In My Mailbox #5

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

It's that time of the week again. Here's all the goodies from my mailbox for the last week.

Fate's Edge - Ilona Andrews

The third book in Ilona Andrews' series "The Edge". I discovered Ilona Andrews earlier this year with her Kate Daniels series (which I adore) and followed it up with the first two Edge books (On the Edge and Bayou Moon). 

I'm looking forward to reading Fate's Edge and diving back into the crazy world Andrews has created.  

Crave - Melissa Darnell

I saw this book a few weeks ago on Facebook on Harlequin Australia's teen page. I couldn't resist buying it when I was in Big W last week.     Can't wait to see if it's as good as everyone's saying it is. 

(On a side note, if you cruise books sites a lot like I do, you might notice the Australian cover of Crave looks a lot like the cover for Dark Companion by Marta Acosta. It happens sometimes, I just hope it's not like the Aussie Dark Angel/Goddess Test situation, where both books were released at the same time with the exact same cover, makes viewing in store confusing)

Clockwork Prince - Cassandra Clare

I've already finished this one (and had to push aside a few other books in order to do so). Loved it, even though there were times when I was dying. Cassandra Clare knows how to make you react to characters. If you haven't read any of her books, I definitely suggest you do. They're awesome. 

Some Girls Bite - Chloe Neill

I've been wanting to read Some Girls Bite for months. It's the first book in the Chicagoland Vampires series. Had a little difficulty getting the book, but after a bit of talking to The Book Depository, it finally arrived. Can't wait to start it, I've been looking for another good vampire series to read and this might be it. 

The Pledge - Kimberly Derting

Thanks to Rachel @ Fiktshun's Ramblings for the chance to win. I feel really bad for being *slightly* impatient waiting for The Pledge to arrive, I may have bugged Rachel with emails for a few weeks. But it finally arrived last weekend and I'm looking forward to reading it. 

Thanks goes to my friend Ash for the next two books; they're early Christmas gifts and I definitely feel a little spoiled because of them. A Touch Mortal and Chime are two of Ash's favourite books from 2011, so I'm touched that she wants to spread the love to me and I hope I enjoy them as much as she did; I'm sure I will. 

A Touch Mortal - Leah Clifford                              Chime - Franny Billingsley

And that's my mailbox for this week.



  1. Ooh wow these covers are so pretty!! I love the one for Crave best - and that book sounds awesome too I have it on my wishlist!

    Xpresso Reads

  2. wow you got some really beautiful books happy reading!!!!

  3. @Giselle I remember originally reading the blurb for Crave and not taking in much about it, I just really wanted to own the cover.

    @NATURE HISTORY BOOKS Thank you, and thanks for following. Happy reading to you too.


  4. I loved The Pledge (though it got many mixed reviews) and I love that cover for Crave; it's Gorgeous!

    Great books this week! Happy reading and Happy Holidays!

  5. @-k I'm really looking forward to reading The Pledge. It sounds like a fun book.

    Happy holidays to you too.


  6. Uh, seriously? I think your mailbox is even better than mine, and I was inordinately excited about my mailbox!

    I'm SO excited to read Crave, and SOME GIRLS BITE? Oh. My. GOODNESS. I freaking LOVED this book! Get the other books, too! they're SOOOO GOOOOOD.

    And how serously amazing does The Pledge sound? I heard some mixed reviews, but I'm chosing to ignore them. LOVE the idea of the languages and classes and SERIOUSLY! Yay!

  7. @Sarah (saz101) haha, my mailbox is good, but you got VA. Nothing beats VA.

    The other Chicagoland Vampire books are on my to-buy list. I had issues getting the first one (Book Depository was slow) so I'm sticking with this one for now.

    Yeah, -k (above) mentioned mixed reviews too. I haven't read any of the reviews for The Pledge. I entered Fiktshun's comp without knowing anything about the book and I figured since I'd won it, there was no need to look for info about the book because I didn't need convincing to buy it. I'm sad it's got mixed reviews though, I love the sound of it and I'm looking forward to reading it real soon.

    Thanks for stopping by.


  8. Hope you love A Touch Mortal! Happy reading!

  9. @Leah Clifford I'm looking forward to reading it, I've heard great things. Thanks for stopping by.
