In my mailbox #10

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

I had quite a few hardbacks on order this week which seemed to all arrive at the same time. I don't usually buy hardbacks so I am overcome with guilt but I keep telling myself these are my summer reads which makes it all ok!

This week I bought:

Ultraviolet by RJ Anderson
Hexed by Kevin Hearne
Possession by Elana Johnson
Flying Blind by Deborah Cooke
Moonglass by Jessi Kirby
Hourglass by Myra McEntire
Fairy Bad Day by Amanda Ashby

I received from Donna over at Book Passion for Life
Leaving Paradise by Simone Elkeles
Thank you Donna, I owe you a swop!

From the Simon and Schuster Galley Grab

Fury by Elizabeth Miles (I bet everyone grabbed that one!)
Love Story by Jennifer Echols

I have one more week of work and then I am off for the summer for 7 whole weeks (Yay!) so I am hoping I can finally get through some of my enormous to be read pile.
(small children permitting)

What was in your mailbox this week?


  1. I am jealous of basically everything in your mailbox, specifically Fairy Bad Day and Fury and Hourglass and... who am I kidding? EVRYTHING!

    I already read Ultraviolet and it is a great book, hope you enjoy it!

  11. Mel that is a very valid point- you have made me feel so much better :)

  12. I'm so jealous of your copies of Hourglass and Possession, those hardbacks are SO PRETTY! :D I don't normally buy hardbacks either because they are so much more expensive, but I caved and bought one this week too :D Happy reading and enjoy your books!
