In My Mailbox 15
In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren.
My fifteenth IMM post - here we go.
Books I received this week.
In The Post:
The Year Nick McGowan Came to Stay - Rebecca Sparrow
Read it. Loved it enough to buy another of her books.
City of Fallen Angels - Cassandra Clare
So I have had this book since Monday and have felt no overwhelming urge to read it which means I am going to wait a couple of years for the other two books to come out. I did it with the first trilogy I can do it with the second. It makes it easier knowing that CoFA ends with a cliff hanger - I really don't want to get in to all of that without having the next book to read.
The Summer of You - Kate Noble
Party - Tom Leveen
Chasing Fire - Nora Roberts
I looove Nora Roberts book sooooo much. This one was pretty great.
Side Jobs - Jim Butcher
Finally!!! I can now read the short story that takes place straight after Changes in preparation for Ghost Story which can't come out soon enough. Oh how I love Harry Dresden.
The Girl Most Likely - Rebecca Sparrow
At The Shops:
Fallen - Lauren Kate
Torment - Lauren Kate
Wanted to get these books for ages and when I saw them in Waterstones I couldn't resist. I am not going to read them until just before Passion comes out.
The Lost Guide to Life and Love - Sharon Griffiths
Unholy Magic - Stacia Kane
Second book in the series - really must get the first.
The Crimson Petal and the White - Michel Faber
The BBC have just made it into a TV show figured I would check out the book.
True North - Marie Force
Everyone Loves A Hero: ...and that's the problem - Marie Force
The Trouble With J.J. - Tami Hoag
I loved Tami Hoag's books back when I was younger. This is one of the ones I haven't read yet.
Saving Grace - Norah Wilson
The Marriage Bed - Laura Lee Guhrke
Almost Perfect - Julie Ortolon
Too Perfect - Julie Ortolon
13 Little Blue Envelopes - Maureen Johnson
Free on amazon.co.uk
Wherever You Go - Heather Davis
The Magnolia League - Katie Crouch
Putting Makeup on Dead People - Jen Violi
Queen of the Dead - Stacey Kade
The Near Witch - Victoria Schwab
Phoenix Rising - Pip Ballantine & Tee Morris
I requested all of these ages ago and they finally came through. I am not going to request anymore until I have cleared some of the backlog (really I'm not).
Seriously 26 books!!! What is wrong with me. I would have to quit my job to keep up with all the books I buy (although that doesn't seem like a bad idea). I am officially cutting back (that book I ordered earlier doesn't count - it was before I realised the depth my crazy had reached). I don't think getting a kindle was a good idea because my brain doesn't seem to realise that just because I can't hold the book in my hand doesn't mean it didn't cost money. Stupid amazon one-click rubbish.
That's all for now.
