In My Mailbox 15th May 2011

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren, where we can show off all the books we got our hands on during the week, whether bought, borrowed, or given for review. This feature was started to increase interaction between bloggers and increase awareness of some of the new book titles coming out.

This week was another slow book week. I got...

I had a good rummage through the 3 books for £5 offers at The Works bookshop again and bought
  • Blood Bound and Iron Kissed by Patricia Briggs. These are books 2 and 3 from the Mercedes Thompson series which I have wanted to read for absolutely ages. I was a little annoyed that they didn't have book 1 in stock, as it always helps to read the first book first, but it means that I'll keep having to go in there and checking to see if it's come in (whilst trying not to buy any more books- I'm on a book buying ban!) This is an urban fantasy series about shifters.
  • Masquerade by Melissa De La Cruz. This is book 2 in the Blue Bloods series (vampires and high society-oh yeah). I have book 1 already but still haven't gotten around to reading it yet.


  • Mercy by Rebecca Lim. I have a friend at work who has been nagging me for ages to read this book, and it looks very good. This is a YA title about angels. That's all I really know about it! (The girl's feet on the cover look really huge to me- I'm assuming it's a girl. I must just have really tiny feet!)

So, those were the books I got this week- what did you get?


  1. I love the Patricia Briggs series, that's a good bargain from The Works I think its a bit hit and miss when you go in there sometimes I come out with loads of bargains and sometimes none!

  2. Ooh, nice list. Mercy had a gorgeous cover. Enjoy your reading!

  3. Mercy is one that I keep seeing pop up on blogs and I'd love to read it.

    Enjoy your books!

  4. I have a well read copy of Moon Called I could send you if you want it? I love her character development though the plots don't really get going until book 2.

  5. Ellie- wow thankyou! That's so generous of you! I'm going to take you up on that, I'll message you.

  6. I love the cover for Masquerade. So pretty.

    RYN: I know! The library is so great but then you have to take everything back! Hate that. Thanks for stopping by!

  7. You'll love the Mercy Thompson series! I have every book and still re-read them! Great haul this week and a bargain! ;)

  8. I've not read any of these books before but I've heard a lot about the Blue Bloods series - all positive stuff, by the way :) And this cover is much less creepier than the first

    Enjoy :)

  9. Great books this week. I have Mercy on my tbr pile.
    I love the Patricia Briggs books.
    Happy reading.

  10. The Works is just so tempting isn't it!
    Happy reading
