In My Mailbox


In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by the Story Siren to highlight all the wonderful bookish things bought, borrowed, downloaded, or received during the week.
 
 
I have been soooo busy with work and such these past few weeks, which has caused me to seriously slack in the blogging department. I've been swapping books with my pops lately. I've started him on YA literature, and he keeps pushing his "grown up" books on me. It's a love-hate relationship. =)
 
Received:
World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair that Changed America
 
It's worth mentioning that I gave my dad Rot and Ruin to read (which he enjoyed) after I saw him reading World War Z. He likes zombies. He also gave me Devil in the White City. I'm not a fan of non-fiction, but this one looks awesome. He says it's "non-fiction that reads like fiction." Score. Oh, and did I mention it's about the serial killer at the 1893 World's Fair?

I'm ashamed to admit this, but I've had this book for at least a year. It was given to me by a publisher at a teacher convention last year. I put it on my shelf with my Holocaust books to read, but I forgot all about it. Until last week... Since April 18th was Holocaust Remembrance Day, I wanted to read something new on the topic. I started looking around in my books, and found this one. I know it's not "new," but in a way it is because it was collecting dust! (I'm hanging my head in shame.)

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. 

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…
