In my mailbox 3,4,5,6,7,8

This is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren, where we talk about the books we got the last week.

I have not done this in a while, so this haul is for a lot of weeks. But aside from books in Norwegian, I have not bought a lot of books lately. I am trying to dig into my TBR - pile, which consists of a lot of old books that I bought a long time ago.

Anyway, here are the books:

Kelly Keaton: Darkness becomes her (Bought)
Caitlin Kittredge: The Iron Thorn (Bought)
Elizabeth Woods: Choker (Bought)
Jill Mansell: To the moon and back ( Review copy)
Jana Oliver: Forsaken; The Demon Trappers (Bought)
Karen Mahoney: The Iron Witch (Bought)
Louise Rennison: Withering Tights (Review copy)
Brenda Yovanoff : The Replacement (Bought)

I have already started The Iron Thorn and The Iron Witch, and so far I am loving them. The review of The Iron Witch will be up shortly, since I only have a few pages left in the book.

I also subscribe to a series called Nocturne, where they are publishing a lot of American bestsellers in Norwegian. I get two books in the mail every month. These are the books I got in that series lately.
Gena Showalter: The Darkest Night ( Bought)
Gena Showalter: The Darkest Kiss (Bought)
Maggie Shayne: Twilight Phantasies (Bought)
Rachel Vincent: Stray (Bought)

I have already read The Darkest Night, the review for this will also be posted on my blog. And I am very much looking forward to reading Stray, since I have heard great things about that series.

And I did get some titles to review from Netgalley, but I have had trouble reading some of them since the button where we can download the titles to our kindle have been gone. I have ordered a new mobilphone, and I believe I can read galleys on that. I truly hope so.
Here are the titles:
Christina Shea: Smuggled
Amanda Stevens: The Restorer
Colleen Gleason: The Vampire Voss
Colleen Gleason: The Vampire Dimitri
Brianna Karp: The Girl's Guide to Homelessness
Maggie Shayne: Twilight Prophecy
Michele Hauf: Forever vampire
Aimée Carter: The Goddess Test
Jon S. Lewis: Invasion
Anna Sheehan: A long, long sleep
Jordan Dane: In the arms of stone angels
Francisco Goldman: Say her name
Lauren Myracle: Shine
L.A. Weatherly: Angel burn

I am going to the London Book Fair in april, and plan to bring my kindle along and do a lot of reading then.

There has been some controversy surrounding the In My Mailbox meme. To me it is a great way of showcasing books and authors. I have bought a lot of books that I have heard about through other bloggers' in my mailbox - posts.

Have a great sunday. P.S: What did you get in your mailbox?

You've got some fantastic books there. The Iron Thorn sounds really interesting. The Iron Witch, Choker and Darkness Becomes Her. All books I've received recently too. I hope you enjoy them all.

Tons of awesome books! I have The Iron Witch, but I haven't started it yet! And Choker is a good book!

Miss Page-Turner said...

You got that many books?! Wow! I still need to read Forsaken, but really liked Darkness Becomes Her:) Enjoy your new reads!

You can find my IMM post here !

Wow, you got a lot of e-galleys from NetGalley! I signed up for it already but I haven't requested for any books because I feel like I won't have time to read them and I don't want to be pressured by a bigger TBR pile. You're right about IMM though, I feel the same way about it. I do IMM posts to keep track of the books that I buy or receive as presents.
