In My Mailbox (4)

Welcome back for my fourth In My Mailbox.  Hosted by The Story Siren, this is a way to highlight the books I have received over the last couple of weeks for review and for fun.  Titles link to Goodreads, authors (and publishers for review titles) to their websites or author page.  Let's get started:

For Review:

How to Woo a Reluctant Lady by Sabrina Jeffries (Feb, Pocket Star/Simon and Schuster).  Many thanks to Goodreads and Simon and Schuster for this giveaway (so also a "won" book)!  This is the third book in Jeffries' Hellions of Halstead Hall series, and they have been really good so far.

The Backyard Homestead Guide to Raising Farm Animals, edited by Gail Damerow (March, Storey Publishing).  I really enjoy The Backyard Homestead, which sits with my gardening/homesteading books.  Thank you to Storey Publishing for providing this to me.  (Don't you love how it came all wrapped in paper with bees, chickens, goats and cows?)

The Changeling's Champion by Miya Kressin (October 2010, The Writer's Coffee Shop) An ebook, a tale of the Fae and searching for true love.


Hexbound by Chloe Neill.  I love many of the authors highlighted on Bitten By Books, so to win an autographed copy from a favorite author (previously reviewed here) is a definite plus!  Along with bookmarks (who doesn't need bookmarks?)  I haven't tried Neill's YA series yet.


One Of Our Thursdays Is Missing by Jasper Fforde.  If you have not picked up the Thursday Next series, get thee to the library!  The latest in another favorite series I was able to get hold of from one of my librarian colleagues (Yes, I must give it back.)

Pretty In Ink and Driven to Ink by Karen E. Olsen.  I do admit I like the topical cozy mysteries, and about a tattoo artist?  Count me in!  These are #2 and #3 in this series, so I have to go back to the first once I am done with these.


The used bookstores - they call to me.  These are from one of my faves in Northampton, Raven Books.

Magic Burns and Magic Strikes from Ilona Andrews.  I have read all of this fantasy series so far, and have loved it, so I grabbed these copies when I saw them.  Of course, now I need #1 and #4 from the series.  I can start at the beginning of a series, I swear!

The Locavore Way: Discover and Enjoy the Pleasures of Locally Grown Food by Amy Cotler.  When I saw this title sitting on the shelf I had to get it.  I am still a newbie at finding local foods, so I hope this will help guide me.

What are you enjoying right now?  Happy Reading!

  2. @SarahI had been waiting for it too! I really enjoy the way Sabrina Jeffries writes.
