In my mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren in which you share the books you added to your collection in the past week…and this is my inaugural post!


This week will actually include books from the past two weeks because last week it was New Years Day and quite frankly I was too busy sitting around eating my Christmas candy bounty and watching my Fantasy Football team fall on their face in their final playoff game.

Thanks to Erica at The Book Cellar for the heads up on those!  Still bummed I missed the window on The Cloud Roads.


Finally because I have been aching for the Fables cover collection for ages (and because it’s the only physical book I picked up this week), here’s a taste of the gorgeous images you’ll find inside:

    You got approved for Code Name Verity, I'm jealous! I requested it on NetGalley but they have a note there saying that they're not sending review copies to bloggers. :( I really want to read All Men of Genius. Have fun reading Magic Gifts, I loved that novella and I can't wait to read Gunmetgal Magic.

  3. That IS pretty — the Fables book I mean. I've been wanting to check that out for pretty much forever.ALSO, I totally love the cover of The Prince Who Fell From The Sky, looks like it is right up my alley.Way to rock out with the ebooks this week — I pretty much did the same.Happy reading 😀

  4. "Erica said…Darker Still and Every Other Day both look great! Happy reading."I'm almost done with Every Other Day, and it's awesome! The face that Darker Still is supposed to have elements of Pride and Prejudice and Dorian Grey meant I HAD to read it.

I think I was probably approved because I am a librarian, not because I'm a blogger. I actually have to admit I haven't read any Ilona Andrews yet, but after reading several blog posts and the fact that she did this for fans I think she is AWESOME and have the utmost respect for her, and plan to dig in.

Also I'm pretty sure I requested The Prince Who Fell From the Sky 90% because of it's cover, but the synopsis sounded good as well!
