In My Mailbox 28

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

Books I received this week.

In The Post:

Sass & Serendipity - Jennifer Ziegler
A modern retelling of Sense and Sensibility - I'm all over it.

Touched By An Alien - Gini Koch
Alien Tango - Gini Koch
I've only ever read a few sci-fi type books and these looked really cute.

Texas Gothic - Rosemary Clement-Moore
Small Town Sinners - Melissa Walker
I have been waiting for these two books for soooo long and now they are finally here!

Forever - Maggie Stiefvater
The series is complete. I plan to read all three next month.

An Affair To Remember - Karen Hawkins

I do love a good historical romance.


The Sweet Gum Tree - Katherine Allred

Undeniably Yours -
Shannon Stacey

Crave - Melinda Metz and Laura J. Burns

For the Love of Charley - Katherine Allred


Ashfall - Mike Mullin

The Iron Knight - Julie Kagawa
Haven't read the first three books yet but I do own them and plan to read them soon.

In Total Surrender
- Anne Mallory

Simon & Schuster Galley Grab:

Drink, Slay, Love - Sarah Beth Durst
Never read anything by SBD before but this looks like fun.

Sacrifice -
Melinda Metz and Laura J. Burns
Had to buy the first book in the series (Crave - see above) when I saw this one on the GG.

You have no idea how badly I wanted to read all the books I got this week but alas I couldn't. It's Netgalley month and I am taking it very seriously. I am on my 7th Netgalley book so far and I hope to read double that by the end of July. Although I got slightly distracted by Harry Potter this week - I managed to watch all seven movies in preparation for tomorrow. Yes that's right at 18:15 I will be watching the final movie! I am currently alternating between absolute excitement at finally getting to see it and true sadness that it will all be over. Either way I am going to cry buckets.

Be sure to enter my six month blogoversary giveaway to win the book of your choice from The Book Depository. All the info here.

That's all for now.
