In My Mailbox was started by The Story Siren as a way to showcase all the books she receieved on a weekly basis. It has since spread across the book blogging community, and I'm so excited about what I've recently received that I want to share with all of you.
One of my favorite things at the end of the day is to open my mailbox and find I have wonderful things waiting for me. Not bills, not the slew of credit card applications and advertisements for new garage doors – FUN things. Over the last week, I have come home to a full mailbox nearly every day. It’s been like Christmas with all the books I’ve received. Here is my lovely recent haul.
Cinder and Ella by Melissa Lemon
(from Lisa at A Casual Reader’s Blog)
Pale Demon by Kim Harrison
(from Lisa at Alive on the Shelves)
The Human Race by OC Heaton
(from OC Heaton at A Rush of Green)
I went a little crazy around the holidays with purchases. Between Amazon’s usual 4-for-3 sale and the clearance items, I did a bit of damage.
Heartless by Gail Carriger
The Devil You Know by Mike Carey (Book 1 of the Felix Castor series)
The Native Star by MK Hobson
To Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis
Shades of Gray by Jasper Fforde
Lockdown: Escape from Furnance by Alexander Gordon Smith
How gorgeously creepy is that cover for Lockdown? I had to get that one even though I’d never even heard of it before.
Then I found out Barnes & Noble were having their summer sale, so I went even more crazy. The box these came in nearly didn’t fit in the package mailbox!
Spike: Shadow Puppets by Brian Lynch and Franco Urru
The Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood
Vicious Circle by Mike Carey (another Felix Castor book, I believe)
The Magicians by Lev Grossman
Daemon by Daniel Suarez
The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly
20th Century Ghosts by Joe Hill
Darkborn by Alison Sinclair (Darkborn Trilogy #1)
Captain Freedom: A Superhero’s Quest for Trust, Justice and the Celebrity He So Richly Deserves by G. Xavier Robillard
I think I have to lay off the book buying for a while. By the time Fernando returned home from his overseas trip, our living room looked like I’d turned it into a library. Oops…
