Q. ACK! Your favorite book/movie character (example Hermione Granger played by the Emma chick) just walked into the room! Who is it and what would be your first reaction? You get extra points if you include visual stimulation.

This is a tough one for me, I don't really pay attention to books to movies or actors.  The first one in my head was Jasper from the Twilight series, probably just because I saw those movies more recently. The next one who came into my mind was Ned Stark from the Game of Thrones, I thought they picked the perfect actor to play the part in the series, he was exactly what I had pictured.  And then I thought of James Caviezel playing Edmond Dantes in the Count of Monte Cristo, but I decided on  . . .

Daniel Day Lewis as Nathaniel Poe aka Hawkeye. I honestly don't know what I would say other than "You can rescue me at any time."  Honestly I haven't read the book yet but fully intend to in the near future because the movie was fantastic!


   In My Mailbox is a weekly event hosted by The Story Siren that I have decided to participate in.

How IMM works:
Make your own IMM post! You can post about books you've bought, gotten from the library, received for review... books don't have to arrive via your mailbox. 
I post every week, but you don’t have to. You can do one week out of the month or every other week it’s up to you. 
You don't have to call your post In My Mailbox... (some people don't even have mailboxes!)
I post my IMM on Sunday, but choose a day of the week that works for you.
Once you have your IMM posted, come back to The Story Siren on Sunday and add your link to the list. 
Try to post a comment on other bloggers IMM posts. I don’t expect you to post a comment on every single one, but pick a few!

All book bloggers are welcome, while I’d like to keep the theme to YA literature it’s NOT a requirement.

There is no right or wrong way to do In My Mailbox, you can vlog, you can take fun picture, you can use the books cover art, it’s up to you!

Most importantly HAVE FUN!
Well as I pointed out last Shelving Saturday, my TBR pile is out of control so guess what that means?  No books in my mailbox this week :(  I know, sad, right?!

As for last month, I sent out two books (I'm not sure if they have been received yet or not so I wont spoil the surprise by spilling the beans.  I did send out a copy of The Summer I Turned Pretty and The Last Unicorn, but I won't say who will be receiving them ;)


  1. Haven't seen your fist choice, but Jasper from Twilight is definitely a nice first thought. I also had that one, but went with Harry Potter characters. My first reaction would just be pure shock, haha.

    I'm a follower. :) Have a nice weekend!

    My FF can be found here!

  2. I unfortunately haven't read any of the Harry Potter Books or seen more than half of a couple of the movies. Shock is definitely a first reaction! Thanks for stopping by!
