In My Mailbox #46

Hey, everyone!
Apologies for being such a bad, bad blogger lately - it's just that I've had a very busy week & weekend and barely got any time to read or be online. :(
I've also had a bit of a disappointing week book-wise as only one book arrived - The Season by Sarah MacLean, finally in paperback, which I pre-ordered ages ago and it showed up on Friday.
Seventeen year old Lady Alexandra is strong-willed and sharp-tongued -- in a house full of older brothers and their friends, she had to learn to hold her own. Not the best makings for an aristocratic lady in Regency London. Yet her mother still dreams of marrying Alex off to someone safe, respectable, and wealthy. But between ball gown fittings, dances, and dinner parties, Alex, along with her two best friends, Ella and Vivi, manages to get herself into what may be her biggest scrape yet.
When the Earl of Blackmoor is mysteriously killed, Alex decides to help his son, the brooding and devilishly handsome Gavin, uncover the truth. But will Alex's heart be stolen in the process? In an adventure brimming with espionage, murder, and other clandestine affairs, who could possibly have time to worry about finding a husband? Romance abounds as this year's season begins!
I've heard fantastic things about this one and I'm really excited to read it! :D

Hope you've all been well! Enjoy the rest of the weekend! :)

ps: Don't forget to enter my giveaway for a copy of THE SKY IS EVERYWHERE along with some swag - open to UK only, ends tonight at midnight UK time with the winner (hopefully) announced tomorrow, along with the DELLA SAYS: OMG winner (whoa, that's long overdue, eek).
