In My Mailbox is a weekly feature hosted by the wonderful The Story Siren where we get to drool with one another over the awesome books that came in the post this week!
Allen & Unwin Awesomeness:
BIGGG thanks to the wonderful, amazing, capslock God, SHIRLEY!! She sent me her copy of Hallowed because I don't own it and she doesn't want it and inside it's pages lives a charming boy named Tucker. I am so excited to read this after seeing so many gushy reviews for it! I love you, Shirley!!! <3 She also sent me an awesome bookmark which I obviously forgot to include in the photo.
Allow me to reenact the moment I got Insurgent: SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!
Allow me to reenact my moment upon finishing Insurgent: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
I'm about to start reading Fury, which is the fourth installment in the Mercy series. Cannot wait to see how it all ends, especially given the cliffhanger Muse left me on. I am SO excited to start Holier Than Thou, because I loved Laura's first novel, Good Oil. I sneaked in the first chapter of this and whoa, yeah, I'm HOOKED. Definitely reading it after Fury. I also peaked at the first few pages of Dead, Actually and it looks awesome! Methinks Brodie is going to like.
What's in your mailbox this week?
PRETTIES! PRETTIES!If you're a regular visitor (hi, I love you!) you might have noticed I've had a mini blog makeover! It really only looks like I've changed the header and background, but you would not believe how difficult I make things for myself and it took freaking forever. I take no credit for the amazing banner art, save for a blog title very lamely tacked on (I suck at Photoshop). Anyway, whatchoo think? Anything that's difficult to read or just plain ugly? (I'm awful at matching colours, so I will not take offence to you pointing your finger in my face and cackling in mockery). Everything looks normal size in Firefox, but stupid IE seems to make it all so biiiiiiiiiiig.
I also updated my About Me page and plan to put up a VERY belated rating system explanation soon. And probably change my blog button so it matches the new header.
I am also RIDICULOUSLY behind on blog commenting, but I promise I'll begin to play catch up tomorrow!
