In My Mailbox (16)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme sponsored by The Story Siren.  This is a great way for bloggers to network and share what books they are reviewing, borrowing, and/or buying.

It's been a while since I've done an IMM post, but I have been busy doing everything but reading and book shopping. I know, I know...what else is there? But I've had to step away to take care of business, but I am back and ready to share with you a few of my recent finds.

Purchased from B&N and Amazon: 

I am quite excited about the following novels. I've read great things about them, and I'm looking forward to tackling them during my Christmas break. 

Darwen Arkwright and the Peregrine Pact by A.J. Hartley
Snow in Summer by Jane Yolen
Don't Expect Magic by Kathy McCullough  
Lincoln: The Biography of a Writer by Fred Kaplan

ARC Swap with Sarah at YA Love Blog: 

I love the idea of swapping books with fellow bloggers. This was my first time, and I will definitely work with Sarah again.

Glow  by Amy Kathleen Ryan

Received for Review:

I've decided to step out of my comfort zone a bit and review books I would not usually read. One of the authors, Larry, is from the same city I live, so I thought I would give a local author a chance. Stay tuned to see how it turns out...

The New Phenomenon by Chris Raabe
Darwin's Children (1 and 2) by Natasha Larry

That's what is in my mailbox, what's in yours? Have you read any of the above novels or have suggestions for me?

Happy Reading!

  13. I have to say that the Darwin's Children series does certainly look intriguing. I hope you enjoy it. The covers are very beautiful. Happy reading!

    Take a look at what's in my Mailbox!

  14. I had a bookmark for Don't Expect Magic and I've been intrigued by it ever since. Sounds exactly like my kind of read. And Glow is supposed to pretty fabulous as well, so I can't understand why I've passed over the opportunity to read it... TWICE. Too many books in such little time.

    Have a great reading week!
