In My Mailbox (37)

22 Jul

July 22, 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!

Couple of good ones this week, friends. They sound cute/awesome/fun. Or, in the case of one of them, already ARE awesome. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. 

NETGALLEY

Book cover for The Demon Catchers of Milan by Kat Beyer

The Demon Catchers of Milan by Kat Beyer (August 28, 2012 from EgmontUSA). So this one sounds like it has the potential to be LEGIT. Italian demon hunters? Ancient evils? A young American girl who must travel to her ancestral home in Milan to learn the tricks of the family trade? LOTS of potential, I’d say.

Book cover for Rockoholic by C.J. Skuse

Rockoholic by C.J. Skuse (November 1, 2012 from Scholastic). So I’m not entirely sure that this book is actually new. But it IS new to me, so I guess that counts. Plus it sounds like BOATLOADS of good times: a young girl goes to a concert of her favorite band and “accidentally” (I can’t wait to see how THAT works) kidnaps the lead singer, and now he won’t leave her house. The Goodreads summary quotes “Paparazzi” by Lady Gaga, which could be…not flattering. But also hilarious. I’ll take a flyer on it.

(Tackle hugs to EgmontUSA and Scholastic for these puppies!)

BOUGHT

Book cover for Small Damages by Beth Kephart

Small Damages by Beth Kephart. I’ve been totally enthralled by the sound of this book for awhile now, and when I heard some people whose opinions I trust completely REALLY loving it, I knew that SMALL DAMAGES would be great. I LOVE Spain, and so when this book came in the mail this week, I really couldn’t hold off reading it. So far, it’s poignant and bittersweet and lovely. PLUS! Guys! It’s a really cute, little trim size, and I just die for those little books!

That’s it for me this week, guys! I hope you all got some super goodies in your mailboxes this week!

    All 3 books look and sound really interesting. I’m particularly looking forward to hearing your thoughts on Small Damages.

    Small Damages does look great. I am looking forward to your review so I can decide if I want to check it out or not. ALSO. Same with that Milan book.

    YAYYY NETGALLEY AND EBOOKS!

    Rockaholic was absolutely amazing for me! I read the UK edition last year and I absolutely loved it, it’s wacky and funny!

    I saw Rockaholic on NetGalley! Already have quite a few requests pending, though, so I’m holding off for now. I love books that have music in them!

    Small Damages looks like a good read … the cover is very cute!

    Enjoy your reading!
