In My Mailbox (Feb. 28, 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 added a bunch again this week. I blame it partly on the book fair being hosted in my HS Media Center. I swear they were all calling my name but I managed to get away with "only" these:

Finally by Wendy Mass -- I didn't grab this my first time through but I read an excellent review on The O.W.L's Tween Tuesday post and got it the next day. It will fit in for the In the Middle Reading Challenge that Jill is running at The O.W.L. too.

Dead Is So Last Year and Dead Is a State of Mind by Marlene Perez -- I have
heard good things about these too.

The Tragedy of a Girl Named Hamlet by Erin Dionne -- I confess I bought this because of the title, blurb and cover. I hope that contents live up to them.

The Cupcake Queen by Heather Hepler isn't my usual style but it also sounded good.

The Season by Sarah MacLean is a book that I read about on someone's blog. When I saw it and read the blurb I decided to add it to the stack too.

Ruined by Paula Morris also got good buzz on a blog I was reading. When I saw it, I decided to give it a try.

The Princess Plot by Kirsten Boie and Killer Pizza by Greg Taylor just looked good. I don't know much about either.

After reading last Sunday's IMM posts for numerous bloggers, I added these title to my Kindle.

Violent Eyes by Debbie Viguie was shown on Rebecca's Book Blog and looked really appealing.

Wolf's Gambit and Wolf's Trap are both by W. D. Gagliani. I saw Wolf's Trap on the Dangerous Pleasures blog and checked it out. I love werewolves! When I saw there was another also available for my Kindle, I bought it too.

Molly Fyde and the Land of Light and Molly Fyde and the Parsona Rescue were mentioned by Katie at They sounded so good I had to get them too.

A few of my favorite authors also came out with new books this week too. So I bought:

Black Magic Sanction by Kim Harrison -- I am following the series and have to know what is next in store for Rachel Morgan. I also am attending a book signing on Monday night and will get to meet Kim Harrison. I am going with a friend and hope we can both manage to keep a little dignity and not be too "squeeing fan girl" (but I'm not making any guarantees).

Fantasy in Death by J. D. Robb is the latest in the Eve Dallas series - I really like those books. This one might just be a "drop everything and read now" book. Big Jack is also a Eve Dallas story by J. D. Robb. It has been part of a collection but now is a book by itself.

Nauti Deceptions by Lori Leigh is next in the nauti series. I have been reading this series. I think I have read them all. This is about a character who has been mentioned in a number of the other books but only as a peripheral character. She finally takes center stage and gets a romance of her own.

That was it for me this week. What showed up in your mailbox (or followed you home from the book store)?

  6. Book fairs are very dangerous ;) That's quite a list of books you got this week. Have you read Erin Dionne's other book - Models Don't Eat Chocolate Cookies? It is a very good mg book, based on that Total Tragedy should be a good read as well. Have a great reading week!
