In My Mailbox 1

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren.

So here goes my first IMM post - I hope they don't all take as long as this one did.

Books I got this week.

In The Post:

Shadow Kiss - Richelle Mead
Blood Promise - Richelle Mead
Spirit Bound - Richelle Mead
Last Sacrifice - Richelle Mead
The last book of 2010 that I read was the first in the Vampire Academy series and I have to say it was a great start. I have already begun to read Frostbite, the second book in the series and I wanted to make sure I had the rest of them so there would be no waiting around if I wanted to read them all in one go.

Hold Me Closer, Necromancer - Lish McBride
I love the title of this book and the description sounds even better.
The Lady Most Likely...: A Novel In Three Parts - Julia Quinn, Eloisa James, Connie Brockway
I like both Julia Quinn and Eloisa James historical romance so I am hoping this will be a good read.

Paranormalcy - Kiersten White
My first book for the 2011 Debut Author Challenge. Review already up.

My Love Lies Bleeding - Alyxandra Harvey
Out For Blood - Alyxandra Harvey
Blood Feud - Alyxandra Harvey
A vampire series recommended by Kristi from The Story Siren, looking forward to reading them.

Hexbound - Chloe Neill
I have the first novel in this series Firespell but I have yet to read it, hopefully having the second will give me an incentive.

Love And Other Impossible Pursuits - Ayelet Walman
This has been made into a movie staring Natalie Portman - I like to read the books before I see the movies - this usually means I am disappointed in the movies but oh well.

Kiki Strike: Inside The Shadow City - Kirsten Miller
Kiki Strike: The Empress's Tomb - Kirsten Miller
Looks like a cute series recommended by Leila from Bookshelves of Doom.

Nightshade - Andrea Cremer
I'm not really a werewolf person but loads of bloggers are recommending it so I'll give it a go.

You Against Me - Jenny Downham
I loved her previous book Before I Die so I hope this will be just as good.

Fall For Anything - Courtney Summers
I loved her first novel Cracked Up To Be. I have her second novel, Some Girls Are in my TBR pile and can't wait to read her third.

Nevermore - Kelly Creagh
Beautiful cover and it sounds like a great story.

Across The Universe - Beth Revis
My second book for the 2011 Debut Author Challenge. But I think I will wait until next month to read it as I have already read one for this month and I want to spread them out through out the year.

The Lonely Hearts Club - Elizabeth Eulberg
Elizabeth Eulberg has a new novel out called Prom and Prejudice that sounds really great - I love Pride and Prejudice and all things associated - but I figured I should read her first book first to see if I like her style.

My Soul To Take - Rachel Vincent
The start of a new series and another book for the 2011 Debut Author Challenge. Maybe March.

XVI - Julia Karr
A 2011 debut dystopian novel. I am not a fan of dystopian novels as they all seem to be about pretty bleak miserable futures but these books are everywhere now so I had better start giving some of them a go.
Angel's Blood - Nalini Singh
It seems that everyone loves Nalini Singh so I thought I would try one of her books.

Already have paperback copies but I wanted to re-read them on my Knidle.
Read a review on the Hobbitsies blog and I couldn't resist.

Little Women - Louisa May Alcott
One of my favourite books and I got it free on amazon.

Fatal Affair - Marie Force
Fatal Justice - Marie Force
Sounded like a good suspense series looking forward to reading them.

Wish - Alexandra Bullen
Free on amazon.

Moonlight - Rachel Hawthorne
Recommended by The Story Siren.

I will be reviewing all the books I get from netgalley on my blog in the coming months.
I, Emma Freke - Elizabeth Atkinson
Dead Is Not An Option - Marlena Perez
The Vespertine - Saundra Mitchell
Always A Witch - Carolyn MacCullough
Whisper Falls - Toni Blake
Yeah OK I went a little overboard in the past few weeks it won't usually be like this but what with starting the new blog and getting my Kindle I just had to get a few books.

That's all for now.


  1. you really did get a lot! I want to read Falling in Love with English Boys...and many of the others. lol

    My first post for my blog, Let's Get Beyond Tolerance, is up if you wanna stop by!!


  2. Thanks for the comments!!! Yep I have a bit of an addiction where books are concerned but trust me I am gonna rein it in from now on. Check back next Sunday see how I do.

  3. There are weeks when we ALL go overboard! I think that the VA series will be the next one I get for my Not-So-Bebe-Girl Autumn (right now, she's in the midst of the House of Night series that she got for Christmas). I'm not going to comment on ALL of the great reads you have, but .. Paranormalcy ... everyone seems to love it. Nightshade - seems to be a love it or bleh! book from the reviews, although it is still on my to-buy list! Enjoy all of the wonderful reads!
