In My Mailbox

I am participating in this weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren, where we share what books we received this week.

I went totally crazy blog hopping to enter giveaways, and I was fortunate to win a lot of e-books. I also received one paperback in my "real" mailbox for review.

I was the winner of Prize Package #3 of the 200 Followers Giveaway held by Catie Vargas at Forbidden Passions Reviews. I won the first four e-books of The Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Clare: City of Bones, City of Ashes, City of Glass, and City of Fallen Angels. Thank you, Catie!

I won a giveaway held by Jodie M. Webb of Words by Webb for Treasures From The Attic: The Extraordinary Story of Anne Frank's Family by Mirjam Pressler. Unfortunately, the publisher does not ship to Canada! Instead, Jodie has gifted me with the following e-book:

Egypt: The Uprising (The Battle for Maat, Book #1)
by Amira Aly
(Kindle format)

Thanks, Jodi!

I won an e-book of Fezariu's Epiphany by David M. Brown in a giveaway hosted by Donna Brown. She also informed me that David's other two books, Short Stories I-IV and Hawkswood, are both currently available for free at Smashwords, so I downloaded them as well. Thanks, Donna and David!

Paradox - The Angels Are Here (Book 1)
by Patti Roberts

I won this e-book in a giveaway hosted by Alaiel Kreuz at Librarian Mouse.

Insight (Book #1) and Embody (Book #2)
