In my mailbox #24

In my mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren

I bought a few books this week most of which were books I had pre-ordered (I am the queen of pre-ordering) I am loving which allows me to feed my Aussie YA habit. The only problem is when they deliver they put a big giant sticker on it saying its a book and it has the cost of the book on it eeekkkkkk. I therefore have to ensure my husband doesn't see the sticker as I may have led him to believe all books ordered online only cost about £2 *snigger* In hindsight I really wished I had picked a more realistic fabricated price. Oh well never mind. 

Fury by Shirley Marr
(Just finished this, it's very dark I loved it)
Blood Song by Rhiannon Hart
(This isn't available in the UK so I am mega excited to read it)
All These I've Done by Gabrielle Zevin
(I read a couple of good reviews and decided it sounded right up my street)
Drink Slay Love by Sarah Beth Durst
(Bought after seeing Missie @ The Unread reader's book boyfriend post)
Kiss of Night by Debbie Viguie
(I ordered this ages ago- a knight who is now a vampire squeee)
The Dragon Who Loved Me by G.A. Aiken
(I HEART this series- hilarious and hot shapeshifting dragons what more does a girl need? )

From Net galley

I was just about to order Blood Rights when I saw it on Net Galley. Win!

I was thinking of trying to do a vlog IMM but I lack the technical wizardry to make it happen so I'm still thinking about it, plus I'm worried no one will understand my Glaswegian accent.
 I could just wave books in front of the camera so it might work out ok!

 What was in your mailbox this week


  1. I really like the cover for Blood Rights. I'll have to check that book out. I really want to read All These Things I've Done, hopefully I will get myself a copy soon. I hope you enjoy your new books!

  2. I love the cover for Kiss of Night. I didn't realize it was about a knight who is a vampire. I might have to get over my vampire avoidance soon and read it, I love knights. Drink, Slay, Love also looks very good! Happy reading. :) My IMM
