In my mailbox


In my mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi of The Story Siren which aims to let book bloggers share what books they have bought, swapped or borrowed.

This week I bought The Gathering by Kelley Armstrong (I got a very strange look from the guy serving me in Waterstone's the bookshop as I bought 2 copies- one for me and one for the giveaway) and City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare (I haven't read any of this series yet but keep meaning too!). I swapped 2 of my old books and received I am Number Four by Pittacus Lore and Tall, Dark and Dead by Tate Hallaway.


Despite promising myself I wouldn't buy anything from Amazon this week I ended up buying Larissa Ione's Eternal Rider. Isn't the US cover gorgeous? More of the naked man chest visible than on the UK cover. It's next on my list to read.

US Cover - yummy naked man chest

UK Cover- Naked man chest hidden by giant horse.
(probably because he is one of the four Horsemen of the Apocalypse so that's OK really)

  1. You got a great stash of books. I haven't read any Larissa Lone books would you recommend her? Love Mortal Instruments series and anything written by Kelley Armstrong (have you read her adult series)?

  2. Hi Neri, I love Elena and Clay from Kelley Armstrong's Otherworld series! I've read a few of Larissa Ione's Demonica series it was a while back but it was really good and I would recommend it. I'm going to start Eternal Rider today I can't wait!

  5. Haha, I totally bought a UK cover because I liked it better than the US one (it was for the book Wereworld)! Funny how that works sometimes! Hope you enjoy reading!
