In My Mailbox (43, 44, 45 & 46)

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, trade or for review. It's hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren. As always, thanks so much for hosting it Kristi!

First off - sorry this is a day late! I wasn't going to do an IMM for these last 4 weeks... I think that's how long it's been since my last one. But I figured I haven't had much time to post in the last week - I've been busy reading! - I figured I might as well catch up and do a Christmas re-cap too. There won't be a picture for this one - sorry. They books are scattered all over my super messy shelves and... well, I'm sure I'll be forgetting something as it is. So, here's the last 4 weeks of IMM's!

Yes... a TON of books! I think I have them all here, though I have a feeling I've missed one or two. Just remember these books have been coming in for the last month PLUS there was a Christmas recap. Talk about an exciting month here! So many great titles, so little time. However, I've been reading like crazy, so there will be a bunch of reviews coming throughout the next few weeks and then some. Keep an eye out for more giveaways as well. What's your week in books been like?

  1. WHOA! That was a LOT!!

    Still have to read Verday's The Hallow myself.

    Love Rachel Vincent's books no matter what it is!

    Hope you enjoy the Forbidden Game Trilogy! Read that one myself years ago before the Vampire Diaries. I really liked it. Perhaps more than Vampire Diaries. My anthology one is the older 90s cover as well as my Vampire Diaries ones, I love them! They're so trippy!!

    Enjoy all those books!!

    Here was my IMM

    Happy Reading!

  2. Wow, you got some seriously awesome books the past month! Good luck reading all of those.

  3. Jeepers, that is one giant pile of books! And I thought I'd gotten a lot since the beginning of the year!

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.
