The Calling by Kelley Armstrong (Unsolicited) – FINISHED COPY! I may have jumped a little because I LURVE KELLEY ARMSTRONG FOREVER AND EVER!

Siege by Rhiannon Frater (Unsolicited) – I also have the second book in this series, but alas, not the first. I suppose I need to order that soon.
The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa (Netgalley) – oh fuck yes, I was so excited to get approved for this bad boy, because A)Julie is awesome and B) I’m still shhhh don’t tell *whispers* into vampires.


Sailor Moon vol. 1 by Naoko Takeuchi (Once upon a time, I was a HUGE Sailor Moon fan, like I even had a Sailor card. You guys remember that? Where you got points and moved up levels depending on how long you were there, and I used to read the fan fiction for it and every thing. Fricken yes.)
Sailor Moon vol. 2 by Naoko Takeuchi
Sailor Moon vol. 3 by Naoko Takeuchi
To Wed A Wicked Earl by Olivia Parker (Kindle) – STEAMY CITY YES!
The Duke Of Shadows by Meredith Duran (Kindle) – This noise was on sale AND on my wish list. BOOM PURCHASED IMPULSIVELY.
The Mumbo Jumbo Circus by Jane George (Kindle) – FREEEE. Plus, I think FYA reviewed it and those ladies stay gold.
As An Earl Desires by Lorraine Heath (Kindle) – About those earls….
Unholy Ghosts by Stacia Kane (Kindle) – 99 cents and Kane isn’t batshit about reviews and PLUS I want to try urban fantasy. Because I like cites and magic and wizards and witches.
GAME OF MOTHERCUSSING THRONES SEASON 1 DVD. – Watched the first two episodes, that Joffrey is a piece of work, yo. Also? I LOVE TYRION. AND JON SNOW. AND DANY!

  1. OH MY GOD SAILOR MOON. I am officially your fangirl, April.

  2. Wooow amazing mailbox!! Enjoy The Calling!! And Immortal Rules <3 <3 Aaaa so so good 🙂 🙂 And Sailor Moon!! Aaaaw I remember when I was litle I used to watch it everyday! I couldn't get enough! I miss this 🙂

    Happy Easter!! 🙂 😉

  3. If you want ace urban fantasy, read The Hollows series by Kim Harrison. I hear it may be a tv series. (It has elves, vampires, PIXIES!, demons…it’s a smorgasbord of supernatural creatures and what can I say? I’m a total fangirl of the series.)

  4. THE IMMORTAL RULES. I can’t freaking wait.


  5. MY FIRST E-MAIL ADDY EVER WAS A REFERENCE TO SAILER MERCURY. Just thought you should know. That’s right I’m SUCH a nerd that not only do I like Sailor Moon, my favorite sailor was the nerdy smart girl. I also still have a Sailor Moon alarm clock that is probably the most annoying thing ever constructed by man. What I’m trying to say here is Sailor Moon is awesome and so are you. XOXO ~Heidi

    P.S. YAY for trying Urban Fantasy and watching GoT. Also win.

    • I love learning just how many of my peeps were Sailor Moon fans.

      OMG, I loved Sailor Mercury and her pretty blue hair and how chill and smart she was.

      And okay, live in JEALOUSY of your Sailor Moon alarm clock.

      Also? I am pumped to try urban fantasy.

  6. Great mailbox! Especially the wine. 🙂 I so have to get into Game of Thrones … I have the first book and hope to get to it soon AND the first season of the TV show. I think I might catch up by the time season 3 comes out on TV. I hear it’s awesome! And hoorah for Immortal Rules! I’m hoping to read that one next. 🙂

  7. Am I a dummy because I do not know anything about Sailor Moon? I feel oddball right now!

    Also I was wondering when you were gonna have wine up in here. 😉

    • Naw, you aren’t a dummy! Maybe you just missed that wave of awesome.

      It IS cool though.

      And yes, I can’t believe I haven’t showed off my wine purchases. Although it would be the same thing every week, cheap Sutter Home hahaha.

