In my mailbox #13

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 a fab mailbox this week filled with lovely book goodness. *sighs happily*

First up I received a signed proof copy of Stealing Phoenix by Joss Stirling. I was so excited I woke my husband (who had just finished a night shift) to tell him all about it, how wonderful Finding Sky was, how it's not actually out until October, how AMAZING it will be etc etc. He was not very amused. Don't understand why. Anyway, I was excited and can't wait to read it.

I also received some RAK (Random Acts of Kindness) from lovely fellow bloggers.
Donna over at Book Passion for Life sent me 13 Little Blue Envelopes By Maureen Johnson
Maricar over at Blackplume sent me Ten Things We Did by Sarah Mlynowski (review to follow)
and GraveMinder by Melissa Carr.

Thank you ladies and I hope you enjoy your RAK's

The totally fab Jadey over at Ink Scratchers has let me borrow her copy of The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson which is the next book on my enormous TBR list. Thank you sooo much Jadey :) Her blog is fantastic, I really enjoy reading her reviews so go check it out.

I also received a big pile of swops this week both from Read It Swop It and the brilliant Goodreads group I am a member of UK Swap Shop.
Thanks again Donna, Lindsey and Kayleigh fab swops as always.

What was in your mailbox this week?


  1. Wow, did you get enough books this week? :)

    I've heard so many good things about Amy and Rodger. Glad you enjoyed it.

    I can't believe you haven't read 13LBR yet! It's so good! Apparently it is one of those books which are like Marmite, you either love it or you hate it.

    Great books this week :D

    Ps, I don't understand your husband either ;)

  2. Wow what an awesome mailbox!! You have enough books to keep you busy for a while...happy reading!
