In my mailbox #29 and October RAK roundup

In my mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren

I bought

Amplified by Tara Kelly
(I just finished it like 5 minutes ago it's brilliant)
Jumping off Swings by Jo Knowles
(I think I will start this in 5 minutes!)

For review
Fins are Forever by Tera Lynn Childs
Arcadia Awakens by Kai Meyer
(I'm really looking forward to Arcadia Awakens it sounds pretty good)

I'm still trying not to buy lots of new books and concentrate on reading what is already on my shelf. It worked out pretty well this week as I managed to read 4 books that had been on my shelf for a while so I've got tonnes of reviews to now catch up on.

 I sent out a few RAK's in October
A Long Long Sleep to Misty @ Bookaholics cos she's lovely
Touch of Frost and If I Stay to Carina @ Fictional Distraction cos she's lovely too

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer and Drink Slay Love for C.J Duggan cos she's the funniest most awesome Australian I know and her blog makes me laugh out loud and she loves Fleetwood Mac just like me and quotes Karate Kid perfectly. (phew, loads of reasons there)

I received
From the lovely Misty @ Bookaholics
I've had this on my wish list for ages so I was beyond excited to finally get my hands on it. Thanks again Misty you are awesome.
Have a great week everyone.
