In My Mailbox (#10)


In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren.

I am very happy with my books this week. I bought two and received three for review. I think as of next week I will also post a summary of the book as well.

For Review:


Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger (Scribner – sent by Regal Literary). I was so happy when I received an email asking me if I would like to review Her Fearful Symmetry, my answer: Hell Yeah!!

Silent Killer by Beverly Barton (sent by Avon). When I read the press release the publicist send with their email, I thought it sounded really good. I love crime/thriller novels.

Warrior of the West by M. K. Hume (sent by Headline Review). This sounds like a really great fantasy, looking forward to reading this one.

Bought:


Drood by Dan Simmons. I’ve had my eye on this for a while. It sounds so great; very atmospheric and interesting.

Passion by Louise Bagshawe. I love books by this author, yes they are a bit trashy but just so much fun to read, especially when on holiday!

So, what books did you get this week?

Interesting cover for Audrey's novel, like it is an aged cover page.
Great books!

I'll look forward to your review of Her Fearful Symmetry. I've been wondering if it might be something I'd like!

I don't know a single person out here that doesn't want to read Her Fearful Symmetry. Way to go! And Drood has always intrigued me, until I saw it had like two million pages. Ooof!

You've got some great ones there! I'm waiting for Drood to come out in paperback before I add that one to my TBR collection. Make it easier to lug around to work and back with me. :-)

Ooh… I want Her Fearful Symmetry so bad. And I almost bought Drood yesterday. But I am broke, so I refrained.
Good stuff!

Great selection of books! Add me to the list of those totally jealous that you received Her Fearful Symmetry! *L* Really looking forward to that one!

I remember Drood getting good reviews, but I haven't made up my mind about that one yet.

Enjoy all of your lovely books! :)
