In My Mailbox {51}

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren, where we all share what we got during the week!

Got some really fun stuff this week, guys! Some review stuff that I've really been looking forward to, some birthday presents, and yes, a couple of used books store purchases. That's it...I give. My book-buying ban goal was to not buy any books until Desires of the Dead came out and I have failed, failed, failed. When I have money in my pocket, that is what I'm gonna spend it on...I guess there are worse things, right?

For Review:
Dark Mirror by M.J. Putney
Really looking forward to this one. Part historical, part magic & fantasy, cool cover...what's not to love?
Enclave by Ann Aguire
Previously known as Razorland, this one looks pretty gritty---I'm ready to dive in!
Shine by Lauren Myracle
Read Kissing Kate by Lauren Myracle last year and loved it. Looking forward to reading another of her books!
Entwined by Heather Dixon(ATW Tours)
Been looking forward to this one since I laid eyes on the gorgeous cover. I'm half-way through..this one is a charmer!

Many thanks go out to St. Martin's Griffin, Fiewel & Friends, Abrams Books, and Around the World Tours for sending me these!

Birthday Gifts! (Thanks, Amy!! Love you!!)
The Hollow by Jessica Verday
The Haunted by Jessica Verday
I've been meaning to read this for ages! I love the old Sleepy Hollow legend so I was always curious about these books! My girl, Amy, loves these, so she got me my own copies for my bday!!

Hautings: Tales of the Supernatural, illustrated by Edward Gorey
SUPER excited about this find. I came across this one in a used book store in Monterey just yesterday. I love all things Edward Gorey, so that was the main reason I bought it. When I looked through it more carefully, I discovered it was a collection of spooky stories from awesome writers like Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Henry James, H. P, Lovecraft, and H.G. Wells! All illustrated by Gorey! How cool is that?!

Silksinger: Faeries of Dreamdark #2 by Laini Taylor
Once again, I purchased a second in a series without realizing it. Still, I've read that this one stands pretty strongly on it's own and how could I pass up such an intriguing sounding story and a pretty faery cover! So I may seek out the first book to read first---or I may just dive right into this one!

So that was my awesome book week. Coming up this week should be my review of Entangled (because I didn't get around to it last week! haha) , Human Blend, and Entwined.

Only a little over a week to get entries in for the monthly New Reads Giveaway so get those in if you haven't!

Also, a huge congrats goes out to Karina L.! She was the lucky winner of Entangled in my Dreaming of Books Giveaway!

Happy reading, all!
