In My Mailbox #8

Oops...I Bought Just A Few
IMM #8
In my mailbox is a meme hosted my The Story Siren telling about what you bought, received or borrowed. 

Bought
(Yes I caved a little this week)
Left: A version of Hans Christian Anderson fairy tales, I love getting my hands on any old copy that I can find/afford (it was only $4)
Right: Hardcover L Frank Baum Tik-Tok of Oz, yes I LOVE Wizard of Oz stuff. I have just recently started to get any copy of the Oz books that I can.
I'm collecting this series and one day I will have to read them. I love the Atlantis series
4) Vowed in Shadows by Jessa Slade
So I went to a my local library and they were having a Romantic Extravaganza with a few romance authors hosted by Cherry Adair. I saw that Jessa Slade does paranormal romance so I went looking for her books and I found book 1 and 3 in the series. They are signed 
This was the swag I got from the signing. I also got a signed copy of Delilah Marvelle's The Perfect Scandal. Jessa Slade signed bookmark and booklet about one of the characters. Shelli Stevens romance trading card, Alexis Morgan bookmark. Fun stuff

Received eBooks
Mayandree gave me an eBook to read and review. I really look forward to reading this book. Hopefully I will get it in the next week. Thanks Mayandree

I few years back I started reading the Oz books. I got about 5 or 6 into the series but never finished, and part of me is always thinking I should go back and read the rest of the books

I can't wait to see what you think about Dark Mirror. I have the ARC and I have it in my pile but I'm waiting to check out a few more reviews before I decide how soon to read!

And you caved :) It's so hard to go a week without buying books, isn't it! Alexandra Monir will be at B&N tomorrow, I'm debating whether or not to go....

What a fantastic IMM haul!

Kristina said...

@Jessica yes all of those covers are very beautiful

@shoshanah yes you should, simple easy quick reads are always a welcome break

@Fiktshun I had started reading it, but I decided I needed to read some other books first. But so far I am liking the 1st part.

I'm still scared to buy any of those books for the Dark Days tour! I am hoping that B&N don't make us buy books. :/

I really liked Dark Mirror.

I really want to read some of Gena Showalter's books. They sound awesome!

Yay for lots of swag! Swag is fun.

I really want to read Betrayal. I'm looking forward to hearing what you think of it. :)
