In My Mailbox (Feb. 7, 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.

Here is what I got this week:

The House Under the Sand by Kage Baker -- This is Ms. Baker's only middle grade book. She wrote science fiction for adults. It has gotten good reviews.

The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan and The Battle for the Labyrinth by Rick Riordan. I needed books 4 and 5 in this series to go with the boxed set of the first three that I got at Christmas time. The movie comes out next week.

L. A. Candy by Lauren Conrad will help me expand the kind of books I read. It is not a paranormal book.

Just Listen by Sarah Dessen. I was shopping at Amazon and needed to buy four books for the price of three. Since I have never read anything by Dessen, I decided to try this one as my free book.

The Vampire Diaries Vol. 2 by L. J. Smith -- I recently finished Vol. 1 and want to know what happens next.


Golden, Tattoo and Fate by Jennifer Lynn Barnes were chosen because I have never read anything by her. I know she has a new book coming out soon called Raised by Wolves which I really want to read. I thought I would try these first.

I also won a book this week from Karin at Karin's Book Nook. The book is The Lonely Hearts Club by Elizabeth Eulberg. It is a book by a 2010 YA Debut Author (even though it was published on Dec. 29, 2009.)

Don't they look good?
