In My Mailbox (January 2nd-8th 2011)

Although I received many books over the holidays I didn't take appropriate photographs, plus there were just so many, that I figured the best bet in discussing what books I had gotten was to start over again in the new year. My first week of mail when I returned home after the holidays was definitely a welcome batch of awesomeness that I look forward to reading.

Jitters: A Quirky Little Audio Book by Adele Park (Audio book)
At least... I think I won this. I can't seem to find any record of how I would have come to receive it.

I'm really excited about all these books although I may have to stop accepting review copies for a little while, my to read stack is just so big. And wonderful. But very big. I've pretty much had to limit my reading to review copies until I get a chance to catch up a bit. How'd your mailbox treat you this week?


  1. What a great selection! I can't wait to read Across the Universe -- I'm really looking forward to that one, especially.

  2. You have CLOAKED?! I'm very jealous, I'ver really been enjoying Finn's fairy tale re-writes and can't wait for this one to come out.

    A WOMAN IN THE POLAR NIGHT and THE GIRL WITH GLASS FEET, both look really interesting. I'm going to have to go look those up.

    To check out what I got for this week here's my IMM

  12. I've heard great things about Across the Universe, I can't wait to read that one!

  13. I really want to read The Girl with Glass Feet. What a stunning image just in the title.

  14. This is a MUST HAVE for the incarnated Mermaid or lover of Mermaids indeed. The book is absolutely filled with MER information and written in such an eloquently creative style matching the era of today and keeping the flavor of the past alive too. I need to write the author a letter to thank her for such an exquisite work.
