So, not to brag, but I feel like my mailbox is pretty awesome this week!

Last week, I visited some of the blogs that I follow, and one of them (I can't quite remember which one. I've come to rely totally on my Google reader, but the downside is that I lose the individuality of blog designs that stand out in my head. It's like instead of remember phone numbers, I just hit a speed dial.) had an author interview and contest with H.P. Mallory. I loved the covers for her books, and they sounded like a good read. I entered the contest. And lost. Then, a few days later, I had an email in my inbox from the author, with a review request. *happy dance*

And, look at that cover on
Silver Phoenix! I might be late to discovering the work of Cindy Pon, but there is no way to deny that this cover art is georgeous! I spotted it in my library, and I had to pick it up, despite the towering TBR I already have. I might have to consider instituting a cap on my library outtake, as well as my book-buying ban.

Speaking of: Yes, I do have two bought books there. I cheated, sort of. Blameless and Sparks have been on my auto-buy list since I've been reading their respective series'. But, in my defense, I used a B&N gift card that I received for my birthday, so no actual money left my wallet. Woohoo for loopholes!

How's your mailbox look?


  1. Good ones this week! I've heard pretty good things about blameless and I'm dying for Silver Phoenix. Enjoy:)

  2. Good selection there. I just finished Soulless so I have to read Changless next. Love Kelley's books.

  3. The first two books look pretty. Hope they are good. :) Have a great reading week.

  4. Wow...you got a ton of books! Enjoy them and thank for stopping by my blog!

  5. I loved Bitten by kelley armstrong. If you like that, another good series is Werecats by Rachel Vincent. I actually like Vincent's better but Women of the Otherworld is awesome too.

    I'm dying to read Blameless too.

    Enjoy all your loot! :)

  6. I've started my own much needed book-buying cap. I need to stop going to Half-price books and walking away $50 lighter! Great books this week! I really want to read Silver Phoenix, I like this cover so much better than the paperback. Need to read more Kelley Armstrong! I've read her YA series and loved it!

  7. What a great mailbox. I hope you enjoy them!

    Have a good week

  8. Great mailbox this week! I love Bitten. It's one of my all time favourite reads. I hope you enjoy it too! Happy reading. :D

  9. It is not bragging, your mail box is awesome this week! I really want to read, To Kill a Warlock!
