In My Mailbox 8

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

My eighth IMM post - here we go.

Books I received this week.

In The Post:

Haven - Kristi Cook
Another book for the 2011 Debut Author Challenge, this ones all about a school for psychics. I may try and read this one for March.

The Mistress House - Leigh Michaels
Lessons in French - Laura Kinsale
I haven't read much historical romance this year so I thought I would buy a couple that were recommended by another book blogger (and no I don't remember who - sorry!).

A Discovery Of Witches - Deborah Harkness
This has been getting some great reviews, I am excited to read it.

Agent 21 - Chris Ryan
I love Chris Ryan's YA novels, they are all action and adventure. I haven't read any of his adult books yet but I may try them later this year.


The Mysterious Lady Law - Robert Appleton
A steampunk mystery - how can I resist.


Girl Wonder - Alexa Martin
The Vampire Dimitri - Colleen Gleason
Mercy - Rebecca Lim

I know, I know I promised myself no more netgalley books until I had read the ones I already have, but seriously no more from now on. I have soooo many to read.

Well would you look at that only five IRL books this week. This is good - I am getting better. I am seriously running out of storage space. I knocked a whole stack of books over when I was putting this weeks books away after taking the picture, that's how bad it's getting.

That's all for now.


  1. Hi, great IMM this week :) I have A Discovery of Witches in my pile of books to read and am looking forward to reading it too!

    Come visit me @ Fictional Fantasy!

  2. A fanstastic pile of books! They all look very interesting. Happy Reading :)

  3. What a fun mailbox this week! Luv it!! You can find mine here:

  4. NetGalley is rather addictive, isn't it? I have several I need to get caught up on. Mercy and Girl Wonder look really interesting.

    I can't wait to read A Discovery of Witches. I am on the very long waiting list for it at the library. I've read mostly positive reviews but a few negative ones too so I look forward to trying it myself.

    I think The Mysterious Lady Law sounds good too. I am developing a liking for steampunk/steampunk romance thanks to Gail Carriger's Parasol Protectorate series and Cassandra Clare's Clockwork Angel. I am planning to read The Iron Duke by Meljean Brooks as well.

  5. I so want to read Haven ! I hope you'll like it !! Enjoy ;)

  6. I can't wait to read Haven, it looks so good! Hope you enjoy it

  7. A Discovery of Witches look HUGE! I've seen it around though and it does look good. Haven is one I've been dying to read for months now. I can't wait to get myself a copy.

    Hope you enjoy all your fab books.

  8. You always seem to get some great books :)
