In My Mailbox (10)



IMM is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren.

I received a book in the mail for review:
The Wild Adventures of Eli Johnson and Curly Bill
The Wild Adventures of Eli Johnson and Curly Bill by Dan Wright.

I'm going to start reading this tonight with the boy child. It's a western/ action and adventure story. It sounded like something my 8 year old would love, so I'm happy to read and review this book. It should be good ole' mommy-child bonding over books.

I downloaded a few (free) books off the Sony e-reader store:


The Strange Case of Finley Jayne
The Strange Case of Finley Jane by Kady Cross.

Summer's Crossing
Summer's Crossing by Julie Kagawa.

Last week's Amazon order came in the mail!

D'Aulaires' Book of Trolls (New York Review Children's Collection)
D'Aulaires' Book of Trolls 
D'Aulaires' Book of Norse Myths
D'Aulaires' Book of Norse Mythology.
 
Of course, I plan on stopping into Barnes and Noble tomorrow while I'm out bathing suit shopping. So this list could change. =)

  2. Yay, your mythology books came! Future MM, mayhaps? ^.~

    Oh, did you hear that STORK by Wendy Delsol has some Norse mythology AND Hans Christian Andersen roots? I want to read this...

    Oh, and I responded about WARPED, etc. Did you wind up snagging a copy yet?

  3. The free e-books you downloaded are both fantastic! Loved getting into Puck's mind--he actually is vulnerable for a few pages!--and loved reading more about Finley Jane. Like Cait said, I loved the Girl in the Steel Corset!

    Happy reading!!

Book Blitz: Visions by Lisa Amowitz

Vision by Lisa Amowitz Release Date: 09/09/14 Spencer Hill Press
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.

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.

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…
