It's that time again for another week of In My Mailbox. This marks week 11-ish of a peek into the various books that I've picked up, ordered or had arrive on my doorstep for review. It's hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren. Thanks again for hosting it Kristi! So here's what I got this week.....

So, I haven't done one of these again for a few weeks now. I had a busy week in books with the last weekend before my book outlet closed/moved. Then I had a quiet week, and this week was pretty good. I figured it's about time to play catch up again... so here's the good stuff:

My Ratings

When I review I rate from 1 to 5 stars, 5 being the highest rating. I review based on many different things from the writing, to the story - to the characters and how I can relate to them or how they are developed. I also review based on if an author has worked their magic and was able to draw me into a story so deeply that I don't want to put the book down. If you would like me to review a book, please contact me or view my Contact Information and Review Policy for further details.

5 Stars - I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!
4 Stars - I Really liked/Loved it.
3 Stars - I liked it/Was pretty good.
2 Stars - It was, eh okay.
1 Star - It just wasn't for me.
