In My Mailbox (21)

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

Books Purchased:
I impressed myself and managed to stick to my book buying ban this week!  I wonder how long that will continue for LOL.

Library Finds:
After both Jo and Lynsey raved about the Night Huntress series at the UK YA blogger meet up last week I had to order book 1 from the library.  I'm looking forward to trying Halfway to the Grave, Jeaniene Frost is a new author for me but I've heard a lot of great things about this series.

For Review:
  1. I was very excited to receive a copy of The Demon's Covenant by Sarah Rees Brennan and Passing Strange by Daniel Waters from Simon & Schuster for review this week.  I'm already reading both of these series so I'm looking forward to finding out what happens next - thanks S&S!
  2. I'm also looking forward to reading Guardian of the Dead by Karen Healey that I received as part of a book tour arranged by International Book Tours
  3. I'd also like to thank RHCB for sending me a copy of Dido by Adele Geras, I have Adele dropping by to take part in my new Author's Animal Antics feature in a couple of weeks so I'm going to review Dido at the same time and there may even be a giveaway included (hint, hint LOL)
  4. I'm taking part in a book tour for The Moonstone Legacy by Diana de Gunzburg and Tony Wild in June so thank you to Pushkin Press for sending me a review copy of this book.
Won:
  1. I was really excited to win a copy of Rosemary & Rue by Seanan McGuire from Alyssa, Jake & Gregory at Teens Read and Write.  This is book 1 in the October Daye series and I've heard really good things about it, I actually won a copy of book 2 a while ago so this has been on my purchase list and it came in really handy winning a copy as I'm on a buying ban.
  2. I also won a copy of The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E Pearson from Walker Books in a giveaway they did on Twitter.  It looks great & I'm looking forward to reading it.
  3. I was also really happy to win a copy of Night Pleasures by Sherrilyn Kenyon from Stella at Ex Libris.  I now have the first 3 books in the Dark Hunters series in my TBR pile - I've heard so much about this series & I'm looking forward to giving it a try.
What was in your mailbox this week?
