In My Mailbox 7

In My Mailbox is a meme started by The Story Siren, where bloggers post any new books they bought, received, borrowed, etc.
Despite my valiant attempts to stay away from acquiring new books after 1) not having had more than an hour's worth of time to read over the whole week and 2) having signed up for NetGalley and loaded up on books that way, I visited my sister-in-law and she piled me up with some books as well! So I've got a nice large haul this week, but I'm still working on last week's and will probably not get to this week's for at least a month!

But anyway, here are the books I got now:

Two Nora Roberts books - one I've been wanting to read for a while as it's the second two books of a quartet, but I could never find it! Waiting for Nick and Considering Kate.
And Winner Takes All,  including Rules of the Game and The Name of the Game.
I might have read this one before, but I'll find out when I start reading it!
Also a Jude Deveraux book: Return to Summerhouse.

Also from my sis-in-law:
Cry Wolf,  by Tami Hoag
Fatal Tide,  by Iris Johansen
Shall We Tell the President,  by Jeffrey Archer

And this one I won directly from the author and got it autographed with a personal note!
A Knot In the Grain, by Robin McKinley

And then a whole bunch from NetGalley:

Haint Misbehavin by Maureen Hardegree
The Mermaid's Mirror, by L. K. Madigan
The Crepe Makers' Bond, by Julia Crabtree
The Last Full Measure, by Ann Rinaldi
Always a Witch, by Carolyn McCullough
The Lipstick Laws, by Amy Holder
Trickster's Girl,  by Hilari Bell
Alchemy and Meggy Swann,  by Karen Cushman
The Year Money Grew On Trees, by Aaron Hawkins

Pretty cool load! Thanks to Houghton Mifflin, Milkweed Editions, Bell Bridge Books, and NetGalley for the free digital galleys! I'm getting used to reading books on my iPod now - not sure if I like it, but a post about that will likely follow at some point.

Happy reading, everyone!


  1. I am a huge Nora Roberts fan! She was who got me into romance to begin with...then I went more paranormal so I havent read anything from her in a bit..Great post!

    My IMM is here:

  2. Well, Nikki, I followed basically the same path! Now I intersperse the paranormal with the normal, though I love a bit of love in everything!