  8. I love Kelley Armstrongs books too they’re so good! Especially her latest two books! Here’s my IMM!

    ~Paige @ Comfort Books

  9. OH AND I CAN’T BELIEVE YOU HADN’T SEEN GAME OF THRONES YET. You are in for a TREAT. and how could you forget to say SEAN BEAN!? I LOVE Sean Bean. I am a legit fan girl.

  10. The Immortal Rules looks fantastic. Can’t go wrong with Julie Kagawa. Unholy Ghosts looks like a good one too.
    Happy reading, drinking, and viewing!

  11. I scared my husband I whooped so loud when I got my approval email for The Immortal Rules….the request just. kept. hanging. there. AHHH!

    I can’t wait to read The Calling, either. I really liked the The Gathering. And Stacia Kane! I am such a fangirl for her that when I write the reviews I am pretty sure it just comes out sounding like “sqee, gush, sqee, sqee, gush, gush, gush…”

    • HAHAHHAA I definitely scare Tony every time I get approved for books I am dying to read on Netgalley.

      ALSO that vote of confidence for Stacia Kane? OH YES I AM PUMPED!

  12. Looks like a fun mailbox! I was scanning your post for the story behind the wine, was it a gift? Is it for review? I want to review wine! LOL

    Have a super Sunday!!!

  13. Yay Sailor Moon! And Game of Thrones! So jealous!

  14. AHHH. The Calling is going to be great, I just know it. And so is The Immortal Rules! 😀

    Thanks for checking out my IMM!
    Happy reading!

    -Lexi, the Literature Lion

  15. Salmon Run Wine! That’s right near me! Hope you enjoyed it (and your books of course!!!)

  16. such fabulous books this week! i’m going to have to check out some of those kindle book… you always have such spot-on goodies!

    And GAME OF THRONES! So glad to see you are watching it! Loved the first season! Have you read the books… I think I remember seeing that you’ve read one perhaps. What do you think of the show compared to the books?

    • Thanks, Kristi!

      And I just spend a lot of time combing Amazon for the deals.

      Also. I read the first book. And I think the show does a great job adapting the books, like you can’t put everything in, but they do well with it.

  17. Ooh Sailor Moon! I’m totally going to have to check this book out. I can’t wait to read your review for The Calling! I hear it’s even better than The Gathering, which I enjoyed. Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy your goodies!

  18. Ha! love your vampire confession;)

  19. GAME. OF. THRONES. There’s lots of awesome in this mailbox, but I seriously can’t wait for you to see the whole first season of GoT. It’s completely excellent! YAY!

  20. *focuses on wine* YAY for the wine part!

    Oooh, and the books too! I’m hearing so much about The Immortal Rules. Can’t wait to hear what you think of it. Still undecided about whether or not I should read it! 🙂

  21. Looks like you got some awesome books this week. Been seeing Royal Street everywhere lately.


  22. you’ll love the immortal rules, it’s really amazing! It’s the same for ROyal street, it was a great surprise too. Unholy ghost is really interesting but I tink we can only like or dislike it. Enjoy all your new books! Happy reading.

    • I think a lot of books are like or dislike, I am hoping I fall on the side of Like for Unholy Ghosts.

      Thanks for your feedback about Royal Street and The Immortal Rules 😀

  23. Great books! I am 80% through Immortal Rules and it is fantastic! I haven’t read the Iron Fey series (not available on Kindle in Australia) but am going to hunt them down when I finish because she is such a great writer 🙂

    Game of Thrones I picked up for my birthday just before Easter – soooo good!

    My IMM:

    Happy reading!

  24. OMGosh awesome IMM this week! I really want to read The Gathering, and I LOVE those covers, they are so gorgeous! And I love that you got in Sailor Moon comics, I was totally obsessed with Sailor Moon when I was in high school, and I still think the series is so adorable– the comics and the TV series! Enjoy everything you got in! 😀

    You can check out my IMM video and post for this week at the link below– Happy Reading! 🙂

  25. I second what Nafiza said, The Hollows by Kim Harrison is FABULOUS! I swear every book just gets better and better!!! I hope you get a chance to check it out! And also. . . *whispers* I still like vampires too!

