In My Mailbox #30

The idea behind In My Mailbox is to share any books you get your hands on, be they borrowed, bought, gifted, received for review, with your readers. I particularly like this meme because I’m often picking up books that don’t get read, at least for a while. It’s nice to spotlight them before they are shoved into some corner of my shelf to gather dust. Hosted by The Story Siren.

A quiet week this week. Technically the three I bought for myself were last Sunday but I’d already done the In My Mailbox post by then. Kinda glad I waited now. I am still waiting for a few things which I don’t have a clue when they will arrive but that’s the postal system for you.

Bought For Myself

Insurrection by Robyn Young | Goodreads

The Darling Strumpet by Gillian Bagwell | Goodreads

The Red Queen (The Cousins’ War #2) by Philippa Gregory | Goodreads

These are the three I picked up in Asda last Sunday to cheer myself up (I’m on a diet so I’d rather break my book ban than my chocolate ban though tell that to the Rocky Road ice cream I had last night, nomnom). They were in the 3 for £10 offer, which I always kid myself is saving money in the long run, but yeah. I was ecstaticly happy to find The Darling Strumpet in the offer as that was the one I was most craving, and The Red Queen wasn’t a bad find either the only Gregory books I’m missing now that I care about are the new one and Virgin’s Lover. Woot. And Insurrection was a new find. It’s another historical one set in the 1200s in Scotland I believe? It sounds very interesting anyway, and it’s a chunky one. Book based retail therapy for the win.

Won In Giveaways

Raised by Wolves (Raised by Wolves #1) by Jennifer Lynn Barnes | Goodreads

I won this one in Karina‘s UK & EU Summer Hop giveaway so thank you very much to her for that one. I had been craving werewolf fiction so something new I’ve never heard of could be just what I need! This one sounds fantastic. I think I’m team werewolf. I always want the girl to get the werewolf, I must be, right? And if you look verry carefully you can see my ‘just got out of bed’ distorted face in the shiny shiny cover. 😉

Received For Review

Married With Zombies (Living with the Dead #1) by Jesse Petersen | Goodreads

Sent by the publisher (Simon & Schuster) for review by request. As mentioned the other week, they’d sent over the second two in this series and I’d requested book one as I couldn’t find it in the library. It turned up early this week so thank you very much for that. I’ll hopefully get to it very soon.

Did you get anything interesting this week?
