... in books

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristie from The Story Siren.
In this meme we can brag about all the books we got or bought during the week and here is my haul.

I ordered some books at Book Depo and they finally arrived. 

 I got Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

Heartless by the wonderful Gail Carriger

 and Unearthly by Cynthia Hand.

I started reading Shiver right away but unfortunately there is much to do here due to the fact that my semester ends in about one week time, which means studying and tutoring hardcore, so I haven’t had a chance to read a lot during this week. Hopefully it will get better soon.

I also want to send a little question out into the universe and especially to you readers:

What were your favorite TV series when you were young?
I thought about it a lot and I also thought about watching them again sometime soon because I would really love to know if I can relate to the same people again as I could with 14/15/16/17?
Would be interesting….

I loved watching Full House from the age of probably 9 onwards and I got all the seasons on DVD at home – still love it. Wonderful series, especially John Stamos (yummy!)!

I also love(d) Friends and my all time favorites are still Rachel, Chandler and Joey (in that order).

When I was about 14 years old Dawson’s Creek came up and I watched it a lot. I wasn’t one of these hardcore fans but I liked it and I was so in love with Pacey and I always hoped that he and Joey would end up together living happily ever after. I wonder if I, when watching this whole series nowadays, would have those same feelings towards the actors and if I would love Joey as much as I loved her back then?

But never ever forget the amazing, wonderful and fab Gilmore Girls. When they went on air here in Austria for the first time, which was in 2003, I was 17. So I was practically as old as Rory and the relationship between my mum and me is kind of like the one Lorelai and Rory have. This is still my favorite series for cuddling up on the sofa or in bed and watching series all day long. It is just so comfy!

I am really curious? 
What were or are your favorite series – especially all time favorites?


  1. I love Unearthly, it is so wonderful and Hallowed was awesome as well.

    Happy reading

  2. Aaaa I hope you'll like Unearthly!! :) I loved it so much! And also Shiver is good! :) Great books! :) ;)

  3. My all time favorite series was Bonanza, I was in love with Adam (yes, Adam!) at the time. I wouldn't watch it today though :) I'm not much of a TV follower. I'll watch the Big Bang Theory when it's on (and I'm on). I did buy all the seasons of Six Feet Under and still think it is one of the best ones out there - never watched the last episode, because I never wanted it to end... I feel a little confused seeing these actors now in other series *laugh*.

    Have fun reading your books :) Unfortunately I do not have that much time to follow all your recommended reads (I need a couple of weeks for one book), plus, I like to read in my native language (German). But nice to read so much of you :D

    1. My native language is German as well but I just love to read in English. Might be because I study English and I am really annoyed when the German translation lacks a lot of wit.

  4. Great Mailbox! Unearthly was amazing. Hope you enjoy it too!
    Happy Reading!

  5. I was obsessed with Full House. I've seen every episode - multiple times with re-runs.
    Great mailbox too.
