Weekly Book Rounup (Oct #3, #4, & Nov #1)

Sooo much to catch up on! I've been lazy in the IMM department these last few weeks, but no more! Here's what I've gotten for last three weeks1!

Library:
Nothing much to report on this front as I've been trying to shorten my TBR pile. It has gotten rather out of hand of late. I did get Catcher in the Rye a couple weeks ago, though. I love that book! Holden is awesome, and one of my new favorite characters. Expect a full review in the near future.


In My Mailbox:
I won Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Caroll from Velvet in an Easter egg contest she had during Alice in Wonderland Week. She also threw in a box of Chocorooms2 from the Catapillar. Thanks, V! I've set Alice aside to be my Christmas read3.
I also won a Leviathon postcard signed by Scott Westerfeld (!!!) from Celia. Thanks, girl!
From Fatastic Book Review, I won a signed copy of Soulless by Gail Carriger, which came straight from the author! She wrote, "Best read with tea!" inside. So true! Thank you, Tina and Miss Carriger! This book was fantastic and hilarious!
I also won a crisp new copy of Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick from Cindy over at Simple Life and Reading. Thnaks, Cindy!


In Other News:
~Don't forget to enter
MY FIRST CONTEST EVER! One lucky winner willl have their choice from five of my all time favorite books!
~Also, Dahlia is celebrating her 1 year blogoversary right now, and there's a copy of Leviathon up for grabs, so be sure to head on over for that!!!
~It lives! My computer is back in action! Turns out it wasn't actually dead, it just had a massive stroke or something and lost all its memory. But fear not! It was backed up on a portable hard drive. I highly recommend you procure one for your computer, they are a God send4.
~It's my birthday (week)!!! Feel free to shower me in praise and well wishes, and don't forget to cast yor vote on my poll! ;)

Happy reading,
Zombie Girrrl

Congrats for the contest wins! I actually won hush hush too! I'm waiting for it in the mail x) Yay for your computer living! I haven't had that kind of luck with my last two computers (they all got viruses and died T^T;)

Chocoroom, chocoroom, chocoroom. *gasp* It is fun! =O

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ZG!!! You're so old now (just kidding... or am I? o_O).

pirate penguin said...

LOL. You: Patch... *sizzle*

Couldn't agree more ;) I'm sure that I'll be the same way once I get the book in my hands. I still flip through my ARC once in a while and relive all the moments where Nora was with Patch. <3 Aha! So your birthday was the 8th? Mine's the 12! :)