  26. SAILOR MOON! I am loving all of the fangirls here. I cannot wait to get my hands on those books.

    And I squeed/squealed/dancing and basically drove my boyfriend crazy when I got my approval for The Immortal Rules. I think I showed it to him, and anyone else who held still long enough, on my Kindle about a dozen times. xD

    Happy reading!

  27. Nice haul! I’ve been meaning to read some of Kelly Armstrongs books for a while. everyone raves about them!

    Heres my IMM

    AWESOME HAUL! I’m really looking to reading UNRAVELING whenever I get it.

    Here’s my mailbox

  28. I really want Royal Street. I’m going to have to see about getting a copy soon!
    And I got my (signed & dedicated) copy of The Immortal Rules a couple of weeks ago – I can’t wait to start reading it!!

    Dani @ Pen to Paper

  29. I need to start watching Game of Thrones; it looks like something I’d enjoy! Might have to go get season 1! I’m so looking forward to The Immortal Rules; vampires in dystopia is going to be an interesting twist!

  30. Great IMM! The Gathering and The Immortal Rules looks amazing, I’m super jealous you have them! =]

  31. I love Kelley Armstrong’s books! And Game of Thrones was interesting to watch. I’m preparing to read the book, so we’ll see how that goes. Great haul this week!

    Thanks for visiting my IMM.

  32. Yeah alright, maybe vampires are kinda okay (I’m still in the early stages of conversion), but I’m stoked to see there’s a zombie lurking in your mailbox – zombie-win! 😉

    You should get the first As The World Dies book – there’s some kick-arse chicks!

    Have a great week!

  33. I really need to get on reading The Gathering. I loved Kelley’s Darkest Powers trilogy so I’m not sure why I haven’t started the other.

  34. Amazing haul! I was so excited about getting NetGalley-approved for Immortal Rules too! The Gathering sounds so good – glad you liked it! I think I’m going to start the Darkest Powers series first – just got The Summoning last week. Hope you enjoy all your new stuff! <3

  35. Love Armstrong the mostest. But why The Gathering is sitting on my self unread is beyond me.

  36. Hi! Thanks for stopping by my IMM 🙂

    You have such awesome stuff – especially the Sailor Moon! I have every episode they ever made too 🙂 And Game of Thrones is awesome, I hope you love it. I really want to read The Gathering and The Calling, I hope I get to soon.

    Happy reading!

    My IMM!

  37. Looks like you have a nice haul for this week!

    Happy reading,

  38. Royal Street and The Immortal Rules sound the most intriguing. They seem to be going around the blogs a lot lately. I have added both to my TBR list since I have heard about them.

    Been meaning to get a copy of The Game of Thrones tv series, but I kind of want to read the books first. Yeah – kinda nerdy, but hey, I love books.

    And yes, Sailor Moon kicks ass.

  39. Great haul, love love love Sailor Moon! Enjoy everythign!

  40. HAHAHAHAHA. I grew up with Sailor Moon, and I have everything that you can view. But I have not read the manga. What the what is up with that?!

    AND, bro, I know PRECISELY what you mean about Immortal Rules. I’m barely restraining myself from kicking everything else I’m reading to the curb and going FOR WHAT I HAVE BEEN DYING TO READ. XD I am STILL into vampires and I COULD SHOT THAT I LOVE VAMPIRES TO THE WORLD. Hello, world *waves*.

    I’m mentally berating myself for slacking on Kelley Armstrong. She is so awesome and I’m failing her by not picking up her second series. I EFFING LOVED her first series (Chloe and Derek <33), so I HAVE to get on that 😀

    Have an amazing reading week!

