Me on In My Mailbox (57)

In My Mailbox is a bunch of weekly fun hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. :)

January's almost over. It feels so weird. Stupid time, moving both slowly and quickly and messing with people's heads. ;)

You know how This Is Not a Test was on NetGalley and everyone requested it and then they pulled it? Well, I deleted it from my list on NetGalley... and then people started saying they were approved. And then I started kicking myself. *head-desk* Oh, well.

I had a weird brain crack moment on Wednesday morning. It was both awesome and it sucked so much.

I think I might start e-mailing more next week for the blog event. If anyone has any suggestions of Canadian authors you'd like to see featured, suggest away. It'll, hopefully, be a mix of reviews and posts with authors. Still not sure about a giveaway. As for dates, which do you like more: April 29 to May 12, or May 1 to 14?? I'd really like to finalize the dates before contacting more people. :)

Received to review:
The Last Princess by Galaxy Craze (from Hachette Book Group Canada) (does anyone know if this counts for the debut author challenge??)
Starters by Lissa Price (from Random House, through NetGalley)

Borrowed from the library:
Fruits Basket Volumes 1-4 & 6 (I blame 2012 debut author Kathleen Peacock. Last week I was looking through the anime shows on Netflix, posed a question on Twitter, and Kathleen jumped in with, "Watch Fruits Basket!" So I watched it. And it broke my brain. And raced to the library on Monday to borrow the manga. They didn't have volume 5 on the shelf, and no library has a copy of volume 7. I honestly went to 2 different libraries. My sister said she'd read it before, but online. Not sure if I'll cave & read the rest online, but we'll see.)

To read & review: A Touch Morbid, Partials, Starters, Goddess Interrupted, Gone, Gone, Gone, The Last Princess, and Never Enough. :)


  1. Awww, well hopefully you get This Is Not A Test some way. I am so excited that you are doing the Canadian event, and I can't wait to see what you line up!

  2. I'm sorry to hear about the netgalley incident with This is Not a Test. I haven't signed up for netgalley yet, I keep thinking about it, but haven't done it yet. You still got some great books this week though. I've seen Starters popping up all over the place. It sounds interesting. Hope you enjoy them all!
