In My Mailbox #52 (my first vlog!)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren where you can talk about the books you bought or received this week.

This week, I finally did it! I got in front of the camera and made a vlog! I think it turned out pretty well, except for my incapability of staying in the middle of the picture, and my excessive use of "umm" and "so, yeah." Editing this video took forever, so I'm not sure whether I'll be able to devote that much time to an IMM vlog every week, but I'll try, since making the vlog turned out to be kind of fun, after I got over the nerves and the weird feeling I was talking to myself. So, take it away, vlog-me!

Love & Leftovers by Sarah Tregay (thank you to Kate at Ex Libris!)
Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
If I Tell by Janet Gurtler
Delirium by Lauren Oliver
The Lonely Hearts Club by Elizabeth Eulberg
Not That Kind of Girl by Siobhan Vivian


  1. I hope you enjoy all these books! I thought Delirium was really good.
    Happy Reading :-)
    (btw, I love your blog design)

  2. Great VLOG!  I agree, they take so long to edit that I am never sure if they are worth it, but yours was good!! 

    Here is my IMM
    Hoppy Easter and Happy Reading!Lindsay @ Turning the Pages

  3. Great books - I loved Delirium!

    My IMM:

    Happy reading!

  4. YAY!! Congrats on your first vlog, and don't worry EVERYONE says "um" 50 billion times in their first one, I know I did! :D They do get easier though, and they are a lot of fun! Awesome books this week too, I hope you enjoy each and every one! 

    You can check out my IMM video and post for this week at the link below-- Happy Reading! :)Lea @ LC's Adventures in Libraryland

  5. Thanks for dropping by my IMM and yay for first vlogs! With mine I kept having trouble getting the whole book into the picture, LOL. Not That Kind of Girl is really good, don't let that cover deceive you! It doesn't capture the spirit of the story very well, unfortunately. Hope you enjoy your books! :)

  6. Yeah, I had trouble with that at first, too. Before I filmed the vlog, I just took random videos of me holding up books to see where I had to hold them in order for them to be in the picture, and that helped. Okay, good - hope I'll like it too :)

  7. Well, the Suzanne Collins books are AWESOME, of course!  Hope you enjoy Love & Leftovers!! :)

  8. Happy Easter and good reading in the coming week.  Looks like you have some good books to enjoy.

  9. Oh I really need to read the hunger games series as well. Enjoy them all!


  10. Great IMM I'm so glad you decided to go for it.

    Happy reading.

  11. Catching Fire and Mockingjay are awesome!! And Love & Leftovers is so good too :)  Enjoy all your awesome books this week and happy Easter :) ;)

  12. Great job. Vlogs take up an amazing amount of time. Love listening to your cover issues. Made me smile.

  13. You did fine with your first blog! Congratulations.

  15. *WAVES* HELLO!!!! LOOK! IT'S YOU! ON VIDEO! Amazing IMM! 
    Catching Fire and Mockingjay! Oooh... and Delirium... you know... I now own 2 copies, but haven't read either :S

  16. *waves back* HI!!!! :D Thanks! You should read Deliruim - read it now and really liked it :)

  17. Totally freaking out!!!!!! Ahhhh!!!! I'm so happy. This is awesome. Keep doing the vlogs! Not That Kind Of Girl keep me up all night! It was sooooo goood. Ari recommended it to me and I was hooked! I hope you at least like it or reaaally hate it so I can read that review hahaha. Your English is so much better than mine! Mine is more like Spanglish! This rocks!!! Can you tell I'm excited? Lol!

  18. I can definitely tell you're excited :D I will keep doing vlogs, but I don't know whether I'll do one every week, maybe always one for two weeks, since a vlog for like two books seems kind of pointless. I started Not That Kind of Girl and I'm really liking it so far! Thanks :)
