In My Mailbox 19

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

Books I received this week.

In The Post:

The Ghost and the Goth - Stacey Kade

I have been meaning to get this for ages and now I have the second book from netgalley I thought it was time.

The Lucky Kind - Alyssa B. Sheinmel
I have been looking forward to this book for months as I loved her first novel soooo much.

Wolves, Boys, and Other Things That Might Kill Me - Kristen Chandler
Another book I have been wanting to get for ages.

Something Like Fate - Susane Colasanti
Her new book just came out and I realised I hadn't got her last one so I had to get it.

Twenty Times A Lady - Karyn Bosnak
It's just been made into a movie and it looks hilarious so I thought I would give the book a try first.
Recommendation from a fellow blogger - ames @ Thrifty Reader.

Hard Bitten - Chloe Neill
The fourth book in the Chicagoland Vampire series. I have the first three in my tbr pile. I think I will wait until the fifth book comes out in November before reading them.

The Mammoth Hunter - Jean M Auel
The Plains of Passage - Jean M Auel

Not pictured as they were bought for a friend.

Well I hope you all had a better week than me because mine sucked. Work has been pretty hard and I have been exhausted this entire week. All I managed to do in terms of reading was finish up Moonglass which is so not like me, I can usually read two or three books a week but I just haven't had the energy. I have however watched the first 20 episodes of The West Wing, one of my all time favourite shows so that's cheered me up some. Here's hoping next week will be better.

That's all for now.


  1. VERY VERY smart to read Hard Bitten--and the rest of the series closer to November! The end of Hard Bitten is really intense, so I highly advise waiting til you have Drink Deep to read afterwards, because now I am in agony waiting for it! :)

    My IMM goes up tomorrow! Be sure to stop by!

    Jessica@a GREAT read

  2. Lol thanks Jessica. I can't stand the waiting so I always try to have a few books in the series before starting.

  3. What did you think of Moonglass Sally? I was thinking of buying it but will need to order it as I can't see it in the bookshops in the UK.

  4. HI Sally, I'm with you on the series..always good to have a few books before starting. We've been blessed in Australia with the mass release of The Morganville Vampire Series (Rachel Caine). The first 9 books were released in quick succession over 3 months!!! Hope you have a better week next week!
    Cheers Marissa

  5. I really liked Something Like Fate! I'm looking forward to reading The Ghost and the Goth. Enjoy!!

  6. The ghost and the goth looks like a really fun read. Hope you're enjoying your books :)

  7. Hope you have a better week! Still, a good IMM, I'm excited to finish reading the Chicagoland vampire series as well!

    Here’s My IMM!

  8. I definitely want to read The Ghost and the Goth and Something like Fate soon! They sound so great.
    Awesome books for you this week! :)

    (My IMM)

  9. I LOVED Ghost and the Goth when I read it last year and can't wait for the sequel now in June. I've also just ordered Wolves, Boys and Other Things as I thought it looked really good. Hope you have a better week next week. x

  10. really nice books! i wont read the girl and the goth, for some reason most books portray goths as moody and antisocial (so not! i am so proof!) lol. =) i will read your review however.

  11. Awesome mailbox !! I look forward to have your opinion on The Ghost and the Goth :it sounds really good !!
    Happy reading ;)

  12. great books this week! happy reading!

  13. I'm so desperate to get my hands on Hard Bitten but none of the bookstores by me have it yet even though it's supposed to be out by now. So I keep waiting and waiting...

    Anyways, happy reading and enjoy your new novels! :)

  14. The ghost and the goth sounds like fun. Happy reading!

  15. Wow, those look great. I haven't read any of them yet, so I look forward to hearing what you think of them!

  16. I really want to read the Ghost and the Goth, and SOmething Like Fate - that cover just makes me a little sad! I guess I feel for the girl whos' got her arm around I have seen Hard Butten everywhere! I hope it's as good as the hype!

    Happy reading on all of your books, looks like some great ones for sure this week! Thanks for dropping by my blog too!

  17. Oo You got Chloe Neill, I want to read her books. Chicagoland Vampires sound great series. I like a series where I can read a mass of the books in one week. Nearly through The Morganville Vampires. I will be putting part 3 of Rachel Caine Q & A's up in half hour or so. Youtube is just doing its thing processing them at moment.
    Nice lot of books.


  18. I've wanted to read Something Like Fate for soooo long, but I keep on forgetting it. Same old story: So many books, so little time :-)

    Happy reading!

  19. Great haul this week! I really enjoyed Ghost and the Goth, and am looking forward to the sequel. Enjoy your books :)

  20. I think the only one I recognize is Ghost and the Goth... hope you enjoy your books! :)
