In My Mailbox #17

Welcome to this weeks In My Mailbox!

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren where bloggers 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

Alright, so I've been sooooo busy and I actually haven't participated in IMM in about 3 weeks. I have a few books to share with you today, so lets begin shall we....

I bought:

Bloodlines by Richelle Mead: This is the first book in the new Bloodlines series, a spin off of Meads Vampire Academy and one of my all time faves. I've been dying for this book and was so happy to get myself a copy.

Twisted by Gena Showalter: This is the 3rd Intertwined book and I love this series so I'm dying to dive straight into it.

Lord of the Vampires by Gena Showalter: This is the first book in the new Royal House of Shadows series which is a collaboration between 4 different authors, each who will write a book in the series. Looks really exciting and I simply love Gena.

Midnight Rising by Lara Adrian: This is the 5th Midnight Breed book and I've been waiting for it to come so I can continue on with the series.

Ashes of Midnight by Lara Adrian: Book #6 in the Midnight Breed series.

Shades of Midnight by Lara Adrian: Book #7 in the Midnight Breed series.

Deeper Than Midnight by Lara Adrian: Book #9 in the Midnight Breed series

Taken by Midnight by Lara Adrian: Book #8 in the Midnight Breed series.

For Review:

Saving June by Hannah Harrington: I hadn't heard anything about this book when it turned up in my mailbox, but it actually sounds like a sweet tale so I may give it a go. Thanks to Harlequin for this one.

The Girl in the Steel Corset by Kady Cross: This is the first book in the new Steampunk Chronicles and it's been raved about a lot in recent months so I look forward to reading it. Again thanks goes to Harlequin!

The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter: This is the first book in Ms. Carter's Goddess Test series and I have actually read this before on Netgalley, but I didn't have my own copy so I was so excited when Harlequin sent me this. In celebration, I've posted my review here.

Fateful by Claudia Gray: This is a stand alone novel that I've been dying to get my hands on! It's set in 1912 and it the book takes place on the Titanic. The Titanic! How cool is that?!? Cannot wait to read this! Thanks so much to HarperCollins for sending me a copy to read.

I won:

Tyger Tyger by Kersten Hamilton: Book #1 in the Goblin Wars series. I won this book thanks to Jess over at She Known As Jess--- thanks a bunch Jess, I'm really looking forward to this one. It sounds so good.

As part of the Once Upon a Read-a-Thon, hosted by Angela at Reading Angel and Candace at Candace's Book Blog I won some book swag. Thanks ladies!


Jessica Rules the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey: This is the 2nd book in the Jessica Rules series. I was soooo jealous of Jess over at She Known As Jess when I saw that she was lucky enough to get an ARC of Jessica Rules the Dark Side and when I told her such the awesome, amazing, incredible gal she is offered to let me borrow her copy! How totally cool is that! If I didn't love her and her blog enough. I just want to thank Jess for allowing me the honour of reading this so early and not having to wait--I'm so grateful. You seriously rock!

That's for me this week. Tell me.....what did you get in your mailbox?


  1. I love Gena Showalter's books, I want to get every single book. I still haven't read her YA line, but I have bk 1. My favorite series is the Atlantis series.

    You have a lot of awesome books and some great review books as well. I loved the Goddess Test and The Girl in the Steel Corset, fantastic books!

    Happy reading

  2. You haven't heard of Saving June before? It had/has a lot of hype. And I'm dying for it! (laughs) I hope you like it.

    And in the swag, I don't know if its a bookmark or a discussion guide, but I like the Fixing Delilah swag.
