In My Mailbox!


My mailbox was a little different this week but in a fun way.

Books I knew were coming....
Books 5-10 of Rachel Caine's Morganville Vampires (yay!)
&
A signed copy of Lara Adrian's latest book. Plus it came with some extra little goodies I wasn't expecting! (even more yay!)

Also...
I received an ARC of Until Next Time by Amy Lignor from Tribute Books for review

And won Grey's Lady by and from Natasha Blackthorne during the Shameless blog hop

Where things got a little funny... I had a little extra in my fun money jar left over and decided to take a gamble. I bought a lot of 50 books off ebay from a used bookstore that was trying to get rid of their extra inventory. In comes photo two and the leaning stack of books. Only thing I was told was they would all be romance and in good to very good shape (yeah so not the case but most were okay).  What I got.....
  • 2 books I already owned
  • 15 eventual buys (Including JAK, Sparks, Nora Roberts, Katie MacAlister, Feehan, Kim Harrison)
  • 4 I'd never heard of but want to read including a book called Nerd in Shining Armor
  • AND.....29 books I'll probably never read 
So not too bad really. I spent $35 and got 19 books I'll be reading at some point. Well, I do now have a whole shelf of random "classic" romance books that so aren't my thing but who knows might turn out to be a great thing and I'll find an author I love in there. I don't think I'll do this again any time soon but it was still fun not knowing and getting to sort through a huge box of books and seeing what I got.

  1. That actually does sound like a lot of fun! At least you got a whole bunch that you WILL read, and you never know about the rest!

    1. It was a nice surprise having so many I know I'd have bought anyways. Fingers crossed for the rest. I'm sure I'll be able to work some of them into a reading challenge here or there :)

  2. I absolutely ADORE the Morganville Series, I hope you love the ones that you haven't yet read! I think the eBay thing sounds really fun too too, at least you got a lot of books that sound like you'll enjoy them!

    Here's my IMM. :)

    1. I've read books 1-4 so far and LOVED them! It's been killing me waiting for these to arrive :)

      I'll probably try another mystery box if I can find a paranormal one. Would LOVE that!
