In My Mailbox (April 17th, 2011)

I have books this week - YAY!  *applauds*  Funny, I thought getting a job would mean more books, not less.. hmm... anyhow, here's what I got this week:


  • Temeraire by Naomi Novik - I was so excited to find this one in a charity shop!  It's a historical/Napoleonic take on dragons and has had some fantastic reviews.  Apparently this is supposed to be the perfect alternative dragon book for those of us who found Paolini's writing rather dull.
  • The Gathering by Kelley Armstrong - Like the good girl I am, I finished off all my other books before starting this one.  I am terrified that it won't live up to the Darkest Powers trilogy... but, given the awesomeness of the first chapter, I think I need not worry.
  • On the Way to the Wedding by Julia Quinn - I am not much of a historical fiction fan, let alone historical romances.  But Julia Quinn is supposed to be worth her weight in salt, so I'll be giving her a shot.
C'est tout!  I plan on splurging on a few books tomorrow evening if I spend the day studying - a reward to myself, if you will.  Alas, books take over a week to get here which means a whole lot of loathsome waiting will be required if I do go shopping online!

  2. I love kelley Armstrong and while I will pick up The Gathering, I probably won't read it until I have all three books in the trilogy in my hands - I couldn't bear a year's wait between reading the books! :-)

  4. Great books this week. I love Kelley Armstrong, I got The Gathering last week but am going to read The Darkest Powers trilogy first as I've only read the first book.
    I love Julia Quinn but I have only read her last 3 books not her earlier stuff.
    Happy reading.
    Sally.

  5. Wow, Temeraire sounds good. I will await your review of that one. Nice find. Also, glad to hear you're enjoying The Gathering. I still hate the cover though ;)
