In My Mailbox (5)

Holy crap, it's been 3,5 months since I last did an IMM! So this'll be pretty massive. Though not as massive as it could have been if public transportation hadn't failed in bringing me to a book sale I had planned to go to...

Anyway, I'm bound to forget some books I got, but I'll try to get them all in this post. So this is basically 3,5 months of books, beware.


I kind of splurged a bit as a reward for passing the test at the end of my last internship, this is the result:

-The Other Countess by Eve Edwards: SOOO looking forward to this one! There aren't that many YA historical romances to go around so I'm really excited to get to this one!
-Sirenz by Charlotte Bennardo & Natalie Zaman: Greek mythology is awesome and this sounds like such a cute read!

-Waterfall by Lisa T. Bergren: I've heard great things about this book and it sounds awesome, so glad to have it waiting on me now!
-Divergent by Veronica Roth: really, how could any selfrespecting YA dystopian lover NOT be tempted to get this one?? And my wonky old camera has managed to make the cover even funkier. I'm dying to read this one!

-Mermaid by Carolyn Turgeon: I actually WON this about 3 months ago in a giveaway by Amy from Passages to the Past, I know I've said it before, but THANK YOU AMY!! I LOVE mermaids and this book sounds right up my alley!
-To The Moon and Back by Jill Mansell: seriously, I don't get why she's not better known in the US, cause she is AMAZING! I have her on auto-buy, she's one of the reigning ladies in chicklit in my opinion and here in Holland we love her. I haven't read this one yet, but she's never disappointed me before.

-Dael and the Painted People by Allan Richard Schickman: I got this one for review, it's the third book in the Zan Gah series and I enjoyed the first one.

-Master Magician series book 1-6 by W.J. Maryson: these came in the mail Tuesday and I'm so, SO happy! Seriously, it's a fantasy series in Dutch and I read them back when I was 12 or so. BUT they're out of print and for the past few years I've been looking EVERYWHERE for them and now found a set that was maybe gently used. I'm looking forward to rereading them, it's been a LONG time!

Seriously, 3,5 months of requests is too much to add here, so I'll highlight a few notables:

-The Juliet Spell by Douglas Rees
-Eve by Anna Carey
-The Twilight of Lake Woebegotten by Harrison Geillor: I almost never read parodies, but this sounded too fun to resist!

-Vanish by Sophie Jordan
-A Beautiful Dark by Jocelyn Davies: I seriously squealed when I got this one! It sounds awesome!
-The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson: I officially do not appreciate the cover change, this one is so much prettier!

-The Mephisto Convenant by Trinity Faegen
-Wisdom's Kiss by Catherine Gilbert Murdock
-The Traitor's Wife by Kathleen KentI LOVED The Heretic's Daughter by the same author, so excited to be reading this!

-Legacy by Cayla Kluver: I'm currently reading this, about 50 pages in, so far it's good!
-Spellbound by Cara Lynn Shultz: already reviewed this one, it was really good!
-The Wild Rose by Jennifer Donnelly


-Fury by Elizabeth Miles: I think this book will rock my socks off!
-Sometimes It Happens by Lauren Barnholdt: already read this, highly enjoyable!
-Wildefire by Karsten Knight: already read, review will be up soon.

Huge THANK YOU to all the publishers!'

So, while that wasn't ALL I've managed to collect in 3,5 months, I can't list everything, that would make this post way too long.
Anyway, have you read any of the books I got? Recommendations as to what I should read first? And what did you get in your mailbox?


  1. The Master Magician Series looks really nice - does it have an English translation?

    Among the titles that you shared, I am particularly intrigued by Dael and the Painted People - looks really interesting.

    Here's my IMM:

  2. You have seriously racked up! I love historical fiction and I hardly ever see YA historical fiction, so I might have to add The Other Countess to my TBR pile! I really want to read Divergent too :]
    Happy reading!

    In My Mailbox! :]

  3. Awesome mailbox!! I have a lot of these to read as well, and I can't wait to get started on them! Enjoy!

  4. Wow! what a huge mailbox you have! :) I love those books! I would definitely recommend DIVERGENT by Veronica Roth! It's an awesome book! :) I also like to read Waterfall, it's in my TBR list :)

    Anyway here's my 1st IMM, hope you can visit if you have time :)

  5. Great IMM haul, Daisy! Sirenz looks like a really fun read. Also Divergent is such an intense reading experience - be sure to leave a large block of time for that one so you can just devour it! :D

  6. What a mailbox. I am currently reading Legacy too. Loving it im bout 200 pages in. There are so many books in your mailbox i want to read so im not going to name them. However that Mermaid one looks great what is it about besides mermaids of course.
    Happy Reading.

  7. You have a nice list of books in your mailbox this week. I was so tempted to read the Twilight parody.
    Happy Reading,

  10. That's a lot of great books! That Twilight parody looks hilarious.

  11. Wow awesome books! Waterfall sounds good, I've been meaning to read it. Divergent is awesome if you haven't read it yet! :D Hope you enjoy all of these, happy reading!
