In my mailbox #17

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.

Before i start I just want to stay HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my Gran who is 101 (yes, one hundred and one!!) years old today, she will get her second telegram from The Queen today and I predict she will be as underwhelmed and critical of it as she was last year (more so probably this year).
People live long lives in my family her sister was 102!!!

Anyhoo, on to the books:

For review:
Shimmer by Alyson Noel
(I already have this but haven't actually read it yet)
Deception by Lee Nichols
(I read it that day it was a really good ghost story- my review will be up this week)

I bought:
Storm's Heart by Thea Harrison
(I loved Dragon Bound so I can't wait to read this)
Working Stiff by Rachel Caine
(I need to read this sharpish as I've promised to lend it out!)

(was kindly sent to me from Alyssa at Alyssa's bookshelf )

From swops:
