In My Mailbox (4)

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!

I’m back from Thanksgiving! Hope everyone’s holiday was as fantastic as mine! Just a couple things this week, guys, but I’m excited about them. PLUS, my library got a shipment of some NEW STUFF (Yay!), so I’ve got great books to read.

FROM NETGALLEY

Dust Girl: The American Fairy Series, book 1, by Sarah Zettel (June 26, 2010 from Random House). A half-human, half-fairy girl from Dust Bowl-era Kansas goes on a journey to find her parents? I’m so intrigued by this! Of all the times and places you could imagine a fairy, I’ve never once thought of the Dust Bowl. I can’t wait to dig in!

New Girl, by Paige Harbison (January 31, 2012 from Harlequin Teen). You guys, a retelling of Rebecca?!? YES PLEASE! YES. PLEASE.

FROM THE LIBRARY

Virtuosity, by Jessica Martinez (October 18, 2011 from Simon Pulse). There seem to be a lot of books about kids who are active in the arts, no? I’m a big fan. Plus, this sounds so good and I love the cover!

The Survival Kit, by Donna Freitas (October 11, 2011 from Farrar, Straus and Giroux). I’ve been wanting to read this for ages and the library comes through in the clutch! Sounds like a great story that kind of reminds me of Maureen Johnson’s Little Blue Envelopes books. Can’t wait!

Firelight: Firelight, book 1, by Sophie Jordan (September 7, 2010 from Harper Teen). So I’m behind the times with this one. It’s been on the TBR for ages, and it’s finally come in for me. Really looking forward to this one.

Darkness Becomes Her: Gods & Monsters, book 1, by Kelly Keaton (February 22, 2011 from Simon Pulse). I have heard so many great things about this book, and I keep meaning to grab it. Paranormal romance in post-apocalyptic New Orleans? HUZZAH!

So, that’s the pile this week, my dears. Anything good in your mailboxes this week?

    Nice books from the library – The Survival Kit looks great, and I’ve heard good things about your other choices as well. I agree that New Girl sounds pretty good! I haven’t read Rebecca so hopefully that won’t get in the way of my enjoyment of the book. Looking forward to your review.

      It does! I’ve never read Rebecca, but maybe I could squeeze it in…who am I kidding? There’s no room to squeeze! I’m just going to have to jump into New Girl blind!

Tell me what's up!
