For What It's Worth

In My Mailbox

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren to spotlight what books we've received for the week.

I haven’t bought any books in a few months so I don’t feel too guilty about my purchases this week. 
Almost all adult. I think I’m a little burned out on YA right now and I’m trying to mix up my reading genres a little more to avoid reading slumps.



Sacrificial Magic (Downside Ghosts book #4) by Stacia Kane – I already read this on Netgalley already but the series is a favorite of mine and I want to make sure it sells lots of books so I bought it to add to my collection. ~goodreads

The Darkest Seduction  (Lords of the Underworld #9) by Gena Showalter – I’ve been waiting a long time for Paris’s book. I am a tad afraid to read it though. I’m hearing mixed opinions. ~goodreads

Kindling the Moon (Arcadia Bell #1) by Jenn Bennett – Another series I’ve heard great things about. ~goodreads

The Iron Duke (Iron Seas #1) by Meljean Brook – I’ve been wanting to read this one for a long time so I was happy to see that my bookstore finally had it in stock. ~goodreads

Wicked As They Come (Blud #1) by Delilah S. Dawson - “Have you ever heard of a Bludman? They’re rather like you and me—only more fabulous, immortal, and mostly indestructible. (They’re also very good kissers.)”  Described as part paranormal and part steampunk, Wicked As They Come sounds really fun! It’s been getting rave reviews too. ~goodreads

OK Don’t judge me on this next one. I am aware of the horrible cover. But it was this review on Fiction Vixen’s blog that convinced me.

Sheltered by Charlotte Stein ~goodreads


My Life As a White Trash Zombie (White Trash Zombie #1) by Diana Rowland – No explanation needed. The title and cover say it all. Can’t wait o read it! ~goodreads

Thank you to Pam from Midnyte Reader for loaning me this one.


Velveteen by Danny Marks – I’m reading this one now and hope to finish it up this week. ~goodreads

That should keep me busy for awhile. What did you guys get this week?


  1. Wicked As They Come is absolutely phenomenal! I just finished it yesterday and ended up rating it five hearts and giving it my Kat's Meow Award. (That's pretty much the highest thing my blog can give a book.) Let me put it this way: I put it on my Kindle to read and now I want a physical copy so I can have my mom read it too since she isn't quite as tech savvy and the Kindle intimidates her. (Plus, -that cover-! *nod*)

    Anyway, looks like you had a fantastic week. I hope the next is just as good to you. :)

    1. I think that might be my next one to read. It looks so off the wall unique and fun. I almost downloaded it to my Kindle but for some reason I knew I would want the pb

  2. Meant no way as an insult to her, but the girl on the front of My Life as a White Trash Zombie looks very like Emili Sande.

    1. WOW!! Yes it does. It's such an outrageous cover. Compelling, gross, pretty all wrapped into one.

  3. I won't judge the cover since I've done a bit of the same with my own reading and tried a book with a similar cover. Variety is always good!

  4. I've just finished The Iron Duke and it is brilliant - a bit of everything in there. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

  5. hope u enjoy alll

    iron duke and wicked as they come has been on my wishlist a while ^^

  6. Hopefully switching it up with help you to avoid a reading slump! I hate those.

    Also, I really need to catch up on the Downside Ghosts series by Stacia Kane. I really enjoyed the first book when I read it a year or so ago, and I've meant to jump back into the series ever since!

  7. I hope you enjoy everything you got this week. Here's my IMM!
