In My Mailbox was created by Kristi at The Story Siren because:
"I get books to read and then ultimately share my thoughts about with my readers. As much as I want to, I can’t possibly read every book I receive. Yet, I still wanted a way to feature those books on the blog, even though it might not be in the form of a review. Problem solved! Every week I'd share the books I received that week... ones I'd bought, or gotten at the library, and ones that I'd receive to review on the blog. That way I could mention titles that might not otherwise get some face-time on The Story Siren..."
I find the same thing happening at A Backwards Story. I'm so backed up on reviews atm... That's why I like these videos!
Nothing atm. Just finished INCARNATE by Jodi Meadows and it's one of THOSE books. You know, the ones that are so good, if you read anything else right after it, it will read like a piece of trash that you would have loved any OTHER time of your life. But not after something so incredible...!
(The video's dark again. I filmed it when I got home around 1 am because I was still wide awake. I just couldn't stay up the extra 23 minutes to convert the file to a video, so here it is today!)
