In My Mailbox (42)

August 26, 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!

Holla for alternative formats! Got some REALLY great books in electronic and audio format this week, friends. And yes, that means NetGalley. *looks shameful* But it’s a really cute one! 

NETGALLEY

Book cover for Secrets of Shakespeare's Grave by Deron R. Hicks

Amazon | Goodreads

Secrets of Shakespeare’s Grave by Deron R. Hicks (September 4, 2012 from Houghton Mifflin Books for Children). Umm, seriously? How could I resist a book about a young girl with family secrets involving LITERATURE, along with basically a travel-through-time-and-the-world bookish middle grade adventure.

BOUGHT

Book cover for Angefall by Susan Ee
Angelfall: Penryn and the End of Days #1 by Susan Ee. So, ANGELS. I am for sure waaaaaay behind on angel books and while I have enjoyed the ones I’ve read, I’m not sure that I’ll get around to reading a whole ton of them. That being said, this book–ANGELFALL–sounds pretty legit. It’s basically the story of the post-apocalypse world, except the REAL BIBLICAL one, not some man-made disaster like wars or disease. The main character teams up with a fallen angel to rescue a missing family member and the DRAMZ ensues. I can’t believe I’ve missed this one for so long. It sounds fantastic.
Book cover for Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness
Shadow of Night: All Souls Trilogy #2 by Deborah Harkness. Guys, I am loving Audible lately.  I used one of my credits to buy the audiobook for the sequel to A DISCOVERY OF WITCHES, which was actually pretty great. A little adult paranormal does the body good, friends. I’ve never listened to a book from Penguin Audiobooks before, but the little sample of narrator Jennifer Ikeda sounds awesome. I’m really looking forward to seeing (hearing!) what happens to Matthew and Diana.

I’m so excited for the books I got this week! Hope you guys love what you got in your mailboxes, too!

    Okay I’ve heard SUCH good things about Angelfall from so many people. Like the ‘if you’re going to read one angel book it should be this one’ kind of things, so I hope that you like it. Also I think The Secrets of Shakespeare’s Grave looks totally cute, and I can’t wait to see what you think. I’ve been good and more or less sworn off Netgalley until I catch up, but if your thoughts are wonderful, I’ll be looking for it at the library. =)
