In My Mailbox (23)

It's time for another week of In My Mailbox - here's a look at all the great books that arrived on my doorstep either by purchase, traded or for review. This week I'll be showing you everything that's arrived here or that I purchased while I was gone on my trip. And YAY, there's a picture this week! It's hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren. As always, thanks so much for hosting it Kristi!

Purchased from Amazon, Target or Walmart:
Spirit Bound By: Richelle Mead
Little Vampire Women By: Louisa May Alcott and Lynn Messina
Moon Sworn By: Keri Arthur
The Darkest Passion By: Gena Showalter
Sweep - Book of Shadows, The Coven & Blood Witch By: Cate Tiernan
Spooky Little Girl By: Laurie Notaro
Night of the Wolves By: Heather Graham

Purchased while in the UK:
The Sky is Everywhere By: Jandy Nelson (loved this book, review coming this week. It's a hard cover that's covered in this testured fabric and then has a band to keep the book closed like a journal would. It just looked so different and pretty that I had to get the UK version.)
Changling By: Steve Feasey
Changling: Blood Wolf By: Steve Feasey
Newes from the Dead By: Mary Hooper
Drake Academy: Secret Lives (Book 1) By: Gabriella Poole

*Special thanks to St. Martin's Press for both books!

So, there's what the last few weeks have looked like here and while I've been gone. Not a bad few weeks if you ask me :) I have a bunch of stuff on preorder and a few things coming in the mail yet that I hope to have this week. How has the week been for you guys? Get some good stuff?? Have a great week everyone.

  1. Seems like this has been a good book-buying time for a lot of bloggers! Maybe the warmer weather makes us all want to read like mad. (Or in my case, the warm and wet weather, which keeps me indoors more days than I care for.)

  2. You're lucky to win the Awakening! I love the UK cover for the Sky is Everywhere - maybe I'll buy it from the Book Depositary!


  3. Every blogger I've gone to on Mailbox Monday has huge piles of books ! Enjoy.

  4. Great new stuff!

    I LOVELOVELOVE the Sweep series! I just hate how there's 15 books lol.

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.
