In My Mailbox (8)

Happy Sunday, everybody!

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren.

Each week I will post books (or book-related things) that I've bought, won in contests, or received in the mail.

This week's mailbox has been exciting, so many new books to read and also review!

Books, I've won:

The Advice Girl L.A. Shaw which I won from Work A Day Reads' Splash Into Summer Giveaway.

The Advice Girl (The Dalara Series, Book One)Summary from Goodreads:

Kira and Sophia have been best friends since they were five years old. They share an apartment together, and tell each other everything.  

Everyone loves Sophia, and she is often called the advice girl by people who know her. Kira believes she knows her friend better than anyone. But in a mysterious accident, Sophia loses her life.

Kira is mourning the devastating loss when she finds a note addressed to her from beyond the grave. Kira realizes she doesn't know her friend as well as she thought, as she starts to uncover the truth. She falls into a deep depression, confused and lost, until a visit from a strange man puts her in the middle of a war between two secret societies.

Kira soon understands that she is in danger, and doesn't know who to trust. She has to fight for her own life now.

A Rancher's Pride by Barbara White Daille which I won from Once Upon A Chapter author giveaway.

From Goodreads:

A Rancher's Pride (Harlequin American Romance)Sam Robertson's life just changed. In one short day, he found out that he's a daddy; that his beautiful little girl, Becky, is deaf; and that her aunt, sign language teacher Kayla Ward, intends to fight him for custody.

There are plenty of reasons Sam shouldn't fall for Kayla. A city girl like her has no place on his ranch, particularly when she's his ex-wife's gorgeous sister. But thanks to the judge's orders, Sam's spending a lot of time with Kayla, trying to give Becky the stable home she's never known.

Despite their ongoing custody battle, Sam and Kayla's love for Becky brings them closer than they ever expected, and Sam knows that no matter who wins in court, he could still lose—Kayla or his daughter.

Books I've bought:

Happy reading!


  1. Great set! I really want to read Summer's Crossing.
    My IMM

  2. I love the cover of Summer's Crossing. It looks fantastic.

    Happy reading :-D

  3. Alison, I'm looking very much forward to read Summer's Crossing, too. I have to admit, that I have so far read none of Julie Kagawa's books. That would be the first to read. I've heard a lot of good about her Iron series.

    April, yes it is beautiful! Thanks for coming by!
