In My Mailbox (5)

In My Mailbox is a weekly book meme started by The Story Siren.

This week was a good week for free books.(Yay!)

Books I Won:

I won a copy of Banana Kiss from a fellow blogger's contest (blkosiner's book blog). I also won Jesus Potter Harry Christ from a Goodreads contest. I did, however, pass this book on to my dad since my shelf space is getting limited (again). His excitement over a new book makes it pretty obvious who I take after.

For Review:

The Dark City #1 (Relic Master)I received a copy in the mail of Relic Master: The Dark City  by Catherine Fisher from the publisher. This will be my next book to read. It looks really good! I also like that the remaining books in the series are set to hit the shelves over the next four months-- one book per month. I hate waiting for books to be released when I find a series that I like. I have zero patience.  

Princess Callie and the Totally Amazing Talking Tiara (Callie Chronicles)I also received an e-book of Princess Callie and the Totally Amazing Talking Tiara . It's a mouthful, I know! The review is coming of this book because it was just too cute. I really enjoyed it.



Books I Bought:

Ok, I admitI have a problem. I can't stop buying books. At least these were from a store and not off Ebay this time. (sigh) I picked up Once a Witch by Carolyn MacCullough and The Graveyard Book  by Neil Gaiman. Both of these books look great. I hate to put them at the end of my TBR shelf. (I'm working on shelf #2 at the moment.)

  2. Nice IMM this week and I definitely understand how it is to be losing space on your bookshelf! If it weren't for my NookColor I wouldn't even have a book blog, because I ran out of room long ago haha.

Summary from Goodreads: The light is darker than you think…

High school student Bobby Pendell already has his hands full—he works almost every night to support his disabled-vet father and gifted little brother. Then he meets the beautiful new girl in town, who just happens to be his boss’s daughter. Bobby has rules about that kind of thing. Nothing matters more than keeping his job.

When Bobby starts to get blinding migraines that come with scary, violent hallucinations, his livelihood is on the line. Soon, he must face the stunning possibility that the visions of murder are actually real. With his world going dark, Bobby is set on the trail of the serial killer terrorizing his small town. With everyone else convinced he’s the prime suspect, Bobby realizes that he, or the girl he loves, might be killer's next victim.

Blog Tour: A Perilous Journey of Danger and Mayhem (Christopher Healy)

It is 1883—the Age of Invention! A time when great men like Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, Nicola Tesla, and George Eastman work to turn the country into a mechanical-electrical-industrial marvel: a land of limitless opportunity. And it all happens at the world famous Inventors Guild headquarters in New York City—a place where a great idea, a lot of hard work, and a little bit of luck can find you rubbing elbows with these gods of industry who will usher humanity into the bright promise of the future.
Unless, of course, you’re a woman.
Molly Pepper, daughter of brilliant but unknown inventor Cassandra Pepper, lives with her mother in New York. By day, they make ends meet running a small pickle shop; but by night, they toil and dream of Cassandra shattering the glass ceiling of the Inventors Guild and taking her place among the most famous inventors in America. In an attempt to find a way to exhibit Cassandra’s work at the 1883 World’s Fair, they break into the Inventors Guild—and…

This week's question: Do you have any furry friends?


These are my fur babies: 

This is what it often looks like while I'm busy working. As you can tell, productivity is high. 


This is Lilly waiting for her boys to come home. She'll spend the entire day just like this if she's not sleeping next to me in my office. 

This is Roscoe. AKA The Boss. He runs the show around here. And yes, he has a sweater AND a coat for cold weather.
