In My Mailbox is a lovely meme for book voyeurs hosted by The Story Siren.
This is my first IMM of 2012 and I actually do have quite a few books that need to be shown – but due to the nature of, well, my life, I only have one photo! They rest of my books are off in countries where I am currently not.
- Hallowed by Cynthia Hand
- Oliver Twisted by J. D. Sharpe – Please sir, I want some Goooore. Hehe! Sounds adorably disturbing.
- Fracture by Megan Miranda
- Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver – Eep! Can’t wait to read this one.
- Advent by James Treadwell – I had not heard a thing about this book before I received it for review… but it sounds bloody brilliant. It comes out February 2nd, so I am going to have to get to it soon!
- Blood by K. J. Wignall
- Eona by Alison Goodman – I haven’t actually read Eon yet, nor do I even own it. But I have heard so many fantastic things about this duology that I am convinced I will enjoy them both.
Also for review:
- Crossed by Ally Condie – So glad I’ve started this series as it really is rather good!
- Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly – I had already purchased the hardcover of this book, but I do ever so like the paperback as well!
- Tiger’s Voyage by Colleen Houck – I am not a fan of this series so will likely be giving it away.
- Betrayal by Lee Nichols – Just realised that this is the second book in a series… huh.
- Anthology – The Best Science Fiction and Fantasy of the Year Volume 6
- Angelfall by Susan Ee – Alert the media: this is a self-published novel that I purchased on my own volition. I am stunned by myself – but I read fantastic reviews of this book and am convinced that it will be brilliant.
- Hana by Lauren Oliver – This Delirium novella had be quite excited when I first heard about it… but then I read quite a few disappointing reviews for it. Oh well.
- Daughter of the Flames by Zoe Marriott
- Genus by Jonathan Trigell
- A subscription to Lightspeed Magazine – I had been reading the free Lightspeed stories online, but decided that I should just go ahead and subscribe to the Kindle version of the magazine… especially now that it contains both Fantasy and Lightspeed stories. It’s a fantastic mag, and if you want to read some unexpected, unusual stories I would highly recommend it!
And…. the signed book:
- The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater – SQUEE! I was so epically disappointed when Maggie did her first UK tour while I was not there…. but luckily, Foyles saved me a signed copy. Because they are awesome like that.
*wipes brow* I’m pretty sure that’s it – when you put off posting your IMM posts for a month, things start to pile up!
