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’s mailbox is brought to you by Amy’s Amazon Visa! (And one from NetGalley.) Seriously, it’s getting a smidge out of hand over here. Although let’s be serious: the day I stop buying books is one of the signs of the apocalypse; keep your fingers crossed that this never happens, friends.
The Assassin’s Curse: The Assassin’s Curse # 1 by Cassandra Rose Clarke (October 2, 2012 from Ctrange Chemistry). WHOA. Assassins? Check. Pirates? Check. Magic? Check. Middle Eastern-like setting? Check. THREE IMPOSSIBLE TASKS TO COMPLETE TO SAVE THE LIFE OF THE ASSASSIN MEANT TO KILL YOU (WHO INEVITABLY BECOMES THE LOVE INTEREST, RIGHT?)? CHECK! If I hadn’t seen this one on Heidi’s IMM last week, I might have missed it. But I didn’t. THANKFULLY.
Seraphina: Seraphina #1 by Rachel Hartman. Guys, I have been looking forward to this debut fantasy for a long time. First of all, the cover is so gorgeous, I can’t even deal. It’s a WOODBLOCK engraving. I mean…. Plus, there’s dragons in this book. I can’t wait to dive in.
Insignia: Insignia #1 by S.J. Kincaid. This one has been getting all kinds of mad love lately. It’s not something that would usually immediately grab my attention, but it’s definitely been on my radar: gaming, virtual reality, a military academy, and World War Three. I’m thinking that this one is going to be LEGIT.
That’s it for me this week, guys! Small but still AWESOME, right?! Hope you guys got some super stuff this week, too!
