In My Mailbox 28th August 2011

In My Mailbox is a weekly event hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren where we can talk about all the books that we received this past week, whether bought, borrowed or given for review.
I got some really good books this week-

From the Library:

  • Shadows On The Moon by Zoe Marriott. I have loved the previous books by this author, so I really want to read it. I entered every contest going to try to win a copy of this but no such luck! This is about a girl who can assume different faces to disguise herself and uses this power to try to avenge her murdered family.


  • Supernaturally by Kiersten White. This is the sequel to Paranormalcy which was so much fun to read that I couldn't wait for this next one to be published in the UK. I'm reading this one next, Evie and Lend= awww!

  • Juliet Immortal by Stacey Jay. This is a fairly new book that I thought sounded really interesting. The tag line is "The greatest love story ever told is a lie" and the blurb on the back says that it tells how Juliet's story has always been mis-told and that Juliet was actually murdered by Romeo so that he could attain immortality. Sounds pretty intriguing!


  • Passing Strange by Daniel Waters. This is book 3 in the Generation Strange series. I bought books 2 and 3 last week, and they sound so good, I thought I might as well get this one as well. I haven't read many zombie books yet but I'm always drawn to them!
Swapped through UK website Read It Swap It

For Review:

  • Life Eternal by Yvonne Woon. This is the next book in the Dead Beautiful series. I think I have forgotten completely how the first book ended so I'll need to check up book 1 before I start this one.
This is published in February. Thanks to Hyperion and Netgalley for giving me a copy of this book.

  • Every Other Day by Jennifer Lynn Barnes. When I finished reading Trial by Fire by this author there was a paragraph in the back to say that she was working on her next book- this one. I thought it sounded fantastic, and I was eagerly awaiting it coming out. It sounds really original, about a high school girl who is human, but every other day turns into a powerful demon hunter with killer instincts.
This is published in December. Thanks to Egmont and Netgalley for giving me a copy of this book.

  • POD by Stephen Wallenfels. This looks like a post-alien-invasion sci-fi gem. I like the sound of this book because it looks like a survival story with heart and not just an action thriller. I'll let you know when I read it!
I was sent this thanks to the hard work of Emma and Carly at UK Book Tours.
Thanks guys!

Those were all the books that I got to read this week. I'm really excited to read all of them. What did you get in your mailbox?
Happy reading!
