In My Mailbox #22

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren where can share the books they bought, borrowed or received throughout the week. For more info on just what it is and how to participate, head here.

Hi everyone!
As I'm sure you've noticed I haven't been around much lately and therefore haven't been participating in IMM....well, I'm back! And I've accumulated quite a few books. Really, I need to stop buying them. I'm broke, but I still manage somehow, lol.
Here's what I've gotten the past 3 weeks.....

I Bought:

~Warped by Maurissa Guibord: This is a standalone, debut by Maurissa Guibord and I have two words for you....Unicorn Tapestry. I'm am actually a Team Zombie, but I do love Unicorns and this looks ever so cute.

~Isle of Night by Veronica Wolff: This is the first book in the new The Watchers series and it looks pretty good. It's about vampires and a training academy and more....

~The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan: This is the 2nd book in the Heroes of Olympus series. It's a spin-off of Percy Jackson and I have actually read both the first one and this one, even though I'm a bit behind in my reviews and OMG! Is this good or what! Honestly, I think it might be BETTER than PJ and I didn't think that was possible. Review to come.

~Prophecy of the Sisters by Michelle Zink: This is the first book in the Prophecy of the Sisters. I've been meaning to read this for a while, seeing as so many people love it, but haven't gotten around for it. When I saw it fr under $5 at BD, I had to snap it up!

~Department Nineteen by Will Hill: This is the first Department 19 novel and to be honest I don't really know what it's about. I bought this on a whim from Kmart when I saw it for $3. It's about vampires and action and centers on a male protagonist. Hope it's okay.

~If I Die by Rachel Vincent: This is the 5th Soul Screamers book and I'm really looking forward to it. My mum actually bought me this for my birthday when she saw me reading the 4th and I'm looking forward to reading it.

For Review:

~From Bloomsbury Australia:
Bleeding Hearts by Alyxandra Harvey: This is the 4th Drake Chronicles book. I really love this series and have already devoured this book. See my review here!
-Thanks so much to Bloomsbury for sending me a copy!

~From Harper Collins Australia:
Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon: This is Fallon's debut novel and first in her new Carrier Trilogy. I've heard mixed things about it, but am generally looking forward to reading it.
-Thank-you to Lara from sending me a copy of this!

~From Harlequin Australia:
My Soul to Steal by Rachel Vincent: This is the #4 book in the Soul Screamers series. I really like this series, so I have no idea how I managed to fall behind. I've already read this and it was pretty good. Review to come.

~The Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa: SQUEEEE! I was so excited to get this book. This is the fourth and final Iron Fey book featuring Ash. I simply adore this series and am heartbroken to see it ending, but am still anticipating a brilliant read. Gonna start this real soon!

~Touch of Power by Maria V. Snyder: This is the first book in Maria's new Healer series. I love Maria--her Study series is one of my all time faves and am really excited to have gotten an ARC of this. It's gonna be epic, I can tell.

That's it for me!
What did you get in your mailbox?


  1. Good book haul! The Iron Knight is such a good book. I can't wait for these reviews. Cheers!

  2. Awesome haul! TIK was simply FANTASTIC <3 You'll love Ash + Puck (or in my case...Ash even more!) I really have to finish the Soul Screamers series...I got halfway through the first book, then stopped since I had to return it to the library :( It does sound like an amazing series though!

  3. I already love Ash Shirley, but I'm sure I'll love him even more in this book.
    Definitely read the rest of Soul Screamers. It's a terrific series!

  4. Great haul! I have to get Carrier of The Mark as well soon the reviews have mostly been very good!

    Xpresso Reads

  5. I'd already read Carrier of the Mark (need to catch up with reviews) and it was good, but don't expect anything overly different.
