In My Mailbox 9

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

My ninth IMM post - here we go.

Books I received this week.

In The Post:

Deadly Heat - Cynthia Eden
Deadly Lies - Cynthia Eden
I read the first book in the Deadly series a few weeks ago, it was pretty good so I decided to get the other two. You can read my review of Deadly Fear here.

This Side of the Grave - Jeaniene Frost
Read it. Loved it. Reviewed it here.

Falling Under - Gwen Heyes
Love the cover, love the synopsis. Looking forward to reading it.

Infinity - Sherrilyn Kenyon
I saw this one ages ago but didn't buy it now the second book in the series is coming out soon so I though it was time to get it.

City of Ashes - Cassandra Clare
City of Glass - Cassandra Clare
As you probably all know the fourth book in the Mortal Instruments series comes out next month, I want to get it and read it along with everyone else. However I have not read the first three, so I decided to join the MI re-read challenge (although it would just be a read challenge for me) which would give me that added incentive to read them all before the end of the month. I bought City of Bones (which I am reading right now) a few years ago so I just had to buy the other two.

Tortall and Other Lands: A Collection of Tales - Tamora Pierce
Oh Tamora Pierce how I love your books. When will the final book in the Beka Copper series be out? This will have to tide me over until then, I will have to read it very slowly.

Raising Demons - Rachel Hawkins
AKA Demonglass to all you non-UK readers. It really needs no explanation

Playing Hurt - Holly Schindler
Loved her first novel A Blue So Dark and her second one sounds even better.

My Mum loves the Daisy Dalrymple novels so I got these for her.

At The Shops:

The Book Of Tomorrow - Cecelia Ahern
The Two Pearls of Wisdom - Alison Goodman
I have been working so much lately that haven't actually been out shopping at all this year. But I got out of work early on Monday and took a quick trip into town and of course I couldn't come home without a couple of books.

For Review:

Dark Mirror - M.J. Putney
Courtesy of Sarah Goldstein at St. Martin's Press.
My very first in real life review book. The lovely Sarah emailed me a few weeks back asking if I would like to review this book of course I said yes and here it is. Apart from requesting on netgalley I don't actively ask for review books - not really my style - but of course if someone asks I will not say no.


Darcy's Voyage (Pride & Prejudice Continues) - Kara Louise
I love Pride and Prejudice stories, whether they be alternatives or continuations or modern re-tellings - I will read them all. This was free on amazon this week so I thought why not.


Long Gone - Alafair Burke
To be fair I requested this before my self-imposed netgalley ban.

Spell Bound - Kelley Armstrong

I know I have a netgalley ban going on but you have to understand it's Kelley Armstrong - one of my all time favourite authors!!! I couldn't resist. And to be honest I didn't think my request would actually be accepted as I am a fairly new blogger and I still get turned down for other books. I got so excited when I got the email though - I can't wait to read it.


The Threads pack at The Beaucoup Review.
Thanks Ria!

Which includes:

Threads by Sophia Bennett, black nail varnish, two book plates and a very cute card Ria wrote to me.

Oh dear I appear to have gone a bit crazy with the book buying lately - it's my one vice I swear.
That's all for now.

  17. Thanks for visiting my mailbox and nice blog. LHC is one of my favorite books. If it's on ur TBR list I suggest readinging it next5. It's fantastic.

  18. Such nice books! I loved Tortall and Other Lands. There is an excerpt in the back for the next Beka Cooper book too.

    Infinity was OK. It is enriched by reading her adult series.

    Happy reading!

  19. Great books! I really like the MI books and I hope you enjoy them. I liked Dark Mirror as well and am curious to see what you think of it. I have a copy of the Tortall stories on its way to me, but it hasn't arrived yet and I'm impatient for it! Here's what I got this week. Happy reading!

  20. Good haul this week Sally!!

  26. Woo! Mortal Instruments! Hope you love them as much as the rest of us. Can't wait to read Raising Demons. Don't know why they need to change the name though. So silly. And I'm not really a fan of that cover compared to Hex Hall's cover (UK).

  27. Fab reads! I really want to read Infinity and the Cassandra Clare books.

    Brush Up On Your Reading

  35. Tamora Pierce is one of those authors that I've always heard good things about, but never read. I think I'll need to get on that. Looks like you're in for a good few weeks of reading. :)

  36. You had a great week!! I can;t stop buying books either!

    New follower!


  37. I don't see Spellbound on Netgalley though....:( Anyway, enjoy reading and you sure got a nice stack of books there!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  38. Hi! you had a great week! I try to stay out of the book stores as I can't walk out without at least five books :). What Mortal Instrument reread group are you referring to? I still have to read Clockwork Angel before it the fourth book comes out. Happy Reading!
