In My Mailbox (19): Weak-willed

So this week was a little crazy as far as I was concerned. Monday to Tuesday had us cowering in the midst of Typhoon Nesat, the strongest typhoon we’ve had this year. Wednesday to Saturday had me running on 12 hours of sleep all in all, with shift adjustments and reunion dinners and friend’s weddings…no wonder I feel so tired until now.

But anyway, there shouldn’t have been any reason to make an In My Mailbox post today, but then I realized that I was kind of a weakling when it comes to new and well-reviewed books by several friends and trusted bloggers. So, when I had the chance to visit Fully Booked this week to look for a wedding gift for my friend, I chanced upon this:

Daugther of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor...and a new bag behind it. :D

It was a lone hardcover copy in the branch near my office. And I’ve been curious about his book after all the glowing reviews around me. I debated for about five minutes before finally picking it up, and walking straight to the cashier and making my purchase.

*hangs head* I know, I am weak. But…I just couldn’t leave without it!

Okay, I don’t regret it at all. :P I scanned the first page and I almost didn’t want to put it down…but I promised myself I’ll start reading this once I finish reading my first Required Reading book for October. I hope I find it as good as everyone else did. :)

P.S. The new bag behind the book was a purchase from Paris that only got to me last Friday. Hello new bag. :)

  1. Yay, Daughter of Smoke and Bone! So excited for you to read that. I really hope you end up loving it as much as the rest of us did. :) LOL you got a Longchamp bag, I’ve heard it’s cheaper in Europe.

    • Haha I got the bag (well, my friends got it for me after I left) in Paris, but I found out it was about 3-4 Euros cheaper in Amsterdam. LOL. I think there are more colors in France, though. Still, it’s cheaper than getting one here. :)

    You got Daughter of Smoke and Bone. How awesome. Hope you can get to it soon. I don’t know how you can handle it just sitting on your bookshelf. I would’ve caved immediately.

  3. Oh Smoke and Bone was amazing – I just finished it yesterday! Hope you like it as much as I did.
