Before I start this rant I want to say a huge thank you to author Rachel Vincent for sending me a copy of her newest book 'Rogue' to review. I am still waiting to here from as to when I can expect my order of the book so I was jumping for joy yesterday when I found 'Rogue' in my post box all nice, shiny and signed by Rachel. No I won't go into the woods ;)

However here starts the rant! Yet again I am being tortured by!

This week I recieved 2 emails from telling me they can't get hold of a book! City of Shadows by Celia Rees is actually an older book so maybe it just isn't being printed anymore? Although 'Frostbite' by Richelle Mead which was released a few days ago is not avaliable and they have no idea when it could arrive! I pre-ordered this months ago!!!

It is just so sad! I never used to have this much trouble but it seems that us Europeans are not worthy enough to get books when they are released!

Rant over... for now...

Hi Amber,

Sometimes when I can't get things in the US I order them from Amazon UK. Of course shipping is much higher that way. I don't know if that's an option for you. That's got to be so frustrating, I feel your pain :)

Hey there!

Hope you are well!

I would order from but they seem to have the same waiting times as

Also it costs me alot more because the pound isn't really Euro friendly ;)

Hmmm... I recently found a copy of City of Shadows on the sale shelf at a Half Price Books, so I got it for $1! I've put it in the Teen VBB on BookObssessed... so it's sort of available, if you're in the box. :/

Have you received Succubus in the City yet? Because I bought that one at Borders last weekend (I saw it on your pre-order list, so wasn't sure if you'd actually received it or not yet.)

But then, I'm in the US, so I don't honestly know how different it is for us to get a hold of things than for you, sounds like very. :( I'm sorry!

That happens very often when I pre-ordered books in, Amber. They just drive me crazy with their excuses... What is the purpose of pre-ordering if you have to wait several months after the release, right?! Now, I buy the books I really want at The Book Depository. Never had a problem with them.:)

@ shaunesay - I am really lucky to have such great bookobsessed friends! Terra has said she will send me 'City of Shadows' so I have cancelled my order.

I just finished 'Succubus in the City' about 30 mins ago. I am just cooking and checking emails and the review will go up ;)

@ Oriana - I have been wondering where else I can order from. I have ordered from but they are just as slow. I will look at the Book Depository later today. If I can use them will be loosing a customer.

Normally, the books I buy at The Book Depository arrived in 3-5 days (sometimes 2!), Amber. Frankly, I'm quite happy with them.:)

Thank you Oriana! I have just ordered Frostbite and Rogue from Book Depository!
