In My Mailbox Vlog [20]

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted over at the lovely blog The Story Siren. The point is to blog about books that you have somehow procured during the week!

I haven't done an IMM in FOREVER. Mostly its because I was in California all summer. Now that I am back I was able to film a vlog and go through all my new books! Unfortunately this vlog is super duper long. I blame it on the fact that I had like a bajillion books to go through..... So if you want to see me embarrass myself, talk about how a book cover reminds me of mormons, and watch as I do an impression of my mother (a poor one at that) and talk about her hilarious obsession with Josh Hutcherson/Peeta Mellark then view on! Otherwise, just scroll to the bottom for the list of bookish goodness. Though I would HIGHLY recommend that you at least skip ahead to around 15:30 when I start talking about the whole mom/Josh Hutcherson thing. Its hilarious. XD

    Our IMM

  3. Amazing books!

    I had hope that one of my Borders would stay open too because two of them closed before the last one did. :( Boo!!

    I want to buy Delirium's special edition cover one. I have the regular one and right now at Borders, they're the old cover. :(

    Happy reading!

  4. Wow, that is a massively awesome book week you just had!!

  5. Blood Red Road was pretty epic. I'm sure you'll love it. Delirium is on my wishlist. Enjoy, Julia :)!

  6. Goodness, your mailbox is really huge but it makes sense if it's two months worth of stuff. You won a bunch of stuff too. I'm ashamed to say since I have a copy and it's in my tbr pile but thanks for showing Forgotten without the cover flap. You're right, it looks awesome! Happy reading!

  7. Wow, huge haul! So many good books---Forgotten and Wither were both amazing, and I loved Clarity, too. Hope you enjoy all of these!

  8. I absolutely loved Looking for Alaska, so I hope you enjoy it too! And what a huge amount of books you got - I'm jealous. :)

  9. Okay, your mom has to do a video review of THG movie when it releases. That'll be hilarious!
    I'm drooling for that poster!

  10. Nice set of books this week. I really want to read Wither
    Happy reading,
