In My Mailbox! (1)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by the Story Siren here

Can you believe it? I actually have an in my mailbox post this week!! Well, okay, technically the books didn't come via the mailbox, or even come past my front door...

The came flying through the air via Amazon and landed inside my kindle. Clever books!

So, here's the books.

Forever Mine by Elizabeth Reyes
Seventeen-year old Sarah’s life is turned upside down when her single mom is sent to jail. She’s forced to move, leaving behind everything she’s ever known, including her best friend Sydney. Lost and bitter in a new school, her one goal is to save money and move back home. Then she meets Angel Moreno.

Enigmatic but gorgeous, Angel is almost too good to be true. Except for one thing, his archaic belief that guys and girls can never be “just friends”. The problem? Sarah’s best friend Sydney is not a girl.

With their unexpected romance intensifying to places neither ever experienced, how long can Sarah keep Angel in the dark about the guy waiting for her back home? 

This isn't usually my thing but I spotted it over a month ago and I still wanted to read it so I thought 69p wasn't going to break the bank. The story sounds pretty cute and the reviews I have read are positive so we shall see. 

The Princess's Dragon
 A princess is unwillingly transformed into a dragon and now she must learn how to fly! Can Sondra find herself while trapped in the body of a monster?

This is the charming tale of a princess named Sondra who is determined to prove that there are no such things as dragons and magic. Her denial of all things magical leads to her transformation by a grumpy old wizard into a dragon. She must learn how to survive in a body that is not her own with the help of an ancient and intimidating male dragon. Along the way, she discovers that things are never what they appear to be and she must prove herself worthy of a love more magical than anything she has ever denied.

This was an impulse buy on my part. I found it on a kindle fantasy list on Goodreads and immediately thought, this is my kind of book. A girl who doesn't believe in magic and does everything she can to prove it doesn't gets turned into a dragon. CLASS! A review for this will be up very soon. (oh and the cover is sooo pretty)

And last but not least

Winter Passage by Julie Kagawa
Meghan Chase used to be an ordinary girl...until she discovered that she is really a faery princess. After escaping from the clutches of the deadly Iron fey, Meghan must follow through on her promise to return to the equally dangerous Winter Court with her forbidden love, Prince Ash. But first, Meghan has one request: that they visit Puck—Meghan's best friend and servant of her father, King Oberon—who was gravely injured defending Meghan from the Iron Fey. Yet Meghan and Ash's detour does not go unnoticed. They have caught the attention of an ancient, powerful hunter—a foe that even Ash may not be able to defeat.... An eBook exclusive story from Julie Kagawa's Iron Fey series.

I actually haven't read ANY of the Iron Fey series but I have been desperate to and although this isn't the first book it was FREE for kindle on Amazon so I thought I would give it a bash.

So that is my IMM for this week and I am crazy glad to actually have something after 3 (?) months of nothing. Happy dance.

So what is in your mail box this week?


  1. That cover for Winter's Passage is gorgeous!!! I hadn't heard about the other two, but I hope you like them.

  2. Princess's Dragon sounds like it could be intersting. I'm curious to see what you'll think of it.
    Happy reading. :)
