In My Mailbox [11] - Fangirl Version-

This is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren.

WARNING: much crazy, exclamatory fangirl squealing in the post below. Read at your own risk.


THIS IS THE BEST WEEK EVER!

becausebecausebecause SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! I got FOUR books I was DYING to read. OMG!!!1!!!!!!!11!!!!!1!!1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1!11!!!

Ahem.

*calms down*

*gets excited again*

OMG.

*does happy dance*

This is the most excited I've ever been for books in a while *hyperventilates*

*dies*


The Newest Diana Wynne Jones book:


Lolita!!!! *dies*

Newest Courtney Summers book:


Been recommended a MILLION times:


1. Enchanted Glass by Diana Wynne Jones: *DIES AGAIN*

OMGOMGOMGOMGOOMGG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ahem.

As you may or may not know, I'm sort of obsessed with anything DWJ writes. She's just so amazing, her books are the best thing since chocolate bars, and I love everything she writes with all my heart. She's probably my favorite author if you asked me to pick one. AND OMG I HAVE HER LATEST BOOK AND I'M READING IT RIGHT NOW NOW NOW. SQUEEEE!!!!!!!!!

*is unashamed of fangirlism*

*says in creepy Gollum voice*

MYYYYYYYYYYYyyyyyyy PRECIOUSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. *strokes book*

Also, I'm even more excited because I got it four months before the actual US release date, which is in April, not January as it is in the UK. *huggles Book Depository* *showers Book Depository with chocolate* *huggles book* So I might have to hold off on the review for a bit :(

2. Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov: So, I'm been trying to read this book for HALF A YEAR, no joke *gnashes teeth*. Every time I went to the library, it was always "DUE" "OVERDUE" or "IN PROCESSING", whatever the heck that means. And the outrage, the horror, the digrace! The local bookstore didn't even have it when I went. So finally I got fed up and bought it online. And I'm nearly done and it's so beautiful and amazing and quite possibly one of the best books I've ever read and I only have a bit left but I put it down to read Enchanted Glass and this is when FOUR EYES would come in handy so I could read two books at once. *wants four eyes*

3. Some Girls Are by Courtney Summers: *dies* OMG. Okay, so Summer's Cracked Up to Be was amazing, I loved it and reviewed it but mostly loved it and reread it. I've been waiting very impatiently for this to arrive and I got it this morning and read it...and OMG. *dies* Amazing :) Review coming soon!

4. The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian by Sherman Alexie: Love the title, love the book blurb. And this is another one of those I've been meaning to read for months. I've been recommended it a couple million times and I'd always been meaning to get it but finally I bought it real cheap at a bookstore! Whooo! Can't wait to read it to see if it lives up to the hype (which I'm pretty sure it will).

-end of fangirlism-

Wait...just one more time...

OMG SO SHINY SHINY NEW BOOKS SHINY!!!!!

I am so excited to read Some Girls Are! I got it last week, but once I finished the book I had already been reading I had to read a book for a tour. Then another. And now I'm on another. And after this I have one more. But after THAT I am totally going to read it!

Stephanie aka The Stark Raving Bibliophile said...

*LOL* Love the creepy Gollum impersonation -- that's exactly how I am about books. ;-)

You have a terrific selection of books there. I have heard that The Completely True Diary... is outstanding. I have also read great reviews of Some Girls Are. I have been thinking about reading Lolita for quite a while, but I have yet to summon up the courage. I expect it will be dark. :-)

Happy reading!

Haha, I love how excited you are. I know exactly how it feels to be so thrilled to receive a certain book. Some Girls Are is brilliant right? I can't get over how awesome it was. Also, I've been dying to read Lolita for the longest time. Can't wait to read your thoughts on that one. :D

pepsivanilla said...

Haha, wow IMMs are never this funny!
Grr, libraries are so frustrating sometimes! Glad you finally got a hold of the book though :)

Little late in commenting but I have to squeel with you because I didn't even know Diane Wynne Jones even HAD a book coming out this year! You've just added another book on my book list to read. I don't know whether to thank you or glare at you cause the list is already quite long. Ah well, it's definitely something to look forward too though. Happy reading!
