In My Mailbox #11 ~ When Does Everyone Find Time To Read?!

Posted April 15, 2012 in Meme / 20 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.

Soooooo… after much reluctance, hemming and hawing, and a kick in the butt (ouch) from friend and fellow blogger Silverlight (aka Lisa) at Paranormal & Urban Fantasy Reviews and Goodies, I’ve gotten myself up on NetGalley.  And oops, I got approved for what I asked for.  Now I’m screwed…

Here’s the awesome goods I got this week.  Maybe you’ll see something you like??

For review from NetGalley:

I’m reading Alien Diplomacy right now (same Kitty, same great series!).  Darkness Falls sounded like a very cool vampire story.  You Burn Me I stumbled across on another blog and this novella was only 99cents.  I wanted to see what their writing was like.  Intuition is a free short story available on Amazon, Smashwords and B&N that goes with a book I received for review, Intangible (move eyes downward). Another great way to try out a new author for free.

Received from Authors for review:

Won via the Goodreads First-reads program from St. Martin’s Griffin (Thank you, Jessica!).  I’ve read it already and I really liked it.  My review is going up soon…

Won from MiraInk/Harlequin UK ~ It pays to play on Twitter in the middle of the afternoon 😉  I still need to read the first one but I’ve had it on my TBR!!  I’m so excited I got this one!!! 

Won from My Shelf Confessions & Kindle Fever (Thank you!!!)  The actual cover I got is much prettier!  You must follow these girls, they have awesome blogs!

And last, but certainly not least…

Isn’t it awesome when someone thinks of you and offers to mail you a book just because they thought you’d like to read it?!?!  My super blogging friend Silverlight (Lisa, whatever!!) at Paranormal & Urban Fantasy Reviews and Goodies did just that!!  She noticed I made a comment on her review of Wicked As They Come, this crazy PNR/Steampunk book that is getting awesome reviews, and thought to send me her copy.  How fabulous is that?!?!?  And yes, go follow her, she gives great reviews and does posts about free eBooks 😀

  2. Goddess Interrupted and Fated look amazing!! Also, HoN has a graphic novel now? Wow! Would love to hear how that is. You have a new follower!

  3. You rock! I just got your book today, Ran to the P.O. Box and there was my package, I’m posting it for next week, Wondering how I’m going to top your amazing post!!

    So freakin’ excited that you got on the NG train and you also got J Meyers book! Congrats on the wins, I’ve never won anything 🙁 lol, someday… if I play more…
    I really need to look into Gina Koch’s books they look good!

    Thanks, sweets! Your a doll!

  4. Aw, that was nice of her to send you the book. I have to look into Darkness Falls, because it seems so familiar.

    Great IMM. And good luck with NetGalley- it can easily turn into a love-hate relationship. lol

  5. Glimpse looks really good! I just requested it! Everything looks great! Enjoy your books!

    Here is my IMM

    Happy reading!

  6. You got a lot of great looking books I haven’t heard much about. I want to start the Goddess series. I hope you like the sequel.

    You are so right. It is beyond awesome when someone thinks of you specifically and sends you a book. I’ve had that happen once and it was probably the best feeling I’ve had blogging. I’m actually reading the 3rd book in the bundle Jess @ Gone With the Words bought for me.

    Thanks for stopping by. I always love reading your comments. Happy Reading.

  7. netgalley is great but it’s also so easy to request a ton of book and not have time to read them. so beware. 🙂 i keep hearing great things about wicked as they come and i really need to pick it up. i haven’t read the gini koch series yet but admit that i always look at it when i am at the bookstore. another one to add to the list.
