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!
What did you get this week?
Happy reading!


  1. I hope you enjoy Blood Magic, I read it a few weeks back and really enjoyed it :)

    Graveminder is on my wanted list too.

  2. I bought Graveminder purely because it's Melissa Marr, too. And I still haven't read book 2 in the Demon's series: I need to get a move on!

  3. awesome books! I can honeslty say that Starcrossed, Forgotten and Blood Magic are all awesome! :D hope you enjoy!

  4. Starcrossed looks so awesome! And I saw Blood Magic around last week and really want to read that too! I hope you enjoy them! Here's my IMM if you want to check it out! Happy reading!
