In My Mailbox #33


In My Mailbox is a weekly feature hosted by the wonderful The Story Siren where we get to drool with one another over the awesome books that came in the post this week



I have an ereader! FINALLY! I won this baby last week and it arrived yesterday. It will still probably take me a while to get used to text size and all it's little features, but I hope we will soon fall in love with each other. Of course, nothing will take away my love of a good, solid, strokeable novel :)

Sweet Evil!! I'll be reading this next because I need to pass it on to Lisa and once she's read it, we'll be sending it out to one of the lucky winners from our Valentine's Giveaways (you have all month to keep entering, with more prizes to come!). And yes. The guy on the cover looks even hotter in person. Thank you, Wendy!! <3

SUPER excited to read all of these books. They sound amazing, plus I have heard fantastic things about them, especially Article 5!! But... how to read them all at once?!

What's in your mailbox this week?

  1. I can't believe you WON an ereader! Wow. Hopefully you will love it. I love my kindle but yeah, nothing replaces the good ole fashioned book. ARTICLE 5!! I really want to read that. Be looking out for your review. I liked Stolen Away but it's not as great as Alyxandra Harvey's other books sadly. Alchemy of Forever looks amazing too. I WANT YOUR MAILBOX!

    1. I KNOW!! I was shoccked too! It was 25 word-or-less competition and while I was hoping, I wasn't really expecting to win :D Excited!

      Article 5 sounds freaking amazing and Kristen Simmons is SO sweet! <3 Stolen Away will be my first Alyxandra read, so if I don't happen to be blown away by it, I'll keep that in mind to still check out her other books!

  2. WOW! Winning an e-reader is amazing!! You'll get used to e-readers (and they're extremely handy for travelling!), I love mine but I still love my actually novels <3

  5. Ooh la la, Sweet Evil and Article 5 are calling out to me! Look at them, just sitting up there looking all delicious and readable. Those are some sexy books. And I'm going to go ahead and repeat what's been said above: YOU WON AN EREADER. Who just wins an ereader?! Is it okay that I hate you right now? Hahaha ;) Looks like you'll be having a fun week. Can't wait to read your reviews for these!

    1. Tell me about it. They're sitting less than a metre away from me and all I can hear is their siren song - the gentle rustle of pages whispering "Read me, Brodie! Read me, Brodie!" I'm having trouble resisting!

      Hahaha well provided you love me again tomorrow, I suppose I can live with that :P

  8. Oh, wow, congrats on your ereader!!! I really hope you come to love it. I, too, prefer physical books, but there's so much convenience and awesome that comes with these great little devices. And I know you hate reading stuff on your computer so now you don't have to suffer! ;D Enjoy it and your other reads!

    1. Yes!! I've missed out on so many ebooks I've had in the past because I read maybe 5 chapters on the computer and then give up because the eye strain is annoying. WHich is weird because I'm fine staring at the computer for hours on end wasting time LOL.

  9. That's AWESOME that you won an e-reader. Woo! Like you, I will always be in love with my paper and glue books, but with so many things going digital these days, I like having the option of an e-reader as well, so my Nook is a life-saver!

    1. I wasn't sure I was hearing right when I was told I won one! haha. So exciting! I'll have to get a case for it so I can take it with my when I go out. I always moan and groan about taking my actual books because the corners of paperbacks might get damaged or my water bottle might leak (not being paranoid! It HAS happened *sob*).

  10. Woot Hallelujah! Get onto it :P Really wanna read Article 5. And I got Alchemy too! Happy reading Brodes.

    1. Harper Collins do some of the BEST cover designs! And obviously know where to find the hottest guys ;D AND Kaidan has a BRITISH ACCENT. As if the swoonage couldn't get any better!

  15. BRODIE!!!!! E-READER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Yeeeee! I am HAPPY for you!!!
    And oh GOSH... those books!!!!!
    The Alchemy of Forever (though I prefer the American cover) looks like such a great read! Sweet Evil looks SO good as well, and swag! :D And Article 5 does have some FANTASTIC things being said about it!

    The other two I actually haven't heard of before but both look great too!
    Looking forward to ALL of your reviews! And I want to know how you get on with the Nook too, and if you'll let me, I may gift you with a novel just because I <3 you!!

    1. EEEEEEEEEEEE! I KNOW! *strokes ereader* He's so sexy <3 I wish I could start all of these books at once! Need extra brains and another two sets of eyes!

      Awwww you don't have to do that!! <3 You know you're one of the most amazing, sexy British-accented girls in the world, right?! I hope to de-virginise my ereader soon!

  16. Oh my gosh, you finally got an e-reader!!! That is SO cool, Brodie! <3 I have to admit that I'm still Team Paperback like you but having an e-reader is super duper and incredibly amazing! They always have a gazillion awesome deals that will probably multiply your TBR pile LOL! x) And I'm crossing my fingers that you love Article 5, because to say that I loved that book would be an UNDERSTATEMENT.

    Amazing mailbox this week, Brodie! I can't wait to read all of your bound-to-be amazing reviews for these bound-to-be amazing books! :) <3

    1. Haha I KNOW! As if I needed extra incentive to topple my crazy huge TBR! Le sigh. But who am I kidding? I LOVE that I have so much to choose from :D OMG your review for Article 5 made me even more crazy frantic to read this! Not sure when I'll be reading it, but damn well better be soon!

  17. OMG!! An e-reader. And a Kobo Touch!! *wants* That's soo awesome. I can't wait for them to finally come to Sweden! I love their app on my tablet and that I can in fact by EPUBs from their site as an international shopper. \o/

    And the books!! Ohhh, the books. Wow. What to say? They might be missing tomorrow? ;) LOL. No, but seriously, they all look SO great... I can't wait to get my hands on them. Want them all! Can't wait to hear your thoughts on them either. Glad to hear the guys even hotter in person too. ;) If you find a way to read them all at once, please let me know! Lol

    1. I hope they available in Sweden soon!! I love that you can read PDF files on them aswell. You can't edit the text size or font with a PDF, only zoom, but still. I've read that with other ereaders, you need to convert to a different format first. So woo!

      Hey now! *stuffs books down shirt* NO STEALIE! Heh, if I discover the secret method of reading at once, you will be the first I share it with :)

      Delete
  18. Who's the lucky one now? :D EEEEEE, SO HAPPY FOR YOUUUUU! And obviously if it was a writing contest, you would win! DO YOU KNOW how addictive those words you write are?

    So maaaaany awesome books this week! I can't wait to hear what you think of Sweet Evil and Article 5 because those both look AMAZING. Article 5 has been getting so much buzz lately! I really liked The Alchemy of Forever too, hope you do as well!

    Happy reading! <333

    1. Haha well I enter many 25 WOL contests, so I guess statistics show if you obsessively enter enough things, you're bound to win SOMETHING! :P

      I'm starting Sweet Evil now, yay! Article 5 is very soon, I hope. It's taking all my willpower not to crack that bad boy open right now :)
