In My Mailbox

Hi guys! I meant to get a couple of reviews up between this IMM and the last one, but I've had a really busy week with classes and other things, so I just didn't have time! I think I've adjusted to being back at college again though, so hopefully this week I can get back to a real posting schedule.

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren, with full details on her page.

I actually only got one book this week, so no vlog this time.
I got:

The Iron Witch, by Karen Mahoney.

It just came out this week, and I've been waiting for ages to read this book. I started it last night, and so far so good!

What did you get in your mailboxes this week? Also, what do you think about vlogs vs normal posts? Do you like the vlogs for IMM or do you prefer to have things written down?

Your mailbox may be small, but what a great book to fill it! I hope you enjoy it.

I know what you mean about being busy between classes! But hey, you got an awesome book. At least I hope it's awesome because I've been wanting to read it!

I like vlogs, but I don't mind normal posts. I do normal posts. :)

The cover of Iron Witch looks awesome. It's so beautiful. Glad to hear that it's so far so good. ;)
