In My Mailbox

In My Mailbox its hosted by Kristi from The Story Siren. Check out her site, its great!

So I thought I would take part in my first meme this week. The new books in my possession this week are mostly from the library but a couple are new purchases that I couldn't resist. I think this In My Mailbox may cover a little over 1 week as my trip to the library was just over a week a go but I though you would all forgive me for adding my library trip on.


Torment by Lauren Kate - I have been reading Fallen and really enjoyed it and when I saw a hardback cover I knew I had to get it. Also it was a complete bargain at half price in asda, I know not the usual book shop, but this was the only place up to now I have seen hardback covers.

Elixir by Hilary Duff - I have been seduced by the cover but the book actually sounds pretty good and I am looking forward to reading it. It was also another bargain.


Unseen Academicals by Terry Pratchett - This I won. I was so excited and surprised. It is the audio book which is very different for me. I actually collect Terry Pratchett's books and I am just waiting to be able to sit and get through them all as I have read too few in the past. I'm so excited that I won this though.


I may have gone a little crazy at the library and have a lot to read.

Fallen - Lauren Kate - I am loving this
Knife - R J Anderson
Rebel - R J Anderson
Never Let Me Go - Kazuo Ishiguro
The Sweet Scent Of Blood - Suzanne McLeod
Blood Feud - Alyxandra Harvey
Single White Vampire - Lynsay Sands
Love Bites - Lynsay Sands

Lastly thanks to the lovely publishers over at NetGalley I have a few wonderful books I am itching to review for them. I am so excited.

Nathaniel Fludd, Beastologist : The Wyvern's Treasure - R L LaFevers - I have already read and reviewed this book and I loved it. Thank you so much for letting me read and review this book. My review is here.

Nathaniel Fludd, Beastologist : The Unicorns Tale - R L LaFevers - After reading The Wyvern's Treasure I am really looking forward to reading this one.

The Postcard Killers - James Patterson and Liza Marklund - I love James Patterson books and I was really excited to read this one. I just finished it and I was not disappointed, it was great. Check back for my review soon.

The Lying Game - Sara Shepard - I am really excited to read this book. I have been enjoying the Pretty Little Liars series and am looking forward to reading the first novel in this new series.

The Trouble With Chickens - Doreen Cronin - This book just looked too cute to resist.

Angelfire - Courtney Allison Moulton - I am really excited to read this book it sounds great.

The Lipstick Laws - Amy Holder - I really liked the sound of this book and I'm really happy I have it to read.

I can't wait to see what everyone else got this week.


  1. A lot of great books! Did you like Fallen? I'm not sure if I should buy Torment, because I thought Fallen was just so-so.

    I'm a new follower and I'm looking forward to following your reviews! My Mailbox is here.

  2. Oh I love new followers. I'm going to go check out your blog now.

    I'm not finished with Fallen yet, but what I have read I enjoyed. I just finished The Postcard Killers as I had a hideous migraine yesterday so I was delayed in finishing it. If you think it was so-so maybe you could check it out the library?

  3. Great books this week! Blood Feud is a good read! I'll be interested to see what you think of Elixir! Happy reading! :)

  4. Thanks, have you read Elixir? I was in a rush at the library when I picked Blood Feud up and now have to hut at another library for My Love Lies Bleeding, not my smartest hour.

  5. Haha wow thats a list of books! I hope you enjoy them all! Mine is here:

  6. You do know I have My Love Lies Bleeding...

  7. Thanks, a lot have to go back to the library though :( I wish I could keep them. Looks like you had a great week at your library too.

  8. Well I will be coming to steal your copy of My Love Lies Bleeding then :P

  9. Great books! Fallen is a great series, and Torment was even better than Fallen. I also have Lipstick Laws to read and it does look good!

  10. Hi, thats great to hear that Torment is better than Fallen. I am really enjoying Fallen though.
