In My Mailbox

This is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren.  Its a great way to show what you won/bought/borrowed each week {or so}.  I might write one each week, but most likely every couple/few weeks as, while I love to read, I have many other things that take up my time and at the moment am not winning or being given any books for review {this is not my choice... I would love to make the excuse of "needing" to read a good book so I can review it!}.

This week I'm kind of doing a reverse IMM.  I'm going to an amazing book store at the end of the month, and am trying to come up with a great list of books that I need to purchase there.  I have some Amazon giftcards saved up to purchase some book from them as well {mostly just new ones, as that's the cheapest place I can find them}.  But I need some help.  Other than my list of a few randoms {and the last three of the Iron Fey and Vampire Academy books}, I'm honestly at a loss as to what I should get!  I need suggestions, peeps!  Like I stated, I only review books I've purchased, borrowed from the library or have had loaned to me, as I haven't really been around as a blogger long enough to get publishers wanting to send me books.

So, what I'm asking is for anyone reading this to comment with a title or two of books they think I just really need to pick up {preferably ones a year or so old, since I can get those used at the amazing Powells}.  Authors I love would be the likes of Melissa De La Cruz, PC Cast, Cassandra Clare, Aprillyne Pike, Melissa Marr, Stephenie Meyer... I've also read a good deal {if not all} of these authors' books, so I'm looking for a different author, not just other works by the ones I listed.  Please help!

Oh, and the one thing I did pick up this week is something I love to listen to while reading: The Black Keys' album El Camino.  Wonderful music.

I don't know which books you have already read, but I really love Kelley Armstrong and it seems others agree. If you enjoy Adult novels then maybe Nalini Singh (great worldbuilding!) and Ilona Andrews (same!). :)

Patricia // Maybe check out my IMM, too?

I have read a few Kelly Armstrong, and I LOVE her books. I'm definitely going to check out those authors! Thanks =)
