In My Mailbox is a meme started by The Story Siren, where bloggers post any new books they bought, received, borrowed, etc.
Once again, I succumbed and got a whole lot of books - although I've been stuffing in reading time wherever I can over the week, so it's not like it's totally pointless to get these books! The thing is, I feel an obligation to read and review books from NetGalley as soon as possible, so I have to keep renewing the library books (which I read on Shabbos [Saturday, the Jewish Sabbath] when I can't use my iPod) sitting on my shelf for weeks!
The Long Road Home, by Mary Alice Monroe
Against the Wind, by Kat Martin
Raider's Heart, by Marcia Gruver
In Office Hours, by Lucy Kellaway
What Can't Wait, by Ashley Hope Perez
Savannah Grey, by Cliff McNish
The Betrayal of Maggie Blair, by Elizabeth Laird
The Kiss Test, by Shannon McKelden
Fiona: Stolen Child, by Gemma Whelan
Drinking Closer to Home, by Jessica Anya Blau
Unearthly, by Cynthia Hand
Delirium, by Lauren Oliver
From the library:
Ender's Game, by Orson Scott Card
The Ladies' Paradise, by Emil Zola
From my school's book sale (from which I hoped to get some good scholarly books but only found a chick lit novel!):
Cause Celeb, by Helen Fielding
So I've got a lot of good books! I started In Office Hours, and I'm really liking it. It's about two women, switching between each one's point of view, who work in the same office and who both have office romances.
I'm so looking forward to Unearthly and Delirium! I've been reading so many good things about those two, and they seem right up my alley. Besides, who can resist such covers?
Ender's Game and The Ladies' Paradise are both old books and both were recommended to me by people in school, Ender's Game for its great science fiction and The Ladies' Paradise for its satirical imagery, so I'm looking forward to those as well.
Thanks to NetGalley, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, HarperCollins, Carina Press, Gemma Media, Harlequin, Lerner Publishing Group, Hachette Book Group, and Barbour Publishing Inc. for providing free galley downloads for review!
