In My Mailbox (29)

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. 

How is everyone this Easter weekend? I hope you’re having a great long weekend. I had a fantastic week, and even though we’re supposed to have a snow storm tonight, I’m definitely feeling the spring season! I love it! So this week on the blog I had a cover reveal on Monday with two fabulous new covers – here – you must check it out if you missed it! I also had the Pure Blog Tour drop by for a short excerpt here. And you can still enter my 2000 Followers Giveaway here for those who may have missed it.

I am really excited for my haul this week, beyond words! Ashen Winter is the sequel to one of my favorite books ever – Ashfall. I squeeed for days when I saw it up on Netgalley. Then I got JL Bryan’s books which I am super excited to continue after reading the awesomeness that is Jenny Pox. And guess who makes yet another appearance!? Hint: LOVE her face!

Let’s see what I got for review this week (click on cover or title links for Goodreads):

When Rhiannon asked me to test read her upcoming zombie novel: The Last Bastion of the Living; obviously, I immediately jumped at the chance (literally!) – and I can promise you it is ALL kinds of awesome. No freaking joke: It’s blowing my MIND! This IMM post is late because of it. 
This is another one not to miss, guys! She’s hoping to have it finished for release this summer. Click on the “non-cover” below to add it to your Goodreads!
*Thanks so much to Tanglewood, Flux Books, J.L. Bryan, Kevin Emerson and Rhiannon Frater for these copies*
And of course, I bought this: 
Yup, I did. Laugh all you want Katie, she rocks my face! I already read The Tale of the Vampire Bride and I freaking loved it! So much so I needed to get me these gorgeous print copies. My review will be posted soon!

What did you get this week?

    So many wonderful books! 🙂 I’m a bit jealous of SILVER, because this sounds awesome and has been on my to-read list forever. 😀 Also need to read J.L. Bryan’s books soon and will need to get a copy of Ashfall sometime this year as well. 😀

    Hahah more Rhiannon Fater. Glad you’re enjoying them 🙂

    Okay so the Paranormals series looks so good, I’ve gone and added it to my TBR. And I got Ashen Winter too, so I’m buying Ashfall (which was only released in Australia a few weeks ago) next week and then reading both! So excited.

    Thanks for sharing, and HAPPY READING!

    Okay . . . I really need to get my hands on one of Rhiannon Frater’s books. Because honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever seen you so enamored with one author. That alone makes me want to read them all.

    Also, Silver! 😀 That one looks so gorgeous. I hope it’s as good as it looks. *-*

    I am excited about The Last Bastion of the Living! I’ve been on a zombie craze lately, especially with The Walking Dead being over until October! This is going strait to my TBR pile 🙂 I will have to check out her vampire novels as well! eee 😀

    Happy Reading and Happy Easter from a fellow eastern Canadian! 🙂

  14. Bea

    LOL, Rhiannon Frater has become your obsession, hasn’t she? I think I need to check her out. 😀

    As you know, I am *beyond* excited for Ashen Winter. SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Happy Easter 🙂

    Nice haul of books you received this week. I was fortunate enough to get Jenny Pox by JL Bryan as well last week. I am looking forward to reading that book. Rhiannon Frater is going to be hosting a Zombie fest in the next week or so. Will you participating in that?

    Here’s what I received IMM this week.

    Happy Reading G!

    J. L. Bryan sure has been making quite a few ripples in the YA pool, so I’m curious to see what the deal is about his writing, yo. The artwork for some of these are GORGEOUS!

    And I AM SO INTRIGUED by Silver, you don’t even know. You should totally let me know if you enjoy it or not 😀

    Have an amazing reading week!


  17. Christy D

    Damn, I still need to read Ashfall. I have it, but haven’t been able to read it yet. Same with Rhiannon’s Vamp Bride – I need to read it!

  18. SacredmOOn

    OMG! I’m sooo frigging jealous! You got the paperbacks of The Vampire Bride by Rhiannon Frater.
    I have the Kindle editions but would die for getting paperbacks in my hands. 😉
