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.
The Uses of Enchantment: The Meaning and Importance of Fairy Tales by Bruno Bettleheim- over at TwilightMoms there is a thread where we talk about Fractured Fairy Tales. I can get sucked into that thread for hours. Basically I got this book so I can do reasearch for a thread on a chat board. So yeah. I'm a nerd.
XVI by Julia Karr- I've already finished this one up. It was a really great dystopian and it also counts for the Debut Author Challenge.
M is for Magic by Neil Gaiman- This one is for the HS Book Club I help with. It's a collectio of short stories and so far is really fun!
Ravenwild by Peter Plasse- I was contated by Michael Longenecker, who does some brilliant illustrations in this book, about reviewing Ravenwild. Between the artwork, the synopsis and the tagline on the website I was convinced! I mean under the title we have: "War...Tyranny...Courage...Honor...Loyalty" and then the fabulous quote of: "Sometimes even a fool can be reasoned with if you hit him with a big enough stick." That was enough for me! Check out their website for more information on the book!
