In My Mailbox (August 1, 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 another one of those weeks for me. You know, buy two books, read one.

Here are the print books I have already read and reviewed.
Eternal Kiss of Darkness by Jeaniene Frost - This was such a good book. I couldn't put it down until the last page was read.

Waking the Witch by Kelley Armstrong was another strong entry in the Women of the Otherworld series. Savannah is a character that we have watched grow up. Now she is doing her first solo investigation and learning that bad things happen even with the best of intentions.

Infamous by Suzanne Brockmann was supposed to be my break from the paranoramal and back into romantic suspense. It was romantic suspense but one of the main characters was a ghost. 

I got a couple more print books too.

Wicked  Becomes You by Meredith Duran was in my mailbox yesterday from Monica from Laurel, MD. I must have won it in a contest but I don't remember doing so. I already have the Kindle version that I bought in May.

Large Print: An Unshelved Collection by Bill Barnes and Gene Ambaum is the most recent collection of the internet comic Unshelved. It is great library humor. Once a week they do a book review in graphic format. 

I also added some books to my Kindle this week. These are the ones I paid for.
Water Bound by Christine Feehan is the newest entry in the Sea Haven series. I was wondering if the series had ended because all of the sisters had their romances. I am eager to get to this one.

The next two have received a lot of attention on the blogs I follow and so I decided to jump on the bandwagon and give them a try. I downloaded and read the samples for my Kindle before I took the plunge and bought:
  • The Passage by Justin Cronin
  • Private by James Patterson

These were free this week for my Kindle (and I can never pass up a bargain).

  • The Goddess of Fried Okra by Jean Brashear
  • Bright of the Sky by Kay Kenyon
  • The Malacca Conspiracy by Don Brown

  • Beyond the Reflection's Edge by Bryan Davis
  • Eternity's Edge by Bryan Davis
  • Mixed Bags by Melody Carlson
I really don't know anything about any of the free ones. But the blurbs made them sound like a book I might like to read someday. Assuming "someday" ever comes.

That was my mailbox this week. What did you get in yours?

  7. Wow! Great week! I won a preorder of Eternal Kiss but it hasn't gotten here yet. I CAN'T wait to read it! Hopefully it gets here tomorrow which means I need to read like a maniac to finish the book I'm reading! Have a great week of reading!
