In My Mailbox (28) : The EPIC week

Can I just say how amazing this week is? After I got a package scare at the P.O. (they informed me I had 15 parcels when I only have 6, how crazy is that?) I got some ridiculously awesome books! I haven't gotten this much haul in a week, ever! More than a dozen books! Now I'm sure I'm gonna be busy for the next few weeks! Oh, and I did get 15 books all in all. :)

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren and inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie. This meme allows bloggers to showcase the books they've received, bought or borrowed from the library.

Warning: Please turn up your speaker volume if you want to hear what I'm saying. I tried increasing the volume, but I deleted the source video file I was editing so... sorry!

I got a bound manuscript for TGITSC, which is actually a big surprise. The package was so heavy and really big too! (Don't even ask how much the shipping costs!) I feel like book blogging became way more real when I got the manuscript. My inner self was going "Hey! I'm getting manuscripts now!" As you all know, the cover is just breath taking, and if I can get an ARC of this, it'll be really nice. In the meantime, I need to have my copy bound. I don't think I can bring this around with me to read like this. :)

The copies of Evermore and Bluemoon were surprise copies. I didn't know they were sending it to me, so I was puzzled when I opened the package. I was only expecting two, and there were four. Now I need to start reading The Immortals series!

  2. Wow! That's a lot of great books! I can't wait to read your reviews on them. Happy Reading!

  3. You aren't kidding about this being an epic week! I'm so jealous of Forgotten. I can understand what you mean about book blogging feeling real after getting a manuscript. Happy reading!

    My Mailbox has some super cool Dark Days of Supernatural stuff in it!

  4. My goodness, you got a lot of great books and I really loved that one cover so much! I read the Immortal series and I liked it less and less as the books went on, but I really liked the first one! Anyway, I hope you're doing well and I'll ttyl.

  5. LOL "it was pretty good, even though I hated Corrine so much I wanted to kill her" - made me laugh and now I'm intrigued by it! :D

    Yay, Burn Bright! I loved that! I can't wait to hear what you think of it. You got some awesome books this week, looking forward to reading all your reviews. And damn... that's a big manuscript! Exciting!

  6. Aww, I couldn't hear it much but I imagined what you were saying. :) Glad you got Ten Miles and Burn Bright! You've been really looking forward to those. And oh my gosh..the manuscript is super thick! :) Now, all you have to do is read them all and review them! Update your excel!

  7. That's a lot Kai! Enjoy them all and can't wait to read what you though about them! :]

    @Kwesi: I did tell people to turn up the speaker's volume so you guys can hear me... ;)

  10. Awesome books this week! Really looking forward to forgotten and The Girl in the Steel Corset.
    Happy reading.

  11. I've tried, as in, maximizing the volume of my speaker. Haha. Well, next time or maybe this Summer or this coming Saturday I can post a video of myself like yours. Haha.
