IMM #16

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! I didn't do an In My Mailbox last week as I wasn't well, so the books listed below are the books I received the past few weeks. I was planning on doing a video IMM but it won't upload :( Hopefully I can do one next week!

Last week I went to the library for the first time in a while and picked up some great books!

Forgotten by Cat Patrick

I just finished Forgotten this morning and I loved it! I will have a review up later this week. I really hope there is a sequel. Its about a girl called London who can't remember what she did yesterday or the day before but can remember the future, what she will wear tomorrow, who she will have an argument with next week. There is an awesome romance in it and had great and unexpected twists and turns.

The Betrayal of Natalie Hargrove by Lauren Kate
The Betrayal of Natalie Hargrove
I have never read any of Lauren's books before. I picked this up as I had seen it floating around the blog world and thought it looked good. Its about a girl called Natalie Hargrove who is popular, pretty and ambitious. She wants to be prom queen and will do anything to make sure no one gets in her way!

Graveminder by Melissa Marr
I have never read any of Melissa's books but thought this book sounded good. It's about two families that have responsibilities in their small town to make sure the newly departed dead stay dead. Maylene is one of the people who has to make sure the dead stay dead but she is killed and it is then up to her granddaughter to come back to the town she left many years ago to take over Maylene's role and confront her past.

Virals by Kathy Reichs
Kathy is the author that inspired the TV series Bones. This book is about a girl and her friends who live in a small island and love forensic anthropologist. Her and her friends uncover a body of a dead girl that went missing 30 years ago as well as a sick dog in a lab on the other side of the island. Are the two connected? They realise they have stumbled across something bad and while on the run they all get ill. An illness that is changing their biology!

The Lily Bard Mysteries Omnibus by Charlene Harris
The Lily Bard Mysteries Omnibus (Lily Bard Omnibus)
I love Charlaine and I love her Sookie Stackhouse novels! So I wanted to try something else of hers. So I picked up The Lily Bard Mysteries. This has the first six books in the series in it and it is massive! I think I might read one story then review it and go onto another book, then go back to it. It will depend on how much I love this series!

So in the last few weeks I only bought one book, go me! This must be some sort of record for me. So the book I bought was:

Fury by Elizabeth Miles

Fury (Fury Trilogy)


I picked up Fury for a half price in my one of my local shops. The only reason I picked it up was that I have heard great things about it. I do prefer the US cover to the UK cover though!

I received some awesome books in the post in the last few weeks. Here they are:

Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

Daughter of Smoke and Bone


I got a sampler of Daughter of Smoke and Bone that contains the first four chapters of the novel. I am going read the sampler soon to see how I like it and if I like it I will order it. It is released September 29th.

The Seventh Blessing by Melissa Buell

The Seventh Blessing


I have an interview up on my blog with Melissa and also a giveaway of some signed bookmarks. I will post a link at the end of my IMM. With the swag Melissa kindly sent me my a copy of her debut novel. I love the cover and can't wait to start reading it.
