Weigh in Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Lauren at Epilogue, and is a interactive, discussion meme.
Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
The Story Siren‘s In My Mailbox meme: for book bloggers to share their book haul from the week, or month…or whatever. I was extremely busy last week, so I didn’t do an IMM. Actualy, I also busy this week…BUT I GOT SO MANY GOODIES, I couldn’t resist not
showing them off sharing, including a brand new Kindle Touch I won from Jordan K. Rose‘s blog tour for her book Perpetual Light. (It was the grand prize and came with a copy of her book!) Seriously, sometimes I think I must’ve been a martyr in my previous life to be blessed with such luck… Finally my e-reader free days are over! But the feel of a physical book, the smell of a new book…will always be dear to me. Even if it’s heavier.
I just synced the Chinese edition of the The Hunger Games trilogy on the Kindle for my mom to read, since I can’t find a physical copy…online or off. She wanted to read the books after watching the movie, but I only have the English editions.
AND…another extra-exciting thing I received was Michael Olson’s Strange Flesh, a book I’ve been DYING to read since two months ago when I saw it on Goodreads. Simon & Schuster sent me the wrong book last week, and I admit I was disappointed: imagine ripping off a wrapping paper expecting the book you’ve been anticipating for weeks…only to get something else (granted, it was a free book, so I guess it’s a bonus?) I couldn’t help starting it even though I had exams and school projects to worry about. So far, I am only three/four chapters in, and it’s SOOOO GOOODDD. Now if only I can put down my Kindle long enough to continue.
ANDDDD…A gigantic box of desert goodies from Debbie’s. (I know it’s not book related, but I couldn’t resist) At first I thought it was board games, but it was 2 boxes of cakes, 1 box of brownies, and 2 bags of muffins. A wonderful surprise…and those blueberry muffins were delectable!
And now onto all the other goodies I received these past two weeks…
The Story Siren‘s In My Mailbox meme: for book bloggers to share their book haul from the week, or month…or whatever. I was going to only post an IMM once a month, but this week’s haul was especially big. I learned from last time that the longer I wait, the more the pile grows, and the lazier I get to list them all out.
What did you get in your mailbox this week? Leave a comment, I would love to be nosy!

This is what I wish my friends (who watched the movie with me) would do, but they just kept asking me if Peeta dies.
And also my parents (I drove them to the theater to watch the movie yesterday), who kept thinking it was just a teen romance flick. But it’s so much mooooreeeee…*cries in a hole*
Your soul-less 9gagger of a webmistress,
This is my first time participating in The Story Siren‘s In My Mailbox meme, so I hope I do this right. I didn’t really plan to do this, but I’ve received so many wonderful books these past two weeks that I just had to make this post. There’s just so many goodies that I would love to share, but haven’t yet found the time to read and review. This stuff is hard, I think I will only do this once a month.
