In My Mailbox (12)

January 29, 2012

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren. It’s awesome. Every week, we all get a chance to tell everyone what new books we’ve gotten so that we can tell you guys and we can all drool and squee together! Huzzah for squees!

Good stuff this week, my loves. Without further ado…

FROM NETGALLEY

I Am (Not) The Walrus, by Ed Briant (July 8, 2012 from Flux Books). I LOVE books about bands. Also, I love the Beatles. I AM (NOT) THE WALRUS is about BOTH, where the lead singer of a Beatles cover band goes on a search for his mojo so that he can sing about love from REAL LIFE. Sounds cute and music-geeky. Woot!

Hollyweird, by Terri Clark (May 8, 2012 from Flux Books). In which a HOT, young Hollywood star is also the son of Satan, and a young girl wins a date with him. Things become complicated, though, by an IRL angel, and thus a love triangle of good and evil is born! This one sounds fun! I like that it’s not a heavy take on angels. Or devils for that matter.

Ferocity Summer, by Alissa Grosso (May 8, 2012 from Flux Books). So, I’m a Jersey homer, guys. I always get a little extra geeky when I read books that take place here. Usually, they’re cute contemporaries or some other funny, lighter story. But FEROCITY SUMMER brings the serious: The main character, Scilla, is on trial for her role in a deadly speedboat accident, and her bff is falling into a downward spiral of drug abuse, using this new drug called Ferocity. There’s an FBI agent, too, looking to make THE big bust. I’m really looking forward to this one.

BOUGHT

Everneath: Everneath #1, by Brodi Ashton (January 24, 2012 from Balzer + Bray). Been waiting on this one, friends. I’m a sucker for myths of ANY culture, and I’m just as big a sucker for retellings of those myths. EVERNEATH is a reimagining of the Persephone story and sounds AWESOME. Like a paranormal mythological mash-up. Can’t wait to dive in!

Did you guys get anything awesome in your mailboxes this week?
