My name is Sally, and I'm completely addicted to stories- whether it be through books, films or television series.
I'm not a teenager but I love reading YA books and my current favourite genres are dystopian, magic, paranormal or fantasy, with some contemporary and historical. But I also read urban fantasy books, and sci-fi (or pretty much anything if you tell me it's good!). However, I do believe that no story is whole without a good romance plot in it, because (to quote Stephenie Meyer here) "love is the best part of any story".

In My Mailbox 31st July 2011
In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren, where book bloggers can talk about the books they've gotten the past week- whether bought, borrowed, swapped or given for review. This feature was started to increase interaction between bloggers and improve our awareness of all the new books coming out.
I got some great books this week- and I'm really looking forward to reading them (if I find time!)
Hollowland by Amanda Hocking. (kindle edition). Ok, I've bought another one of Amanda Hocking's books, and I still haven't read ANY of them yet, but I read some really positive reviews of this book this week, and her books are so cheap at the moment. This author is self-published but I heard a rumour that a publisher is now buying her books, so I thought I'd buy her books now before the price goes up. This sounds really good though, about zombies (I think!)
From the Library:
All my reservations seem to have come in all at once! This week I picked up
Blood Magic by Tessa Gratton. I've seen this about on the blogs- about witches.
The Demon's Surrender by Sarah Rees Brennan. This is Book 3 in the Demon's Lexicon trilogy. I'm looking forward to reading the final book in this series, love these characters! There are demons and battles between good and evil magicians.
Forgotten by Cat Patrick. This sounds weird but interesting, and it's getting good reviews. It sounds a little like the film 50 First Dates (Drew Barrymore), about a girl who cannot remember her past. I want to read this to see how that will work!
Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini. I love the look of this book too, it's YA and full of Greek mythology and a forbidden romance. I didn't realise before I got it though how big it is- it's 500 odd pages! Can't wait to read it though.
Graveminder by Melissa Marr. I got this mainly because it's by Melissa Marr and it's not about faeries! Sounds spooky and cool.
Undercurrent by Tricia Rayburn. Sequel to Siren. Awww- I love nerdy romantic hero Simon, so I want to read about this cute couple again!
Tiger's Curse by Colleen Houck. I've heard some mixed things about these books, but I think it sounds a bit different, and I want to make up my own mind about it.
Some really fantastic books this week, lots of reading to get stuck into. Love all my books!
