In my mailbox # 14

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 am very proud to say I went into two, yes two, bookshops this week and DID NOT BUY ANYTHING. Which I thought was an amazing show of self restraint from myself. I'm trying really hard to concentrate on getting throught the books I already have sitting in my bookcases.
I have however pre-ordered a few books for August and September from Amazon and The Book Depository but that doesn't count (kind of, in my head anyway)  

For review I received:
Everlasting by Alison Noel
Forbidden by Jana Oliver

Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin
from the very lovely Maricar over at Blackplume

I bought
(I had already ordered these, honest guv...)
But I Love Him by Amanda Grace
Starstruck by Cyn Balog

From Net galley
Eve by Anna Carey

Anything nice in your mailbox this week?


  1. Forbidden and Eve seem great! Happy reading :D

  2. I really hope I get the chance to read Eve from netgalley as well (I only requested it yesterday).

    You've got a great selection of books there! :)

  3. I'm soo excited to read Eve! I got it from NetGalley too ;) I haven't read The Immortal series but it's high on my wishlist.

    Great books this week!

  4. Amazing mailbox! Where did you get Daughter of Smoke and Bone from? I wanna request a copy!

  5. Oh Wow, you got an ARC of Forbidden *jealousy* Lucky you!!!

  6. Wow, you got fantastic books this week.
    Daughter of Smoke and Bone! I recently tried my luck and contacted the publisher and they said they would send me a copy as well. Gotta love them for sending it to Germany. Can't wait for it to arrive. :)

    And trying not to buy any books? Wow, I don't think I would be capable of that. But on the other hand I need books for my vacation and my to-read pile here at home is "managable". Not enough to stop buying new books. :D

    Hope you enjoy all of your new novels! :)

  20. I agree, books that you have already paid for and just got shipped that week don't count as spending for the week. Congrats on no buying this week. I was able to hold out for 2 weeks and than I caved last week when one of my favorite used book stores had an awesome sale, I couldn't pass it up.

    Nice set of books you have there this week.
    Happy reading

  23. Nice mailbox this week. But I Love Him is on my to read list, it looks like such a great book.
