Owl Post #4

Inspired by The Story Siren's In My Mailbox, Owl Post allows me to excitedly share all the yummy books I get in the mail each week! Owl's are much faster and more reliable than sneaky postmen, and the common way for magical folk to send and receive letters and parcels. Yes. I went to Hogwarts. Be jealous.

I don't have to hate UK bloggers anymore! When copies of Throne of Glass dominated so many UK posts last week, Brodie was hulking out in jealous rage. And because owls are intuitive and knew this - I GOT A COPY IN THE MAIL THIS WEEK!! I am excited, excited, excited to read this! I can't review it until late July, but if I can stop being lazy and write up those few reviews so I have a small stockpile, I'll get to this very soon.

Black Heart Blue was a complete surprise. -  "I didn't order anything from The Book Depository. Who sent this?!" *reads receipt* "FAAAAYYYYEEEE!!!!" *shakes fist* - The sweet, amazing, superhero Fayezer from A Daydreamer's Thoughts sent me this. Because she is crazy nice and I'm going to kill her by squishing her to death in the biggest hug <3 Thank you!! It sounds like such a moving story, I can't wait to read it. You should all check out Faye's incredible review for it here!

What have the owls delivered to you this week?

  5. SQUEEEEEEEEEE! THRONE OF GLASS! So pretty. I can't wait to get my copy <3

  6. YOU GOT THRONE OF GLASS! *in a glass case of emotions right now* I've been dying for this book because they've compared it to Game of Thrones which I'm obsessed with. Hmph. Good job I requested this book early. :)

  7. Some interesting titles. I haven't actually heard of either of them but will definitely need to look them up.

    You can ind my IMM here:

    Have a great week and happy reading :-)

  8. What? What? *blinks*

    Am I seeing this right? THRONE OF GLASS? THRONE OF GLASS?!?!?!
    If I don't get a copy, I'm going to rage all hell. >:D

    God, I am so so envious right now! I'm waiting for my Swagbucks $5 Amazon GC to clear so I can buy the rest of the e-novellas!!! Just, just...I NEED this now. I'm in such a reading slump, just haven't wanted to read. I need something that I'm super excited about, and baby, this is it! I've been pining for this one way too long.

    That is so awesome that a buddy sent you a book! <3 I haven't been active in the book blogging community lately, so I didn't even know that the Throne of Glass ARCs were circulating around, and thus, no stress! But now that I've seen you get one.......ARGH! Must. Have. Now.

    But first, I have to do my 2000 word, 60% weighted assignment. @_@ That, my friend, is why I'm here.

  9. Throne of Glass, yay. I just started reading it and it seems good so far. Hope you enjoy it! Donna xoxo

  10. Woooo! What a GREAT mailbox! :D Enjoy your books this week <333
