In My Mailbox #31

October 23, 2011

In My Mailbox is a meme hosted by The Story Siren, which allows bloggers to share what books they’ve received in the past week. They can be from stores, contests, tours or publishers!

I only got four books over the past week, but here is what I got…

The Lost Crown by Sarah Miller (purchased)
The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater (purchased)
Blood Rights by Kristen Painter (thanks to Publishers)
Bad Blood by Kristen Painter (thanks to Publishers)

I’ve read The Lost Crown before, and I absolutely loved it. I wanted a copy of my own, and the hardcover is so beautiful and full of photographs in the back. I highly recommend this book if you’ve got an interest in the Romanov family. So glad to finally have it! I’m also insanely excited to start The Scorpio Races. It’s next on my list. As for the two Kristen Painter books, I’ve now got all three books in The House of Comarre books. It’s another vamp series, so not sure when I’ll get around to them, but glad to have all three so I can hopefully read them back-to-back.

Link up your mailbox and I’ll be sure to check it out!

    I just had to have the Lost Crown on my shelf when I saw that the spine was really pretty :P. I recently read and enjoyed the Scorpio Races. I love Maggie Stiefvater! :) happy reading.

    I love historical fiction, and so The Lost Crown is definitely one I’ve been hoping to read.

    Oh that’s a different Scorpio Races cover! I love it! I’ve heard mixed reviews on it, though but I’m curious.

    Awesome haul! I got the Scorpio Races too. I do prefer the cover you (and I) have to the US one – it’s just prettier.

    My IMM is here if you’d like a look :)

    I LOVE The Scorpio Races!! Maggie is just so freaking talented. I will auto-buy anything she writes next <3 I have Blood Rights too! I'm about just over half way through and liking it, but got distacted so much so I put it off for a while. Hope to go back to it soon.

    Enjoy! :)

    I’ve seen The Scorpio Races on sale the last time I went to the bookstore a few days ago, I’m thinking about it getting. Hope you enjoy it! And the House of Comarre books look good too. I hope to read those eventually, though I’m still a little burnt out on vampires. Thanks for stopping by! Happy reading. :)
