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. @ Laurie - Thanks :o) Hope you have a great week!

    @ J.A. Saare - I can't wait to read it Jamie! It looks fab :o) Thanks so much for holding the giveaway!

    @ 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)

    @ Sophie - Those 3 are all ones I'm really looking forward to reading :o) All from great series!
