In My Mailbox (13)

Lucky number 13!

Welcome to my thirteenth 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.

From BEA:

No, I didn't actually go, but my good friend Sara did! Not only did she pick up one just for me, but she had a stack at her party last week in which I was able to find a couple more titles.

Reclaiming Our Food: How the Grassroots Food Movement Is Changing the Way We Eat by Tanya Denckla Cobb (Storey, Oct). This one was actually a title I just received through NetGalley, so I am excited to have it in print. I pointed Sara in the direction of where Storey Publishing was setting up their booth. :)

Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor (Little, Brown, Sept). Yes, this was a cover grab. I am intrigued about the blurb on the back, hand prints and art students and teeth? (Oh my!)

Pure by Julianna Baggott (Grand Central, Feb 2012). Is it the next Hunger Games? Maybe I am in the mood for another post-apocalyptic story...

From the Library:

Oh boy. It was another one of those visits.

Uncertain Allies by Mark Del Franco. Conner Grey once again investigates murder - and pulls up more secrets from the Fey Guild. (This is fifth in the series.)

Unseen by Rachel Caine. If you miss Caine's Weather Warden books, now that the series is ended, follow along with the former-Djinn Cassiel as she gets used to living life on Earth. (This is third in the series.)

Seaworthy: A Swordboat Captain Returns to Sea by Linda Greenlaw. I loved her first book, The Hungry Ocean, and am hoping this one rings the same.

The Profitable Hobby Farm: How To Build a Sustainable Local Foods Business by Sarah Beth Aubrey. I am not going into business, but am interested in seeing how those who want to approach the business side can.

The Medicine Garden by Rachel Corby. I have many books on herbal remedies on my bookshelves. I am thinking of adding some more medicinal plants to my garden and was happy to come across this on the new books shelves.

Garden Anywhere by Alys Fowler. My friend recommended this book. While I am not constrained by containers anymore, I still am looking to manage small-space gardens at my home.

And my next research project (More on this tomorrow!)

Choosing & Raising Chickens by Jeremy Hobson and Celia Lewis.

Happy Reading!
