In My Mailbox #2

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren.

A big IMM post for this week. I haven't been doing weekly posts (as I'm sure you have all noticed), so I've decided to include most of the books I've bought and received since then.

I was going to take photos off all my copies, but since they're still in a giant pile in my sister's room it is a little tricky to get to them all, so I've found book covers online instead.

Bought Books

If I Die - Rachel Vincent

The 5th Soul Screamers book. I was dying to read this book for weeks before it came out, even though I'd only been aware of the series for a few months. I can only imagine how other fans felt waiting for so long for the next instalment.

You can read my review here!

Silence - Becca Fitzpatrick

The 3rd book in the Hush, Hush series. I was excited to read it, especially because of Patch (although probably not as excited as Kerrie was).

Last Breath - Rachel Caine

The newest Morganville book and my favourite in the series so far. It's fun to be back in the vampire town. If you love Claire and the gang, you'll love this book. And if you haven't read the Morganville series, get started! (Book 1 is 'Glass Houses')


The final book in the Strange Angels series. After following the series for 2 years I was desperate to find out how everything ended. Would Sergej finally be defeated? Would Chris or Graves win Dru's heart? The ending was a little unexpected, but full of action, so it sort of balanced itself out.

The Iron Queen

I held off buying The Iron Queen for quite a while and finally caved last week so I could finally be up-to-date for the release of 'The Iron Knight'. So glad I did, it was such a good book.

The Iron Knight

Just finished 'The Iron Knight' yesterday and was so happy with the way the series ended. I adore Ash and it was nice to be inside his head for an entire book.

Shatter Me

I've been hearing fantastic things about this book from friends who got a chance to read the first 25 chapters online a few weeks ago. It seems like Australia got the book a week or two early so I thought I better buy it and give it a go. 90 pages in and I'm loving it. I think I have a soft spot for dystopias, I can't seem to pass them up.


Between - Cyndi Tefft

I follow Cyndi Tefft on Twitter and haven't read her book yet. I can't resist the idea of a sexy Scottish grim reaper, especially when I was sent the deleted sexy shower scene. I haven't read the deleted scene yet, I want to read them book first. Look for a review very soon.

The Girl In The Steel Corset - Kady Cross

I love the cover for this book and can't wait to read it. I haven't read much steampunk, but I've been told this is a fantastic book, so I'm hoping it'll get me addicted to more steampunk books. I managed to recommend it to my sister already, which says something about it's appeal because she doesn't follow my recommendations much (I still can't get her to read The Hunger Games!). I'm hoping to dive into this one next week.

Borrowed from Kerrie

Books 5-8 of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. I've just started #5 (Lover Unbound) and so far I'm really enjoying it. the Brothers are really interesting and I've been told Vishous (the star of book #5) is very sexy.

Books I won.

Silence - Becca Fitzpatrick.
Thanks to Michelle @ Novels On The Run. I'm hoping to get this one signed by Becca in December when she's in Sydney. Got my ticket to the Black Hand Ball already, and I'm pretty excited about meeting Becca.

Wish: Dreams Beginning - Deby Adair
I won this in a Goodreads giveaway. The cover is really pretty and I Deby does all the artwork herself. I've never really read much about unicorns, so I'm looking forward to giving Deby's series a go. And what makes it better is that the book is signed! Thanks so much Deby.

The Iron King - Julie Kagawa
Thanks Harlequin Australia! And it came with an Inside Out/Outside In bookmark signed by Maria V. Snyder!

And that's it for my mailbox for the last few weeks. I'm going to try and do a regular post next week so I don't have quite so big a build-up of books.

  4. @Alison Can Read Thanks for following Alison. I love Morganville, it's a pretty fun series.

    @sinn I kept seeing TGITSC around, but I was really nervous about reading it because I don't know a lot about steampunk.

    @Giselle Finished Shatter Me the other day and adored it. It is such a good book. I'm going to recommend it to all my book friends.


  5. Need to get caught up on Morganville Vamps as well. You got some awesome books as well. Loved Shatter Me. Come visit me as well.

  6. @Grace Fonseca I think that's the biggest problem with Morganville, that there are so many books in the series already.

    I know! Shatter Me is amazing.

    Thanks for stopping by.
