R.A.K. & In My Mailbox: August 2011

In My Mailbox is a meme hosted by The Story Siren, where we share the books that we have bought or received each week.

Please note that this IMM is for the entire month of August, 2011! 
There is no way I get this many books in one week, although I totally wish I did! :)

Book links lead to Goodreads

First of all, the amazing Lauren from Ravishing Reads surprised me with this pile of books for R.A.K.! I seriously went crazy when I opened the box because, well, LOOK at these books! Historical fiction (and one memoir) for the historical fiction lover. ♥

Thanks Lauren!!

From top to bottom:
Harriette Wilson's Memoirs by Lesley Blanch
The Duchess by Amanda Foreman
Cranberry Queen by Kathleen DeMarco
The King's Daughter by Sandra Worth

What's in YOUR mailbox?


  1. Ooooooo, :) I so want to Wolfsbane and Uncommon Criminals, so jealous and I hope you like Blood Red Road. It is a little obtuse, but awesome! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Wow you have a lot of awesome books! So many good titles and ones I want to look into.

    Happy reading


  3. Holy cow you've got so many GREAT books to choose from. I'd probably go for Anna first :)

    Our IMM

  4. Dang! Glad you have your work cut out for you! I'm really looking forward to In the name of the star, and blood red road was great (after I got past the odd way of speaking). I have waterfall on my kindle but really need to read it. Great IMM!

    Here’s my IMM!

  5. Oh wow, you have LOADS in your MAILBOX! Yes, I do agree with Scarlett above that you do have your reading cut out for you. But oh such fun, that would be. ;-)

    Here's our IMM:

  6. I'm reading Wanderlove right now and really enjoying it.

    Traveling with Pomegranates was hit and miss for me. I thought the daughter spent too much time whining in that book.

  7. Great haul! I love the Vampire Academy series, and Life As We Knew It was also a good book.

    Enjoy your books!
    Books of Amber

  8. Great books this week! The Time In Between is marvelous! Hope you enjoy it! Happy Reading! : )

  9. Erm wow what an awesome haul!!! The name of the star is supposed to be really good!!

    My Post

  10. Wow you did get a ton of great books this month in the mail. I hope you enjoy all of those and I can't wait for your reviews on some of them. Happy reading! :)

  11. wow loads!! I love Frostbite, and touch of frost looks really really good! Hope you enjoy everything

    The Cait Files

  12. Love firelight. Hope you like it too!
    Happy Reading!
    My IMM

  13. Ummm...that is one epic IMM. I am totally jealous. I have been debating on Blood Red Road so I will be interested in what you think. Also you have to let me know what you think of The Dovekeepers. It sounds really good!

  14. Wow! That's a lot of awesome books you got this month! And I thought the 2 books I got this month was a lot... xD Anyway, you got some REALLY good books this month. I really hope you enjoy them all! Shiver is really good :)

  15. Man!!! I thought I was in the weeds with so many books, look at you! These titles look fun, I'm very jealous. Love your blog!


  16. Great IMM. :) Haha, good idea to compile the haul for a month in one post. I'd probably forget which books I've picked up over the course of the month but now that I'm back in school, the number should hopefully be reduced. I've been meaning to get a copy of Blood Red Road but I haven't done so yet! But that's a book that NEEDS to be part of my collection.

  17. ooo, I can imagine if this lot of books came in one week, GASP. :)

    You got some rocking reads.

    have a great rest of the week :)


Thanks for commenting! I read each and every one, and reply as soon as I can :)

Please note: The Reading Fever is an award-free zone. I am very flattered, but comments are all the thanks I need.
