In My Mailbox Week 12

In My Mailbox is weekly meme hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren.  The idea is to share books you've acquired during the week, whether you've won them, bought them, picked them up at the library, received them for review, whatever.  It's a great way to bring attention to books and authors and share the love!

I didn't participate in the usual Friday posts this week because I had too much else going on, so I'm posting my weekly recap here!

Memes:

At the end, I said I thought I was forgetting something, and I remembered what it was lol...a few things actually. I tried to do the video as quickly as possible because last week I had so many issues, and I couldn't upload the first video I made because it was too long, so I tried to keep this one shorter. Anyway, I wanted to mention that this weekend, I'm participating in my first ever read-a-thon - the Wonderfully Wicked Read-a-Thon. I'm having a great time, especially chatting with people on Twitter. The 2 books I've been reading are Farsighted by Emlyn Chand and Some Girls Bite by Chloe Neill. The other thing I wanted to mention was what to expect this week on the blog: I'm participating in Emlyn Chand's blog tour for Farsighted, so my review will be up Monday, and I'll have an excerpt of the book on Tuesday. As for the rest of the week...I'm not 100% sure what I'll be doing other than my regular memes, and a review for Some Girls Bite.

Books mentioned in the video:

Special thank you to Kathy from I Write, I Read, I Review for sending me Lola and the Boy Next Door!
I also meant to mention in the video that Kathy lives about half an hour from me. She's the closest blogger I've found so far, which is pretty cool! :-)
Also, I was featured in Kathy's Saturday Spotlight yesterday! Check out my interview with Kathy here: Saturday Spotlight #3: Ramblings of a Daydreamer

What did you get in your mailbox this week?

  9. I actually wasn't sure if I was gonna make a video until I was making it but I wish I hadn't, I was still and tiredby that point that I just kept messing it up and forgot everything lol but it's nice to know I'd have been missed! :)
    Hmmm I suppose I can forgive you for forgetting to mention my shelves... This time :p

    I don't read anthologies, I don't really like short stories, there isn't enough room for a build up but I hope you enjoy it :)
