In My Mailbox/ What I'm Reading/ Weekly Favs

Hello fellow readers. It's sunday and you know what that means, In My Mailbox! Oddly I haven't bought any books this week, so instead of not posting I decided that I would blog about the books I am reading and some of this weeks favorites.

I'm still reading Shadows, by Ilsa Bick. I'm reading slow because I'm sadly a little disappointed with this book. Not because it's not amazing but because I'm so frustrated with the author! I feel like Ms. Bick (not going to assume she is or isn't married), could have gone AMAZING with this book, but places I feel she could have gone right she went left. I will do a review on the book, and the first one because I think they are still worth the read.

This week I'm also reading Crazy Sexy Diet, by Kris Carr. Kris is a cancer survivor and author of one of my fav books: Crazy Sexy Cancer. This book is all about diet and vegan living, and it makes me want to take charge of what I eat, sadly I love Starbucks to much to change I fear, but time will tell.

This week in general is a favorite because it was a no chemo week. This upcoming tuesday I have chemo again, but I had the week off which is always a plus to be feeling able to move around and read.

I also have a Pinterest favorite this week, Pinterest is a guilty pleasure and a time consumer for me. If any of you are a fan of BroTips on twitter, than you should like this BabeTip. I find it personally relevant, and I'm sure will resonate with you all as well as we all have our battles.

This weeks books. Sorry they are backwards. Macbook. 


Happy readings to you all!

Update and Explanation on the Absence

Hello all! I thought I would give you all a quick update. As many of my faithful followers will notice, I have been "away" from the blog for quite awhile, with random and infrequent updates. I was originally not going to mention on the blog the reason for the absence but I recently checked my blog email and noticed that I have missed quite a few emails and without wanting to appear unprofessional or rude I decided to share the reason. I don't know if anyone will even see this anymore but 6 months ago, April 23rd to be exactly I was diagnosed with stage 4 Hodgkins Lymphoma, a type of Cancer that affects one's immune system. I have been sick for over 2 years and was just recently diagnosed properly. I have been in chemo for the last 5 months and had chemo extended and additional two months. I don't plan on talking much about this on the blog because I want this to be the one thing in my life not affected by my cancer. If you would like to know more about this I do "tweet" quite often about it. My personal twitter is "sVioletp". I am trying to blog more often now, I know I have probably lost most of my readers but I will continue to review when I feel able to do so. Love you all.

In My Mailbox: September 15th 2012

Hello all my lovely fellow book nerds! I know this is a day early, but I thought since it was on my mind I should post my "In My Mailbox". I only bought one book this week, but I thought I would also include my new DVD purchase my mom bought me this week whilst I lounge about in bed.

Shadows by Ilsa Bick (So excited for this one, 
managed to find it early in stores)

Once Upon A Time, good show to remind you of childhood!

Also this picture is a week fav I found on pinterest, I'm a bit of a dreamer so naturally I love this whimsical picture

What have you guys been loving this week?
