In My Mailbox {6}

Hi Guys, Happy Easter to those celebrating and hope you've all had an amazing weekend. So it's Sunday which means it's IMM time! This is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren, I love this meme because I get to show off my book collection :) I've had a quite but exciting week this week so here goes!

Books Received for Review:


The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa (Blood of Eden #1) - received via Netgalley.
In a future world, Vampires reign. Humans are blood cattle. And one girl will search for the key to save humanity.
Allison Sekemoto survives in the Fringe, the outermost circle of a vampire city. By day, she and her crew scavenge for food. By night, any one of them could be eaten.
Some days, all that drives Allie is her hatred of them. The vampires who keep humans as blood cattle. Until the night Allie herself is attacked—and given the ultimate choice. Die… or become one of the monsters.
Faced with her own mortality, Allie becomes what she despises most. To survive, she must learn the rules of being immortal, including the most important: go long enough without human blood, and you will go mad.
Then Allie is forced to flee into the unknown, outside her city walls. There she joins a ragged band of humans who are seeking a legend—a possible cure to the disease that killed off most of humankind and created the rabids, the mindless creatures who threaten humans and vampires alike.
But it isn't easy to pass for human. Especially not around Zeke, who might see past the monster inside her. And Allie soon must decide what—and who—is worth dying for. 


EEEEK! So excited to have got my hands on this. Absolutely cannot wait to start reading this! Heard great things so yeah...super excited!

Dark Kiss by Michelle Rowen (Nightwatchers #1) - received via Netgalley.
I don't do dangerous. Smart, ├╝ber-careful, ordinary Samantha-that's me. But I just couldn't pass up a surprise kiss from my number-one unattainable crush. A kiss that did something to me...something strange. Now I feel hungry all the time, but not for food. It's like part of me is missing-and I don't know if I can get it back. Then there's Bishop. At first I thought he was just a street kid, but the secrets he's keeping are as intense as his unearthly blue eyes. If he's what I think he is, he may be the only one who can help me. But something terrifying is closing in, and the one chance Bishop and I have to stop it means losing everything I ever wanted and embracing the darkness inside me.... NIGHTWATCHERS When angels and demons must work together, something beyond evil is rising...

I've been hearing good things about this too, plus just look at that cover...I love it!

Books I downloaded for free from amazon.co.uk:

A Touch of Greek by Tina Folsom (Out of Olympus #1)
Selfish and gorgeous Greek God Triton is cast out of Olympus after seducing Zeus’ mistress and can only gain reentry if he finds a woman who loves him for his kindness and selflessness, not his beauty. When the mortal Sophia – recovering from an eye operation and virtually blind – needs a home healthcare worker, he takes on the role, hoping she will be his ticket home.
While defending Sophia from an unknown adversary, Triton’s protective instinct emerges. At the same time rival Gods do everything to doom him to failure. And even if Triton can win Sophia’s love, will he throw it away to return home, or will he lose his own heart to the only woman who truly sees him?
A Touch of Greek is the first book in the humorous and sexy paranormal romance series Out of Olympus following the romantic adventures of four Gods: Triton, Dionysus, Eros, and Hermes. 


I downloaded this just before I got NetGalley approval so it's kind of both for review and for fun. I love anything to do with the Greek Gods and Goddesses so hopefully I should enjoy this :)

That's all this week. What did you get in your Mailbox?
Catch you later.
