In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren. IMM features the books that we have bought, borrowed, received, or reviewed during the week.
I figured I would continue showing my massive haul from IRA in my weekly IMM posts. I did actually buy a few books this week to finish off a series. Plus, I found my free book coupons from Scholastic so I ordered $88 in free books! But I don't remember what I ordered. =)
What I bought:
The Cry of the Icemark, Blade of Fire, and Last Battle of the Icemark by Stuart Hill. A little witchcraft, some teenage angst, women warriors, characters named Cronus and Medea. Yep, the makings of a good series I do believe.
My IRA haul, Part 2:
The Black Heart Crypt by Chris Grabenstein. A ghostly mystery that features the leader of a clan of ghosts trying to hunt and kill Zack Jennings-- a member of the Jennings family that the ghost has a serious grudge against.
Populazzi by Elise Allen. A teenage girl tries a social experiment to reinvent herself when she starts a new high school, but everything goes wrong during the process.
Between by Jessica Warman. "...a roller-coaster ride of a mystery; one that is also a heartbreaking character study, a touching romance, and ultimately a hopeful tale of redemption, love, and letting go."
The Death Catchers by Jennifer Ann Kogler. Lizzy learns that she is a descendant of Morgan le Faye and must work with her best friend to save the world from Vivienne le Mort's plan to alter fate. One part Arthurian legend + one part paranormal = one awesome read!
Mister Creecher by Chris Priestly. Retelling of Frankenstein and the teenage boy that befriends him. I am so excited about this one. I read Frankenstein in 5th grade and have loved the story ever since! They just don't do the creature justice.
Fury by Elizabeth Miles. Imma leave this one alone because it seems too awesome for words! All I can say from the back of the book is that "three mysterious girls" (the Fates... the Furies... get it?) arrive in town to choose who will pay for their misdeeds, and the main characters--Em and Chase-- have been chosen. Oh, BTW, Chase has done something pretty wicked but is keeping it a secret.
