In My Mailbox (January 16th-22nd 2011)

SO MANY GOOD BOOKS THIS WEEK. And just so many books in general! I love the library but I'm afraid I won't have an excuse to go for another year considering how many unread wonderful sounding books I have to read. I'm trying to keep on a good schedule in my spare time and stick mostly to review copies though, and with ones this good coming to my mailbox it isn't hard.

{For Review}
When We Were Strangers by Pamela Schoenewaldt (Harper Collins Canada)
The Postmistress by Sarah Blake (TLC Tours)
Night Soul and Other Stories by Joseph McElroy (Dalkey Archive Press)
Half in Love: A Memoir by Linda Gray Sexton (TLC Tours)
Shadow Tag by Louise Erdrich (TLC Tours)
The Remains by Vincent Zandri (Pump Up Your Book Tours)
The World Beneath by Cate Kennedy (Grove/Atlantic, Inc)
The Lover's Dictionary by David Levithan (D&M Publishers Inc.)

I also got a huge package of ARCs from Random House Canada YA division, some of which have already been released. They asked if I was interested in a surprise parcel and I said, of course. However there are a few of these I probably won't read so they may end up as a giveaway or for people willing to pay shipping. I have to sort that whole thing out in the upcoming weeks. 
Beat the Band by Don Calame (ARC)
The Hunt of the Unicorn by C.C. Humphreys (ARC)
Requiem: Poems of the Terezin Ghetto by Paul B. Janeczko (ARC)
Blood Magic by Tessa Gratton (ARC)
Boys, Bears, and a Serious Pair of Hiking Boots by Abby McDonald (ARC)
Rotters by Daniel Kraus (ARC)
Owl Ninja by Sandy Fussell (ARC)
The 10 p.m. Question by Kate De Goldi (ARC)
Day of Deliverance by Johnny O'Brien (ARC)

Effigy by Theresa Danley (Thanks Drey's Library)
Tempted by Fate by Kate Perry (Thanks Cuzinlogic)
The Demon's Covenant by Sarah Rees Brennan (Thanks Books Complete Me)
Lipstick in Afghanistan by Roberta Gately (Thanks Book Club Classics)

A bunch of the giveaway I won all arrived at once, so that was also really great. How was your mailbox this week?


  1. I just read and reviewed The Lover's Dictionary. I loved it. I hope you enjoy it as well.

  2. :-O What a haul! I would LOVE to get Blood Magic by Tessa Gratton, can't wait to read that one. Enjoy them all;)

  3. Wow, what an incredible haul! My mailbox this week was.....empty. Junk mail and bills and the occasional magazine. Sad, but probably good. One more week to work on the zillions of books I've already got!

    Enjoy your new goodies! =)

  4. Can I just say wowsa, great going.

    I have only read Remains from your list and enjoyed it, look forward to more works from VincentZ.

  6. Wow! And I thought I'd had a lot of books this week! Awesome haul. Hope you enjoy them.

  7. Awesome haul! Thank you for sharing :)

  8. Read all the Candlewick ones!

  9. I am jealous of The Lover's Dictionary: I'm dying to read it! I got Shadow Tag for review too and am looking forward to it. I'll be curious to see what you think of The Postmistress too. Happy reading!
