In My Mailbox (March 21, 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 was a great week for me. I got a bunch of books this week from a variety of places. First, from Amazon, I got these releases by YA Debut Authors.

I have been looking forward to reading The Body Finder by Kim Derting since I first started seeing reviews months ago.

Princess for Hire by Lindsey Leavitt sounds really cute and I love the pink cover.

Voices of Dragons by Carrie Vaughn is a YA debut by an author I already read and enjoy.

I also got some books from the Science Fiction Book Club this month. They were running a special and I actually saved money by buying them there. Amazon would have been more even with free shipping.

Hastur Lord by Marion Zimmer Bradley and Deborah J. Ross is a new entry in a series that I used to love. I am eager to see if I fall back in love with Darkover when I read this one.

Angelology by Danielle Trussoni is an iffy pick for me. I have read great reviews of this book on the blogsphere but I am not a big fan of paranormals with angels. I have read a few that just didn't satisfy. I don't know if it was the theme or the authors that failed to connect.

I also added a couple of books to my Kindle.

Male Call by Denise A. Agnew had a hot cover and summary and was free.

Wolf Flight by Vivian Arend was the second in a series about werewolves. This was a good romance in a genre I really enjoy.

I also received a book I won in the Early Reviewers program at LibraryThing.
Spooky Little Girl by Laurie Notaro sounded interesting. This is described as light fiction/chick lit which is a little outside of my preferred genre. But I like to stretch my tastes a little every once in a while.


  1. Wow, great books! I've been wanting to read The Body Finder and Princess For Hire. I hope you enjoy them all!
