In My Mailbox (18)

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren.

A vlog recorded after I clocked some people at the grocery store. Just kidding! :) Also, I tried to change the initial still shot that YouTube picked out, but each of them were equally horrific. Or maybe I just don't know how to make normal faces.

Melanie @ Reclusive Bibliophile and HERE is her review for Crash Into Me.

Can't wait to see what everyone else got in their mailbox this week <3


  1. Looks like you found some great books at Half-Price. I looked for the Georgia Nicolson books today when I was there, but they only had 3,4 & 7. Your cats are so cute! I'm dying to get a kitten but I'm so busy with school and I'm hopefully getting a job soon. Have a good weekend!

  2. I have a few things to say:

    1. OMG KITTIES!!!! <3 them
    2. Why can't you remember my every word? You're supposed to memorize my reviews and recite them like bible verses. Jeez, what is wrong with you? I don't know if we can be friends anymore.
    4. I'm jealous of all those fabulously cheap books.
    5. This is your first time reading Harry Potter, right? That's super exciting. I kind of want to reread Harry Potter, or listen to the audiobooks. If only they were like $300.
    6. I have also been collecting the Georgia Nicholson series. I haven't actually read any of them yet, but I own a whole bunch.
    7. I think that is all.

    I have to do my IMM tomorrow because I was too scared to walk to the mailbox today since my driveway was like a sheet of ice. Hoping it will be less terrifying in the morning. Otherwise I'll just post what I have for now :)

  3. This was fabulous Jen! I'm totally rocking the grocery store hair right now too ;-) hehe I'm envious of your Harry Potter-ness. I hate yet to read that series.

  4. Omg, you are TOO hilarious. I'm cracking up at "Stephanie Anderson."

    Love the kitties!!!

    I don't know if you've done one already, but I'd love to see a bookshelf tour!

  5. Kitties!!! Your cats are so adorable! <3
    I'm the same way about hardcovers; I can't read em with the book jacket on! Gotta disrobe them. :)

    Sounds like you scored some sweet deals! Hope you enjoy reading them! :)

  6. I love the cats! They're so darling!

    Hooray for Harry Potter and Georgia Nicholson! I love both of those series. Enjoy all of your new books!

  7. Loved your vlog! Your cats are so cute! I am so jealous that you got Entangled. I can't wait to read that one. I also hope you get your hands on Timeless soon--sorry that it didn't come sooner. I just read it and LOVED it. Enjoy all your books!

  8. Yay for middle grade and Harry Potter too.

  9. LOL. Great mailbox vlog! You got some great deals from Half Price Books. I don't think we have one around here. Hope you enjoy your books!

  10. Ahhhh, your kitties are sooo cute! :)

    I love the awesome deals you got this week. That's my favorite!

    I really want to read the Louise Rennison series at some point. I've heard good things about it!

  11. Silver Borne is awesome... well, the whole series is. Team Adam!!!

    Entangled is one Im looking forward to reading!!!

    Enjoy your reads and check out my IMM. It's small this week but that's cool!!

  12. Yay for Half Priced Books!
    I've been pretty curious about Louise Rennison's books so I can't wait to see what you think of them.
    Hope you enjoy all your books!

  13. I luuuurve your vlogs. And I want those snogging books. The end.

  14. Entangled is really really good! And the Georgia Nicholson series is so funny¬ Happy reading :D

  15. I'm hoping one of these days a Half Priced Books comes my way. And have you seen Angus, Thongs, and Full Frontal Snogging the movie? It's hilarious and I believe nunga, nungas are boobs...if I remember right, lol.

  16. Your cats are adorable! :)

    You made me laugh so much with the Stephanie Anderson thing too. I so hate it when people write in their books.

    I tried to do a VLOG on Friday to post this weekend, but there was no sound.... I have no idea why... so I won't be posting it - it took me like ten takes to do too. I am so sad about it. LOL

    Happy Reading!

  17. Great vlog! And you can never go wrong with buying Harry Potter!! :) Great IMM this week. Enjoy!

    My Post


  19. KITTEHS!!! (yes, I spelled it right this time)

    I love me some grocery hair...I had some myself yesterday but it was just too horrific to show the Internet universe. Your's looks cute!

    I cannot tell you how excited I am that you are reading HP. It.Is.Epic.

  20. Crash Into Me is so great! I really liked it. Entangled looks wonderful - I adore the cover!

  21. Darling, I cannot even begin to tell you how every freakin' word out of your mouth = comedic gold to me. Well, maybe I can. Cause I sort of just began to tell you. BUT THE POINT IS I COULD GO ON.

  22. I take the dust jacket off my hardcovers when reading them too. It gets in the way and I don't want to ruin it. I also need to have uniformity with my series (either all paperbacks or all hardcovers). Uniformity rocks!

    I need to check out Half price Books. I hadn't heard of that place until now. Crash Into Me for a buck?!! Can't beat that!

  23. Kittehs in the background! YAYYY!




    I may be on a ton of caffeine right now. Yay.

    Moar vlogs plz.
