O.M.G.: What are you waiting for? Go out and buy this book now! Superb: It's wonderful, but you can wait for a coupon. Give it a try: It's good, but I would wait for paperback. Meh: It will be in the library eventually. Naahhhhhhhhh!!!: Do I really need to explain?
In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. Anyone can participate in IMM, and you are not limited to only sharing books that arrive via your mailbox. You can also share books that you've bought or books that you've gotten at the library. I'm not going to do In My Mailbox every week, but I had another good week. I even did a video. I think the voice track is still off. Once I get some better equipment, my video quality will go up. So here is what I got in my mailbox....
Bought: Harry Potter hardcover boxed set by J.K. Rowling --- I've been wanting this set for a long time. It was on sale at Barnes and Noble.com and I had a coupon. It was just in the cards for me this week.
For review from Algonquin books: Wicked Bugs by Amy Stewart --- I was browsing through the Algonquin catalog and this one grabbed me. It seemed like a fun way to learn about bugs. Something for Nothing by David Anthony -- A suburban dad resorts to crime to preserve his family. Silver Sparrow by Tayari Jones --- Young girls from two families learn their father is a bigamist.
For review from Other Press:
Enough About Love by Herve Le Tellier --- It's not mentioned in the video because I forgot to include it. It's a French romance novel.
Note: I'm looking for takers for my What's Up Tweeps?! feature. Click the tab at the top of the page for details. Happy reading!!
I've been stuck in a rut and I decided I needed a creative outlet. This is it! I've been a self-professed bookaholic since age five, and one day I'm going to get my dream job in book publishing! Follow me on Twitter at bookangel224!!
I love, love to read. I accept literary fiction, chick lit, memoirs, mysteries, historical fiction and contemporary YA books for review. If you think your book is for me, I will make an exception for other genres. At this time, I am accepting a limited amount of e-books. If I can't get into your book after 60-70 pages, I will not review it. Books are read in the order they are received. Reviews will be posted within 6-8 weeks upon receiving the book. Reviews of books not yet published will be posted closer to the publication date. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Opportunities for guest posts, interviews and giveaways can also be arranged.
