In My Mailbox (24)

Posted by

“In My Mailbox” is a meme, created by Kristi at The Story Siren, that features books I have

received/ purchased/ borrowed during the week. 

I hope everyone had a fabulous week because this week was my BIRTHDAY! Yay! We went out today to celebrate with steak an lobster. It was delicious! I didn’t actually buy any books this week but I did receive a few review copies that can count for birthday gifts, right!? I also got a cake, I left it on the coffee table and my toddler found it this morning. He was quiet for a few minutes, so I came to see what he was up to and he was stuffed full of chocolate. Then I sent him off to his grandparent’s. Teehee.

This week at Xpresso Reads was zombilicious. Make sure you haven’t missed any zombie fun by clicking here.  I also posted a massive cover reveal –here– with some lovely new pretties. And I scheduled a new tour for Someone Else’s Life. I already had a copy for review so I was happy to be asked to take part of the tour as well. Oh, and I’ve still got 5 open giveaways, don’t forget to enter (found on sidebar), as a couple of them are ending soon!

Let’s see what I got for review this week:

 A huge thank you to Thomas Nelson, Tabitha Vale, J. Meyers, Macmillan Publishers, Nikki Jefford, JL Bryan and Penguin Canada for the review copies.

    Awesome, awesome mailbox! 😀 I really, really love the sound of Angel Eyes and Auracle (and Auracle’s cover is absolutely stunning and creepy). I’ve heard some mixed things about Dark Eyes and Struck, so I’m interested to see what you think. 🙂
