In My Mailbox #150: New Books Last Month

In My Mailbox idea from Kristi @ The Story Siren, and all links (would usually) take you to Amazon. Click images for a bigger picture!

Hello IMM, how I've missed you! As some of you may have noticed, I didn't post anything for the whole of December. I also didn't really read anything except one or two small books. I really needed a break from books and the internet, but now I'm back and excited about books again. Yay! From the beginning of December until now, I still had lots of books arrive in my mailbox - some for review and some I'd bought - so here's a rundown of everything that hasn't been mentioned on my blog. Sorry there are no links to Amazon, I just haven't got time to do that this weekend.

Great selection! So jealous of D19 2!

TG said...

Oh, you have Torn! So jealous - Entangled was one of my favourite books last year.

Lynn said...

Flipping eck! (for want of a better phrase).
Well, I'm definitely going to get the Maria Snyder book because I've read all of her books and I have a certain loyalty now!
I nearly bought switched this weekened, picked it up, put it down, picked it up, put it down. I still want it so maybe I'll get it next week! Then again maybe I'll go through the same motions!
What a fantastic haul!
Lynn :D

I spotted that you got the Big Bang Theory A to Z. I am so in love with that show!

OMG, great collection of books, I really must order Slide, love the cover, it looks so 90s! I just pre-ordered Pulse as I loved Siren!

Would you recommend those Vampire Diaries companion books? I have thought about ordering them a few times.

Nimue said...

That's a quite a haul! Congrats.
There a so many books I want to read and either already got or are on top of my wish list, especially Night School. Hope you like this one.
The cover for Blood Red Road looks gorgeous. Is this the UK one?

Having a break is really good sometimes, eh?! I hardly read anything in December either. There was just too much going on with Christmas.

I need to get Touch of Power. I keep telling myself I musn't until I have read a couple of things. But now I need to investigate Prince of Thorns and Advent too.

Looking forward to more of your reviews in 2012.

Oh, Lordy... and now the mad "adding UK edtions" to Goodreads starts. ha!

I already have Torn on my wishlist, but of course BD hates me. :P

Now I have The Book of Blood and Shadow on there - the UK edition because the cover is FAB! I just saw the US edition when I was looking it up and it's just awful. Words on a face? Not fun at all.

You being on a blog break, though sad, was much easier on my desperate need to get all things UK. ha!
