In My Mailbox (Dec. 4, 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.

I got six books this week. Half of them were for review and the other half were new books by favorite authors. Here is what I got for review:
Spin by Catherine McKenzie was one of my Amazon Vine picks. This is little outside my genre but I was interested in this story of a reporter who follows a star into rehab to get a story and discovers that she might be in rehab for a reason. This book will be released on Feb. 7.

Within the Flames by Marjorie M. Liu is the latest in the Dirk & Steele urban fantasy series. I have never read a Dirk & Steele (even though I currently have 3 copies of the first book around here somewhere) but I like urban fantasy and thought this sounded good. The book was published on Nov. 29 and is next on my reading list.

Touchstone by Melanie Rawn was another Amazon Vine pick. This is the first book in a new high fantasy series and will be published on Feb. 28.

These are by authors on my "must read" list.
Future Perfect by Suzanne Brockmann is a reprint of one of her contemporary romance novels. It was originally published in 1993 in the Kismet line. I don't think I have read it and I know I don't currently own a copy. Even if I have read it before, I still enjoying spending time with Brockmann's books.

Fate's Edge by Ilona Andrews is their most recent novel in the Edge series. I have really enjoyed the previous books and look forward to spending some time with this one too.

Demon Bait is by Moira Rogers and is sitting waiting for me on my Kindle. I love the "warning" that Samhain adds to each book description. Here is this one:
Warning: Contains a virtual world where humans flee to escape the demon-infested earth, a dangerously seductive half demon with sex magic to burn and a network-hacking summoner brave enough to make herself vulnerable to him.
Those will keep me busy for a while. What did you get in your mailbox this week?


  1. This sounds like a really good haul so happy reading! Spin looks like it will be really good.

  3. The warnings from Samhain sometimes make me more interested in reading the book than the actual blurb :-)

    Paranormal Haven

  4. Nice mailbox! Don't you just love Amazon Vine? So many great books available! Enjoy!

  5. I keep meaning to start one of Ilona Andrews' series. Marjorie Liu's book looks good. Enjoy!

    My IMM

  6. I really need to reat the edge series, I don't know why it's not the case yet.

  7. I've also really been enjoying the Andrews' Edge series and even preordered Fate's Edge, which I rarely do. So I'm really looking forward to getting that one.
