In My Mailbox #10

In My Mailbox was started by The Story Siren. It's a way to share and highlight all the books we receive, even if we don't review them. l share books that I buy, that I receive for review, get from the library, borrow from a friend, etc.

It's been a month since my last IMM post. I was sick all of November, and even ended up in the hospital. I was so sick, I didn't even have the energy to read. O_o I'm on the mend finally and back to work, which means most nights I'm tired to read, lol. Still, I did get some new books over the past month.


Chicks Kick Butt is an anthology of urban fantasy and paranormal stories where the focus is on strong heroines. The Near Witch is a YA fantasy/fairy tale that I have heard very good things about. 


I love Margaret Maron's Southern Bootlegger mystery series; a co-worker introduced me to it a few years ago and I've gobbled up the entire series. She has another mystery series set in New York and in this book, the two series come together.

Say You'll Be Mine and The Legacy of Eden both sound a bit soap opera-ish but seem interesting so I thought I would give them a try.

What did you get in your mailbox this week?

  7. Grace, that's odd about GFC. Maybe it has to do with Google dropping it? I heard they're no longer providing support for it.

  11. Now see, it's those kinds of comments that have whet my appetite for The Near Witch. LOL

    Kara, I try to have some variety to what I read though I'm not nearly as eclectic as I could be. Generally, if something catches my attention, regardless of genre,I'll try it.


Thanks for taking the time to comment. I enjoy hearing from my readers. Let;s talk!
