In My Mailbox

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren to spotlight what books we've received for the week.

I went to the Mid-WInter ALA in Dallas TX last week! I got a chance to meet up with my blogger friends and of course find some great books. Here are just a couple....


Timepiece by Myra McEntire - it took me all weekend to snag this one. They weren't handing out many copies. My husband was the one who was able to grab me one of the last three copies on Sunday morning. Can I just say how much I love him??? To infinity and beyond! I'm reading it now and - this is from a jaded series reader - it is AWESOME!

Purple Daze by Sherry Shahan - That cover is just incredible.

Loss: A Riders of the Apocalypse novel by Jackie Morse Kessler - I really enjoy this series. This one is about Pestilence and bullying.

Bewitching by Alex Flinn - I have been meaning to read one of Flinn's books for a while now and I just never seem to get to it so here's my chance.

I'll also be attending Author's After Dark in NOLA in August. In preparation I'm trying to read some of the books by authors that are new to me. 

Another bonus is that these books also help me with my Authors After Dark Reading Challenge hosted by Midynte Reader. You don't need to be attending the event to join in so go check it out.


Hunted by the Others by Jess Haines (thank you Jess)

Wanted: Undead or Alive by Kerrelyn Sparks (thank you Avon books)

Dreaming of the Wolf by Terry Spear (thank you Source Books)

And for review:

Demon's Bride: Book #2 from the Hellraisers series by Zoe Archer (thank you Zoe)

What did you get this week?
