In My Mailbox (July 24, 2011)

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 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 good week for my mailbox. Here is what I added to my TBR mountain.
I recently read Deadly Sins by Kylie Brant (My review will be posted on Aug. 3) and became intrigued with her Mindhunters series. I decided to add them to my endless TBR mountain. These three arrived this week.

 As it happens these are books 1, 2, and 5 in the series. I'm still waiting for 3 and 4 before I settle into a Mindhunters orgy.

I also added some books to my Kindle this week.
Stone Cold Seduction by Jess Macallen is so new that it doesn't have a final cover yet. I got this start of a trilogy from Entangled Publishing via NetGalley. I will be a stop on the blog tour for this one in September. It is urban fantasy.

I also got a new anthology Under Her Skin which includes stories by some of my favorite urban fantasy authors - Jeaniene Frost, Ilona Andrews and Meljean Brook. 

Then yesterday I found out that I could get one of the books in the Father Koesler mystery series for my Kindle. I remember reading these "religiously" some years ago and want to see if I still enjoy them now. So I added The Gathering to my mountain. This one was free when I added it but doesn't seem to be free today. 

That was my haul for the week. What did you get in your mailbox?


  1. My TBR pile has literally turned into a mountain now what with the compilations I bought!!

    Happy Reading!

    Here's my IMM

  2. We all complain about the mountain and love it :)

  3. Going to look up Under Her Skin.

    Another great mailbox Kathy. Do you ever not have a bad Mailbox week?? Nope you don't :)

  4. Thanks for visiting my blog. I don't usually do zombies, but my students are so into them that I always try to find interesting zombie stories for them. My favorite is Zombies vs. Unicorns. One of the most unique YA novels I've ever read.

    Great reads this week. The Brant novels look really interesting - enjoy them.

    Happy Reading!

  5. I completely understand how you feel about the mountain of books. I actually closed submissions for review for a bit on my blog just so I can catch up a little.

    Love the cover on the Gathering.

  6. Nice picks! I just wanted to stop by and say thank you for visiting my blog.
    I am a new follower and I'm looking forward to reading future posts!


  7. I forgot to mention that I am also from southeast MN! Near Rochester. I'm so happy I am not the olny Minnesotan.

  8. You've got some great books this week! I hope you like them all! Thanks for stopping by my blog :) Happy reading!

  10. I have Kylie Brant's books on my TBR and I want to read them soon.
    Here's what's in my mailbox this week.

  11. You have a nice list of books in your mailbox this week. Under Her Skin looks like a good book.
    Happy Reading,
