In My Mailbox (Feb. 27, 2011)

The weekly In My Mailbox post is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. It is fun to see what everyone else gets in their mailboxes, shopping bags, and library visits. Click on the link to The Story Siren's site to see the rules and join in the fun.
I guarantee that your TBR pile will grow when you see all the wonderful books everyone gets. You will discover lots of great blogs and lots of books that you won't be able to live without.

Despite my book buying ban, I just had to get 4 books this week.

These are by authors that I am intensely devoted to:
I need to have each new In Death book the J. D. Robb as soon as it comes out. Treachery In Death has Eve and crew dealing with a corrupt cop. 

This Side of the Grave by Jeaniene Frost was also an essential purchase. I am relatively new to this author but have loved everything she has written. I can't imagine this book being an exception.

These books also managed to slip in around my book buying ban:
I like Kim Harrison's series about The Hollows even though I am still one book behind. I plan to have a Harrison marathon soon to read both Black Magic Sanction (which I purchased on Jan. 26, 2010 even though it wouldn't be published until Feb. 23, 2010) and Pale Demon.

How to Marry a Millionaire Vampire by Kerrelyn Sparks was offered for my Kindle for free. I like vampires and was intrigued by the title. 

What books couldn't you resist this week?


  1. I love reading Nora Roberts, but haven't read anything from her JD Robb series.

    My mailbox can be found here.

  2. I'm hoping my copy of Pale Demon comes in the mail very soon! Already read it, but Kim's coming to my city and I preorder this one awhile ago!

    Have a GREAT day!

  3. I splurged at the used book store yesterday and spent almost $13. Still, I have spent less than $40 in two months, so that is pretty good!

  4. This Side of the Grave was good and worth lifting the book buying band I think. The Kerrelyn Sparks series is pretty funny and silly at times. I hope you like them both!
