In My Mailbox: March

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren. Stop by and check it out, and share your own finds!

I do mine a little differently -- no shocker there. I know I won't post about an IMM every week (and it's so much more impressive when I post them all together ;p) so I make one grand IMM post at the end of the month, debuting on the last Sunday.


In March, I decided to treat myself, since it was my birth month, after all. (Who am I kidding? I treat myself every month, and I would have bought these regardless...)
I had intended to do an IMM for you. Infact, I recorded one, and I was quite funny and charismatic (;p) -- but I got so many books this week that the thing was too damn long to upload!  So you got this instead; plus side?  There's a rattie appearance from Mama Warbucks herself!  It comes across super dark in the beginning for some reason -- not in the actual video, only the uploaded version.  So thanks for that, Blogger.  But it does get better(ish).  The end is priceless; worst face to freeze on, ever.

  1. Impressive list!! I would happily punch you in the face for your copy of Changeless (and Soulless for that matter because I don't own it either). I think you'll like Before I Fall, its pretty good. Knife of Never Letting go!! You have me so curious about that series, I'll probably have to start it in the next week or two.

  4. Fantastic haul there!

    I just made my husband watch the part where you pan over the stack so that my piles o' books look more innocuous. It didn't really work. "That just shows me that there are people as crazy as you out there." At least I have good company. ;-)

  7. OH MY GOODNESS! So many. Just watching that video makes me want to go and buy a billion books.

    I am also super jealous that you're reading Inside/Out right now.

    Also, awesome rat attack.

  10. Great video! Clever way to show the books..."here, there's one more. And another, and another." I loved how the second book fell right into the first book nicely without damaging any of the papers (I hope.) THIS IS ALL has been sitting like a pretty brick on one of my shelves for like over two years! And I've been meaning to read Physick Book of Deliverance since it came out last year. And my mom has continued to nag me about THE HELP again. What a fantastic list! :)
