Talk about Christmas in July! I hadn't realized how many books I had pre-ordered that were to be published on July 26 until the packages started arriving. I think I got new books every day this week.

Here they are:
I hadn't really heard much about Wildefire by Karsten Knight until I started to see it all over the blogosphere. I had to jump on the bandwagon and get myself a copy too.

Shadows on the Moon by Zoe Marriott arrived this week too. I had this one on my Amazon wishlist for months but Amazon never got it. I finally ordered a copy from The Book Depository after I saw still another great review.
Touch of Frost by Jennifer Estep got on my radar because I read the first in her Elemental Assassins series and loved her style. I had to try her young adult book.

I have been waiting for Supernaturally by Kiersten White since I finished Paranormalcy. I can not wait to see what Evie gets up to next.
Wolfsbane by Andrea Cremer is another book that I have been waiting for since I finished the last page of its predecessor - Nightshade. 

I got a Kindle copy of Thirteenth Child by Patricia C. Wrede because I wanted to read it again before I read Wrede's latest - Across the Great Barrier. It was as entertaining and engaging this time as it was the first time I read it.
I chose Dragon's Tooth by N. D. Wilson as my Amazon Vine pick for this month. It sounded like something I would enjoy.

I also got a free copy of First Frost by Jennifer Estep for my Kindle because it goes with Touch of Frost.

Those were my new arrivals this week. What did you get in your mailbox?
