In My Mailbox Vlog - (4/17/11)

In My Mailbox is a meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. It is a list of any of the books you may have received in the past week from bookstores, libraries, authors/publishers, trades, etc.

This video was over 12 minutes long, but I cut out my Harry Potter ramblings, so you get my condensed, 'I got HP7' version; instead of how I liked the movie much more during the DVD viewing and how I've gone to the midnight shows for all of the movies (starting with the 3rd one) and plan on seeing the final one at the midnight show - where I'll be depressed, but excited and not know how to convey both those emotions without being a wreck. My ramblings about my book buying ban and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter also did not make the cut, but the latter will get some attention in due time.

Safari Poet said...

I really have to get my act together and read the Mortal Instruments.

Happy reading :-)

Jess - I'm not sure if The Naughty List is exactly my kind of book, but I'm willing to give the series a shot. I've seen some great reviews for it.

Safari Poet - You've never read TMI? Then check out my contest and you could win the entire series, signed. The link is up above :)

That is pretty neat that Suzanne marked up Hannah's book. You got some amazing books this week. Then I Met My Sister sounds so good, so does Through Her Eyes. Happy Reading!

Suzanne is awesome, she's really funny! And The Naughty List books are good, but I wasn't really wowed by them, they aren't really my style, but A Need So Beautiful (out in June) was AMAZING! So even if you don't love The Naughty List books you have to read A Need So Beautiful!
Invincible Summer was very different... I actually didn't really like it at all in the beginning. But I kept reading and the story and characters really grew on me. I finally decided I did like it and it really stuck with me after I'd finished. I hope you like it!

You are freaking adorable. I enjoy watching your vlogs. Seriously! ;)

And, I too, am frustrated with B&B because they mis-sent my copy of COFA and I didn't get it until like a week and a half after it had shipped on the day of release. Ugh! But, yes...I understand your frustration.

And Suzanne seems really and truly amazing. I'm dying to read her books and the Hannah Mosowitz book as well. :)

soulunsung - You make me smile :)And B&N needs to get their act together because CoFA is all kinds of important that they cannot be screwing up.

Kaitlyn - Haha, if I hadn't cut that the video would have been so much longer! It was basically me rambling on about how I liked the movie much more this time around - as opposed to the three times I saw it in the theater - and how the (almost) final scene made me cry this time. I was upset that it didn't make me cry originally because I bawled my eyes out when I read the book.

I'm going to the HP theme park very soon, so I think I'll bring my camera and post some vlogs about it. That is, if my fangirl squeeing doesn't eclipse everything else or shatter some eardrums :)

Great vlog and you've had some fab books. I love all the little notes in Invincible Summer.

Sandy said...

The Naughty List is a cutesy read. The strawberry smoothie comment is a good thing, trust me ;) And Suzanne's comments in Hannah's arc are so sweet!

I've only read the first book in TMI series...I should probably catch up on that. :S Anyways, I hope you enjoy all your bookish goodies!

Sandy said...

OH DUDE! I didn't realize you had my button on your blogroll until now! Thank you so much!!! :D

And I can't help but notice that your youtube name has "pinguinos" in it. That's awesome ;)

Nikki (Wicked Awesome Books) said...

Sandy - I LOVE penguins! And cats, but that's beside the point. I remember when I first saw your blog because I thought, 'that is genius!' And yes, my youtube name is I love penguins in Spanish :)

Sandy said...

Aww, shucks. *blushes* x)

Yeah! I noticed the spanish since I speak the language ;D But that's cool. I'm a fan of penguins (if that isn't obvious already) but I can't say I like cats all that much. :S I'm more of a dog person xD
