In My Mailbox #8


IMM is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren and gives everyone an opportunity to showcase new books received during the week, whether they're bought or borrowed.

A good week for me in terms of books! I only bought three but it was library week so a bumper pile got picked up!

Bought


Fire and Thorns - Rae Carson (read this a while ago but wanted my own copy)

The Folding Knife - K. J. Parker (this one and the Spirit Thief were both bargains, I figured if I don't like them it hasn't cost me a fortune!)

The Spirit Thief - Rachel Aaron

From the library

Fated - Alyson Noel

Juliet Immortal - Stacey Jay

Abused Werewolf Rescue Group - Catherine Jinks

Our Tragic Universe - Scarlett Thomas

Blood Magic - Tessa Gratton

Uninvited - Liz Jensen

Butterfly Summer - Anne-Marie Conway

Immortal - Gillian Shields

Cloaked - Alex Flinn

Fly By Night - Frances Hardinge

The Devouring - Simon Holt

Unwind - Neal Shusterman

Not a bad haul and I didn't break the bank! What did you get this week?

Don't forget to enter the August New Release giveaway which finishes in a few days and look out for reviews this week of Girl Of Nightmares, The Grimm Legacy, Bad Faith and 666 Park Avenue!

  9. I got Juliet Immortal too this week , won it in a giveaway, have not read yet. ( I normally only read on my Kindle Fire, as i need the extra large font, lol) I will have to use a magnifying glass or get some reading glasses. its so hard to read physical books, print is too small in them. :( Spoiled now with my Fire, can read from across the room just about the font can be made so big, lol
    Have fun with those.
