In My Mailbox 7


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

My seventh IMM post - here we go.

Books I received this week.

In The Post:

Angelfire - Courtney Allison Moulton
This is one for the 2011 Debut Author Challenge. I haven't read a debut author for February yet and I don't have long so I better get reading.

The Lord of The Rings - J.R.R. Tolkien
I bought this for a friend but I already gave it to her in the week so it's not in the photo.

Treachery In Death - J.D. Robb
One of my all time favourite series. Read it, loved it and hope to have a review up soon.

Babe In Boyland - Jody Gehrman
I loved Jody Gehrman's previous two YA books Confessions of a Triple Shot Betty and Triple Shot Bettys in Love so when I saw she had a new book out I had to get it. Plus the cover is awesome.

I Am Number Four - Pittacus Lore
The book and the movie are everywhere at the moment so I thought I should check it out.

Love Me To Death - Allison Brennan
Another romantic suspense novel - can't resist.

Kindle:

Low Red Moon - Ivy Devlin
Someone recommended it on their blog, I can't remember who but whoever you are - thanks. I must keep better track.

Life From Scratch - Melissa Ford
Free on amazon.co.uk.
I did better this week not so many book and I did not request anything from netgalley as I already have soooo many I have to read.

Side note: I buy a lot of my books from The Book Depository and they usually come with a free bookmark. There haven't been any bookmarks lately but yesterday along with Babes in Boyland was a shiny new bookmark! Now usually this would not be the cause of excitement and photos but in this case I have had to make an exception. Take a look at the pictures below - the bookmark is part of a new series called Useful Bookmarks, which, you guessed it, provide useful information about various subjects. The one I received yesterday is called Useful Knots and has many different ways to tie a knot. How cool is that! I checked out the website and it shows all the bookmarks you can get - I really really want the Periodic Table one - I had to learn it off by heart in High School but I have totally forgotten it now. I am going to have to buy a lot of books from The Book Depository to get them all.












That's all for now.

  2. I am Number Four is incredible. Angelfire on the other hand, wasn't my cup of tea, but I'm sure you'll enjoy it - almost everyone else did!

    Enjoy your reads!! I'm a new follower, come stop by my blog (and follow if you'd like!) -- www.iceybooks.com/2011/02/in-my-mailbox-21.html

  4. Love the pink bookmark. Looks like I need to place an order soon so I can get one. :D

    Don't you just love the cover for Babe in Boyland?! I totally want that book just based on the cover. And I was hoping to read I am Number Four before the movie came out, but didn't happen. Where does the time go?

    Great haul. Hope you enjoy. :D

  8. I use the Book Depository quite a bit too but I've never had a free bookmark! 0_0

    You've got some great books. Low Red Moon sounds good - I bought that last week, and I am Number 4 is one I want to read too.

  9. Great picks! I read I AM NUMBER FOUR a while ago and didn't like the book much... however, I went and saw the movie yesterday and it was AMAZING. This is one rare case where the movie was way better than the book! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  12. Great haul this week! Of the books you got, I've only read Angelfire and I Am Number Four. I thought Angelfire was amazing, but I may be a little prejudiced considering it was set where I grew up. I Am Number Four wasn't perfect, but it was definitely an interesting read. Hope you enjoy your books!

  17. JD Robb's Eve and Roarke are absolutely always wonderful to read books... Nice selection Sally and now I am going to have to wait and see if any of my many many books from The Book Depository start coming with those cool sounding bookmarks... I have not gotten a free bookmark from them in months....

    My Mailbox contains all the books that have come in since last post in late January..
