spyglass. <3 And I shared a launch day post for Fairday Morrow and the Talking Library :) This week I'm waiting on My Plain Jane :D And then I shared my review of The Book of Dust: La Belle Sauvage. <3 Eee. I also got a lot of stunning mail this week. Yesss. I'm SO thrilled with all of it :D Ahh. But ugh, I'm also waiting on two packages that were supposed to arrive early this week, but they did not, just hoping they will get here next week. Hmph. Either way, so excited to get them all. Despite my really crappy health, and slow reading at the moment, my week was pretty good. I'm so thrilled to have re-read His Dark Materials, and have read the new book.

  1. Awww, I'm sorry you've got a new issue (in terms of your colon). That sounds terrible. :/ But yay for spa bath???

    So you got Noah Shaw! YAY! I'm reading it next week... I keep pushing it off. I'm sure it will be fine but I really want to reread the others first.

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

    Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!

  2. I'm so sorry to hear about your health issues, Carina! I'm happy you're a blogger and a reader so at least you take your mind off your immediate problems here and there. Some day I hope we all will be able to brush off health problems for good! :)

    Bummer on getting denied Noah Shaw! I quit that series after the first book. It wasn't for me.

    I hope you enjoy All the Crooked Saints. :)
