In My Mailbox (15)

February 19, 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!

This week is about quality not quantity, friends. Check it!


Kill Me Softly, by Sarah Cross (April 10, 2012 from EgmontUSA). Guys, I am SO EXCITED about this book. I’ve been waiting for it basically because it sounds like Once Upon a Time in a book, and THAT sounds BANANAS. 

(Thanks muchly to Egmont USA for this gem!)


Virtuosity, by Jessica Martinez. I love reading about young people who have creative talents like drawing or music or dancing, mostly because I can’t really do any of those things at all, so I get to pretend vicariously that I’m artistically gifted. This book is about a violinist who gets caught up in some relationship dramz that could affect her winning a major competition. VIOLINIST. #mydreaminstrument

Lady of the Forest and Lady of Sherwood: Sherwood #1 and #2, by Jennifer Roberson. ROBIN ‘OOD!! Maid Marian!! And a pox on the phony king of England, Prince John!! I love Robin Hood, and I’ve heard admittedly both good and not-so-good things about Jennifer Roberson’s Sherwood series, but I love the Robin Hood legend so much that I’m going for it. I had NO IDEA though that the first book is a DOOR STOP. Good thing I LOVE door stops!

How about you, my dears? Anything tremendous in your mailboxes?

    Oooh! I’m excited about Kill Me Softly too! Once Upon a Time in book form? Yes please! Sounds like a great week of reading is coming your way!

    I just recent (this morning in fact!) requested Kill Me Softly for EXACTLY the reason you said: Once Upon a Time in book form. Yes please! ♥ Enjoy!!

    Ooh, those Sherwood books sound like they’d be right up my alley (and I do love me some door stops). I’ll have to check them out.

    HOLY CANOLI. Please keep me posted on the Robin Hood books. Of course, this kid loves Robin Hood. You could have guessed it because YOU love Robin Hood and we are frequently the same.

    Kill Me Softly sounds baller.

    ALSO, JENNIFER ROBERSON! SHE ROCKS! I don’t know why I am caps locking when I have only ever read one book by her — I mean it was a good book – Sword Dancer. Anyways, I am jealous. That’s all.

    Happy reading, Amy! 😀

    I have seen Kill Me Softly around a bit and am getting pretty curious. I look forward to seeing what you think of it. Enjoy your reads.

    I saw Kill Me Softly on Netgalley and was very tempted to click that request button. But OMG I have to catch up on my other review titles. It sounds amazing though and I eagerly await your review. My daughter is going to a Once Upon a Time themed bday party this week-such a great show.

    Virtuosity also sounds awesome and I love when the arts are incorporated into books.
    Happy reading, Amy!

    YES! IT IS OUAT IN BOOK FORM. Egmont is NOT APPROVING MY REQUESTS. I have one that’s still “new” and the books been PUBLISHED. Your blog makes me feel the need to use lots of caps.

    Happy reading! My IMM:
