In My Mailbox


In My Mailbox is a weekly blog post hosted by Kirsti over at The Story Siren and inspired by Alea at Pop Culture Junkie.

Did pretty good this week!! To start the week off I bought my copy of Shadowfever and devoured it pretty much first thing this week!
Here's my review


Then I got Red Riding Hood by Sarah Blakley-Cartwright. I'm excited for the movie despite it having the Twilight director on board and an opposite Twilight feel to it. Like I said before I read another book years ago that had a similar basis with Red and the wolf being a werewolf and falling in love.



Then I received my SIGNED copy of Spy Glass by Maria V Snyder that I won in a contest at Bitten By Books a few months ago! Was so excited since Maria is one of my fave authors! And it was SIGNED!!




 Then from NetGalley, I received an E-ARC of Colleen Gleason's The Vampire Voss!



Then I received the Kindle edition of Tara Maya's The Unfinished Song, from Tara herself! Thanks Tara! I look forward to reading it!!



And this isn't a book, but still totally awesome and I had to buy it, because I could see one of my novels' characters wearing it, so I HAD to have it.


It's a little charm with a skeleton in the coffin that is to represent that Day of the Dead. And the back heart next to it, just accents it nicely! I don't know why I was so taken with this, but I just was! I bought it at an Etsy shop named Cemetery Cat Designs. She also does some Vampire Academy jewelry as well. I've bought 2 bracelets from that collection. And she does some Sabina Kane ones as well!

And that was my fabulous mailbox this week. What did you get?

  1. OMG, I love the necklace!:) Congrats on getting Spy glass! And let me know if Red Riding Hood has some kind of Twilightesque or deja vu feeling - I need to know if I add it to my TBR list or not.:))

    Happy reading!

  2. Yay Shadowfever! I started this series over a year ago and got stuck with that cliffhanger after book 4 for 17 months as well. Not smart. But it was worth the wait:) I can't wait to read Red Riding Hood as well, and I think the movie looks great.

  11. Great mailbox! I got that book from the author as well but haven't retrieved it or decided if I will because I don't really have time for it. And I don't have a kindle to read it on. It does have a cool cover though!
