In My Mailbox #9 - New books this week!

In my Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren in which bloggers share the books they have received each week. 

I got some great books this week, including a competition prize. Yay! No sign of my copy of Linger yet, though. It should be here soon, I hope!

Click on links for Goodreads descriptions.


The Poisoned House by Michael Ford.
I received this one for review, and I have to say I love the both the book cover and it's description. All spooky and gothic! Looking forward to reading this one.

Stolen by Lesley Pearse.
I bought this one having read a number of positive reviews.  I haven't read any of Lesley Pearse's other books, but this one sounds like a good mystery & something I should enjoy.

By Midnight by Mia James.
This was my competition win. I've been really excited about this book for a while now and as it contains vampires, a boarding school and a creepy cemetery, I'm sure I'll enjoy it!

I also received  Infinite Days by Rebecca Maizel this week courtesy of Bookmooch. Lucky me! I've been excited about this book for a while now.



Lenah Beaudonte is, in many ways, your average teen: the new girl at Wickham Boarding School, she struggles to fit in enough to survive and stand out enough to catch the eye of the golden-boy lacrosse captain. But Lenah also just happens to be a recovering five-hundred-year-old vampire queen. After centuries of terrorizing Europe, Lenah is able to realize the dream all vampires have -- to be human again. After performing a dangerous ritual to restore her humanity, Lenah entered a century-long hibernation, leaving behind the wicked coven she ruled over and the eternal love who has helped grant her deep-seated wish.

Until, that is, Lenah draws her first natural breath in centuries at Wickham and rediscovers a human life that bears little resemblance to the one she had known. As if suddenly becoming a teenager weren’t stressful enough, each passing hour brings Lenah closer to the moment when her abandoned coven will open the crypt where she should be sleeping and find her gone. As her borrowed days slip by, Lenah resolves to live her newfound life as fully as she can. But, to do so, she must answer ominous questions: Can an ex-vampire survive in an alien time and place? What can Lenah do to protect her new friends from the bloodthirsty menace about to descend upon them? And how is she ever going to pass her biology midterm?


If you've already read any of these books, I'd love to know what you though! Share your IMM links in comments. :)
