In My Mailbox # 7

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren , find out more about it on her IMM-page.

I swear, I seriously wrote a review (one that has been loooong overdue) today (Saturday), but my laptop crashed (are all the mighty powers against me lately?) and all was lost. I have it all in my head though (seriously, as if I would forget something, ever !)..and I'll be posting it on Monday, promise.

Anyway, I had a week of AWESOME! Seriously, a wonderful and great week, at least book-wise!

So, lets get started:
This week I want to begin with this cute (quite big) package I got Friday. I did win this book on facebook (Wohoo - Yay) and the lovely package arrived so fast and with so many small lovely details, I was quite overwhelmed: Thank you so much!!
Love Unscripted - Tina Reber, sent with Love from the USA.
Love Unscripted -Tina Reber , The book is really 'thick' and I'm looking forward to reading it (I put it on my holiday-pile, as I'm going home to Switzerland soon). There even was a nice signature inside the book:
1st reader in Sweden!
 Anyway, this is not all I got this week, but  the rest of the books mentioned below I bought by myself (someone help me please, I'm spending way too much money on books!!!!!)

This is my impressive book-pile on Thursday evening this week! ( I got two more on Friday)
Help, when am I going to read all of this?
A Game of Thrones - George R.R.Martin; HBO is launching a new series ' A Game of Thrones' on April 17th, starring (amongst others) my all-time favourite actor Sean Bean, so I just had to check it out/ read the book(s) the TV-series is based on. So looking forward to reading this, they say it reminds a little of Lord of the Rings....

More Fantasy! I loved the Immortals-series when I was a teenager, I had them on loan from the library constantly. Loved them. Earlier this month I bought 'Wild Magic' as an e-book to see if I still loved it, I did, so I bought them all. Looking forward to reading them! First time in English, yay!

Wild Magic - Tamora Pierce
Wolf Speaker - Tamora Pierce
Emperor Mage - Tamora Pierce
The Realms of the Gods - Tamora Pierce

 It certainly has been a Faery-week!!!

Glimmerglass - Jenna Black
Shadowspell - Jenna Black
Fairy Tale - Cyn Balog
The Iron Queen - Julie Kagawa ( I've been waiting like crazy for this one, currently reading it, bawling my eyes out!)

 There has been so much talk and hype about the #fever series these past few weeks, that I just had to buy them all (the ones available) as I was in Stockholm this week. And I've already ordered Shadowfever, a faery week indeed!
Darkfever - Karen Marie Moning
Bloodfever - Karen Marie Moning
Faefever - Karen Marie Moning
Dreamfever - Karen Marie Moning

Paranormalcy - Kiersten White ( I bought this one in Stockholm this week)
Clockwork Angel - Cassandra Clare ( another one I bought in Stockholm)
Angel - L.A. Weatherly ( I really don't like this cover!!!)

Revolution - Jennifer Donnelly , I've only heard good things about this! Bought this one in Stockholm as well.

And some chick-lit:
A Valentine's Kiss - Lucie Hart

Lost Dogs and Lonely Hearts - Lucy Dillon .. I Loved this!! I only wish I'd read it BEFORE 'Walking Back to Happiness' which is kind of a sequel to this one. Even though I'm really not a dog person (I'm really really afraid of dogs) I absolutely adored this book, read it in one sitting. (got it on Tuesday afternoon, finished it sometime during the night to Wednesday)

Nanny Returns - Emma McLaughlin & Nicola Kraus - I only bought this one because it was crazy cheap in the bookstore I visited in Stockholm. I've read and adored 'Nanny Diaries' but I haven't really been interested in the sequel....


  1. WOW! So many books this week 0__O! I really loved Clockwork Angel, so I hope you will, too! I also want to read one of Cyn Balog's books, I've heard great things. REVOLUTION is also a high priority of mine!

    Check out my mailbox this week

  2. So many books!
    I love the Tamora Pierce books. And I've read & loved Angel, I hope you enjoy it!
