In My Mailbox #1

Posted December 3, 2011 in Meme / 13 Comments

In My Mailbox is a weekly event held over at The Story Siren.  It’s a great way to let everyone know about the books that have come into your home the past week.  Whether you bought, borrowed, or received them for review, you share your loot and then hook up over at the The Story Siren.  It’s an awesome way to meet fellow bloggers and find new books to read!!

This past week, I sort of went on a binge when I noticed a book that had recommendations all over it from some of my favorite authors.

I bought Flesh and Blood by Kristen Painter when I saw it on sale at Target (where I try and buy all my “just released” books on sale) after I saw a bunch of friends on Goodreads talk about it.  I saw all the authors who were praising it and thought, “hmmmm, intriguing…”.  I was already headed to B&N for my son so I went over to pick up Blood Rights.  I saw Bad Blood on the shelf and, well, money just flew out of my pockets…

I also HAD to pick up Immortal Rider by Larissa Ione because I have a thing about picking up all the new releases by my favorite authors as soon as they come out.  I’m weird, I know…


About Kristin

Kristin has to ensure she gets her minimal requirement of "happily ever after" books in between those books that contain cliffhangers and never-ending story arcs. It's for her family's sake. When not reading, she's homeshooling her 10-year old son, watching cartoons on TV, or taking a nap.

  1. I have not read anything by Larissa Ione yet, but keep hearing amazing things. Guess I should add this to my wishlist. LOL

    And I was eyeing up a copy of Bad Blood the other day in a store when I realized I should buy the others first. So another wishlist item I guess. 😉

  2. Thanks for visiting my IMM! I’m glad I can help you out 🙂 You’re right, you just never know what you’ll find in the blogosphere!

    I can’t say I have read any of your IMM books, but the covers look really interesting!


  3. I got the first two books by Kristen Painter a few weeks ago too and I loved them! I’m really enjoying the series so far, it’s a very interesting, refreshing, intriguing new world! I hope you enjoy them as well!

    Oh! Awesome! Immortal Rider!<3 I'm dying to get that one, I'm addicted to Larissa Ione's writing!

    Happy reading!

  4. I totally love those covers! I’ve seen those around .. when I have some book money might have to drop some on them too 😀 For now it’s wishlist!
