In My Mailbox (91)/Breaking Down the Monster (3)

Julie:

So, busier week this week. As fun as it was, I kinda hope it doesn't continue. Because just...so many books. Also, Breaking Down the Monster is in the second half of the video. I'm too lazy to list all the books, but yeah. Basically, I read all the books from last month that aren't in this video, plus a couple one or two you've seen reviews for this month.


For Review:
Incarnate by Jodi Meadows
Havoc by Jeff Sampson
Everneath by Brodi Ashton

Won:
Ruling Passion by Alyxandra Harvey

...Gift?:
Iron Knight VIP Pass

What's in your box this week?

For Review:

Battle Fatigue by Mark Kurlansky - not really my kind of book but I'll give it a try. :)

And forgot to add it to the picture but I got  Reckoning by Lili St. Crow - I have I think book 1, 3 and...4? in the series so I'm gonna get the others and try to read it soon.


Bought:

Abandon by Meg Cabot
Mist by Kathryn James 

With The Mist, it was honestly a pure case of cover lust with that one. The picture online and even in that photo doesn't do it justice - it's all shiny and rainbow-ish and one of the prettiest covers ever in person. Here's a better picture (ignore the fact that my nails/fingers are stained with fake blood - I was turning my nephew into a zombie for a halloween party):



Gift:

The Letters of Vincent Van Gogh

To explain that and the other random things - my best friend asked what I wanted for my birthday a while ago and I jokingly said, "A pony! A book!" and...she actually got me a freaking pony (that I get to paint!) and a book (a book I really wanted), because she is awesome. She also works in a herbal shop so she gave me a bunch of teas to try (because I'm addicted to spiced chai) and bought me lip balm in the flavour of cherry chupa chups (my favourite lollipops ever!).

And as for the Breaking Down the Monster part - well, if you saw my reading funk discussion post then you'll know that I've not done much reading this month at all, so reading my book stack was kind of a fail and seeing as I'm doing NaNoWriMo for November, I won't be choosing any books for November; I'm just going to read whatever review books I get/have for November.
Later.
