    Hey you’re awesome!!!! I think your first vlog is great, especially with the help of having such a great mailbox this week! I too am excited to read Tiger Lily, it looks and sounds like a great read, as well as Hemlock 😀
    And ooooo, a signed copy of Grave Mercy!!! I loveddddddd that book and would love to win your giveaway of Grave Mercy, so thanks for that!!!

    Alyssa ❤

  3. You did completely fine 🙂 My vlog goes up tmrw . . first timer too so let’s see how that goes 😀 I gotta admit, I was laughing at the Michelle Zink book story 😀

    • You’ll do great, Monica! I am glad I took the plunge. Now I know what to work on for next time. Maybe I’ll even invest in a better camera. And… NEXT week I might be acting like a giddy fan girl if what I think will be coming in my mailbox actually DOES come in… Stay tuned! 😀

  4. I loved it! You showcased the books perfectly… not waving them around like some reviewers do when they get excited (I like to be able to see the cover/width of each book in vlogs.. I’m sure others do too!) And you shared a piece of yourself with the readers of MTG, which is essentially, what makes vlogs so handy to reviewers! Can’t wait to read your review on Tiger Lily and Gilt, and looking forward to your giveaways!

    • Haha! Thanks for watching. Oddly enough, I feel that I was holding back a bit in this video. ;)~

      The prom giveaway will come up by the end of the month. Monday starts another new giveaway, too! Stay tuned!

  5. Brilliant vlog! I think you did it exactly at the right place, and it was nice to hear your thoughts 🙂

  6. Great job on your first vlog! Very organized and nicely paced. And your mailbox is killer too! Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick looks really cute. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on Crewel and I Hunt Killers too.
    Happy reading!

  7. Awesome job, Jenna! But I knew you would do great. 🙂 I really like being able to see the actual books, something about seeing them rather than a photograph. And your excitement about them is fun too. I look forward to more vlogs from you!

  8. Great job! I’ve always like watching book haul/imm vlogs~
    I really need to get my hands on a copy of Grave Mercy soon,…I admit that its size scares me.

    and yay for Tiger Lily and Hemlock!!! I am dying to hear read them! I look forward to hearing what you think… The release dates seems so far away! I hope they’re worth the wait 🙂
