In My Mailbox #25

In My Mailbox is a great meme from The Story Siren.  If you'd like to take part, visit The Story Siren's IMM page for further details.

I received four books this week through the mail including three bind-ups.  I'd never heard of a bind-up until recently and I think it's fab that I can buy three books in a series all printed in one book for the price of one paperback!  Bargain!  (and you know how much I love a bargain :-D)

NIGHTSHADE by Andrea Cremer

(from UK Book Tours with thanks to Lynsey)

SWEEP (Volume 1) by Cate Tiernan

(bind-up of the first three Sweep books - Book of Shadows, The Coven & Blood Witch)

SWEEP (Volume 2) by Cate Tiernan

(bind-up of Dark Magick, Awakening & Spellbound)

SWEEP (Volume 3) by Cate Tiernan

(bind-up of The Calling, Changeling & Strife)

I think there are another two bind-up's of this series due out later this year too so those should keep me busy and out of trouble for a while!

What did you get in your mailbox this week?

I hope you enjoy reading Nightshade! I can't wait for Wolfsbane. :) I haven't heard of the series by Cate Tiernan... I'm going to have to check them out! :)

A great mailbox! I loved Nightshade ...I hope you enjoy your books! :)

Briana said...

I loved Nightshade, so I hope you enjoy it! And I have the Sweep bind-ups in my TBR as well.

Happy reading! :)

Phanee said...

I love the covers of the three bind-ups! They're simple and very, very pretty! I love the colours! Hope you enjoy all your books! :)

Cliona said...

I love bind-ups. They're WAY better value!

Debra's Book Cafe said...

Fantastic haul! Yey to the Sweep books... The next one I think comes out in the middle of the year and the last at the end of the year I believe... The one that comes out soon has a beautiful blue cover (found it on amazon...) :-)

Mel said...

I have Nightshade on my TBR pile as well and I've heard so many good things about it! I will have to get round to reading it soon.

BooksforCompany said...

Oh wow!
I love it when they have more than one series in a book, sometimes scary though at it looks huge lol
Enjoy, l loved Nightshade

Small Review said...

Ooh, I want to read your reviews of these! All are on my TBR.

I'm not really sure what I think of bind up editions yet. I love that they're such a bargain, but usually they're big floppy paperbacks that get messed up easily and I'm crazy about keeping my books looking nice. If they're hardcovers, then the size just intimidates me because I'm a page wimp.

Nightshade is amazing and hope your going to enjoy it as much as I did! Have a great reading week!

Gina @ My Precious said...

Ok, I'm a big fan of a good deal, bind ups you say. Can I get a bind up in the US too?

Looks like you got some great books. I think the series books sound great - can't wait to hear about them.

Happy Easter!

Kate said...

I read Book of Shadows and The Coven a little over a year ago and loved them. I don't honestly know why I haven't kept up with the series.

Hope you enjoy all of your new books :)

Sally said...

Nightshade is a good book- I'm looking forward to the next one Wolfsbane coming out soon. Well done on your book bargains. Happy Easter!

Aisle B said...

I still have Nightshade to read... absolutely love the cover on that one. Yes I'm a proud coverholic!

Hey Karen,
Great IMM! I've got the first sweep book, had it for a while and can't wait to see what you think of it :) Donna

Carina said...

I want to read Nightshade so badly. Shame on me that I haven't even ordered it yet. :D But I will soon, especially since Wolfsbane will be released soon.
Oh, bind-ups really sound awesome! So much to read for so little money. Great. :D
I hope you'll enjoy your new novels!
