In My Mailbox (22)

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

Books Purchased:

This is the second week I've managed to stick to my book buying ban - will I be able to keep it up for another week?

Library Finds:
I'm determined not to look around the library until I've returned some of the books I already have but I'd reserved book 3 in the GhostWalkers series - Night Game by Christine Feehan.  I'm really enjoying this series so I'm looking forward to reading this one!

For Review:
I had a busy week for review books this week but I got a great selection & I can't wait to start reading them all!
  1. I received the ARC of Low Red Moon by Ivy Devlyn that I'm organising a UK book tour for (click here to sign up).  I believe the UK release date for this is February 2011 but it will be out in the US in September.  I will be reading this one ASAP & then it will be being sent off on the UK tour.  Thanks to Ivy for sending this one.
  2. Thanks to RHCB for the review copies of Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma and Tall Stories by Candy Gourlay - these both look like great reads!
  3. Thanks to Hodder & Stoughton for the ARC of My Name is Memory by Ann Brashares - this is described as having the power and intensity of The Time Traveller's Wife and the passion of Twilight & I can't wait to read it.
  4. I'd also like to thank Devyn Quinn for sending me an ebook ARC of Siren's Call - this comes out in paperback in the UK on the 28th October.  I've not read anything with mermaids in before so I'm looking forward to giving this a try!
  5. I'm looking forward to reading the 3 novellas Kept, Claimed & Mated that make up the first book of the Preternaturals series by Zoe Winters.  Kept can be downloaded for free from Zoe's website here and Claimed is also available.  The 3 novellas will be released as 1 book called Blood Lust soon.  Thank you Zoe for sending me these novellas for review - I can't wait to start this series!
Won:
I was very excited to win an ARC copy of The Reapers are the Angels by Alden Bell from publisher Tor in a Twitter giveaway.  This is out in the UK in September & looks like it's going to be a great read.

What was in your mailbox this week?

  6. @ Sparklybearsy - LOL we get to be virgins again hehehe :o) I'm looking forward to reading Siren's Call & can't wait to see what you think of it too!

    @ Prophecygirl - I still haven't read TTTW, it's on my TBR pile but I'm really going to have to make sure I get to it soon! I love the sound of My Name is Memory and am really looking forward to reading it :o)

    @ Christina - I'm looking forward to reading both of those, they look like they're going to be great reads :o) I'll get my reviews posted asap for you LOL

    @ Rhiana - I'm so excited to read Low Red Moon & was really thrilled when Ivy offered to send a copy for a UK tour! Thanks so much for signing up :o) I'm going to try and get it read this week so I can send it on it's way!

    @ So Many Books - Hi Sophie, I've not read TTTW but I've heard great things about it & I love Twilight! I really hope that My Name is Memory hasn't been over-hyped by comparing it to those 2 books but it looks great so I have very high hopes for it :o) Fingers crossed we both enjoy it!
