In My Mailbox (#16)

Donna's IMM hosted by Kristi @ The Story Siren

A MASSIVE thank you to Lesley My Keeper Shelf for the swaps and the fab RAK.

Forever  by Maggie Stiefvater
The Vampire Stalker by Allison Van Diepen for UK Swap's Travelling Book

To Review:
Half-Blood by Jennifer Armentrout 
Stealing Phoenix by Joss Stirling

Wow! You don't know how excited I was to receive all of these books for review. Firstly, I'd like to say a MASSIVE thank you Spencer Hill Press for shipping Half-Blood over to me. I know how expensive shipping is but the fact they wanted me to review it, was fantastic. 

Secondly, *Screams* Stealing Phoenix! I screamed when Oxford Publishing emailed me asking me to review this book. I was a huge fan of Finding Sky so to get Stealing Phoenix is phenomenal. Oohh and its signed by the author too. ;) 

And last by not least, Daughter of Smoke and Bone was a huge surprise waiting for me in my mailbox. I didn't even know it was coming so I was gob-smacked when I got it, it looks so good. Thank you H&S! 

A Beautiful Dark by Jocelyn Davies (see review)
Tris and Izzie by Mettie Ivie Harrison (see review)
The Mephisto Covenant by Trinity Faegen

Thank you to NetGalley, Egmont & HarperCollins.

That's it for me this week. Come back next week! :)

Please, Donna. The misused word "brought" (instead of BOUGHT) makes me cry a little inside.

That aside, you both got such great books this week! I just read A Need So Beautiful - you must read it. I'm reading Starcrossed right now, only like 6 pages in since I keep getting distracted. :P

Happy reading.

Book Passion for Life said...

Lol thanks Cass - I didn't even notice! :)

Jessica ( frellathon ) said...

Wow great books there.

Braiden said...

Sweet books ladies! I had contacted Spencer Hill Press requesting Half-Blood and got a reply....but I guess they will only sent it overseas if the blog has lots of followers. Well at least more than 308 the number I have.

Mel said...

Great books there - how do you fit in the time to read all these books?! I'm jealous! :)

Liz. R said...

Ooh you lucky things! Half-Blood looks amazing, I'm so jealous you got it! And Stealing Phoenix too. I really loved Starcrossed (I think the ARC cover is the best one :P) and Hereafter looks great too. Happy reading, both of you!

Alexa said...

Wow that was full of a ton of great books, most of which I really want to read. I hope you both enjoy reading all of those stories.

I'm not that into most YA books so I am not familiar with these titles, though some of the covers are amazing! Enjoy!
