In My Mailbox (18)

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

Books Purchased:
I have been sticking to my book buying ban but I did receive a book I'd already ordered Vampire Diaries The Return Shadow Souls by L.J. Smith

Library Finds:
I had a great trip to the library this week, I only went in to collect Penumbra by Keri Arthur (the last book in the Spook Squad series) but ended up with time to kill so I did a little browsing.  I managed to find the first 3 books in the Mercy Thompson Series by Patricia Briggs and the first 5 books in the Immortals After Dark Series by Kresley Cole - I've heard great things about both of these series so I'm looking forward to getting started!

Competition Prizes:
I love this House of Night tote bag that I won from Atom Books in a giveaway they had on Twitter, it's a fab series that I'm hoping to re-read & review soon.  I also won a copy of ebook Payback in Wayback by Lynda Coker from the Blogmania giveaway at Between The Pages - I love a good cowboy story so I'm looking forward to reading this one!

For Review:
I recieved a paperback copy of Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick from Simon & Schuster, I've already reviewed the hardback here but was planning on buying the paperback so I was very happy to have it sent to me.  I'll be doing a giveaway for my hardback copy very soon.
I was also really excited when Laura Stamps sent me the 3rd volume of her novel A Vampire's Kiss for review - I've really enjoyed the first 2 volumes and am looking forward to finding out what happens next.

What was in your mailbox this week?

  1. Very nice and you've also encouraged me to dust off my library card and have a scout around the local library!

  2. You did have some good luck at the library! I've been curious about the Mercy Thompson books for awhile but haven't read them. The Vampire Diaries book has a really nice cover. I hope you enjoy your books!

  8. @ Lynsey - I'd definitely recommend giving your local library a try. If they don't have the book you want you can order it for about 25p which is great while I'm on such a tight budget!

    @ Christina - I've heard a lot of good things about the Mercy series so I'm looking forward to giving it a try. I also really need to re-read the Vampire Diaries series as I've not read books 5 & 6 yet LOL

    @ Laurie - Glad to hear you like the Kresley Cole series - I can't wait to start that one, it's another one I've heard so many good things about :o) I just did a google search to find the pic but it does look a lot like my cat LOL

    @ Sarah - LMAO at your word verification!! I do have a bit of a vamp / were addiction LOL :o)

    @ Rhiana - I love my library! Now that you can renew books online it makes it really easy to make sure you don't end up paying fines.

    @ Prophecygirl - I'm looking forward to re-reading the first 4 Vampire Diaries books so I can read the 2 new ones :o) I really want to start watching the TV show too but I've been recording it ready for when I've read the books LOL

    @ Mel - LOL looks like you're going to have to get another copy of Hush, Hush - it has the first chapter of Crescendo in it hehe. I'm a nightmare when I go in the library - I was trying to get all my books returned so I could start working through my TBR pile but I just couldn't resist picking them all up LOL :o)
