Me on In My Mailbox (52)

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

It's Christmas. Almost. :) All the Christmas and birthday present fun will go up in next week's IMM post. I figure there aren't going to be a lot of people around tomorrow, or even today, but I'm still doing this now and then again next weekend. :)

I saw the Tintin movie during the week and it was awesome. It reminded me of the cartoon I watched when I was little, so much of the movie was familiar to me (I saw the cartoon show when I was younger in English, but I've heard stories or people watching it in its original French when they were in school). I hope they do more, it was so good. :) But, like most movies, showing it in 3D was pointless.

I used to be worried that, for some reason, they were holding my mail back, because nothing ever came addressed to me. Then I got some mail and I felt better. But I think there's some mail out there for me that's lost or sent back or was never sent at all. And it was review copies, too. *sigh* I'll e-mail and ask about it in January, no one's going to be in their office next week.

Last chance to e-mail me about your pick for this year's underrated YA book of 2011. E-mail me soon, the post goes up next Thursday.

These are the few books I got during the week. Next week's post, hopefully, will be bigger. :)

Received to review:
The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith (from Hachette Book Group Canada) (I want to hug the girl I e-mail at Hachette in Toronto, even though she probably had nothing to do with this being sent out early. And it's a finished copy.)

Silly Kingdom by Katie & Stephen Shanahan (Back in the summer, I helped fund a comic through IndieGoGo. They wanted to create a comic to sell to people at ComicCon and other conventions as opposed to just having pieces in big anthologies (Flight Volume 7 and Volume 8) and art prints. It was because I love their fun family (it's sort of about them and their sister) webcomic Shrub Monkeys (they did the best Anne of Green Gables comic I've ever come across) and I'm all for fun, creative Canadian people getting out there and sharing their art and writing with other people. When I found out about this, I knew I wanted in, so I donated to the cause. And now I have a fun comic with a doodle in the front.)

Borrowed from the library:
The Death Cure by James Dashner (e-book) (It's weird, I'll have read this whole series in library e-book form.)

To read & review: The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight, Incarnate, Born Wicked, Someone Else's Life, The Fine Art of Truth or Dare, A Touch Morbid, Immortal City, Gone, Gone, Gone, and Never Enough. :)


  1. I just finished The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight last night actually. Can't wait to see what you think.

    I am skipping IMM this week because, like you, I doubt very many people will be around.

    Merry Christmas!

  2. Really nice haul. Come check out my stash as well if you get a chance.
