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 16th October 2011
In My Mailbox is a weekly event 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 increase our awareness of all the new books coming out.
It also gives me a chance to be nosy and see what everyone else has got to read, and so gives me plenty of new books to pine after!
This week I got...
From the Library:
Woo-hoo! It's been a week of new Richelle Mead books! I just love anything this author writes- Vampire Academy is one of my all-time favourite series and I feel like I have been waiting for these books forever! I had pre-ordered them both, but then remembered that I have to save money and must not buy any more books, so I had to cancel them. It's been so frustrating seeing other bloggers reading these books and knowing that I have to wait weeks for the library to get them! Finally!
Succubus Revealed by Richelle Mead is the 6th and final installment of the Succubus series- such a fantastic urban fantasy series, funny and clever, with a feisty lead woman, and a heartbreaking love story, full of ups and downs. There are also vampires and their fondue parties, alcoholic angels, and demons galore. And Seth. *sighs*. I've read it already and love it- 4.5 of 5 stars, review to come.
Bloodlines by Richelle Mead. This is a spin off series from the Vampire Academy series featuring Sydney, Adrian and Jill. I can't wait to read this one.
Jenny Pox by JL Bryan. This is book 1 in the Supernaturals series and it looks fantastic. This is getting really good reviews, so I'm really excited to read it. This is free for kindle at the moment on Amazon.
That was all my books for this week- lots of reading to catch up on. What did you get this week?
