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 23rd October 2011
In My Mailbox is a weekly event hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren where we can show which books we received during the week- whether bought, borrowed or given for review.
It was my birthday this week! And I got-
Rampant by Diana Peterfreund. Book 1 in the Killer Unicorns series
Ripple by Mandy Hubbard. I think this is a mermaid romance, but I like Mandy Hubbard's writing and this sounds pretty good.
Touch Of Frost by Jennifer Estep. This is book 1 in the Mythos Academy series, and this one looks pretty good as well. I haven't read anything by this author before but have been meaning to.
Living Dead Girl by Elizabeth Scott. This is a modern contemporary story about a young girl who is kidnapped.
Stay by Deb Caletti. About a girl in an abusive relationship. I don't tend to read a lot of contemporary novels but this one and Living Dead Girl have been on my wishlist since I read Kate's review of them on That Book Blog. I can't wait to read these now.
Tiger's Quest and Tiger's Curse by Colleen Houck. I have already read both of these on audiobook but I loved them so much that I wanted paper copies of them, so that I could re-read my favourite parts.
My Soul To Steal by Rachel Vincent. Book 4 in the Soul Screamers series. I really love this series and had to buy this book because I couldn't wait!
Dearly Departed by Lia Habel. This is a futuristic steampunk story. This is set in 2195 in a high-tech nation where the manners and fashion is modelled on old victorian times- and there are zombies. This sounds really cool, and I wanted to read it ever since I first heard about it.
Thanks to Random House Publishing and Netgalley for the review copy.
Something Witchy This Way Comes by Veronica Blade. A teenage witch story about a girl who discovers that she has magical powers. Received direct from the publisher with thanks.
Those were all the books I got this week- some fantastic books I know, and I'm looking forward to reading them. What did you get in your mailbox?
