In My Mailbox #9 ~ And It Just Keeps Coming…

Posted March 4, 2012 in Meme / 19 Comments

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme 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 week was a little nuts again because I received all the books I ordered from Amazon (thanks, Mom & Dad!!).  Related, I got a Kindle Touch from my wonderful brother & sis-in-law for my birthday last week, too!  Granted, I’m a huge fan of the bookshelf and all the glorious books shining out at me.  But jeez!  All the cheap reads on Amazon that I’ve been downloading lately had me thinking that reading books on my iPhone SUCKS DISHWATER!!  Surprise!  My little bro & sis to the rescue!!  Ahhhhh, my migraine eyes thank you!!

Bought – Actual physical books (click on images to go to Goodreads book page)
The Darkest Seduction If I Die Some Girls Bite pic name
Third Grave Dead Ahead The Space Between pic name

The Demon in Me was recommended in Goodreads (why have I not seen that feature before?).  Enslave Me Sweetly is the the second book in the Alien Huntress series by Gena Showalter and absolutely impossible to find so I’ve been stuck in the series!!

E-books bought
Evernight Raphael A Touch of Frost Twist

Raphael was recommened on Goodreads (love Lady Vale!).  Twist is the second book in the Mageri series by Dannika Dark and is one of my favorite new UF/PNR series out there.  Extremely original!!  My review of the first book, Sterling, is here

Won from the very cool “family” at Book Sake

What books found a home at your house (or on your e-reader) this week?!?!?

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.

    Happy Reading!

  2. So many great books and a Kindle Touch!! I can’t handle reading on my iPhone for long either. I have an iPad that comes in pretty handy for it, but the Kindles are soooo much lighter and won’t weigh your bag down when traveling. I just finished listening to Third Grave – love that series!!!

    Our IMM is at Book Sake. –Jessica

    • I’m glad you said that about the Kindles vs. iPads! My hubby is looking at Kindle Fires for himself since we have 2 laptops for everything else (and iPhones out the wazoo) Thanks!!!

  3. Great mailbox! I LOVE the Chicagoland Vampire series! Great choice there, for sure! I’ve been wanting to read the Soul Screamers series, but haven’t had the chance yet. I have The Space Between on my Kindle, but it’s on my TBR list still. And I absolutely adored Touch of Frost. I hope you enjoy all of your books!

  6. Amazing stuff! The Demon In Me is always recommended by me!!! LOL I love MICHELLE ROWEN!!! Also LOVED If I Die! TOD! I also have Some Girls Bite and The Space Between but haven’t read them. I need to get Third Grave Dead Ahead and Touch of Frost. Evernight was pretty good. I love Balthazar! Happy reading and thanks for visiting My IMM!!!

  7. I like your In My Mailbox piccie with the cat!

    I can’t believe you are still reading A Perfect Blood. I tried to go slower but I couldn’t restrain myself. I was like “More Trent, need more, want more!”lol. As long as you are enjoying it, that’s the main thing.

    I love Netgalley, personally. It can be a bit of a kid in a candy store scenario, but as long as you don’t go crazy with it, it’s a great way to try new authors and also to provide early reviews for your blog. Plus, you’ll notice a lot of NetGalley members all end up reading the same thing at the same time on Goodreads, which is nice. Like buddy reading for bloggers!

    Have a great week!

  8. So many great books!!!
    Chicagoland Vampires are awesome!! Gotta love Showalter. Immaddicted to sexy PNR reads period! 😉
    I just finished reading Dark Frost, great series. I love Rachel Vincent’s Adult series so I figure the same for her YA screamers series too.

    I’m going to look up Enslave Me Sweetly and the Michelle Rowen book based simply on the eye candy! Lol
    Oh and Darynda Jones is hilarious. Let me know what you think of The Space Between

    Great books this week!!! 😉

    Thanks for visiting my IMM

  9. YES! for The Space Between. It’s still my favorite book read in 2012 (I’ve read close to 60 already, so that’s saying something). Also, the new Charley Davidson was hilarious, as always. Defintiely better than book 2.
