In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren. The idea is to share what books you got your hands on in the last week.
I got in a lot of books this week- 8 to be exact. Most from the Library, but there is one win, one review and one from the fabulous Donna at EFG. Thank goodness Spring Break is coming up so I can read without the interuption of silly things like homework!
The Temptress by Jude Deveraux: I've said it a few times now, I'm addicted to Deveraux books, and I'm working my way through the Montgomery books right now. So far I think this one may be my favorite.
Dark Oracle by Alayna Williams: a few weeks ago I the book Rogue Oracle in from Donna and discovered it was a sequel, so I grabbed this one up from the library so I can read them in order!
Fall for Anything by Courtney Summers: this book is about a girl named Eddie who is dealing with the suicide of her father and the mystery that surrounds it. This book also counts for the YA Contemps Challenge for those of you who are participating in that.
So Shelly by Ty Roth: This book struck me as very intriguing. It follows two schoolmates as they take their mutual friend, Shelly's, ashes to a small island in Lake Erie (per her wishes). Roth uses poets like Keats, Byron and Shelly as inspiration for the modern day high school students, and I'm really interested in seeing how that plays out. This is a Debut Author Challenge Book.
The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness: This is a Dystopian I stumbled upon when a prequel short story came up for free on my Nook. That little taste left me wanting to know more!
Timeless by Alexandra Monir: This book is about a teenager who has her whole life flipped upside when she is forced to move in with her grandparents, The Windsor, across the country. She soon finds that Time moves differently for her family as she is plunged into the past to find her soul mate. This is also a Debut Author Challenge book.
Tiger's Curse by Colleen Houck: This is another Debut Author Challenge book and it follows the sotry of a girl named Kelsey as she tries to break a 300 year old Indian curse.
Up From Slavery by Booker T. Washington: I won this book from Penguin Books during a twitter contest. Up From Slavery is Washington's autobiography.
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dreadfully Ever After by Steve Hockensmith: This is a continuation of the Pride and Prejudice mashups in which we see Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth on their honeymoon, and dealing with the fact that poor Mr. Darcy has been bitten! I recieved this book from Quirk Books.
