IMM #18

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!

This is two weeks worth of books. I got some amazing books! Check them out!


Torchwood: Long Time Dead by Sarah Pinborough

Torchwood: Long Time Dead


I love the Torchwood series on TV and love the books as well. I picked this new one up at the library!

Wish me dead by Helen Grant

Wish Me Dead


This was a new book in the library. It's about a girl who visits a cursed house and make some wishes, wishes that come true. Like wishing the poisonous busybody who destroyed her family to disappear comes true, wishing someone dead, comes true! Sounds like a good read.


Over the last few weeks I bought some amazing books, that am really excited to read!

Grave Sight by Charlaine Harris

Grave Sight (Harper Connelly, #1)


Grave Sight is the first book in the Harper Connelly series by Charleine Harris. I love Charleine's Sookie Stackhouse series and wanted to try another of her series. I picked this up for £3. Bargain!

Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness

A Discovery of Witches


I read and reviewed this a while back when I got it from the library and loved it. It was just released in paperback so I had to buy it to have my own copy! You can check out my review here. (This is the first book in the series)

Letters from home by Kristina McMorris

Letters From Home


Alot of you may not know this but I love romance books set during the first and second world wars. I picked this one up for a bargain price of £1.50

The name of the star by Maureen Johnson

The Name of the Star (Shades of London #1)


This is a new release. It's about a girl called Rory who moves to London to go to boarding school and on the day she moves there London is gripped by brutal murders "mimicking the horrific Jack the Ripper events of more than a century ago." Rory see the prime suspect but no one else can not even her friend who is walking with her at the time. Why can Rory only see him?  This sound like an awesome read. I am currently having my 600 follower giveaway where you can win a copy of The Name of the star. Click here! (This is the first book in the series)

Ashes by Isla J Bick

Ashes (Ashes Trilogy #1)


This is also a new release. This is about an electromagnetic pulse that changed people. Some acquire super human powers and some develop a taste for human flesh. A fight to suvive ensues. I love end of the world time books at the minute, can't wait to start this one!

The Taker- an immortal love story by Alma Katsu

The Taker


This book was just released in paperback and I though I would pick it up. It's part historical novel, part supernatural page-turner, with vampires what more could you want!

Angel Fire by L.A. Weatherly

Angel Fire (Angel, #2)


This is the second book in the Angel trilogy. I loved the first book Angel and can't wait to read Angel Fire. You can check out my review of the first book in the trilogy here!


The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman

The Golden Compass (His Dark Materials, #1)


I won this during the banned books week and received it this week. I have seen the movie but haven't read the book. Thanks to Rachel from Rachel Brooks writes

  1. I seriously need to try one of the Torchwood books. I love the show, but I still need to finish watching last season (Miracle Day). I'm always afraid the books won't be as good as the show.

And I've read great things about Ashes. I read your review of Angel (your first review!) and you might have convinced me to start a new series. I haven't heard of this one.
