In My Mailbox (8)

In My Mailbox (IMM) is hosted by Kristi @ The Story Siren
In My Mailbox is a place to showcase your new books,
whether you obtained them through the post or otherwise.

I received three signed books with some lovely messages inside from Jackie Morse Kessler this week, Hunger, Rage and the to-be-released Loss. I've heard some great things about these books and I can't wait to read them, the covers are absolutely gorgeous, too!

I've had another successful week getting review copies and some ARCs thanks to some wonderful publishers! I'm especially excited to read Masquerade, Marcelo in the Real World, A Catastrophic History of You and Me and Legend. I also received The Things We Did for Love, Girl Meets Boy, The Moth Diaries, Beautiful Malice, Distant Waves and the first two books in the Siren series - Siren and Pulse.

I made a few purchases from a discount book store this week. These are Ingo, Tide Knot, Shade's Children, The Stone Gods, Mary Poppins, Gale Force, The Fallen (2) Bind Up and Night World (3) Bind Up - I have a lot of variety to choose from there!

Some quite random finds from the charity shop this week - Son of a Witch, On the Edge, Fly Me to the Moon and Prom Nights from Hell. I also received Heist Society via swap and I bought Prozac Diary really cheap online.

A huge thank you to Quirk Books for sending me this awesome tote bag this week too, I love it and it's very spacious for carrying any new book buys... ;)


  1. 'I'm out of batteries' 'I'm not' LOL. So awesome. Oh and I see you got Heist Society :) You're gonna LOVE it!

    Drop by my IMM?

  2. Great books!! :) I hope you'll like and enjoy them all!

  3. Oh man! I LOVE that bag!! I love reading real books vs Kindle ones as well. Granted I have a Kindle and it does make using Netgalley tons easier, but still. Nothing beats a real book!

    Hope you enjoy all your new reads too! Haven't read any of them myself, so Happy Reading!

    Here's my IMM

Unfortunately this is an award and tag free zone - Whilst I appreciate the thought, I simply don't have the time to pass them on.
