In My Mailbox (23)

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

Books Purchased:
OK I confess, I broke my book buying ban!  Well actually my Dad brought these for me so these don't really count right?  Anyway, I couldn't resist getting The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner & Wintercraft and I'm looking forward to reading them both.

Library Finds:
I didn't get around to posting my mailbox last week so this haul is actually 2 weeks worth but either way I'm quite impressed with my haul :o)
  1. One Foot in the Grave by Jeaniene Frost - I've already read this one so look out for the review tomorrow.  I am absolutely head over heals in love with Bones & can't wait to continue reading this series!!
  2. Blood Promise by Richelle Mead - I only started reading the Vampire Academy series last week & I love it, it's definitely my favorite YA vampire series so I can't wait to start reading this one.
  3. Radiant Shadows by Melissa Marr - I read the first 3 Wicked Lovely books last year before I started blogging so I had planned on re-reading them to review before reading Radiant Shadows but I couldn't resist picking it up when I spotted it in the library
  4. Dangerous Games, The Darkest Kiss & Deadly Desire by Keri Arthur - I'm really enjoying the Riley Jenson series so I thought I'd grab the ones I've not read while I saw them.  There are books in between these that I've not read yet so it might be a while before I get around to reading them but I've reserved the ones I need so hopefully they won't take too long to turn up.
  5. Nauti Boy & Wild Card by Lora Leigh - I can't remember who recommended Lora Leigh to me but I know I've heard good things about her so I reserved the first books from 2 of her different series to give her a try.
  6. Gale Force by Rachel Caine - I really like the Weather Warden series but its obviously popular with my library as I'd reserved it months ago.  I can't wait to read it now I've finally got my hands on it..
For Review:

I've had quite a few eBooks for review this week & I'm looking forward to reading them all!
  1. Comfort Food by Kitty Thomas - Thanks to Kitty for sending me this for review, I finished reading it this morning & really enjoyed it.  I'll have the review posted in a couple of days.
  2. I Married A Demon & I Married A Dragon by Beverly Rae - Thanks to Veronica of Strictly Reviews, my reviews will also be posted on Veronica's blog
  3. Blood & Destiny by Kaye Chambers - Another one from Veronica :o)
  4. Dragonbourne by Chandra Ryan - Thanks again to Veronica!
  5. Astorothare by Stella & Audra Price - Thanks to Stella for sending me this one :o)
I was very excited to win J.A. Saare's blog giveaway of a signed copy of her book Dead, Undead or Somewhere in Between.  Thank you so much Jamie!  I also won a copy of Personal Demon by Kelley Armstrong from the lovely Brooke of Brooke Reviews. I've only read the first 2 books in the Otherworld series but I have quite a few more in my TBR pile so I really should get started on them!
What was in your mailbox this week?


  1. Hey Sarah ~

    Hope you enjoy the story! ;D Glad to hear the book arrived safely.

  2. I love the Vampire Academy series. I am glad you are enjoying them. I thought Blood Promise was fantastic.

    I liked The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner a lot more than I thought I would. I wasn't planning to read it but when it was posted online for free I decided to give it a try and I was pleasantly surprised. I hope you enjoy it too!

  3. Comfort Food has a great cover! Hope you enjoy all your books!x

  4. Blood Promise, Radiant Shadows and Bree Tanne are all amazing. You'll love them!

  5. Great mailbox. I'm sure you are going to have a lot of fun with these books.

    @ Christina - The VA series is fast becoming my favorite YA series :o) Can't wait to read the rest of the books!

    I'd forgotten you can download the Bree Tanner ebook for free - I probably wouldn't have brought it if I'd remembered that but I love the Twilight books so I'm looking forward to reading it :o)

    @ Carly - I really loved Comfort Food, amazing book but definitely not YA! Hope you have a fab week :o)
