In My Mailbox (#41)

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! 



I may have bought one or two too many books... But I love them all!  They came in one go (even though they were from a couple different online shops), so much of that morning was devoted to stroking spines, before I decided I ought to actually get a move on.  I also went OTT on NetGalley (trust, I've requested more than the ones on this page!)
Before I go, if you live in the UK, don't forget to check out the Sue Limb Blog Tour Giveaway of Chocolate S.O.S - three winners!  And where ever you live, check out the three awesome author guestposts I've had this week: one from Curtis Jobling, Sue Limb and Kirsty Murray
I'll get on with the meme now. ;)

For Review:

Stones For My Father by Trilby Kent (Goodreads | Amazon)
In A Time Of War What Would You Sacrifice For Love?
I love the sound of this one - it just looks SO GOOD!  I CAN'T WAIT to read it!!! :D
172 Hours on the Moon by Johan Harstad (Goodreads | Amazon)
Three Of Them Will Go One The Trip Of A Lifetime.
Only One Wukk Come Back.
I am SO excited about this one!!  I've been wanting to get it for aaages, so when Atom offered, I jumped at the chance to read it!  And from what I've read: SO COOL!  :D :D
Thank you Atom and Alma!!

And The Summer That Changed Everything...
This is part of my own personal challenge, set by Sammee (I Want To Read That) 'cause I don't read enough romance-romance books.  The challenge?  To read 12 romance books off of a list chosen by Sammee.  So far: bought two books for said challenge!  *victory fist pump*  All I have to do is, well, read them.  And 10 more.  So excited!
