IMM#26

Well, we had the first bit of sunshine and a hint of spring warmth this week! How about you?
By the way, my laptop does look totally dead, so until I can find someone to retrieve all my info and programs like Xara and Artisteer from the hard disk, I'm putting my Monthly features on hold. 

So, back to my mailbox, here is what I've got...

Egalleys


Bought

Camille is my absolute favorite of D'Artigo sisters, plus the book was on insane offer from Amazon £ 2.99!

Ottoman Empire and a beautiful British spy. This book has been on my radar since I first heard of it. You know my penchant for spies :) Plus kindle version is only £ 2.49 - no excuse not to buy it!

Review

Thank you, Penguin UK! I was surprised to receive a horror book, but I will give it a go.

Library

I've received book #2 in this series recently, so being a bit OCD about books, I  couldn't just read it out of order, hence the need to read book #1 first.

Freebies

Believe it or not, I've never read Claudia Gray before. This book was free as a preorder from Amazon for ages, and it was delievered on my Kindle last week. It's still FREE, grab yours if you are in UK!

This is a novella about David and Boston - characters from Ambasadora by Heidi Ruby Miller, whose book I read and loved last year. Thank you, Heidi, for notifying me that it was free.

This is it. What's in your mailbox, ladies and gents?

Complimentary music and Sunday man candy per usual...

I love this girl! She is only 15 and so very talented. This song brings me to tears every time.
As for man candy, meet gorgeous Tommy Dunn!
Does anyone think of Viggo Mortensen looking at him? Anyone?
Happy Sunday!

I picked up Evernight this week as well - bless the Amazon freebies for expanding my reading circle!
I'm curious to see what you think of the left Hand of God series...for me it was different form usual fantasy, but still not sure I like the characters much!

They promised us some sunshine, and yesterday I made my balcony ready for spring. But there was no sunshine and it was just a little bit cold :S So But hopefully it get warmer in a few days.

And your mailbox looks fantastic! Hope you would enjoy your books :D

I LOVE BIRDY. I had her songs/covers on repeat the entire week. :) 'nuff said.

The Peculiars' cover is sooooo pretty, right? That's what drawn me to this book, but the read isn't half that exciting. Sad. :(

Nevertheless, I hope you enjoy your books! ^^

Here's my IMM. ♥

Michelle said...

Thanks for stopping by my IMM, you have a great variety of books this week and The Watcher looks interesting the cover alone would make me want to buy it :D.

Joy (joyous reads) said...

The Peculiars sounds interesting! Looking forward to your thoughts about it. Have a great week, Kara! <3

Liz. R said...

I actually have a paperback copy of Evernight, but I got the Kindle one too because it had bonus content! :P. Hope you enjoy it and happy reading! :)

Jessica@a GREAT read said...

I haven't started the Evernight series. Thinking I may need to one day! Will keep an eye out for your review to see if I need to make it sooner!

Here's my IMM

Have a GREAT day!

A Secret In Her Kiss looks EXCELLENT. I mean, it has a really cool concept and is not regency England, I think. I'll have to look that one up.

Happy reading!

Darlene said...

Ooooooooooooh, you got The Peculiars! That one looks really good!! So does The Watcher!

Enjoy all your new books!!

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my mailbox: http://darlenesbooknook.blogspot.com/2012/02/in-my-mailbox-february-26-2012.html

Sooo jealous of EVERNIGHT - sadly it isn't available for free on Amazon Germany. :( But I hope you'll enjoy it (and of course the rest of this awesome bunch of books)!

Have a lovely week,
Carina

Rebecca (Kindle Fever) said...

Yay, looks like a great IMM! *curious* I love to stalk books on Goodreads on Sundays, hahah. Can't wait to hear your thoughts on The Peculiars. :D

Hannah said...

The Peculiars looks so interesting but I reeeeally need to put myself on a NetGalley ban!

Michelle Greathouse said...

Great mailbox, Kara. I finished Courting Darkness a couple of weeks ago and loved it! Sadly, I read the next one, Shaded Vision, this past week and it wasn't as good.

I think I have one of those Claudia Gray novels on the shelf - but haven't gotten to it yet. I look forward to your thoughts.

Have a great day,

M

I like the title "The Peculiars" and I'm a bit of a sucker for a strong title and good cover!

Oh, and I couldn't read books out of sequence either!

P.S. Thanks for visiting My IMM earlier! x

Mimi Valentine said...

Evernight is free??? Oh my gosh, Karina, you make me want to visit the UK even more than I did before! x) LOL I've heard amazing things about Claudia Gray's books too but for some reason I haven't read one either -- I really need to change that! And hellloooooooo, Tommy Dunn! ;) <3

Amazing mailbox this week, Karina! I hope you enjoy all of the books you got! :)

The Peculiars has such an awesome cover! Totally catches my eye and has me curious! Awesome book week!

That song is so beautiful! I can see why it brings tears to your eyes. I'm definitely gonna look her up! She's awesome, so talented!

The Peculiars looks like such a fun book! The Watchers looks really good too! I haven't read Evernight either but I have it - just need to find the time :D

I hope you love all of your books! :)

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
