Tynga of Tynga's Reviews is starting a new meme to spotlight the books we receive each week. She explains at her site. She also does a very nice vlog each week showing her books (and hopefully her new baby).
Another option is Mailbox Monday which was originally started by Marcia at A Girl and Her Books. She hosted it for a long time but in April 2010 she decided to make it a traveling meme. You can see all the details here. You will also find a list of the 2012 hosts.
Cindy from Cindy's Love of Books is hosting in April and Martha from Reviews by Martha's Bookshelf will be hosting in May.
I guarantee that your TBR pile will grow when you see all the wonderful books everyone gets. You will also discover lots of great blogs and lots of books that you won't be able to live without.
This is the first time I am participating in these memes. I look forward to getting to know some new blogs and to connect with some of my old blogging friends.
I added three books to my TBR mountain this week.
I received my finished, keeper copy of Crystal Gardens by Amanda Quick. I am a long time fan of this author and love her historical paranormal mysteries that are filled with quirky and entertaining characters. This one was a lot of fun to read. My review is here.
Evil Dark: An Occult Crime Unit Investigation by Justin Gustainis is the second book in the series that began with Hard Spell. I liked the combination of hard-boiled detective story with urban fantasy and look forward to seeing what the characters are up to in this case.
Summoning the Night by Jenn Bennett is the latest in an urban fantasy series that I haven't begun yet. I do have the previous book - Kindling the Moon - on my TBR mountain and hope to get a chance to read this series soon. I have read great reviews for Kindling the Moon.
That was my mailbox this week. What did you get in yours?
