imm / under my christmas tree (1)

In My Mailbox (imm) is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren.

After being spoiled silly with a bunch of books and other awesome gifts this year, you’d think Santa and I were BFF’s. Seriously.

Also, sorry this video is obscenely long. Apparently it’s a struggle to talk about 15 books and 5 toys in a concise manner.


1) Numb (Sean Ferrell)
2) One Day (David Nicholls)
3) Being Jamie Baker (Kelly Oram)
4) Allison Hewitt Is Trapped: A Zombie Novel (Madeleine Roux)
5) Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares (Rachel Cohn & David Levithan)
6) Monsters of Men (Patrick Ness)
7) Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (Jonathan Safran Foer)
8) Medium Raw: A Bloody Valentine to the World of Food and the People Who Cook (Anthony Bourdain)
9) Neverwhere (Neil Gaiman)
10) The Kid Table (Andrea Seigel)
11) Edges (Léna Roy)
12) Anna and the French Kiss (Stephanie Perkins)
13) Stolen (Lucy Christopher)
14) A Wrinkle in Time quintet boxed set (Madeleine L’Engle)
15) Fall for Anything (Courtney Summers)

On the cutting room floor because the video is ridiculously long as it is:

16) Fixing Delilah (Sarah Ockler)
17) Forgotten (Cat Patrick), ARC


1) iHome travel speakers
2) iStand
3) Marvin the Martian shirt
4) Watch
5) Waking Sleeping Beauty

    You vlogged! Yay! It was A-mazing :) There are a TON of great books on that list–I can’t wait to see what you think of them.

    As your video editor (lol!) I’m glad you did not cut anything out :-) it was perfect & delightful – just like you! Seriously though, I loved the candid moments in between. You are too funny!

  4. Sarah says:

    Wow you got a lot of great stuff! And I love your Christmas tree btw!!
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

    • thatcovergirl says:

      Thanks, Sarah! My Christmas tree was donated to me by a dear friend. I like big fluffy fat trees, for sure. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to you, too. :)

  5. Jess M. says:

    You are in for a treat with EL&IC! It was one of my favorite reads this year. I’ll be looking forward to reading your thoughts on it!

  6. Em says:

    I’ve got to second what Jess M. said! “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close” is one of my favorites!

  7. Tina says:

    OHHHH you have Alison Hewitt is Trapped! The book had me at zombie, blogging and bookstore. So lucky.

    My copy of Being Jamie Baker is taking too long to arrive here. The postal service here sucks during the holidays. I hope it doesn’t get lost.

    I hope you like Dash and Lily. Such a cute cute book. And it’s funny you have Monsters of Men but not the first two! I have read Knife, but I’m waiting for some free time before I read the next two books so I can read it without interruption. :)

    If I wasn’t too conscious of my voice, I’d do a vlog too and I bet it would be as long as this one. I talk too much sometimes (well, I think it’s obvious on my Twitter).

    Since this is a Christmas post, I can still greet you Merry Christmas! And Happy 2011 soon! :)

      I hardly ever win anything, so when I got the notification email from Goodreads my jaw dropped! I will definitely let you know how that goes. Also, re: BJB, if it doesn’t show up in a month, let me know, I’d be happy to mail you mine.

      I feel ya on the series thing. Lauren thinks I’m going to totally get sucked in so I may have to wait for some sort of snowpocalypse to start it. =)

      You should TOTALLY do the vlog. Dooo eeeet. And happy new year to you!

    Okay, again, Foer’s stuff is awesome. Pleeeeeease let me know what you think once you read it. Also, I am a documentary nerd! Have you seen Food Inc? Also, I got “Fall For Anything” and am very excited to read it. Aaaaand, hilarious vlog. Alright, that’s it.

    • thatcovergirl says:

      I definitely will. And no, I haven’t seen Food, Inc. I’ve heard good things, but will it make me scared to eat anything?? ;) Thanks for finding the vlog entertaining!

  9. Bri says:

    Yes, I love Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. Yay Neverwhere. Yay several of those books!

    Cute vlog!

    • thatcovergirl says:

      Thanks chickie. You’ve read Neverwhere?! I’m glad it got a yay from you!

      • briwrotethis says:

        Also, I want WAKING SLEEPING BEAUTY. Please tell me how you like it.

        I’ve read a good deal of Gaiman’s. I don’t remember *much* of Neverwhere, however.
