in my mailbox (18): irene edition

All is thankfully safe and well here, although it's still raining and windy. With everyone being in one piece, including the cats and no trees on the house, well, I consider it a massive achievement. I've amassed quite a few books again and so I threw together a vlog, although please pardon my appearance. I haven't slept for more than a few hours in a day or so and I look like a creature from Ann Aguire's Enclave. (Yeah, I'm using book references.)

Books mentioned:
Blood Red Road, Moira Young
Wither, Lauren DeStefano
Unwind, Neal Shusterman
Across the Universe, Beth Revis
Anna and the French Kiss, Stephanie Perkins
The Magician King, Lev Grossman
Looking for Alaska, John Green
Bloodlines, Richelle Mead
This Dark Endeavour, Kenneth Oppel
A Need So Beautiful, Suzanne Young
Full Tilt, Neal Shusterman
Ballad, Maggie Stiefvater

I'll catch up with your mailboxes after Tangled. And a nap! Stay safe, everyone.

0o0o You've got some awesome lovelies that I enjoyed quite a bit. I hope you enjoy them as well. Be sure to tell me what you think of A Need So Beautiful, I'm really interested in checking that out in the near future.

Oooh, I love some of the books you got! And I got my hands on A Need So Beautiful this week too. I can't wait to see how it is.

Check out my IMM over here (though I'm way too shy to do a vlog ;) )!

Bwahaha, yes, Tangled is the perfect way to pass the evening!

Looks like a great list. We especially want to check out Wither. Can't wait to read your reviews!

Great pile of books this week! Unwind was absolutely amazing. But, I was so unnerved by it that I just HAD to get it off my shelf. I know, I know, what the heck?! Just another weird bookish thing.
Here is my IMM:
Happy Reading :D
Stay dry

I am so jealous of all your books! The only one I have out of those is Ballad and I don't have Lament either!

This week is my birthday so I've told the husband he needs to take me to Borders. ;)

Anna and The French Kiss and Wither are amazing! I cant watch the video (no sound) but I'm glad the worst of the hurricane by-passed you! Enjoy your books!
