In my mailbox #38

In my mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren

Hope everyone is having a good week, I went back to work *le sigh* after the festive break full of good intentions that I would remain calm at all times and think positive thoughts. That lasted about 20 minutes.

I've also pretty much blown my New Year book resolutions too, which were as follows: 1. Don't request so many books from Netgalley and 2.Write the review immediately after finishing the book. So after only two weeks I've requested 8 books from Netgalley (OMG 8!) and I have 7 (arrgghhh) reviews to write!

Here's the book goodness I received this week.

For review
Advent by James Treadwell
Grave Dance by Kalayna Price
(I have Grave Witch somewhere so I will need to dig that out first)
Thanks to Hodder & Stoughton and Berkley UK

I bought
Lothaire by Kresley Cole
(I couldn't put it down, Lothaire is such a baddie!)
Winging It by Deborah Cooke

From netgalley

 Lies Beneath by Anne Greenwood Brown
(Pretty excited about this one, it was on my wish list and will count towards my 2012 Debut authors challenge!) 
Shooting Stars by Allison Rushby
Spin by Catherine McKenzie
Touch Me by Callie Croix
Pretty Crooked by Elisa Ludwig
Midnight Reckoning by Kendra Leigh Castle

Dark Descendant by Jenna Black
This is one of those books I've been meaning to read for ages and the lovely Jodie @ Books for Company who is one of my favourite book swappers sent me it as a surprise. Cheers Jodie!
