In My Mailbox (25)

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

Books Purchased / Given:
I had an amazing this week - all of these books & I only actually brought one of them!
  1. Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning - this was my naughty ebay purchase and came highly recommended.  I'm looking forward to starting this series.
  2. Unseen Academicals by Terry Pratchett - my Dad and I are both massive Terry Pratchett fans so when he saw the new book on a 2 for 1 deal he picked us both up a copy
  3. First 12 books in the Anita Blake series by Laurell K Hamilton - I happened to mention this series to my friend and her husband who got fed up with the series gave me the first 12 books.  I couldn't believe it when he dropped them around for me - it was like Christmas!  I've heard mixed things about this series, my friend got fed up after book 12 so didn't read any further but I'm still keen to give them a try.
  4. First 2 books in the Meredith Gentry series by Laurell K Hamilton - These were an extra bonus from the same friend who gave me the Anita Blake books.  I hadn't actually heard of this series before so I'm curious to find out what it's about.
Library Finds:

I was hoping that my reservation for the third book in the Riley Jenson series would come in this week but it hasn't so hopefully I won't have to wait to much longer.  Other than that I'm trying not to get any other library books at the moment - I really need to try and read through the ones I've alread got!

For Review:
  1. Trash by Andy Mulligan - Thanks to RHCB for sending this one for review.  I hadn't heard of it before but the description sounds really good.
  2. Angel by L.A. Weatherly - Thanks to Usborne for sending this one - it is the first book in a new trilogy and it looks amazing!  I can't wait to start it but since it isn't out until October I'll probably wait until a bit closer to the release date before I review it.
  3. Shade by Jerry Smith-Ready - Thanks to Simon & Schuster, I've heard so many good things about this on the blogosphere that I can't wait to dig in & read it.
  4. Claire de Lune by Christine Johnson - Thanks again to Simon & Schuster - this is another one I've heard a lot about & am really looking forward to reading!
  5. Best Friends Forever by Jennifer Weiner - This was another surprise from Simon & Schuster, I've actually read another book by Jennifer Weiner a few years ago & really enjoyed it so I'm sure this will be a good summer read.
  6. Dear Dylan by Siobhan Curham - Thanks so much to Siobhan for sending me this for review, it is a novel written entirely in the form of emails so I'm very curious to see how the story comes across.
  7. Ex Appeal by Cari Quinn - Thanks to Cari for sending me a copy of her newest ebook.  I've heard fab things about the first book in this series & am looking forward to reading this.

  6. Wow, great haul, Sarah! I actually received Flirt and the one that follows it in the Anita Blake series. If you don't have them, I could give them to you the next time we see each other, if you like? (They're both hardback, so I think posting them would cost a bomb, lol).

    I've seen the Dear Dylan novel around quite a bit, and I'm really intrigued! I love the whole email idea. I read a real young YA hen I was younger that was letters between a young teen and an agony aunt. I loved the idea!
