In My Mailbox 1/9

Sunday, January 9, 2011

In My Mailbox is an amazing weekly meme hosted by Kristi from The Story Siren that features the books we have received during the week. It's so much fun because we get to see what our fellow bloggers stumbled upon this week and add even more to our piles of books! Without further ado, this week I received the following books:

  8. Oh you won Last Sacrifice, lucky you! Now you need to get moving on the other books in the series so you can get to it;) Glad you enjoyed the first one though, I thought you might hate it and then I would have felt like an a-hole for recommending it to you. Can't wait for your review of Water Wars too, I'm waiting to buy it until I've read what you think!

  15. I've heard thst Last Sacrifice is a great end to a brilliant series! I've just taken Frotbite out from the library. Also, congratulations on getting 7th in the Best Blog Awards- you truly deserve it.

    Yes, I saw some other bloggers creating a seperate page for 2011 reads too and thought it would be a really good way of keeping my reads organised on top of my review archive.

  23. Great books, Melissa! I really want to read The Water Wars. And The Last Sacrifice's cover is really pretty!- but I haven't even read Vampire Academy yet. Hope you enjoy them all! :)

  24. OKay I have to admit it... I watch your IMM vlog each week for two reasons 1. I like seeing what everyone is into for the week and 2. Because I love your accent!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Great mailbox Melissa...I checked out Priscilla on goodreads, and it looks like a winner from the early reviews...Hope you enjoy them all :)

  26. Great vlog! Love Vampire Academy. I hope you enjoy reading the rest of The Vampire Academy series.

  28. The Water Wars sounds great. Happy Reading! Plus congrats on the nomination and votes;)

  29. Great IMM! I'm really looking forward to seeing what you think of The Water Wars, I hope it's everything you hoped it would be. :D Enjoy!

  30. I'm glad you gave the Vampire Academy series a shot. I feel like a lot of vampire books are just the same old plot over and over again, but Richelle Mead managed to do something creative and different. Out of the first five books, the third is definitely my favorite. I haven't read Last Sacrifice yet, but I can't wait!

    Hope you have a good week! :)

  31. Nice books you got this week! I've heard good things about Priscilla the Great, so I'll be looking forward to reading your thoughts on that one.

    I love words too! I'll have to keep an eye out on your Goodreads reviews because that euphemisms book sounds like something I'd like.

  32. Oh, and I was distracted with all those books, but HUGE congrats to you about your award! It is very well deserved.

  36. I keep hearing about The Water Wars, but haven't had the time to check it out. Hope it's good!
