I guarantee that your TBR pile will grow when you see all the wonderful books everyone gets. You will discover lots of great blogs and lots of books that you won't be able to live without.
This was another big week for me. I don't think that I will ever be able to catch up on my TBR stack. But I just couldn't resist all these lovely books.
I received these books for review:
I got Minding Ben by Victoria Brown through Shelf Awareness. This will really be a genre-stretcher for me. I don't often read adult contemporary fiction. This one about a nanny in New York City is way outside my boundaries and experiences.
Survivor by Sean Slater was sent to me because I am taking part in the 2011 Mystery and Suspense Challenge at Book Chick City. This one doesn't even have a cover available online yet. My ARC does have a sort of creepy mask on the cover.
I received Lucifer's Tears by James Thompson from Shelf Awareness too. This is a murder mystery that takes place in Finland.
The Unfinished Song: Initiate by Tara Maya was sent to me by the author for review. This was an ebook and was a nice quick read. I will be looking for the sequels for this fantasy series.
I added these eBooks to my Kindle this week:
Big Girls Don't Die by Crystal Jordan and Catch of a Lifetime by Judi Fennell were both free offerings this week. Both are in the paranormal genre.
Linked by Hope Welsh is a shifter story and was only $.99. Origins by Randolph Lalonde was another free book. This one is science fiction.
Eternity Embraced by Larissa Ione is a short story in her Demonica series. Total Eclipse of the Heart by Crystal Jordan is the first in the series that included the free book listed above. I had to have the first in the series before I would feel comfortable reading the second.
Last, I purchased a couple of paperback books.
I have been seeing good reviews for A Brush of Darkness by Allison Pang and thought I would give it a try.
I had to have Archangel's Consort by Nalini Singh. I really liked the first two books in the series. This one was also excellent. You can see my review here.
That is my mailbox this week. What did you get in yours?
