In My Mailbox (19)

Welcome to 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. Titles link to Goodreads.

I skipped last week because of being on vacation and oh, did my books stack up for this post! Let's get started:

For Review:


His Mistress By Christmas by Victoria Alexander. Kensington Books put out a call for reviewers on their Facebook page, and I was happy to get this historical romance from them! It came with a signed card from the author also.


Won:


Dead Iron by Devon Monk. I really love this author and was thrilled to have received this from Book Faery! Many thanks to Tori and ROC/Penguin for providing this title.

Borrowed:


Robopocalypse by Daniel H. Wilson. An ARC my girlfriend was able to pass on to me. I am finding I am liking these apocalyptic tales, whether involving zombies, robots, or maybe eventually robot zombies?

Library:


The Blue Place by Nicola Griffith.
If I Stay by Gayle Forman.

These were sitting on my library's "Free" cart out front. Normally I tend to walk by as it gets picked over pretty regularly, however I decided to browse through it on a day that had a lot of books. Weeding must have happened! 

Bought:

Oh yes, I found more used bookstores. Raven Books has opened up in Greenfield (and is really nice!) and we made it up to Brattleboro VT to take a look around. 


You Grow Girl by Gayla Trail. I have always borrowed this from the library and was so excited to see it on the shelf.



I think I have said enough about my adoration for Pierce's books.

A Small Sacrifice by Ellen Hart.
Homicide in Hardcover by Kate Carlisle.
Oolong Dead by Laura Childs.

I cannot resist adding to my mystery collection.

Happy Reading!
