What's Cool? Buzzing Mailbox!

What's Cool? is an anytime meme created by yours truly. This is where I showcase the Cool things I got, happened, and anything that I think is really Cool!

(And yeah, Cool is a noun here. ;D)


What's Cool?


If you follow me via Twitter and has seen my tweets, you know what I'm talking about.

This week was the Coolest week ever! Why? Because my mailbox (which is imaginary, we only have a gate, a door, a doorstep, and a doorbell) buzzed with packages! PACKAGES. In plural form. *faints* And I'm sharing you what I got here!

Yay, here they are!

Showing their wonderful covers. :)

The Glimpse by Claire Merle (signed) - won from Hannah's Dystopian December giveaway @ The Girl in a Cafe

Okay so, this part is not that Cool. I've been pretty busy this month (can you believe 2013 just started and I'm already busy as hell?!) so I didn't get to post my promised reviews and only posted these:

Upcoming *sure* reviews:
Splintered by A.G Howard
Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi (Shatter Me #2)
Stealing Parker by Miranda Kenneally (Hundred Oaks High #2)

I found out about this when Book Nerd Canada shared this photo on her Facebook fan page. I was going to exit when my eyes accidentally dropped and saw MICHELLE SHOUTS RANDOM in it(!!!). I have to do a several mental check to confirm that my blog is called Michelle Shouts Random and look at the photo again and again and again.

I am not over-reacting. I mean, I may be. But the thing is, I haven't even reached one year of blogging, and the blogs that I was with, there in the list? They're all awesome. I can't imagine my blog is listed along with theirs.

I honestly have no idea someone--apart from me, other Filipino book bloggers, and you, my amazing reader--knew my blog existed. XD So I think this made this What's Cool? edition, together with my lovely haul. <3 font="">

*waves to amazing people at Epic Reads* Thank you so much! I think you're epic, too. :)) 


Let me know what Cool thing/s happened to you! Share them on the comments below or just link me your Stacking the Shelves/In My Mailbox posts!

Let's rock the last week of January and welcome February with love! Enjoy reading and God bless everyone. :)
