In My Mailbox (44)

September 16, 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!

I’ve returned to NetGalley my friends. I couldn’t help it. There were good books on there!


book cover for princess of the silver woods by Jessica Day George

Amazon | Goodreads

Princess of the Silver Woods: Princess # 3 by Jessica Day George (December 11, 2012 from Bloomsbury). I didn’t realize that this book is the third in a series, but they sound like companion-ish things more than sequential series books, and I’ve got some time to catch up on these fairy tale retellings (HELLO AWESOME!). This one sounds like a mash-up of Little Red Riding Hood and ROBIN HOOD, where the Merry Men are freaking werewolves. I mean…

book cover for flash point by Nancy Kress

Amazon | Goodreads

Flash Point by Nancy Kress (November 8, 2012 from Viking Juvenile). Dystopian novel about a future America after a HUMUNGOUS economic collapse where  the only work the main character, Amy, can get is as a contestant on a reality TV show. Sounds good. Also a little bit closer to home than other dystopians, and I find that I like those the best. Also, AMY. I can’t resist my namesakes.

book cover for Sirens by Janet Fox

Sirens: Faithful #3 by Janet Fox (November 8, 2012 from Speak). YO. So Janet Fox has written a couple of historical fictions. I haven’t read any of them yet, but even though this is listed as a series, they aren’t really. (Not that I don’t mean to read them anyway. LOVE historical fiction!) But SIRENS? Friends, 1920s New York with GANGSTERS. Historical fiction with the mob. I DIE. So excited for this one!
Thanks so much to Penguin and Bloomsbury for these books!
I’m so excited for the books I got this week! Hope you guys love what you got in your mailboxes, too!

    I started Princess of the Silver Woods the other day. Not too far into it, but it’s good so far! You should definitely check out the other books in this series; they do not disappoint!

    Oh sweet, I figured that Fox’s ‘series’ were more companion books that took place in the same world and not a real series (because they’re huge time disparities between them), but I wasn’t 100%. I resisted both Sirens and Princess of the Silver Woods, but I’m so excited to hear your thoughts! They both look wonderful. I have heard great things about the earlier novels in the Princess series, and as you say, they are more companion novels–I want to read them all!

    Ahhh, I got Sirens too!

    I did not know it was a companion book to Faithful though, which I have a signed copy of. Still though, SUPER EXCITED BECAUSE I LOVE THE 1920s!
