In My Mailbox (24): Accepted!



It was a very plentiful week for me and I hope that it was for all of you out there, too. Not only did I receive some amazing books for review but I also finally received my first college acceptance letter in the mail. The feeling is overwhelming! 

I'm sure many of you know that feeling when that first letter come home and the emotions are just all over the walls. With this college being my first choice I'm pretty sure I melted into a puddle when receiving the letter! Haha!

Myra Garces-Bacsal from GatheringBooks said...

Congratulations on your college acceptance letter! I imagine how euphoric it must feel getting into your first choice! Your life is about to change, and you have your books as your friends to kind of prepare you as well. :) I also honestly feel that your bookblogging should sharpen your writing skills - so those term papers should be easy peasy for you.

Now back to your IMM loot, I am particularly envious of your "The Warlock by Michael Scott" - I think I have book one from this series - you have to let me know if you have reviews up on the first two books - you like them? They seem like my kind of material, you see. Dust girl and Graffiti Moon also look intriguing.

Have fun with your books! :) And again, my congratulations to you.
