Me on In My Mailbox (20)

In My Mailbox is hosted every week by Kristi over at The Story Siren. :)

Monday is the Cassie Clare & Holly Black signing at the Metrotown Chapters at 7pm. I'll be there around 5pm. Even though I got the okay from my orthopedic surgeon to start walking on my surgically-repaired ankle (FINALLY!!), I can't put all my weight on it. It really hurts. I tried going up a step. Whoa. So much ow. I head off to physiotherapy on Wednesday to learn what to do to walk on it again. And it'll be my first time driving since I broke it. Kinda scared. I wonder if my sister is willing to come with me.

Received from the author/publisher:
The Girl in the Steel Corset by Kady Cross

Okay, now, I tried requesting this on NetGalley twice and HarlequinTeen said no, which I found confusing. They said yes when I requested The Goddess Test. I mentioned this on Twitter, and Kady Cross herself replied and asked if I had a blog. I said yes. She said I should e-mail her with my address and she'd get her editor's assistant to mail me a copy. This was awesome news. I figured it would be an ARC or finished copy closer to the release date, not a giant inch thick manuscript copy.


I still might buy an actual copy of the book when it comes out at the end of May. :)


  1. WIN. That is all.
    Also, I'm sorry to hear about your ankle. :/

  2. Good luck with the foot, you are determined.I think I would be too for Holly & Cassie :)

    What a cool story on the manuscript. Talk about going out of their way, love it!

    Have fun tonight!!!

  3. I love it when they send manuscript copies! It makes me feel important! LOL

  4. Awesome book. I've had a request from HarlequinTeen rejected from NetGalley before and I think they did because I already had a couple of titles to read from other publishers. Once I read them all I requested the book again and got accepted. Hope you enjoy reading your book.

  5. Hope your ankle feels better and congrats on getting the book!

  6. I really want to read that book.

    Sorry about your ankle I broke last summer just before i went on holiday wasn't fun and so I really feel your pain,
