In My Mailbox (Oct. 31, 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.

I discovered quite a few books this week that I could not live without. I added these to my Kindle:
I noticed that there were two more novellas in the Serengeti series and had to add them. I chose Serengeti Lightning and Serengeti Storm both by Vivi Andrews. Each is just a quick romantic-bordering-on-erotic story featuring shapeshifters.

I also got Wolf Tracks: Granite Lake Wolves, Book 4 by Vivian Andrews to find out how TJ finally finds his mate. This was a very nice romance. Although I think the female lead managed to accept the whole idea of people shifting to wolves rather quickly.
I also added the next two books by J. K. Beck to my Kindle this week. I added When Wicked Craves and When Pleasure Rules. I have the first book in the series on the Kindle already but have not yet had a chance to read it.
I couldn't neglect my physical TBR stack this week. I added these titles:
  • Ten Ways to Be Adored When Landing a Lord by Sarah MacLean because I enjoyed the first book in this series and do like a nice historical romance once in a while.
  • A Rumor of Bones by Beverly Connor is the first in a mystery series. I read about this on one of the many blogs I follow and was intrigued enough to hunt down this book.
  • Prisoners in the Palace by Michaela MacColl was another book that I learned about by reading someone's blog. This is a combination of historical fiction, mystery and romance and really appealed to me.
I am a fan of David Weber's Honor Harrington series. I thought I would try Out of the Dark even though it is in a new series. Somehow the idea of humans and vampires fighting off an alien invasion appealed to me.

I also chose the anthology Haunted by Your Touch primarily because it includes a new story by Jeaniene Frost. I haven't read anything by either of the other two authors.

That was my week. What landed in your mailbox?


  1. I am off to Goodreads to check out some of these books! Thanks for sharing....

  2. Oh shoot! Now I want the one with the new Jeaniene Frost story! I had completely forgot about it! But I'm on a book buying ban, so I guess it'll have to wait for now...
    I haven't heard of Vivi Andrews, I'll have to look those books up, they sound interesting.

  3. i really want to read the sarah maclean book and prisoners in the palace, I just won prisoners in a contest :)

  4. The David Weber book looks intriguing!! Happy Reading!!

  5. I'm so behind on the Granite Lake Wolves series. I really enjoyed the first one though. I need to get on it. I'm a fan of J.K.'s books. The 3rd one is my favorite so far in the series. I hope you enjoy them!
