In My Mailbox #43

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.

This week I have received three books for review and also bought myself five books (yes I broke my ban - but just for this week).

Eight Keys by Suzanne LaFleur (with thanks to UK Book Tours)
Chronosphere - Time Out of Time by Alex Woolf (with thanks to The Salariya Book Company)
Chronosphere - Malfunction by Alex Woolf (with thanks to The Salariya Book Company)

Misfit by Jon Skovron
The Near Witch by Victoria Schwab
Scars by Cheryl Rainfield

Dark Souls by Paula Morris (loving this gorgeous cover!)
Forbidden - The Demon Trappers by Jana Oliver

So that's what I got in my mailbox this week (well I got a toaster as well, but I'm pretty sure you don't want to see a picture of that!).  What did you get in your mailbox?

Haha, I wanted to see your new toaster!! The Near Witch was beautiful, one of my all time faves this year. Enjoy your books, Karen!


Kate said...

I love the cover for Eight Keys so much :) I'm really looking forward to reading The Near Witch.

Looks like you got some good books this week. Enjoy :)

Jules said...

Great books as always!! :D

I really want to read the Near Witch.

I've been trying to do a book ban as well, but I just can't help myself. My hubby says I am addicted...

Totally want to get The Near Witch and Dark Souls. Both look great.

Nice list of books. Why didn't you just get Misfit from Netgalley? Oh I should break down and buy the Near Witch. It's one I really wanted to get from Netgalley but Disney- Hyperion always denies my requests. I have my profile up to dat and fulfill all requirements but they just don't wanna give me a chance!

I started reading Eight Keys; it's really good so far! It's made me sad already.

Scarlett said...

Book buying bans never last long do they? :)

I love the cover for Dark Souls as well - seems like you had good reason for buying each and everyone of those books! :)

Ohhhh Scars is a frightful cover... made me cringe... tell me that it will not be a frightful read that spooks you till the wee hours of the morning.

Raimy-rawr said...

you got some great books so the breaking of the ban for this week was well worth it!! :D
I really fancy reading Scars but I don't know if it would be too graphic or anything for me. The cover makes me shiver!

Kristin said...

You got a nice set of books.
Happy Reading,
