In My Mailbox 4th December 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 to increase our awareness of all the new books coming out.

I got a much smaller haul of books this week (thank goodness- It gives me a chance to try and catch up!)
In this case though, it's definitely quality over quantity! I got:

From the library:

  • It finally came in! Bleeding Hearts by Alyxandra Harvey is book 4 in the fantastic Drake Chronicles about a family of vampires, their battles, and the people falling in love with them. These books so far have all been romantic, funny, and clever.

For review:

  • New Girl by Paige Harbison. This is about a girl who moves to a new school- a prestigious academy- where a place had only opened up for her after the sudden death of another girl. The main character finds herself struggling to fill the shoes of the dead girl. This is described as a modern day high school re-telling of Daphne DuMaurier's fantastic Rebecca. I HAD to read this!
Thanks to Harlequin publishers and Netgalley for the review copy.
This is due to be published in Janaury 2012

That was all I got this week but both are books that I'm dying to read soon.
What did you get in your mailbox? Happy reading!

  11. I didn't love the Drake Chronicles in the beginning, but they really grew on me. They're so addictive! And now I'm pining for the fourth book, so envious that you already have it :D And New Girl seems awesome, I just got it as well.

    Have a fabulous reading week, Sally!
