In My Mailbox #99: New Books This Week

In My Mailbox idea from Kristi @ The Story Siren, and all links take you to Amazon. Click images for a bigger picture!

I received some really good books this week, and all have pretty cool covers. I'm particularly excited to read Ravenwood and Wereworld, as well as The Last Dragonslayer. Ravenwood came wrapped in a huge leaf, which is possibly the best promotion I've ever seen. Go Chicken House!

Bought:
  • What the Dickens by Gregory Maguire (This had a price sticker on it, and it ripped some of the cover off! Grrr.)


Happy reading, everyone!

I hate price stickers. That happens to me quite a bit too. Great books though!

Midnight Bloom said...

Wow! Great mailbox! Is it sad that the only novel I recognized was Last Sacrifice?

Happy Reading! :)

I just finished Last Sacfrice about 10 minutes ago, and I swear my jaw dropped a couple of million times. The ending surprised me. Well at least some parts of it did. Hope you like it :)

The YA book blogging community is talking about Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead. I never read anything by her. Should I?
I really want to read "What the Dickens"!
Happy Readings.

WHAT IS RAVENWOOD ABOUT?? There are no summaries anywhere! Gah! The cover makes me WANT IT NOW! Heh.

Also The Last Dragonslayer cover is brilliant! I think I might add that to my wishlist. ;)
