In My Mailbox #7

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

A Birthday IMM! My birthday was on Monday and I got a few books as presents (because my friends and family know me well)

Firelight - Sophie Jordan

I've had a few friends read this one and they said it was a really interesting concept. You don't read a lot about Dragons, especially not in a modern society situation. While I'm a big fan of certain supernatural categories (aka. vampires); I'm always looking for paranormal books that are outside the familiar. I really hope 'Firelight' will apply to this.

Carrier of the Mark - Leigh Fallon

A book I've been looking forward to reading for a while. I know almost nothing about it, except what is written on the back blurb (trying to keep outside influences away from my own views), but I'm interested to see what it'll be like.

Crossed - Ally Condie

Sequel to 'Matched'. I really liked 'Matched', it was a little more innocent than other YA books I read, but I loved the concept and am looking forward to reading 'Crossed'.

And for the non-birthday presents (although the first two on this list did turn up on my birthday, they were like gifts to myself)

Friday Night Bites - Chloe Neill

Yes! It arrived! So now I can finally jump back into the Chicagoland Vampire books and see what trouble will come to Merit this time. I started reading it yesterday and I adore it already.

Half-Blood - Jennifer L. Armentrout

I won 'Half-Blood' in a blog competition (thanks Kara @ Great Imaginings). I was interested to see what the book is like, after seeing Alex in the YA-Sisterhood's Heroine Tournament; and now I have the chance to do so.

I'm always hunting around for new paranormal books and this series sounded like a good one. A training camp for supernatural beings? Sounds like fun to me!

Under the Never Sky - Veronica Rossi

I've been wanting to get this book for a while and finally got a chance to buy it the other day (I also managed to break my Book-Buying-Ban in the process, but it was for a good cause).

Magic Graves -  Jeaniene Frost and Ilona Andrews

Another book (or ebook in this case) I've been trying to get my hands on for ages, but it's been tricky to find in Australia. Fortunately, I have a fantastic friend who sent it to me and I was able to read it on Friday. Amazing two novellas, exploring two worlds I adore: Night Huntress and Kate Daniels. I love both these worlds and loved being back in them, if only for a few moments.

And that's my mailbox for this week. Probably won't be one from me next week, due to the Book-Buying-Ban. I'll hand the IMM reins to Kerrie.



  1. Great IMM!! OMG! Half-Blood is freaking amazing!!!!!! I loved it! I also enjoyed Firelight & Crossed! Enjoy your books! :)

    My IMM:


    1. I'm looking forward to reading it. I've heard mixed things about Half-Blood, so I'm a little nervous too. But I feel like I'll enjoy it, there are certain books that just give off that vibe.

      Thanks for stopping by.
