In My Mailbox (41) + Vlog

Whaddup, you guys! So here is another fine Sunday, although I'm very concerned about my state of health for this coming Monday. My dad has a surprise in store for my sisters and I, which can always be considered dangerous. This time, however, I've cracked his secret code and I KNOW WHAT WE'RE DOING. It is in my opinion, which is a highly esteemed, generally correct one, that we are going rollerblading. And to that all I can say is, SON OF A BISH. I suspect I shall have a few bruises, beauts in fact, all over thanks to my dad's ridiculous notion that I will enjoy this perilous activity and, you know, SURVIVE. Also, watched The Legend of Korra yesterday and it was BANGIN'. Raise your hand if you watch the show too. Make sure to check out Lisa's weekly recaps every Wednesday, yo.

OH, and don't forget to link up to The Story Siren so that others can visit your IMM posts! Don't be shy about leaving comments either. I'd love to see what you got!

Hopping through. I'm really excited to read Tiger Lily and Selection. Enjoy!

*Raises Hand* I LOVE LOVE LOVE everything Avatar-related. The third episode of Legend of Korra was awesomesauce. But it comes on 11 in the morning when I'm half awake so I always miss it and have to find it online later. :/
I wanted to read Tiger Lily so badly! I never really understood the story of Peter Pan so I thought reading that would clear up some of the fog in my brain. I got The Selection too this week. Will probably post my IMM later. Great vlog Asher!! :D

Asher this was hilarious!! :) :) Great mailbox!! And enjoy all your awesome books this week ;) :)

Heidi said...

So sadly, my shockwave crashed, and I can't watch your vlog atm, but I'm going to comment anyway.  First, I am super excited to hear your thoughts on Tiger Lily, Freshman Year, and The Selection.  The only one I KNOW I want to read is Freshman Year, as it looks fun and light and cute.  I also have Blackwood, and am excited for it!  Hope it's good.

Tiffany said...

The Selection and Blackwood were really good! I also have Dark Companion but haven't read it yet and I'm planning to start While He Was Away either today or tomorrow. I'm dying to read Tiger Lily, it sounds fabulous. Enjoy your books :)

Paige said...

I read Freshman Year & Other Unnatural Disasters and I loved it. It was such a fun read! I hope you enjoy everything you got this week. Here's my IMM!

I cannot wait to read The Selection, I still have a while to wait for it to come out in the uk though, also Amanda Hockings new series sounds cool!
I got 3 new books this week that I bought online:
The Calling by Kelly Armstrong
Hallowed by Cynthia Hand
Life Eternal by Yvonne Woon

April Books & Wine said...

So, so so sooooo PUMPED for Tiger Lily. I just love retellings.

ALSO omg THE SELECTION I freakin hope that one is good, I mean, it's like The dystopia Bachelor, what can go wrong?


Angie M. said...

I adore thee, Asher, and not just because of your vlogs. 
INTERNETZ HUGZ!! I didn't take it home this week, but I also have The Selection waiting to be read and I can't wait to read your review! Let me know what you think about Wake! :)

Sonia said...

I think this is my first time checking out one of your blogs (I know it is!) and awwww - ASHER IS SO CUTE <3 I guess it helps when you have SUPER AWESOME books to spotlight! 

Tiger Lily sounds like the best thing ever and I am dying to read from Tinkerbell's POV. It should make things interesting at the very least, right?!

AND YO. Wake, Freshman Year, The Selection... way to just go ahead and choose all the books I can't wait to read (oh wait that's like all of them). I CAN'T WAIT TO READ YOUR REVIEWS AND BE DROOLING FOR THEM EVEN MORE.

Have a fantastic, amazing, stupendous reading week, Asher!

Fara Nani said...

Gah! So jealous that you got Freshman Year and The Selection. Awesome IMM!=D

Drop by my IMM?

Michelle Chew said...

Freshman Year and Unnatural Disasters looks good! You've got quite a number of books there. Happy reading!

