IMM#16 -The Forbidden One-

IMM is hosted by The Story Siren I looove love her blog! So you really should check it out!

As always. My video turned out to be too long and rambling and every single time I tried to edit it or cut it my computer would just fail me T_T I hate my video right now...but be sure. 
It was full of me being so happy my face hurts from smiling too much AND of gratitude towards the person who sent me the package that arrived this week.
I'm beyond happy-see? I'm rambling here for lack of a better video editor-and more than excited to show you guys what books I ended up getting this week
So, here I go.

-La Ladrona de Libros by Markus Zusak -PB- Spanish edition
The Book Thief in english.
I already own this book in ebook format on my kindle for PC and it's in english lol. but I really wanted to buy it in spanish. First so I can read both editions and compare and see how well they did while traducing it AND I really want both, my mom and dad to read it. I've read only amazing and beautiful things about the book so I'm more than excited to own both copies.


Oh Nat! How do I even BEGIN to thank you.
This package was an unexpected one and such a perfect surprise I cried *-* you know I mean that literally. I don't know how you can keep sending me things with me not sending even a letter to thank you. I might be working on my thankyous' letters for some people. And you lady are one of those. Thank you so very much-hugs you-I really really REALLY want you to grasp in your head how HUGE this is for me. It means the world and don't ever forget THAT and how grateful I am. 
In my mail I got:
-Carrier Of The Mark by Leigh Fallon -PB-
-The Maze Runner by James Dashner -PB- UK Book #1
-The Scorch Trials by James Dashner -HB- Book #2
-The Death Cure by James Dashner -HB- Book #3
~Insert me screaming and running up and down my house-that doesn't even have a second story to run up to- OMG! NAT!!!! you got me none other than the book that made my BookPics facebook page spam a bit with my reviewing it without reading the last 19 pages.
THE UK EDITION! The one book I coveted the UK edition more than any other I've ever read...
-Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma -PB- UK
I got the incredible and really freak-out opportunity to interview Tabitha a while ago when I had just finished or almost-finished reading Forbidden. 
You can check my review HERE and my interview with Tabitha HERE.
She's such an amazing person and author and I thank her yet again for agreeing to make the interview. I really was so excited you have NO idea. The book made me cry since the very first page and up until...well...when there were 19 pages remaining to finish it. It's one of the best books I read in 2011. Please give it a chance!
Thank you so much Nat!
Now on to-

My Reading Pile #3

My reading pile is an idea created by Fiktshun in which you share what your reads for the week are or well the wishful reads-rereads-rerereads and well you get the hint. Check her blog out you know I'm a devoted stalker, I mean, follower ;)

New on my reading pile this week:
-Hushed by Kelley York
THAT is the ONLY new book I managed to add to my reading pile this week. I got to read the teasers post over at Fiktshun and she always manages to make me want to read every single book she teases us about so I finally used the few $$ that I had left from a previous GC and bought this for my kindle for PC. It's so good so far. I really put down all my other reads just because I got so caught up with the story I couldn't manage to get into the other books I was reading.
I only got to read AND rererereread some parts of ONE book last week and that's 
A Touch Morbid by Leah Clifford. 
I'm finally reviewing again and that book is the responsible one so I thank it, Leah, Rachel, and the anonymous person that traded the copy with her so it could finally get here *-* 
You can check my review of ATM2 HERE
I'm so behind on my reading is not even funny. I still have to finish my read of My Soul To Take for the Soul Screamers reading challenge-sign up post is on the left side-bar.- and I'm still reading The Demon's Lexicon along with Incarnate which comes out this tuesday! Incarnate is really good so far so I hope hope hope and hope some more that I can get it read, if not by tuesday at least this week so I can post my review up soon.

So my beautiful people. What did YOU get in your mailboxes and what are you planning to read this coming week?
