In My Mailbox (#26)

In My Mailbox was created by Kristi at The Story Siren.  It's a perfect way to see who's reading and review what.  Awesome!


Hi!  I missed last week's IMM 'cause I was on holiday, but there were no books there anyway -   :(   - so I didn't buy anything.  But I did make the mistake of popping into town.  And then into The Works.  As you can imagine: book heaven!  Therefore, this is what I got this - and sorta last - week -s -:
For Review:
Legend of Witchtrot Road (Spirit Guide, #3)Lorelei and the Sirens (The Sirens, #1)
Legend of Witchtrot Road (Spirit Guide, Book Three) by E.J. Stevens (Goodreads)
I've just finished E.J.'s first book, She Smells the Dead - I loved it and my review should be up soon - and started her second.  This one will come out in October, so be on the lookout for my review!  And: isn't this just the most beautiful cover ever?  Thanks E.J.!
Lorelei and the Sirens (The Sirens, Book One) by Aaronni Miller (Goodreads | Amazon)
This one sounds great!  "Lorelei's first taste of love will either set her free from the lies of her family or it will kill her and the boy she loves."  How amazing?  Thanks Aaronni!
Oriana's Eyes (Great Oak Trilogy, Book One) by Celeste Simone (Goodreads | Amazon)
This one looks brilliant too!  It's about two completely new species, and a forbidden love...  I can't wait! 
Bought:
Bite Club (The Morganville Vampires, #10)SecretariatPoison Study (Study, #1)
Beautiful MaliceRogue (H.I.V.E, #5)
Bite Club (The Morganville Vampires, Book Ten) by Rachel Caine (Goodreads | Amazon)
Once again, buying in advance.  I think I'm gathering all the books out before starting the series.  I have a little Morganville Vampires nest now!  ;)
Secretariat by William Nack (Goodreads | Amazon)
The True Story That Inspired A Major Film
I saw this movie and I was amazed by the horse, Big Red, AKA Secretariat.  So when I saw this book in The Works, I bought it straight away.  I can't wait to read it!  I love horses.  :)
Poison Study (Study, Book One) by Maria V. Snyder (Goodreads | Amazon)
Magic, Excitement and Adventure You Can Almost Taste...
Can't wait!  I've wanted this for aaages!  :D
Beautiful Malice by Rebecca James (Goodreads | Amazon)
Friendship Can Be Deadly
I love the look of this one!  It was on my Wishlist!  Yay!  ^.^
Rogue (H.I.V.E., Book Five) by Mark Walden (Goodreads | Amazon)
Evil Just Got Nasty...
Yes.  This series is for 9 year olds.  And yes.  It's about supervillians.  And yes.  It's awesome!  I love this series.  Guilty pleasure? :D
Witch Light by Susan Fletcher (Goodreads | Amazon)
This was an impulse buy.  It looks awesome!  Kinda like a more adult-y version of Witch Child by Celia Rees.  (:


netGalley:

Cold KissDeviantLegacy (Legacy, #1)
SpellboundBlack, White, Other: In Search of Nina Armstrong

Cold Kiss by Amy Garvey (netGalley | Goodreads | Amazon)
This looks brilliant!  Romantic, slightly creepy, haunting...  Amazing!  And the cover's gorgeous!
Deviant by Adrian McKinty (netGalley | Goodreads | Amazon)
This looks ace too! A thriller-mystery-suspense type novel.  Yay!  :D
Legacy (Legacy, Book One) by Cayla Kluver (netGalley | Goodreads | Amazon)
Love the look of this one!  Magic, princesses and romance.  Does it get any better?
Spellbound by Cara Lynn Shultz (netGalley | Goodreads | Amazon)
This looks ace!  It was actually on my wanted list, so: yes!
Black, White, Other by Joan Steinau Lester (netGalley | Goodreads | Amazon)
A wonderful, wonderful looking book.  It looks like a bit of a To Kill a Mockingbird style book.  I can't wait to read it.

That is my very, very, very, very long IMM.  Sorry if I bored you all to death!  ;)

What was in your mailbox this week?

Lots of awesome in your mailbox. Enjoy!

I just finished Cold Kiss and wound up loving it! I wasn't expecting that, and it was definitely a pleasant surprise for me.

Kristin Aragon said...

I really enjoyed Cold Kiss (even though I spent a lot of the book crying, I'm a sap.) And I adore the Morganville Vampire Series. I have read them all and they leave me wanting so much more...also, I have found I have an adoration for all characeters named Shane. LOL!

Happy Reading