Liz. R said...

THE LEGEND OF KORRA. Oh my God, it's amazing. I was so scared it wouldn't be as good as The Last Airbender, but so far I am impressed.

Aaaanyway :P. So jealous of The Selection! I love that cover. Plus, yay for Artemis Fowl! I'm really happy you're reading it. Great IMM, happy reading :).

Sarah (saz101) said...

And Temptation! ...is that a flaming rock on the cover? :S

Asher_Knight said...

 *slaps five* YOU'RE DAMN RIGHT. Everyone should love everything Avatar related because they are THE BOMB. Oh man, wasn't it super duper AY-MAZING? I couldn't get enough. And Makooo *swoons*

Tiger Lily has been so good so far, but now I just got to sit down AND ACTUALLY FINISH IT. The Selection is amazing. I really enjoyed it, which was unexpected considering all the mixed reviews. I'll stop by ASAP. And thanks <333

Asher_Knight said...

 Hehe. Glad you laughed and had a good tie :DD THANK YOU. I'll try to stop by as soon as I can. Reading/commenting has been pretty hectic with everything going on lately, so bear with me.

Asher_Knight said...

Hey, it happens, and I appreciate the comments anyway, OF COURSE. My thoughts on Tiger Lily will be coming sooner than you think, and I ADORED The Selection, surprisingly. I can't wait to start Freshman Year because I heard it was supposed to be HILARIOUS. And Blackwood roused my curiosity so we'll see how that goes! 

Asher_Knight said...

The Selection I enjoyed IMMENSELY. And DAYUUM, you already read Blackwood? I'm so stoked to hear that it was good, especially since we generally have the same taste ;) You should TOTALLY tweet me your thoughts on While He Was Away, since I have to read that soon.

Asher_Knight said...

 The Selection is a really fun read and I adored it! And THE CALLING. I have to read Armstrong's new series. I'm SO BEHIND. And Hallowed! OKAJHSDFLKJAMG I loved that book SO HARD. I still have to read Life Eternal, though I honestly don't know if I'll get to it soon. FAB mailbox ;D

Asher_Knight said...

 RIIIGHT? It's already pretty good and I'm a couple chapters in. I just want to settle down and finish it already because mentions of the Lost Boys and such are happening and things are getting exciting!

The Selection, surprisingly, I REALLY adored. Just go into it with an open mind and go with the flow. THAAANK YOU, APRIL. Got to stop by pretty soon, but life has been so cray-cray these days. I'll be popping over ASAP!

Asher_Knight said...

GLAD YOU ENJOYED THE VLOG. I have so much fun making them, honestly, that I just kind of do whatever when I'm up there.

So far Tiger Lily has impressed me, and I hope it carries throughout. AND THE SELECTION. Bro, I totally adored that one. Can't wait to sit down with Freshman Year. Sadly, I was disappointed by Wake. :( THAANK YOU, SONIA! Same to you, you awesome blogger!

Asher_Knight said...

Don't be jealous 'cos Freshman Year is already out so demand it from your library if you have to. And The Selection is just releasing. HOPE YOU ENJOY THEM at some point.

And I totally will, as soon as I can manage it.

Asher_Knight said...

 It's supposed to be reaaaally funny, so I'm stoked!

Asher_Knight said...

 LOVE THAT SHOW SO HARD. I kind of like it better than The Last Airbender but then I'm not sure if I do or not. All I know is that I'm addicted. AND OH, MAAAAKOOOO *swoons*

The Selection was actually really good for me, so I hope you like that one. And I'm reading The Eternity Code right now and TOTALLY DIGGING IT. Thanks, Liz <333

Asher_Knight said...

 The Selection is sooo good, DUDE, so gooood. And Wake was, unfortunately, disappointing. FRESHMAN YEAR is supposed to be hilarious. I didn't know that thes e would make you so excited or me!

And flaming rock, the sun. Pot-ay-to, pot-ah-to, right?
