In My Mailbox #1

In my mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren.

Welcome to my first vlog! Here's some things you should know:

  1. Usually, I'm much more handsome.
  2. My teeth aren't as big as they seem here.
  3. I speak better English when I don't record myself with a crappy camera that is being balanced on my computer.
I mention Amanda and Sharon. I also mention Eclipse, Perfect Timing, Sons and Lovers, Wicked, The Picture of Dorian Grey and Bikini. Most importantly, I mention Amanda's GLBT challenge. Go join!


Amanda said...

You are awesome! :D I loved this, I love vlogs, and your teeth don't look big at all. You did a great job, and I think I need to go look into Oscar Wilde's short stories. I didn't realize he'd written short stories. I've read Dorian Gray and I want to read some of his plays, but now the short stories will get put onmy list, too!

Awesome vlog!!! It's so cute! Isnt't the Portrait of Diran Grey AWESOME! And I love your cover you have there. . .
And I'm with Amanda, your teeth don't look big at all.
In my opinion, vlogging is defo something you should keep up. :-)

Nikola said...

Thanks guys, you're both so nice! :)

Aimee said...

Man, I really need to do a Vlog. yours was awesome - and hiarious: "Oh dad, he's so clueless".

Love it <3


Andrea [Buried In Books] said...

I really enjoyed this! I think you should definitely keep vlogging! :D

Dannie said...

Your teeth don't look big at all. And, hey, it can't be worse then my past endeavers in the vlogging community *shudder*

I love the cover you have for Dorian Grey! I have an old worn-out Barnes and Noble's classics one.

Hahaha That was awesome! You were definitely more on the cute side rather than obnoxious. I enjoyed it. Keep it up. And it was great to put a face and voice with the blog. I feel like I know who you are now.

P.S. - I love the new blog look, the stripes are great!

Ryan G said...

The Vlog was great and the teeth are not big at all. I also have to say I love the new blog background.

The Story Siren said...

You are so CUTE! You must do more vlogs! I loved seeing your books.... you need to convert to team Jacob!

I hope you enjoy them all! Happy reading!

Jenny said...

You are so funny! (One of your comments near the beginning made me laugh out loud) haha. Great vlog! And I didn't even realize English wasn't your first language except that you wrote that disclaimer!

Melissa (My World) said...

Great Vlog! I am still to nervous to try to do one of these. I am glad you could do a vlog, it seems so personable. I like that.

I understand the comments. I try to leave comments everywhere, and a little more than the generic comment. I have been trying to leave comments when I visit, but at times I start to run out of blog time so they don't always get left. BUT, I love commenting and getting comments!

Vivienne said...

What a fantastic vlog. You did so well and you look lovely. You were made for vlogs. Some great books to read. I am going to join the GBLT challenge as well. I am team Edward and going to see New Moon on Friday. Can't wait!

miss cindy :) said...

What? I am so Team Jacob :) :) Actually that's not true...I'm Team Jacob/Edward. Great first vlog.

I am reading The Picture of Dorian Gray right now :) Its really good so far!

Nikola said...

Aimee, please do a vlog! They're so much fun!

Andrea, thanks!

Dannie, the edition I gave is Signet Classics, and I know for a fact it has also been published in US and Canada.

Wendy, I *was* aiming for cute, but you never know. :)

Ryan, glad you like the template!

The Story Siren, what an honor to hear from the very creator of In My Mailbox. And no, I will NEVER convert to Team Jacob! :)

Jenny, thanks!

Melissa, please do one, would love to watch it!

Vivienne, awesome you chose to join the GLBT challenge, I think it's gonna be awesome!

Cindy, you need to convert to Team Edward! :)

jill mansell said...

Nikola! Excellent vlog - you did a great job! Hope you like the rest of my book...I shall nervously await your verdict...

Alexandra said...

Tips for the GLBT challenge if you like gothic stories. Lost Souls, Drawing Blood and Exquisite Corpse by Poppy Z. Brite. The last one is really good! (warning: contains strong scenes!)
p.s good vlog!

Tiina said...

Great vlog! I know, I would also like to start reading the books I chose for the GLBT challenge already, one of which is actually going to be The Picture of Dorian Gray.
Looking forward to watching more of your vlogs!


Nikola said...

Thanks for the tip, Alexandra! And Tiina, I'm sure you'll love Dorian - it's a masterpiece!

Jenn-ay said...

You are adorable!!! I enjoyed it. YAY TEAM EDWARD!!! And your english is wonderful : )

Loved it!!!

Melissa said...

Just discovered your it!

You definitely need to keep doing vlogs.

Looking forward to visiting, and commenting.


CallMeKayla said...

LOL I loved your little sign off, it had me gigling. :)
ok so,
1) you're cute so don't worry
2) you're teeth don't look big so no worries there either
and 3) your accent is kinda adorable.

LOL. Ok, that being said, I like vlogs, I feel like they are more personal and like you are actually interacting with the blogger. (I need to do them myself but I'm just so darn busy lately!) But, yeah, good job, it was entertaining. The only think I can say is that you might want to be a tad more prepared on what you want to say (maybe make a bullet noted list sitting next to you) so you don't have to keep saying "umm". I know, I say it a lot too, so it's not really a critizism (yes, i can't spell at all LOL). But, it would probably keep more watchers and cut back on the time limit of your vlogs. :)
