Welcome to  In My Mailbox, a meme run by The Story Siren where each week over 200 bloggers post on their blogs the books they have bought, received to review or won in the past week.
To find out more information, get involved yourself or see what's in other bloggers mailboxes this week head over to The Story Siren or to find out what is in my mailbox this week, keep reading.
Don't forget to comment and post your IMM link or just let me know what's in your mail box this week

So my beautiful daughter Elizabeth is exactly one month old today so I figured it was the perfect time to attempt to post on my blog again.  While i haven't done as much reading as previous, reading, especially on my kindle and ipad have been one of the things to  get me through the long nights of feeding and trying to get Elizabeth to sleep. Of course finding the free time to write blog entries and reviews is going to be the interesting part.  Currently she is lying on my lap dead tired but with eyes wide open determined not to miss a thing. So if i get distracted mid post you know why :-P

Anyhew here is what has arrived in my mailbox over the last couple weeks

To Review:


The Immortal Rules
The Six

 The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa (HarlequinTEEN via Netgalley)
The Six by K. B Hoyle (Smith Publicity - The Writer's Coffee Shop via Netgalley)
Shift by Kim Curran (Angry Robot via Netgalley)
Blackwood by Gwenda Bond (Angry Robot via Netgalley)


 I did some pre-ordering before Elizabeth's birth and these are the ones that have arrived in the past three weeks:

The Calling by Kelley Armstrong
Spellbound by Rachel Hawkins
Balthazar by Claudia Gray 

Actually I received Balthazar before Elizabeth was born and managed to get it signed by Claudia Gray while she was in Australia but it never got to feature in an IMM and I thought it should.  Here is a photo of a very pregnant me (I was 9 days overdue at the time - i think elizabeth waited so i could go to the signing before being born :-P) and Claudia Gray:


The library has been my best friend lately and Elizabeth and I try to make at least on trip there a week. Her for baby rhyme time and me for more books  Here is what I currently have on loan:
