In My Mailbox- Week of Feb. 23

Hey everyone! Here's the vlog for this week:

And I'll have two more Picture posts coming up this week, wherein I'll show off my bookshelves and book boxes and book piles! :) And these pics will also be interspersed (sp?) with some other pics of my cats, the packages pic I talk about in the vlog, and a picture of the stuffed animal that Davin got me.

Also, here's a few links of things over at my Myspace blog, posted in the last week:

Review of In Too Deep by Jennifer Banash plus an interview and contest (which ends Monday evening!) here.
Reviews of Project Sweet Life by Brent Hartinger and Jumped by Rita Williams-Garcia plus an interview with Brent here.
Review of Geek Charming by Robin Palmer plus an interview with Robin here.


  1. Love You Hate You Miss You!!! Can't wait to read this!

    Gay Manga?! Sorry, but I've the need to correct you. It's called 'Shounen Ai' or 'Yaoi' or both. I'm not into this genre but I'm a Manga Fanatic so...yeah...I've got a solid Manga knowledge.

  2. I want to read the Chalet Girls ny libary doesn't have it but they have the other two books.

    You had another great week.

  3. Hehe. On Friday I was like Oooooh I wish I had a copy of Forest of Hands and Teeth! My mom said I didn't get anything in the mail.. Got home, ate dinner went upstairs and my dad was like oh don't you want your package? And it was totally Forest of Hands and Teeth, total mind reading!

    Yeah I only got Alligator Bayou but I'm still not sure what it's about...

  4. Another great week, I also really love the cover of Breathing...but for different reasons.

  5. Why is everyone but me getting Love You Hate You Miss You?! :(

  6. Letter Garden- I know that, but I like calling it my gay manga, lol. And it's more Shounen Ai than Yaoi. I'm a manga/anime fanatic too. Oh hey, maybe I'll take a pic of my box o' manga to post this week!

    Megan- Ugh, I hate it when that happens! When they have like random books in the series rather than all of them.

    Alea- I'm glad I'm not alone. Also, you need to ask me about Forest on a mailing day. I think it was sent out earlier this week but I haven't gotten it yet. :(

    I didn't even look to see what either one was about. I've never heard of them and they don't look interesting just from the cover, so off to the library they go!

    Erika Lynn- Well, I like it for other reasons too, but those are the main ones, lol.

    Khy- I dunno, but if you don't get it, I can throw it in the package I'll eventually get around to sending to you, lol. :P

  7. Aah..ok. Good to know, that you're not one of these ignorant people. YAY, please do! I'll show you my Manga mountain.

  8. nice vlog and cute cat. hilarious story about the fedex guy too!

    can't wait to read love you hate you miss you!!

  9. i like the idea of vlogs, they seem easier than typing and i'm getting lazy lately;)
    great post!

  10. Ohhh You had a good week and as usual..I adore your VLOG's. They are so very entertaining and fun. I like seeing how much you enjoy and love your books.

    Breathing looks amazing and I cannot wait to see what you think about it.

    BTW love love love the kitty.

  11. I am glad the swap with Karin didn't work because now I'm getting a copy. yay!

  12. Letter Garden- I'll be sure to take a photo of it once I clear some stuff off of it, lol. And I'm a true manga fan- no ignorance regarding that, lol.

    Marie Hansen- Thanks for the compliment! I've got some AMAZING cat pics and a cat video to show this week along with all my bookcases/book boxes, hehe.

    Amy- That's exactly why I do them. I hated having to do all the coding when I first started doing In My Mailbox. This just makes it so much easier; plus, it's easier to tell stories this way.

    Ravenous Reader- Thanks so much! I'm so excited to read Breathing- Cheryl's gonna be one of two Fresh New Voices of YA for April! And like I said above, more cat pics and video to come!

    sharonanne- That's great! That makes me happy that someone else got to get it. :)

  13. I loved The Forest and Breathing so much! Great week, Boothy.

    I only wish LYHYMY would show up in my P.O. box!

  14. Whenever I try to watch the video it says that it has been removed. :(

  15. Now it works! I think that I'm going to donate those two Random House books as well. I don't think I'll ever read them. I can't wait to see the pics of your books! :)

  16. Hahahaha - good luck with hunting down the cute guy on the cover!!!!! Great vlog!
