In My Mailbox (June 26th, 2011)

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren (inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie) and explores the content of your mailbox.

So, this is a few weeks worth of books: a few fantastic weeks worth of books.  Let's start off with the gem of the month:

THE A SONG OF FIRE AND ICE BOX SET by George R. R. Martin - Isn't it lovely and shiny and brilliant?  I really really want to start reading this asap, but am also nervous to start it.  The Game of Thrones tv show was insanely addictive and I have a feeling the books will be just as good!

  • Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
  • Exile by Rebecca Lim - This was brilliant.  Brilliant, I say! Y'all need to read Mercy already!
  • Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins - I've wanted this for ages but never wanted to buy the UK paperback (as it is absolutely hideous).  So, now that the US paperback is out, I thought I'd get me one!
  • Darkness Becomes Her by Kelly Keaton - Bought this on the strength of Jenny's review.  Hope it lives up to the hype!
  • Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini - I know everyone and their mother has been talking about this book, so I am mildly curious about it...
  • Blood Magic by Tessa Gratton - I bought this purely on the strength of Maggie Stiefvater's blurb.  It had better be fantastic, as I've bought the hardcover.

Books for Review:
From Razor Bill:
From Chicken House:
From Hodder and Stoughton:

In short, I've gotten some FABULOUS books lately.  Can't wait to read them all!

So, let me know what's been in your mailbox!


  1. I've heard mixed reviews about the Martin books, some say it is too much information to focus on and others say they are over the top fantastic. Hex Hall was just awesome, as was Demonglass and cannot wait for the third book. Enjoy!

  2. Wow you really really have got some fantastci books there - ENJOY :D

  3. Ooh great books! Anna and the French Kiss is awesome, and so is Hex Hall! (agree about the UK cover though, I have it but I wish I had the US one :/). Happy reading :).

  4. I loved Anna and the French Kiss! You got some awesome books this week and i hope you enjoy them! Here's My IMM if you get the chance to check it out! Happy reading!

  8. You have some awesome books here. I loved Anna and the French Kiss (as everyone has). I want to read Brother/Sister. I saw it on the shelf this week, but had to hold out, I had already gone overboard with the book buying.

    Enjoy your box set! Are you excited that you have them all so you don't have to wait to get the next one? That is the best feeling.

    Happy Reading!

  9. Umm...incredible IMM! lol. All amazing books! I read The Game of Thrones a long time ago and LOVED it! I started the second book but never finished it but I'm considering finishing it so I can watch the show! :)

    My IMM is here:

  10. You have SO MANY great books in your future. I absolutely adored the Tiger series, and Rockoholic, and Anna and the French Kiss and Starcrossed and Blood Magic! Hope you love them all too :)