    — Asher

  41. Oooohohh, I’m very excited for The Immortal Rules! The cover alone…kicks butt!

    I’m with Asheley, I’m not in on the Sailor Moon. I think that was after my time. I am OLD! 🙂

    I am also behind and haven’t watched The Game of Thrones yet. So many people I know are big fans and there are many comments and jokes that go right over my head. I need to rectify this!

  42. i still haven’t read any kelley armstrong. terrible, i know. and yay for immortal rules! i got it on ng as well and am excited to read it. and i still love vampires, too. i also bought unholy ghosts when it was on sale. i keep hearing great things about it and it was so cheap! looks like an awesome haul this week. happy reading!

  43. Oooh, Game of Thrones! <3 I LOVE Jon… and I wish I had a gun so I could kill Joffrey. He's so irritating and childish -_-
    The Gathering has been in my TBR pile for a few months.. it sounds very interesting! <3
    Thank you for stopping by my blog.

    Enjoy your new books (and series and wine) 😉

  44. Nice haul! I love Rhiannon Frater’s zombie series. Very much looking forward to “Siege”.

  45. Megan @ Unearthly Reviews. says

    THE IMMORTAL RULES? So jealous! I absolutely love Julie’s writing, but NetGalley wouldn’t approve my request. ): Awesome list! Happy reading!

  46. I still haven’t read anything by Julie Kagawa. I’m sure I’d love her books though, and eventually I’d love to find the time to read them.

  47. Yay!!!! Love the enthusiasm!!!!!!

    Your pile of books looks SO great – and SO… many of ’em!!! I’ve heard great things about so many of them, I’m sure you’re in for GOOD TIMES!!!

    Thx for hoppin’ by my Sunday!! Happy Easter!!!

  48. The Calling was really good, a lot of things are revealed 🙂 Enjoy all of your books!

    My IMM

  49. So much nostalgia with the Sailor Moon volumes! I loooove that series 😀

  50. Game of Thrones!!! I hate Joffrey..I really do… creepy little child..
    And Immortal Rules! I’m so excited to read that one!
    I have never read any Kelley Armstrong, I think I should get around to that..

    I hope you enjoy all your new books and happy reading!

  51. I still need to read Kelley Armstrong’s books. I’ve heard so many great things about them! And Congrats on getting The Immortal Rules!, I’m sure it will be great 🙂 Enjoy and thanks for stopping by!

  52. Sweet! Books and wine make for an awesome mailbox! And yea for Kelley Armstrong, as I lurve her too! 😀

  53. Awesome mailbox! I love that you picked up Sailor Moon. I was a hard core fan too back in the day. I had all the anime (maybe bootleg) and the actually japanese comics themselves. Plus any kind of toy, playing cards, etc that you could pick up. So I had to buy the comics when they rereleased them. It would seem like a crime if I didn’t.

  54. Love the wine!! haha. And I read the Calling last week and it’s made of Kelley awesomeness!!! I love her so much! 😀 Great haul!

  55. Great haul this week April!

  56. First, thanks for stopping by and commenting on my IMM, April! 😀 Second, your mailbox was awesome this week! I can’t wait to read The Gathering, so jealous that you got a copy! I hope you like it…although I’m sure you will since you sound like you’re a mega Kelley Armstrong fan just like me! haha Also, Game of Thrones is amazing! And those are my fav characters, too! I think everybody loves Tyrion! haha And I just love Dany and Jon….I seriously have to read the books just to get more of them I think! haha 😀

    I hope you enjoy all of your goodies from your mailbox, and I completely agree, Joffrey really is a piece of work! 😉 lol

    Happy Reading!
    Ambur 🙂

  57. Game of Thrones look cool XD Enjoy your stuff 🙂

  58. I got the Calling last week, too! The UK version. I’m very excited about it, loved the previous book! Native Americans and wild nature, exactly what I like! 🙂

  59. Enjoy all your books – Immortal Rules looks FABULOUS.

  60. i read duke of shadows a long while ago but i remember really liking it. i hope you do too. meredith duran is on my auto-buy list so anything by her is good in my opinion.
