In my mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren in which you share the books you added to your collection in the past week.
Hi friends! I made the mistake of letting myself go into the MG section of the library this week, but was able to cut myself off after only three books. Here’s the stack (clicky for GoodReads):
The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf – Moly Harper: I finished this first book in this series, How to Flirt With a Naked Werewolf, about a week or so ago and had so much fun, I ran out to get the second.
I’ve Got Your Number – Sophie Kinsella: I haven’t read any Sophie Kinsella before, but this one sounds cute and has gotten good reviews from bloggers I heart like Angie (Angieville) and Holly (Book Harbinger). Since I’ve recently jumped on the chick-lit train, I decided to check it out!
Girl in Blue – Ann Rinaldi: On Twitter, Tara (Hobbitsies) reminded me of the existence of Ann Rinaldi. She was one of my favorite authors in middle school when I was on this massive historical fiction kick, and somehow I forgot about her! I realized my library has a sizable stack of her books, including Girl in Blue, which involves a girl dressing as a boy to fight in the civil war, and we all know how I feel about that sort of thing!
Castle in the Air – Diana Wynne Jones: The first companion book to Howl’s Moving Castle, I had to have it immediately after finishing the former and loving it so much.
This Dark Endeavor – Kenneth Oppel: I’ve wanted to read this one since it came out, and when my eyes happened to glance over it on the shelf, I couldn’t stop myself from grabbing it (it was at the point I made myself exit the stacks)…
Black Heart – Holly Black: I listened to White Cat not too long ago, and dug it so much I picked up Red Glove before I was through. I’ll be starting that one today! I put myself on the wait list for Black Heart, and was second…guess whoever was in front of me failed to meet the ‘you have three days to check this book out’ requirement, and I got Black Heart on Friday!
ARC For Review:
Blackwood – Gwenda Bond: A contemp that brings in the mystery of the Lost Colony of Roanoke—sounds potentially awesome to me! Thanks to Strange Chemistry and NetGalley.
Thieftaker – D.B. Jackson: Historical fantasy set during the revolutionary war? Yes please! Thanks to Tor Books and NetGalley, I am SO excited for this one.
Shadowfell – Juliet Marillier: It haven been literally weeks since I’d requested this one, I’d pretty much given up hope and happily resigned myself to reading this one when it comes out. But no, Random House came through for me, and I thank them and Edelweiss very much for this ARC!
