Me on In My Mailbox (59)

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

Watched some more anime this week. It's easy to pick up some words and phrases, since they're said in almost every episode or whatever I've watched. Good morning. Thank you. Sorry. I love you. The fact that it's all subtitled also helps a little. ;) Some of the one I've found have been weird, like it seems normal then something odd happens and it totally changes how I thought it was going to go.

Yesterday was the Marissa Meyer signing, & the day before was a live-chat... and a lunch. Oh, lunches with authors that include bloggers, how I wish there were more of you. :) I bought a copy of Cinder at the signing, but it's for Audrey. I said I'd get it for her, she said she'd pay me back, & she'll get it soon, next time she's in BC. :)

I have to remember to do another round of contacting people for the blog event in May. I should really do it now, since there's a fair amount of time before the actual event.
Cinder by Marissa Meyer (from Raincoast Books) (Everyone at the lunch on Friday was given a copy, which was so nice of Raincoast because I wasn't expecting it, and I got it signed as well. I read the e-galley a couple months ago, but I'm re-reading it right now.)

Borrowed (from Caitlin):
Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver
Illuminate by Aimee Agresti
Black Heart by Holly Black
Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi

Received to review:
The Year of the Beasts by Cecil Castellucci & Nate Powell (from Macmillan through NetGalley) (I'm rather excited about this one, it's a mix of prose and comics.)
Girl Meets Boy: Because There Are Two Sides to Every Story edited by Kelly Milner Halls (from Raincoast Books) (This has to be the cutest ARC I've ever received. :))
Among Others by Jo Walton (from Raincoast Books)
Borrowed from the library:
End of Days by Max Turner (I read his first book Night Runner a while ago and have been slowly searching for this one. A different tweak on vampires, plus Canadian. Hmmm, maybe I should review it for the blog event.)
Saving Francesca by Melina Marchetta
On the Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
Enclave by Ann Aguirre
Undercurrent by Tricia Rayburn (sort of a re-borrow, I borrowed an e-book version but couldn't get into it. It was a non-e-book phase.)
Always a Witch by Carolyn MacCullough
Fruits Basket Volume 5, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 & 12 (supposedly, the library has a copy of each of the 23 volumes, we'll see about that. ;))

To read & review: Pandemonium, Illuminate, Black Heart, Girl Meets Boy, Among Others, Starters, Gone, Gone, Gone, The Last Princess, The Year of the Beasts, and Never Enough. :) Again, tell me if there's anything else you'd like to see me review.


  1. Ahhhh! I want to read Black Heart! I can't wait to see what happens.

    I have heard amazing things about On the Jellicoe Road. Amazing things.

    Awww, will you be having a recap of the lunch and signing? I would love to hear all about it (wish I could have gone!)

    Great mailbox this week!


    also, yay signed books! :D I just read the recap of the event and it sounded amazing! maybe I SHOULD move to Vancouver... ;)

    happy reading, Lindsay!
