In My Mailbox (July 24th, 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.

I got some fantastic books over the past couple of weeks - books that I have been longing for since... well, it feels like since the dawn of time, so you understand my excitement.

  • Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead - I ordered the US hardback of this book because I really wanted the face!covers.  I was rather floored by how gigantic this book is - if wielded as a weapon, it could do some serious damage! 
  • Pure Blood by Caitlin Kittredge - I really enjoyed the first book in this series, and so took the initiative to actually buy the next book in the series.
  • Liesl & Po by Lauren Oliver - Received for review from Hodder & Stoughton - Yay! The new Lauren Oliver book!  Hodder also sent along a lovely cut-out puppet thingy.  Can't wait to read this!
  • Forever by Maggie Stiefvater - OH MY YAY!

  • Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor - Received for review from Hodder & Stoughton - I read this and absolutely ADORED it.  Absolutely everything I could ever hope for and just... yeah, fantastic.
  • Our Lady of Darkness by Fritz Leiber - This was a gift from my mother. She used to be very good buds with Fritz and really thinks I'll love his books.  Looking forward to reading it!
  • Hunter's Prayer by Lilith Saintcrow - I wasn't over the moon about the first book in this series, but in Lilith I trust.

  • Crypt: The Gallows Curse by Andrew Hammond - Received for review from Headline
  • Delirium by Lauren Oliver - Received from Hodder & Stoughton - This is the new UK paperback of Delirium (read my review here), and while I'm not in love with the cover the book is fantastic!
  • Shady Lady by Ann Aguirre - I haven't started this particular series yet, but in Ann Aguirre I trust.

  • A Dance with Dragons by George R. R. Martin - MY MOTHER IS AWESOME AND GOT ME A SIGNED COPY OF THIS! I wish I had proper pictures of this to show you... but you'll just have to take me for my word! 
And that's all!  Daughter of Smoke and Bone was the biggest surprise - wasn't expecting to get it, nor was I expecting to love it.  A Dance with Dragons was also a huge surprise - I knew I'd get a copy eventually, but a signed one?  Never would have guessed!

*Off to check out other IMM posts*

  8. I LOVED Daughter of Smoke and Bone as well. :)

    Hah! I actually don't have any of the Vampire Academy books and I need to remedy that. It is my favorite paranormal series. I'll keep in mind that I can also substitute Last Sacrifice as a weapon.

  9. You have a nice list of books in your mailbox this week. I love the VA series, I am so sad that it has ended. LoL
    Happy Reading,
