In My Mailbox #2

In My Mailbox is a neat meme hosted by The Story Siren where we can celebrate some of the great books and treats we've received over the week. I'm a little giddy this week. Ok ALOT giddy. I've been in a book drought for the last 2 months and I thought I'd never be able to buy the books I wanted without taking out a 2nd mortgage on my house. It seemed that there was always new books coming into the house - either through the mail or from the store and suddenly it just STOPPED. So this week has been kind of crazy and is seriously NOT the norm at the moment. I'm almost positive once the euphoria of new books and unrestrained purchasing is over, I'll feel a little queasy but as I look over my treasures ... I just don't seem to care  MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA    (click title for more)

The Book Hour said...

Wow! That is a GREAT week! :-) I'm actually really excited to hear that Ms Krinard is returning to her WOLF books (as supposed to those vampy novels), although the ARC reviews seem a little disappointing. It will be nice to see what you think. I love the website by the way! It looks really cool!

Lyndsey said...

Um.... I think I may hate you a little bit today. I pretty much want every one of the books you bought this week lol!! and you bought pretty HBs. Cant wait to hear what theyre like. xx

Jenny said...

Wow, you did some damage this week, well done! That often happens to me as well, I go for just one new release and 5 more jump into my arms completely unprovoked. Weird. You got great ones though, can't wait for your reviews!

Kelli (I'd So Rather Be Reading) said...

Awesome books this week! NetGalley is the best and I bought a lot of the same ones as you...also just meant to buy Halo but you know how that goes...

Sab H. said...

Wow! That's like the best Paranormal combo I've ever seen LOL! I loved Clockwork and Paranormalcy and I'm excited to read Halo. Enjoy!

Inspired Kathy said...

Wow! What great books!

Your books look fabulous! There are so many that are still on my wish list. I'm jealous : )

Just Your Typical Book Blog said...

You got a lot of great books this week! Clockwork Angel was sooo good! Enjoy :)

Liz said...

You bought lots of great stuff this week! I can't wait to hear what you think of all of it.

Candace said...

Holy cow! I think going so long without buying books makes us go crazy. I went to the bookstore and wasn't planning to buy anything, just LOOK at Nevermore because it was the only new release I didn't already have coming. They didn't have Nevermore (WTH?!) but they had an amazing clearance.
Anyway, you have a GREAT stack of books to read! Oh, and netgalley is awesome!

aprilnichole.com said...

Thanks for commenting on my IMM. It looks like you got a lot of good stuff. Happy reading! :)

Lillie (AliseOnLife) said...

LOL, I'm the same way in a bookstore myself! I've not read any of the Jennifer Rardin books, but they always catch my eye when I see them in the library. I'd love to hear how you like them.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, and Happy Reading to you!

Tabitha said...

LOL!! I can't go into a bookstore with any money anymore. :) I buy waaay too much. :)

Great haul, though!! Happy reading!

Jenny N. said...

You bought some nice books, I know how you feel. Its so hard to resist when in a book store. Hope you enjoy your new books!

Chrissie said...

You got so many good books this week! Hope you enjoy them all :)

prophecygirl said...

Ooh, a finished copy of Firelight!! I loved it, and I hope you do too :)

Paranormalcy is on the way to me, and I also got Nevermore this week. Can't wait to get stuck into that one.

Have a great week!

chelleyreads said...

WOW!! Really great books this week- lucky you! I'm also looking forward to read Firlight, Paranormalcy, and Halo. I'm might want to read Waking the Witch and Clockwork Angel, so looking forward to your reviews!

Enjoy!

*jaw dropping at all the titles I wish I had* Infinite Days, Halo,
Nevermore, Paranormalcy, Firelight,
Clockwork Angel. Happy reading (they all sounds like great books). ^_^

pussreboots said...

Enjoy your books. I purchased two and received one.

-k said...

Kelley Armstrong is one of my favourite authors (who is amazingly from a small town near where I live too) and I cannot wait to read Waking the Witch.
I also really want to read the Glass novels that Snyder has; I own the first and second though I have yet to read them.
Thanks for checking out my IMM.
Great books this week and hapy reading!

Corrine said...

I'm in the same boat with you... I should never be trusted in a bookstore by myself either. My fiance can attest to that, as he grins and says "I've heard that before" (when I say well I'll be good, I'll only buy one. Or 2.) haha.

I love your mailbox this week... I have most of these books, or they are ordered, or on my wishlist... and I LOVE Kelley Armstrong's books so I hope you enjoy them as well! (Jennifer Rardin is pretty good too!) :) Happy reading!! :D

Cialina said...

Haha! Wow. No books at all? ME too actually, except I didn't bother with a post. I just started college, which explains my lack of books. :(

I hope you get books this coming week though!

Lisa R/alterlisa said...

Lovely pile of books. I see that each and everyone is either in my pile or on my wishlist.
Hey, saw you had stopped by and wanted to return the trip and wish you a great weekend! I am now following you!
