In My Mailbox #38

In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren.

Wow it’s been a little while because of Discovering Steampunk so I’ve done this post the easiest way I could think of. This is about 3 weeks worth of books and I’ve stopped accepting review requests for now as well. I have books 2 and 3 of Morganville in the post, I believe and I think it’s Arcadia Awakens from Templar as well, but after that, no more for a few months. I really need to catch up, both on review books and also on my personal books which I’ve barely had chance to glance at in a while.

Pretty nuts, right? Sorry for bad picture quality.. as usual. I’ve only got a crappy old Nokia for a camera! I may have to call this ‘the Rachel Caine IMM’. Haha.

Books for Review

  • Morganville Vampires Omnibus 2 (Morganville Vampires #4-6) by Rachel Caine | Goodreads
  • Last Breath (Morganville Vampires #11) by Rachel Caine | Goodreads
  • Working Stiff (Revivalist #1) by Rachel Caine | Goodreads
  • Flying Blind (The Dragon Diaries #1) by Deborah Cooke | Goodreads

All from Alison & Busby, of course. Thank you for those! I shall get to them very soon, they all look amazing. And you can’t see it in the picture but the omnibus has blue tinted page edges. LOVE! And: dragon shapeshifters! Yay!

Random Acts of Kindness

  • The Novice (Black Magician Trilogy #2) by Trudi Canavan | Goodreads
  • Stray (Shifters #1) by Rachel Vincent | Goodreads
  • Stolen (Women of the Otherworld #2) by Kelley Armstrong | Goodreads

The first two are from Sarah from Whispering Words and Stolen is from Hanna from Booking In Heels because she understands how much I adored Bitten. Thank you both so much! Can’t wait to start reading them when I’ve finally caught up! Particularly Stray and Stolen, still in an urban fantasy mood, but I do have The Magician’s Guild to go with The Novice when I get in the right mood.

Won in Giveaway

  • Son of the Shadows (Sevenwaters #2) by Juliet Marillier | Goodreads

This was from Simcha from SFF Chat as part of the Back to Books giveaway hop. Thank you! I’ve had book one for years and I really want to read the series but it’s pretty much out of print in the UK now so this is a big help.

Charity Shop Finds

  • The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson | Goodreads
  • Going Postal (Discworld #33) by Terry Pratchett | Goodreads
  • Monstrous Regiment (Discworld #31) by Terry Pratchett | Goodreads

I squealed a little when I found these. Especially the first two. And I’m always on the lookout for Pratchett!

That is two trips to The Works, not one. Think my hand would have fallen off carrying all of those! I’m not that mad. And of course, as I already had book one of Morganville and was sent books 4, 5, 6, and 11 for review, I had to go hunt down the rest. Where else but The Works? They always have them in. And I wasn’t wrong. Plus! Extra goodies! Couldn’t find books 2 or 3 of Morganville, or book 4 of Weather Wardens, well it was in the first Works trip I went on but I bought Delirium instead and in the second trip I couldn’t find it. And I really don’t like the Delirium cover but I couldn’t resist, I’d heard too many good things about it as a whole.
Ebooks

  • The Emperor’s Knife by Mazarkis Williams | Goodreads (NetGalley)
  • Pterippus: The Awakening By Kristl Thompson | Goodreads (Free from Smashwords with code)
  • Pyxis: The Discovery (Pyxis #1) by K.C. Neal | Goodreads (From author for review)
  • Jenny Pox (The Paranormals #1) by J.L. Bryan | Goodreads (Free for Kindle)

  • The Book of Lost Souls by Michelle Muto | Goodreads (From author for review)
  • Don’t Fear The Reaper by Michelle Muto | Goodreads (From author for review)

These were the last few I can accept for review for a fair while and they look absolutely fantastic! I shall be having K.C. Neal and Michelle Muto on the blog in November so long as nothing comes up between now and then and that’s going to be really great. And when I noticed Jenny Pox was free, after all of the great press J.L. Bryan has been getting, I had to snap it up. They all sound pretty great – check them out on Goodreads and hopefully I’ll have reviews up in the next month or so. And I might be a little in love with those covers. Some of those are a lot better looking than many book covers around at the moment!

There’s a lot coming up on the blog so keep stopping by. This week there’ll be a guest post and giveaway from the fantastic Revital Shiri-Horowits, author of Daughters of Iraq. Don’t miss it!

What did you get this week?
