In My Mailbox (11) - VLOG! + rambles

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi from The Story Siren, inspired by Alea!

The title says it all, folks. If you're just interested in what I got, you just have to watch the first minute and a half :p After that, I just talk about things I felt like talking about this week, don't feel pressured to watch the vlog!

In my mailbox: Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Septys (library), The Eleventh Plague by Jeff Hirsch (for review), and Prized by Caragh M. O'brien (for review)

Other stuff mentioned (links to IMDb)
TV Shows: Sherlock, 24, Suits, White Collar
Inside Job (documentary)
Jane Eyre (2011 movie, I said 2010, my bad)
Edward Scissorhands (movie)


  1. I don't even know what I'm talking about" made me LOL. Hehehe. I watched Jane Eyre and was disappointed. The drama version was a lot better although I couldn't get into the book either :(

    and omg I adored Edward Scissorhands! He was cooky but so endearing. Less TV shows and more anime lately. And tell me about it. University is going to be crazy. Happy reading love.

  2. DFTBA has me intimidated now. =P I'll try.

    Edward Scissorhands is the best! My dad says that watching the movie was what made him want to move to North America.

    Really. The sculpted shrubbery was what decided it, in the end. =)

    Been meaning to comment for a while on your blog. It's absolutely amazing by the way. Do you know how AWESOME you are? =D

  3. Ooh The Eleventh Plague! Enjoy :). And I didn't really love Edward Scissorhands...I mean, I liked it, but it was odd :P. I struggle reading classics as well! I just can't get into them. Happy reading and enjoy the rest of the weekend! :)

  4. Sherlock sounds great! I'm definitely going to check it out. I've read to of the original novels and I adored them, a modern version tv-series sounds great as well.

    I watched Edward Scissorhands a long time ago and I cannot say that I felt that it was memorable.. but I know a lot of people would disagree with me on that one.

    Ha ha, I loved your cute rambling vlog. Blog when you have the time and feel like it, that would be my advice :)

  5. I'll try to find Sherlock Holmes, I'm generally a huge fan of anything the BBC puts out!

    If you like British TV, I think you'd really like the show Midsomer Murders. It plays on public TV sometimes, and you can probably find it at libraries. That's where I discovered it, and I've since bought TWO $150 DVD sets. I LOVE this show. It's about this cop and his sidekick who investigate murders in villages in England, and it's just... absolutely amazing. Highly, highly recommended.

  6. THE ELEVENTH PLAGUE!!! I'm so jealous. :P And Prized too? Sweet. I loved Birthmarked too. AND HECK YES SHERLOCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

  7. Edward Scissorhands brings back memories.

    Great books especially Between Shades of Gray. Happy reading :)

  8. Sherlock is so good. agree.
    My friend said: "I saw this weird Tv show on tv the other day. so weird."

    I used to watch Edward and Scissorhands all the time when I was little. Now I think it's scary. But when I was 5, I used to watch Xfiles too.

    bye. =))

  9. You know what got me to read Jane Eyre? April Lindler's JANE. I have a phobia of classics, but after reading JANE, I was able to read Jane Eyre before I saw the movie!

    Good luck with school. I hope that you at least can stay on Twitter!!

  10. Aw, you are so adorable. :D Love your videos! Think I'm gonna add The Eleventh Plague to my list.

    I haven't watched Sherlock, but I've heard loads of good stuff about it. Maybe I should give it a chance? :D

    It is such a good show and really popular here in England. Actually, right now, they're making a second series in London, but I think they're behind schedule because they had to stop for the London Riots, but yeah, SO EXCITED for that one.


for those who are confused, it means "Don't forget to be AWESOME". *hugs*
