In My Mailbox (August 8, 2010)

The weekly In My Mailbox post is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. It is fun to see what everyone else gets in their mailboxes, shopping bags, and library visits. Click on the link to The Story Siren's site to see the rules and join in the fun.
I guarantee that your TBR pile will grow when you see all the cool books everyone gets. You will discover lots of wonderful blogs and lots of books that you won't be able to live without.

I got four YA books this week.
These two are YA Debuts and both have something to do with vampires. 

Infinite Days by Rebecca Maizel is her first book. In it a vampire becomes a 16-year-old human.

Almost to Die For by Tate Hallaway is her first YA book. Publishers Weekly gave this one a starred review. I like her Garnet Lacey series and hope this is as good.

Unexpected Magic by Diana Wynne Jones. I am a big fan of Diana Wynne Jones. I just discovered this book of short stories that I haven't read yet. 

I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore has been getting a lot of publicity on the blogs I read. It sounds like a great adventure story with some science fiction elements.

This is what I added to my TBR stack. What did you get?


  1. I love Dianna Wynne Jones!

    Hope you love Infinite Days :)

  2. Almost to Die For sounds promising. I have Infinite Days on my TBR list. I look forward to hearing what you think of them.
