Why I Should Be Banned from IMM + My actual IMM + LOTS of Bloopers

My first In My Mailbox ever. So sorry, Kristi, I ruined a beautiful thing!

This is what happens to a bored 24 year old woman whose boyfriend, and friends (as all my friends are guys!) have gone away for a “man weekend.” It started out as a serious attempt to do an IMM and turned into a train wreck. I promise I was sober. I really do. I’d feel better about sharing this if I could use drunkiness as an excuse 🙂 There are bloopers at the end if you can make it to that point 🙂

Enjoy..and if you haven’t noticed..I don’t take myself too seriously.

AND if you just want to see silly bloopers in which I dance and make a fool out of myself..go to 6:38ish in the video

About Jamie

Jamie is a 30 year old married lady who is in denial that she’s actually that old. When she’s not reading you can find her doing Pilates followed by eating ice cream, listening to music with oversized headphones and having adventures with her husband and dog.

    BEST IMM EVER! I think you should do one every week! It was extremely entertaining, and if anything, MORE people will want to follow you after this awesome video. Best part by far: dancing in the bloopers. Brilliant! 🙂

  2. Jamie, that was so cute and hilarious! I really want to get both those Rob Sheffield books you mention.
    Plus, your ringtone is ace.

  3. Anastasia– HAHA yeah. I had WAY more dancing footage during it but only included that. There was some really offkey and horrible singing but I chose to spare the ears of my readers.

    Lyndsey– Thanks! You definitely should! Love is A Mix Tape was incredible. It wasn't at all what I was expecting when I picked it up. And thanks, I adore MGMT! 🙂

  4. Great Vlog:) I'm excited to read Before I fall, I've heard such good things. And Delirium looks fantastic, so I'm looking forward to reading Lauren Oliver. Fantastic books this week!

  5. kirsty at the overflowing library says:

    fab books – before I fall is awesome

    my IMMB is here

  6. I loved that! I have never done a vlog. I was highly entertained by yours though :o)

  7. Jenny–Thanks! I'm excited to read it, too! I'm excited for Delirium as well!

    Kirsty– That makes me more eager to read it when I keep hearing good things!

    Rebecca– Thanks! 🙂 I'm glad I could at least entertain a few people. I probably made alot of people feel better about themselves haha. I had never done a vlog but I was really bored last night so I figured I'd give it a go!

  8. TNBBC Super Mod says:

    Ahhaaaa.. Jamie, I loved that vlog. You should totally do more, and I love how you added bloopers at the end. That was great!

    ps- my hubby thinks your cute and wants to know why I didnt kidnap you and bring you home with me. Oh dear!

  9. Lori– Thanks! Haha! We'll see. It's funny to see how many page views I got on this sucker and not really many people commented. I'm sure they watched and immediately left thinking, "Somebody get this girl some help!"

    Haha and that is too funny that your hubby said that! I totally want to meet the hubby and kids sometime! 🙂

  10. Sharon's Garden of Book Reviews says:

    Very cute! Don't be jealous – sometimes it rains, and sometimes it pours around here – with books, I mean!

  11. Ha ha, great IMM vlog 🙂 I only got one book this week(but that's quite alright for wallet) and that was Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins.

  12. Hilarious! This definitely brightened my morning.

  13. Sharon–Thanks! 🙂 Hopefully this week is a pouring kind of week for me!

    Ladybug– I still need to get to Mockingjay!

    Nely- Haha I'm glad! 🙂

  14. Thanks for dropping by my blog! Before I Fall is great 🙂

  15. Great vlog 🙂 your books look great. I'm really looking forward to reading Before I fall. Happy reading!

  16. I also enjoyed your vlog – I hope you do many more.

  17. Um, please keep doing more vlogs! That was awesome! More, more, more! I love it and I loved the bloopers at the end!

    I have to say, that author that you showed the signed book of has TERRIBLE penmanship! Someone needs to send that man back to school! LOL! Very exciting that you got a signed copy and got to talk to the author though! 🙂

  18. Carin– LOL thanks 🙂 We'll see! Oh, and it took me 10 minutes to figure out what the heck it said!! And then the light bulb went on as I figured out the one word was Meatloaf! lol

  19. haha, Jamie your IMM is great! I tried doing a vlog once and kept messing up or losing my train of thought. They are not as easy as they look, but yours was definitely entertaining!

  20. Heather– They really aren't easy! Kristi, from the Story Siren, makes it look effortless!!

  21. Great IMM!
    I am looking forward to reading Before I fall, hope you like it!!

  22. That was pretty epic 🙂

  23. Haha you are so cute! Love the vlog, and your top! Best IMM ever! Do more 🙂

  24. Miss Lauren says:

    I agree with everyone else! Best IMM ever!

  25. I liked it!
    Continue doing them! 🙂 haha

  26. OMG you're freaking adorable!!! (ps I got the boot from Twitter! Too many tweets)
