In My Mailbox -38- and a Winner!

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren every Sunday. In My Mailbox is a weekly meme that lets everyone see what books you have received or bought that week.
For Review
1. The Abused Werewolf Rescue Group - Catherine Jinks
2. The Secret of Ka - Christopher Pike. (Second copy sent for giveaway!)
3. The Shenandoah Spy - Francis Hamit

Many thanks goes to Anita from Thomas Allen Publishers for sending me these books for review and giveaway, as well as Francis Hamit for sending me a copy of his book for review.

Bought
1. Personal Demons - Lisa Desrochers
2. Wicked Game - Jeri Smith-Ready
3. Bad to the Bone - Jeri Smith-Ready
4. Bayou Moon - Ilona Andrews
5. Daughter of the Blood - Anne Bishop
6. Crave - J.R. Ward
7. Eat Prey Love - Kerrelyn Sparks

I hadn't splurged per say in the last few weeks, and I had some birthday money left over, so the end result was these books this week. I ended up buying a book I already owned (Daughter of the Blood), but I love this cover better. It's a series that I've never read before but my interest was piqued by Tori from Book Faery when she mentioned the series on her blog, as one of her favourite series. I can't wait to read it. :) 

Absolute Value of -1 Winner

Congratulations goes to Laina as she won my gently used copy of Absolute Value of -1, as well as a couple of bookmarks. I've already been in contact with her, so I'll be sending the book and bookmarks out shortly. Congratulations again! :D

News

Scott Nicholson was here earlier this week as part of his 90 Days of Horror blog tour. He wrote about "Hillbilly Horrors". Feel free to check out the post and leave a comment. You could win a Kindle!

I also posted my review for Swati Avasthi's Split this week. She is raising money for Domestic Violence Awareness and has stated that she will donate $1 per comment on the blog tour posts for a total of $250. Please comment on my review to help support this cause. Auction items are also live, and several are featured on each blog post. You can enter the auction through the badge on my sidebar to the right. 

I think that is all for me this week. What did you get in your mailbox? :)
