In My Mailbox (13) - Christmas Edition

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. It gives book bloggers the chance to share what they’ve bought/borrowed/received!

Merry Christmas to those who celebrate. This post will be going up Christmas morning which mean that it won't include any books I received on Christmas Day. I don't usually get too many books as gifts but we'll see. I have a feeling there might be a couple this year. And if no one gifts me books, I will be making a trip to the bookstore to gift some to myself.  :) There were also major eBook sales going on this week and I needed up with lots of new pretties on my Kindle.


Entwined by Heather Dixon (kindle) - Another book I've been wanting to read that was on sale.

Graceling by Kristen Cashore (kindle) - I've heard amazing things about this book and it was the Daily Deal on Kindle this week for $0.99 and I had to get it.

Unearthly by Cynthia Hand (kindle) - Pretty sure you all know about the big $0.99 Epic Reads sale. This was one of the titles included and since I haven't read it yet, it was the perfect time to get a copy.

The Rowan by Anne McCaffrey - I am a bit ashamed to say that I've never read a book by Anne. With her recent passing her books have risen in my TBR pile. I saw this lovely new pb copy at B&N while shopping for gifts and it somehow ended up coming home with me. :) 

Bumped by Megan McCafferty (kindle) - I know almost nothing about this book but it was so cheap I thought I'd give it a try.

For Review
(all from Netgalley this week)

Kiss of the Vampire by Cynthia Garner - Another one I don't know much about but whose premise caught my eye.

Next of Kin by Sharon Sala - I've seen Sharon's name around and figured I would give this a try. It's part of a series but I think I can jump in with this one.

Small Town Christmas Anthology - Just wracking up the Christmas reads over here.

Christmas in Lucky Harbor & Head Over Heels by Jill Shalvis - Christmas is books 1 and 2 of the Lucky Harbor series and Head Over Heels is #3. Have heard good things about Jill and was super excited to see these show up on NG.

Slide by Jill Hathaway - Loving the premise of this one and was so happy when NG approved me.

Ripper by Amy Carol Reeves - I am a fan of the dark and macabre so a tale involving Jack the Ripper is right up my alley.

Firelight by Kristen Callihan - I don't know much about this one but the synopsis looked interesting.

Spotty, Stripy, Swirly by Jane Brocket - I am a fan of Jane's blog, Yarnstorm, and have already reviewed one of her picture books for RNSL. This looks like another fun, colorful book.

That's all I have for time. Off to open gifts now (yes, we do it pretty late at my huose). Hope everyone is having a fantastic day!\

say "twee!"
