In My Mailbox 5th February 2012

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 wasn't expecting to get any books this week, but I actually ended up having a pretty good week. I got-

Bought for kindle:

  • Wings of the Wicked by Courtney Allison Moulton. This is the sequel to Angelfire which I read and enjoyed last year. I'm looking forward to reading this one, and getting back into this action-packed series again. Plus I'm a complete sucker for a forbidden romance story!

  • Pyxis by K.C Neal. I keep seeing this about the blogosphere lately, and although I'm not totally sure what it's about, it was very cheap for kindle on Amazon so I will give it a shot. I seem to be loading my kindle up at the moment- for such a time when I run out of anything to read!

From the library:

  • Hallowed by Cynthia Hand. This is the sequel to Unearthly which has to be one of the best (if not the best) of the angel stories out there at the moment. I absolutely couldn't wait to get hold of this one (Tucker- I love you!). Yay!

  • Fated by Sarah Alderson. I really loved Hunting Lila by this author, and this new book about demons, promises to be just as good. This lady can really write a good love story- can't wait to read this one either.


Wow- I've been a lucky girl for prizes this week. Amber over at Down the Rabbit Hole put me onto the Bout of Books readathon held in January, which was great fun, and I not only connected with a bunch of other bloggers, but I also won a giveaway hosted by Joli at Actin' Up With Books for a book of my choice.
  • I chose Warped by Maurissa Guibord after reading a blog post about it, and adding it to my wishlist. This sounds like a really great book about a magical unicorn tapestry, and going back in time.
Seriously read the Goodreads synopsis and tell me you don't want to read this!
Thank you Joli!

  • I also won a signed copy of Switched by Amanda Hocking from a giveaway hosted by Asheley of Into the Hall of Books, which I'm really excited about. This is book 1 in the Trylle trilogy, about changelings (I think), and there is a lot of good hype about these books and this author. I can't wait to read this one, but in the meantime I'm happy just staring at the cover- how gorgeous is this book?!
Thank you Asheley!

Those were the books I got this week. What did you get?
Happy reading!


  1. I really enjoyed Fated, it was just really easy to read and action packed right from the beginning.

    Enjoy your books, Great IMM! :D

  2. That's a great lot of books!
    I have Switched on my tbr pile too and I hear great things about Sarah Alderson's book :)

  3. Hallowed is so so good!! I loved it! And Fated <3 <3 Oh, I ordered it last week! I can't wait to have this book in my hands!! :) :) Awesome mailbox! :) ;)

  4. Oh, I want to read Fated! And Switched has a beautiful cover - congratulations on winning!

  5. Hey!! You're so welcome for Switched! I'm grateful to St Martin's Press for allowing me to run that giveaway internationally! That cover IS amazing, so so beautiful. I can't stop starting at it either. And wow, your Hallowed cover is pretty. Sometimes I can't get over how different the covers are from here to there, and y'all get some sometimes that are way prettier than ours!

    I read Pyxis and I really liked it! It is a quick, fun read and I'll definitely be reading book two when it comes out soon. Hopefully you'll like it!

  6. Great mailbox! I really want to read Switched, it looks pretty good. You can check out my IMM if you want. Happy Reading :)
