In My Mailbox (17)

Thanks to Kristi at The Story Siren for hosting In My Mailbox every week.

Books Purchased:
I'm currently trying to get caught up with the Otherworld series by Kelley Armstrong so I brought a couple of books in the series Haunted and Broken - I think I still need to buy a couple more but I've got quite a few to keep me going now.  I'm definitely back on a book buying ban until I've managed to reduce my TBR pile a bit - I wonder how long I'll manage to last this time?

Competition Prizes:
  1. They Call Me Dead by Missy Jane from Amanda at Story Wings - this looks fab & I can't wait to read it!
  2. A signed copy of When I Was Joe by Keren David I've been wanting to read this one ever since I read Becky of The Bookette's review so I was really excited to win this when Keren did a Twitter giveaway
  3. Anasi Boys by Neil Gaiman from Sam at Headline - I've never actually read any of Neil Gaiman's books before, although I love the film Stardust, so I'm really looking forward to reading this
  4. Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris and a fab Sookie Stackhouse pen from Jon at Orion Books - again I've been wanting to read the Sookie series for ages but haven't started it yet
  5. Crux by Moira Rogers eBook from Bree (one of the Moira Rogers duet).  This is the first book in the Southern Arcana series which I've heard a lot of fab things about so it's another one I can't wait to read.
I've had such an amazing week this week for giveaways & these are all books I can't wait to read.  All I need to do now is figure out a way to read 5 books a day and I'll have a chance of getting through my TBR pile LOL.

For Review:
I recieved a copy of The Darkest Room by Johan Theorin from Transworld Publishers and it sounds like it's going to be a really creepy thriller and I'm sure I'll enjoy it.

What was in your mailbox this week?

While you're here don't forget to check out my giveaway for The Island by Sarah Singleton - it's international and you don't have to be a follower to enter (although of course I'd love it if you were LOL).  It is open until the 30th April & you can enter by clicking here
