In My Mailbox #30

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.

Did I say last week that I wouldn't have much to show you this week?  Well, I didn't think I would, but I was not expecting a package full of awesomeness from Bloomsbury to arrive!


Out for Blood by Alyxandra Harvey (Drake Chronicles #3)
Fallen Grace by Mary Hooper
Mad Love by Suzanne Selfors


The Folk Keeper by Franny Billingsley
Flawless by Lara Chapman
Captivate by Carrie Jones

I received all six of the above from Bloomsbury who are just totally amazing!  Thank you so much!


My Love Lies Bleeding by Alyxandra Harvey (Drake Chronicles #1)
Blood Feud by Alyxandra Harvey (Drake Chronicles #2)

Whilst I was reading the notes that Bloomsbury sent with the books, I noticed that Out for Blood was the third in the Drake Chronicles series and as I don't like to read books out of order in a series, I did a quick check on Amazon Marketplace and ordered the first two for just £5.75 including postage!  Bargain of the week LOL.


Forgive my Fins by Tera Lyn Childs

I received this one for a blog tour I'm taking part in at the end of June, run by the fabulous Templar Publishing. This is the second copy of this book they've had to send out to me as the first one sadly didn't make it here. I've been stalking the postman for weeks as I'm really looking forward to getting my teeth into this one.  Thank you Leo and Templar!

I also received some fab swag from Hafsah at IceyBooks.  She made me this gorgeous bottletop necklace and sent me a load of bookmarks too (some signed and one personalised!)  Thank you so much Hafsah.  I totally love that cute, cool necklace - you are so clever to be able to make stuff like this :-)




So what did you get in your mailbox this week?

I got a Bloomsbury package a couple of weeks ago, they're awesome! I've Flawless, Fallen Grace and Mad Love so far. I really enjoyed Mad Love, it was quite unique and cute. Fallen Grace, not so much. Might re-read it and see if I enjoy it any better the second time round.
