In my mailbox #45

In my mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren

Hello fellow readers

I bought a couple of books this week, Nalini Singh's Angel Flight and Thea Harrison's Oracle's Moon were pre-ordered ages ago. I love Nalini Singh's books and I actually discovered Thea Harrison via Nalini Singh's blog. I bought Blood Rights by Kristen Painter from The Works for much cheapness and I borrowed Envy by Gregg Olsen from UK Book Tours.

I also got a couple of books from Net Galley despite telling myself repeatedly that I have enough books to read.

I read Grave Mercy straightaway and LOVED it big time. If you liked Poison Study you will like Grave Mercy. I also got All These Lives by Sarah Wylie, Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo and Struck by Jennifer Bosworth. I was beyond excited to see these were all available on Net Galley as I've had all of them on my wish list.

Here's what was going on this week:

Review of Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood
My book boyfriend - Vaughn from Unsticky by Sarra Manning
March new releases I want to add to basket
Review of A Perfect Storm by Lori Foster
On my wish list- How to Drive a Dragon Crazy
Giveaway winners

I only managed to read 2 books this week which is rubbish for me but A Perfect Blood took me forever it was a bit of a chore:(

Have a good week every body.


  1. Looks awesome! I haven't read any of these books (yet), but I have to say that I really love the cover of All These Lives by Sarah Wylie. Maybe it's about the water or the simplicy of it... but I just think it's very great. And I'm glad you liked Grave Mercy. Maybe I should buy that one, too... (Yeah, it's not like my TBR shelf is full of books or something...) :D

    If you want to, feel free to check out my first IMM ever here.

  2. you didn't like perfect blood? i was hoping to have the paperback but it's sold out so i have to wait more than 200 days so do i need to be anxious or not^^;;

    1. The first half was a real slog and I seriously thought about leaving it, it perked up though towards the end. I was kind of disapointed.

  3. I got Grave Mercy from netgalley this week as well and finished it too! Although my review won't be out for a while I really enjoyed it as well! I've had Blood rights for ages but must read it soon...great haul this well!

  4. Seems like a lot of people got Net Galley books. Great haul of books.


  5. I have a a copy of Grave Mercy too! I can't wait to read it. It looks so good and different. I hope that you enjoy your new books!
