In My Mailbox (11)

In My Mailbox (IMM) is hosted by Kristi @ The Story Siren
In My Mailbox is a place to showcase your new books,
whether you obtained them through the post or otherwise.

 These are the ARC and review copies I got this week! As the next book in The Demon Trappers series is released soon, I had better check out the first two, Forbidden and Forsaken, to find out the story so far! I also received Invincible by Sherrilyn Kenyon, The Witch of Turlingham Academy and 666 Park Avenue. I'm so excited to read Welcome, Caller, This is Chloe as I'll be participating in a book tour for it very soon!

I swapped four books this week and received two for postage costs, which is great! I've had Plan B and Define Normal on my wish list for a while. I've also heard good things about Pretty Bad Things, Princess Academy, Friend or Fae and Kiss Date Love Hate - so here's hoping they are enjoyable, as some of those aren't books that I'd usually choose.

I got a whole load of bargains last week at Waterstones and this week I managed to pick up even more - I found and purchased Zombie Queen of Newbury High, Lost It, Bruiser, Emma's Luck, Tomorrow When The War Began, Faultline, Easy and Code Talker. After buying their sequels last week, I needed to buy My Girlfriend's a Geek v.1.0 and The Treasure Map of Boys, so I ordered those which arrived yesterday. I also couldn't resist ordering Shine which has been on my wish list for such a long time. One charity shop find this week too, One Minute to Midnight which I think I'll put aside for next New Year!


  1. Wow, great haul. Kiss, Date, Love, Hate is brilliant, happy reading!

  2. Wow, so many great books - lucky you! Forsaken and Forbidden are amazing :)

  3. Great haul! I Forsaken was quite good and the first book to Invinsible - which is Infinity is just AWESOME! 'I've also heard good things on Pretty Bad Things' I don't why but I laughed at that. Maybe it's because of the words. But yeah, I hward good things on it too:) Happy reading! =D
