In My Mailbox (11)


In My Mailbox (IMM) is hosted by Kristi @ The Story Siren
In My Mailbox is a place to showcase your new books


First of all, I have to say a huge thanks to Nina at Death, Books and Tea for sending me a copy of Night School. It looks great and I can't wait to get around to reading it!


 Some fantastic ARC and review copies came into my home this week. I received a copy of Article 5 from America and I'm so excited to see if it lives up to all it's hype! I'm also looking forward to see what Michael Grant is offering in his new series, starting with BZRK. I love the covers of Hollow Pike and Dead Rules, so I'm keen to see whether the contents are just as good! I hadn't heard much about Unravelling before I got my hands on this copy, but it sounds like it's going to be very popular! As for a bit of a lighter read, I'll be reading My Family and Other Freaks.

I only made two swaps this week, but I think that they were good ones! I received some realistic fiction -Between Mom and Jo as well as some vampire goodness - Lucinda, Darkly.



 I came out of Waterstones in Newcastle with my hands full this weekend and a huge smile on my face! They were having a sale and I picked up some great bargains. I am very excited for them all - I picked up Breathing, The Tear Collector, Her and Me and You, Nothing Like You, Food, Girls and Other Things I Can't Have, The Not Quite Perfect Boyfriend, Compulsion, The Scorpio Races. I also picked up Early To Death, Early To Rise and Zenith, both seconds in series so I need to read the first books too, but thankfully they are sitting on my bookshelf! I have had my eyes on My Girlfriend's a Geek for a few weeks and they had the second volume in the sale, so I bought that and ordered the first! I also picked up Real Live Boyfriends, the fourth Ruby Oliver installment.

 This was my most exciting purchase this week. A very expensive copy of A Book of Dreams by Peter Reich that I won by auction! I've had my eye on this for a very long time but it's no longer in publication and so it's pretty hard to obtain. I am so excited to finally have a copy!

  17. Wow you got a ton of books this week! Night School looks amazing but I think it is a UK release meaning I'll have to wait for it since Book Depository never seems to have UK books for US people in stock!

    I hope you enjoy everything you got including the one you were super excited to get at the auction!

    Happy reading!

  18. Very nice. Never heard of Night School. The cover is beautiful for it though.

  20. Wow. That's A LOT of books. I can't believe you did that well in Waterstones - I can never find a single thing I even vaguely want to read in their sales. Clearly I need to start stalking the Newcastle branch!

    I've heard wonderful things about Article 5, so I can't wait to see what you think of that one. The Scorpio Races has gotten some amazing reviews too, but it just doesn't appeal to me. Not sure why, but there you go :)

  21. Wow, that's an amazing batch of books! I'm really looking forward to Article 5, fingers crossed it's as good as everyone says it is. :) Happy reading!

  26. Holy smokes! Lovely mailbox; so many books! I can't wait to dive into The Scorpio Races and Article 5. I have heard nothing but great things. I'm insanely jealous of all the books you got. They all look really good and I definitely wants. lol Oh, and the book you got from an auction (A Book of Dreams) totally cool. I've never bought something through auction.

    Hope you enjoy all those book <3 :)

  35. Night School sounds awesome, as does Article 5! I'm also really curious about BZRK, I don't know much about it to be honest.
    I haven't read Early to Death...yet but book 1 was a fun read.
    And Compulsion! Hadn't heard of it but the OCD aspect sounds really intriguing, appeals to my inner psych major haha.

    Thanks for visiting and happy reading :)

  36. That's quite the haul!!
    and with so many awesome looking books!!
    And congrats on winning that book :D

  41. I really like that instead of just listing the titles, you share how you got them or what you think about them in a narrative form. I like that about you!

    Happy reading of all of the books!

  46. I love the cover of Sunny and Night School. The latter sounds extremely interesting and reminds me a bit of the manga Vampire Knight, which I enjoy. It has a night and day school setting as well. Enjoy reading!

  47. Article 5 sounds really good. Hope you enjoy it;)

    ReplyDelete
  48. Wow, this is one of the biggest IMM posts I've ever seen--and so much exciting stuff!

    I was so curious after you said you won that Peter Reich book in an auction. I went and read up on it on Goodreads and WHOA. What a weird story! I'm definitely interested now but it seems it might be a hard one to come by since it is out of print.

    I tried BZRK but couldn't get into it right away (wrong mood) but I hope it works out for you. Happy reading! It will take you ages to finish all these wonderful books:)

    ReplyDelete
  49. OMGoodness! So many great books that I don't know where to begin. Many will be added to my TBR list! BTW...love your blog design :) Thanks for stopping by!
