In my mailbox (19)



It’s Sunday again and I am joining another week of In My Mailbox, hosted by Kristi over at The Story SirenIn My Mailbox is a weekly meme that lets everyone see what books you have received or bought that week.


I was lucky enough to be a winner in a giveaway from
Penguin Books (South Africa) and HEAT magazine.  I won this zombie book called DEADLANDS by Lily Herne. (and you know I love zombie books!!)  I think this is the first zombie book that I have heard of that is set in Cape Town – I am sooooo excited to read it!


I am one of the people that absolutely LOVED the Twilight Saga.  I will always be grateful to Stephanie Meyer for giving me back my reading mojo!  I read all four books in four days.  I also LOVE parodies!  I have seen a lot of spoof movies but I have to admit that I have never read one.  So I was very excited when my sister-in-law bought this book.  She loved it and have lent it to me to read – can’t wait.  It is called New Moan: The First Book in The Twishite Saga: A Parodyby Stephfordy Mayo (lol) .

What did you get in your mailbox?


  1. Deadlands sounds really cool! And I love the sound of New Moan, as I love parodies! Enjoy!

  2. First time I hear about Deadlands. It sounds good!
    Happy reading! :D

  3. Deadlands is the first zombie novel set in Cape Town (or at least it was marketed as such!). In many ways it was too YA-ish for my tastes, but it was some really awesome ideas nevertheless. Hope you enjoy it!


Thank you for saying hello.
