In My Mailbox (10)

Welcome to my ninth tenth (sorry, brain lapse!) post of In My Mailbox! Hosted by The Story Siren, it is a way to showcase books received for review or won, picked up at the library, or purchased in the last week (or two). Titles link to Goodreads.

Won:




The Devil In Disguise by Stephanie Sloane. Many thanks to LibraryThing Early Reviewers for dropping this title in my lap. 



Cozy Chicks Swag. The Cozy Chicks are a group of cozy mystery authors that blog. I have really enjoyed following this blog for the last couple of months and thank them for the opportunity for this contest! I got this great little bag and a whole bunch of bookmarks and other treats.

Borrowed:




This Side of the Grave by Jeaniene Frost. I have been reading Cat's stories since the beginning. She and Bones are a fun duo.

Late Eclipses by Seanan McGuire. Amazing! Once I started I couldn't put it down. Toby grows through each story.

Buffalo West Wing by Julie Hyzy. Cozy mystery + food = a usually irresistable book for me. This is the fourth in the White House Chef Mystery series and Ollie gets to face a new First Family.

Missed Her by Ivan E. Coyote. I was drawn by the cover and idea of fiction-from-life-experiences this book claims to be. I might review it for The Lesbrary?

Stonewall Kitchen Breakfast by Jonathan King, Jim Stott & Kathy Gunst. I have been wanting to branch out in breakfast and brunch edibles. Stonewall Kitchen has a good line of treats.

Taylor's Guide to Bulbs. The gardening continues, and bulbs are one thing I do not have planted in my garden. Yet.

Got Shade? A "Take It Easy" Approach for Today's Gardener by Carolyn Harstad. My son found a picture of our house on Google Maps, which has to be a few years old. The porch was redone by our landlord about three years ago, and you can see there used to be bushes and some type of plantings in front of it. I thought is seemed a good spot for a shade garden - and the hostas breaking through the grass seem to agree!

Purchased:

Feed and Deadline by Mira Grant (aka Seanan McGuire of the title above). I LOVED the first of the Newsflesh series, and with Deadline being released in early June, I went ahead and bought the first and pre-ordered the second for my Nook. I am bound to pick these up in print also.

Happy Reading!

    Sometimes swag is more fun to receive in the mail than books! That little bag is so cute. =)
