In My Mailbox 4/8/12 First Vlog ever!!

In My Mailbox is a weekly event hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren to show what bookish things you have gotten in the past week, or month, or however frequently you would like to do it.

Hi everyone and  Happy Easter!! So this week I tried to do a vlog. It came out okay I guess, but I am a little bit awkward. Maybe once I do a few it won't be so bad.






For Review


Books and swag I won or received

Books I bought
 That's my mailbox this week. Thank you to Autumn, Lena, Susan, NetGalley, Tanglewood, and Lerner Publishing!! Tell me what you thought of my first Vlog. Is it as awful I think it is? I would love to see what you got. Leave me a link. :)

    1. Thank you. I was really nervous to do it, but apparently it's not as bad as I think. (either that or you are all lying to make me feel better lol) I am really looking forward to Ashen Winter.

  4. Awesome!! I love the video! I think you did great!! Love the train too, ha! I have not done an IMM vlog in a long time but I used to have jets in the background because we live across from an Ai Force Base! Great Books too! I am so curious about the Curse Workers series. I have heard good things so I need to read them!

    1. Lol Gotta love background noise right?! The train wouldn't be so bad, but the railroad crossing is right down the street. Some of the trains are complete asses with blaring the horn continuously. It's most annoying at like 2am. You really should read The Curse Workers series, it's so good.

  5. YAY FOR VLOGGING! <3 And dude, don't apologize for awkwardness. Pretty much all of us are awkward to some extent. Embrace the awkwardness~

    Also, AWESOME books this week. :D I'm so looking forward to The Curiosities--I adore the three of them. They are fantastic. (Oh, and Hemlock? Illuminate? Monstrous Beauty? MUCH AWESOMENESS. *-*)

    I hope you enjoy all of these. :)

    1. Hehe! I am hoping that it gets easier. I actually decided to do it because I need to do a video for a special blog thing and I wanted to practice lol. The Curiosities sounds really great. I love anthologies too so I am really looking forward to it.
