IMM#17 or my Christmas haul

Don't you get all excited the closer it is to Christmas? I do!

Here is what I got this week...


Assassins and dragons, - what a perfect combination! *grinning* This rounds up my galley haul for Netgalley month in January very nicely :)


Thanks so much to lovely Carolyn from The Book Chick City for her amazing giveaway and to Chasity from LovLivLife Reviews for preordering The Doomsday Vault for me! It was supposed to come out in January, but the book arrived today (way earlier) from TBD, and I'm ecstatic! :)

For review

Thank you, Berkley UK! It was unexpected, and I did read Allie Beckstrom books up to Magic at The Gate, so this will go into a giveaway pile.


Smokeless Fire, - get yours (UK, US)!

What's in your mailbox, ladies and gents? 

Christmas funnies edition...

Merry Christmas to all paranormal and urban fantasy fans!

Very nice. Thanks for letting me know that Firelight is out now on NetGalley. I need to request that one. Love the cover for Assasins in Love. Great mailbox.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
