In My Mailbox [16]

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely Kristi at The Story Siren.

I only got two books this week (both bought), but they're great books!! And both have very pretty, very cool covers as well...


Shadowfever by Karen Marie Moning - the final book in the Fever series [book #5] - Goodreads // review
I loved it. Great ending to the series, despite a few little issues with it. Mostly I am a very, very happy Fever fan!!


The Iron Witch by Karen Mahoney - The Iron Witch Saga #1 - Goodreads // review
Loved this debut! And look how pretty!! This is the Waterstones exclusive edition with pretty gold pages too:


Okay, I know the picture doesn't show it too well, but I promise the edges of the book are gold in color!

Confession time: I actually got 3 books this week, cause I totally forgot I preordered a copy of The Iron Witch months ago cause it was half price on Amazon, until it showed up in the post on Thursday. I then still went hunting for the gold paged one cause Kaz had been nice enough to tweet pictures of it and make me want one too badly ;) I shall give the 'regular' UK one to one of my best friends when she's back from Uni and keep the pretty gold one ;)

So that's it for me this week! What did you get in your mailbox?

I received The Iron Witch as well this week and I have to agree the cover is gorgeous, but wow, Shadowfever's cover is awesome! Love it!

I didn't understand Calla's feelings for Shay - I am definitely Team Ren!

Thanks for stopping by!

If Amazon will quit holding my copy of Shadowfever hostage I would be so happy, glad you got yours and also the pretty special copy of Iron Witch.. Your friend is lucky to get the extra copy, very nice of you Cem...

Nice books! I really want the waterstones edition of The Iron Witch, but after 3 trips there this week when they hadn't managed to unpack it, I gave up and bought it somewhere else. Only just started, but I love it so far!

Wow, very pretty covers. I almost picked up the gold-edged The Iron Witch the other and then I didn't. I don't know when I'll be near a Waterstone's again, damn :( Anyway, happy reading!
