In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren (inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie) and indulges bookish voyeurism by letting bloggers show off what books they’ve gotten in their mailbox.
The books I got this week were all ones that I’ve had on my wishlist forever… a wishlist summer cleaning, if you will!
- Dune by Frank Herbert – Dune is an absolute SF classic. While I know it is pretty much the go-to book for SF fans, I probably wouldn’t have picked it up if my non-SF-fan friend hadn’t recommended it! Also, amazon had this “masterworks” hardcover on sale for something like £5. Easy choice!
- State of Wonder by Ann Patchett – OMG the EXCITEMENT. I adore Ann Patchett. Her writing is simple but just so beautiful and emotional. I absolutely can’t wait to read this!
- Daughter of Hounds by Caitlin R. Kiernan – I adored a story of Kiernan’s that I read last year, but I never got around to buying any of her books! Hope the book is as beautiful as the cover.
- Trial by Fire by Jennifer Lynn Barnes – This is the sequel to Raised by Wolves, which really surprised me. I’m looking forward to more from Barnes’ werewolf verse!
- Hourglass by Claudia Gray – Bianca is pretty much the worst main character ever… but that said, I like everything else in Claudia’s verse. I hope Hourglass is ok!
- Academy 7 by Anne Osterlund – Despite this misleading cover, this is actually a Sci-Fi YA novel! It is supposed to be fantabulous, so it’s right up there on my TBR pile.
So, that’s it! Aren’t they are lovely and shiny and all so very readable… what did you get in your mailbox?
