In My Mailbox #24

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren. It’s where all participants post what new books they received in the mail, from the library, or contests they won, etc. Click the link for more info and to join in on the fun!

Another week, another attempt at vlogging! I tried using my Flip to record this, but it bothered me since I couldn’t see myself. The Mac camera, it is! I also did a nice new button (see above) for my IMM posts — it’s the favourite one that I made last week!

  1. Congrats on the great wins and swag 🙂 I can’t belive The Fault in Our Stars is taking so long to get to you.. that kind of sucks.. Hope you get it soon, it’s pretty good!

    Happy reading!

  2. Congrats to your wins! I recently read Hana, it was a quick read and made me remember what a great writer Lauren Oliver is. I hope you enjoy your books x

  3. Kristilyn! I am an intern with Hachette Canada and was helping with the Twitter contest you won last week. As a blogger myself, I can’t believe I have never seen your blog before — it’s fabulous! And this vlog is so great. I love seeing bloggers talk on camera because you can see it in their eyes and hear it in their voice just how much they adore the written word!

    Also, I hope your copy of THE FAULT IN OUR STARS comes in very soon! It is one of my absolute favourite books and I wrote the most gushing review of it on my own blog. I can whole-heartedly guarentee that you will ADORE it! Your loot this week sounds fantastic — I hope you enjoy them all =).
