In My Mailbox (September 12, 2010)

The weekly In My Mailbox post is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. It is fun to see what everyone else gets in their mailboxes, shopping bags, and library visits. Click on the link to The Story Siren's site to see the rules and join in the fun.
I guarantee that your TBR pile will grow when you see all the cool books everyone gets. You will discover lots of wonderful blogs and lots of books that you won't be able to live without.

This week I got:

Operation: Stiletto by R. A. Ridgell from a friend who went to the Decatur Book Festival. She thought I would like it. 

Coronets and Steel by Sherwood Smith because I am a fan of her work. I like the idea of a modern girl who "finds herself swept up in an adventure of fantastic deceptions and passionate intrigue-and a shocking realization about her own bloodline that leaves her reeling."
Evolve: Vampire Stories of the New Undead edited by Nancy Kilpatrick is another anthology. It also has stories by Kelley Armstrong and Tanya Huff which is what convinced me to buy it.

The Truth of Valor by Tanya Huff is the latest in her science fiction series about Former Marine Gunnery Sergeant Torin Kerr. I have been following along and what to know what comes next for her.

That was my variety this week. What was in your mailbox?


  1. Great books. Kelley Armstrong is a very good writer, so I can understand why you bought that book. :) Enjoy the books you got.

  2. I really need to get my hands on Coronets and Steel. Sherwood Smith's Crown Duel was always a favorite of mine. Ah, Vidanric *sigh*

  3. I am not familiar with any of these titles so I will be watching for your reviews. Have a great week.

  4. I like Tanya Huff's Blood Ties series, never heard of that book though! Great books! Happy reading!

  5. I've been wanting to check out Sherwood Smith's work, what would you recommend to start with?

  6. Nice mailbox. Happy reading and have a great week!

  7. I tried reading Sherwood Smith's Crown Duel twice, and could not get into it, so I gave up. But I keep seeing her books and they just sound so good, and something I would really enjoy. Maybe one day I'll have to give her another chance. Happy reading!
