In My Mailbox #11

In my mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren were everyone puts up the books they have bought, received or got from the library!

Hey guys! So last week I didn't do an IMM as I didn't really have much to show you guys. I thought it would be the same this week, however I had a bit of extra money and instead of saving it I ended up buying some books.


I love to find good bargains with regards to book and this week was a great week for bargain books. First up I got:

*Playing with Grown Ups by Sophie Dahl Goodreads
*The Senator's wife by Sue Miller Goodreads

I got both these books together for £1! BARGIN! Both are adult books and where published a few years back. They are apparently great summer reads. I have never heard of any of Sue Miller's books, but The Senator's Wife sounds OK, I will get around to it eventually. I really like the sound of Sophie Dahl's book, Playing with Grown Ups. I have never read anything of hers but with her grandfather being Roald Dahl I think it will be a good read.

*The Dark Flight Down by Marcus Sedgwick Goodreads

I got his book for £1. It's hardback and brand new! I read a few of Marcus's books at the beginning of the year. I liked them, even though they where a little different from my novel reads. This book is the second book with the first being Book of Dead Days, which I still have to read, but I thought why not get it when it was so cheap!

The next three book are all new releases in the UK. I got all three for £10!

*Torchwood: First Born by James Goss Goodreads

I heart Torchwood so much! John Barrowman rules! I have read many of the Torchwood books and watch the programmes on TV. I am currently watching Torchwood:  Miracle Day on TV and this is a prequel to it. :)

*Incubus by Carol Goodman Goodreads

I picked up this book as the cover caught my attention and when I read the back I knew this was the book for me. It says if you love Stephenie Meyer (which I do, Team Jacob ;) and Charlaine Harris (Love her even more, heart Eric) then you will love this series. Can't wait to start it!

*My Soul to Take by Rachel Vincent Goodreads

This is the first book in the Soul Screamers series. It sounds like a good book. I have heard good reviews and opinions of this series on other blogs! Love the cover :)


* The Legacy of KilKenny a novel- Book One by Devyn Dawson Goodreads

Devyn was giving a free download of her book as she was celebrating her anniversary. I decided to download it as it sounds like a good read.

*Becoming the Sheriff's Wife by Trish Mauldin Goodreads

I am interviewing Trish in August and she kindly sent her book to me to review. :)


*Infinity by Sarah Dessen

This is a short read of 30 pages. I got it as I wanted to try something by Sarah. I have heard great things by Sarah and wanted to see what he writing was like. Can anybody recommend another of her books I should try?

What did you get in your mailbox?

P.S. If you could please check out my lastest author interviews that would be awesome. I also currently have two giveaway going on!
