In My Mailbox - Christmas Edition

You should have seen my face when on Monday my wonderful mailman dragged a huge bag to my doorstep. Need I seriously mention what was in that bag? After a bit of joking that he needed to wear a red coat and grow a beard I was left with a whole stash of books I had recently ordered. Long story short, here's what Santa ... uhm, Mr. Postman ... brought this week!

Let's start with books from The Book Depository - Soul Screamers Vol 1. (Rachel Vincent), Murder Of A Bookstore Babe (Denise Swanson) and A Killer Plot (Ellery Adams).

The rest of my loot came from AwesomeBooks who had a fantastic buy-4-pay-3 book promotion that I simply couldn't resist. Basically I paid rougly € 2,20 for each book (including shipping!). Yep, we're talking used books, but a girl needs to watch her bank account, ya know!

A Week At The Airport (Alain De Botton)
Checkout (Anna Sam)
The Secret Shopper Unwrapped and The Secret Shopper's Revenge (Kate Harrison)
Death By Darjeeling and Shades Of Earl Grey (Laura Childs)
Latte Trouble, Murder Most Frothy, Decaffeinated Corpse and French Pressed (Cleo Coyle)

Beautiful Creatures (Kami Garcia)
Poison Study (Maria V. Snyder)
Evermore (Alison Noel)
Wake (Lisa McMann)
Siren (Tricia Rayburn)
Hereafter (Tara Hudson)
Moonlight (Rachel Hawthorne)
Need (Carrie Jones)

Evernight (Claudia Gray)
Numbers (Rachel Ward)
Hush, Hush (Becca Fitzpartick)
Sisters Red (Jackson Pearce)
Shade (Jeri Smith-Ready)
Tender Morsels (Margo Lanagan)
The Secret Hour (Scott Westerfeld)
Passing Strange (Daniel Waters)
Prophecy Of The Sisters (Michelle Zink)
Claire De Lune (Christine Johnson)

And for those of you who are drooling over that list just remember my previously mentioned plan of finding new homes for old books! Did I just hear a collective YAY? And not to worry, I'll be reading fast, so to share some of today's bookish goodness with some of my readers rather sooner than later.

Thanks to The Story Siren for hosting the IMM meme!

  5. And your mailman had to haul this up stairs, right? Poor guy- he probably went home and got out a heating pad for his back.
