In My Mailbox

In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren, and is a way for everyone to show their new books for the week, including those bought, swapped, won, or received for review.


I haven't done one of these in awhile because I have so many books to catch up on I haven't bought any new ones. I'm still not caught up but that didn't stop me this week!
So away we go...............


Bought: The Dragon Factory by Jonathan Maberry (bk 2 from the Joe Ledger series)
Frostbite a werewolf tale by David Wellington
My Soul to Save & My Soul to Take by Rachel Vincent
Pallid Light - The Waking Dead by William Jones

  1. No new books for me this week. So many I've already bought and haven't been able to read yet, but that doesn't mean that when I find new ones I don't add them to my cart! ;) I'm really excited about Lover Mine on the 27th!

    I'll be back to read your review on Frostbite. I've never even heard of that book.

    Is today your birthday? Happy Birthday, Karen from all of the Dolls at PBD!

  2. You're gonna have to let me know what My Soul to Save and My Soul to Take is like. I love the Shifters series, its probably 2nd to the Otherworld for me! Frostbite looks interesting aswell.
    And thanks for the cupcake 'props', you're sweeeet! :-)

  7. When you get 'round to THE DRAGON FACTORY, I hope you enjoy it. There are also two free Joe Ledger short stories available online: “COUNTDOWN” is a prequel to PATIENT ZERO (http://us.macmillan.com/CMS400/uploadedFiles/COUNTDOWN_free.pdf) and “DEEP, DARK”, which takes place just before the second book, THE DRAGON FACTORY.

  10. Emma - you're gonna have to make a lot of pies and cupcakes to pay for that many books!!
    I'll have to check out the shifter series since there will be an ending....no more ongoing series!!

  11. Pallid Light makes me want to read it just from the cover alone.
    How long will it take you to get through that lot of books?

    ReplyDelete
  12. My husband will probably snag Pallid Light first. I have to read Patient Zero and then The Dragon Factory. I can read about one book a day but I haven't had too many days to read lately. I've been stuck in a YA paranormal bk loop for some reason so I hope to get back to some zombie stuff soon!
    Do you read the online Dead Meat series?
