In My Mailbox (August 28th, 2011)

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren (inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie) and indulges bookish voyeurism by letting bloggers show off what books they've gotten in their mailbox.

So, I got booooooks this week. Finally!

  • Cheat the Grave and The Neon Graveyard by Vicki Pettersson - These are the final two books in the Zodiac series - and I'm afraid I had to go out and get the horrid US covers. I would have gotten the UK ones... if they existed.
  • Corsets and Clockwork: 13 Steampunk Romances (Trisha Telep) - OK, yes this editor has gotten a whole lot of heat lately. And I completely and utterly understand (and agree) with that. But this anthology features a bunch of my very favourite authors (including some that pulled out of other anthologies because of Telep), so they are the ones I am reading for. I'm talking about Ann Aguirre, Maria V. Snyder, and Caitlin Kittredge (among others, of course).
  • Chain Reaction by Simone Elkeles - WHOOT!
  • Fevre Dream by George R.R. Martin - This is a vampire novel written by a living legend in fantasy... and it is set on a riverboat. What more can you possibly ask for?
  • Chime by Franny Billingsley - When I had first heard about this book, I hadn't been at all interested. Not only little bit. And then my twitter lit up with comments about it (then amazon had it on sale for £3.50), and suddenly I found myself looking forward to getting my hands on it.
And that's all! What did you get in your mailbox?


  1. You've got an absolutely amazing set of books! I really want to read Chime - I'll watch out for your review! :D

  2. Great books! Interested to hear what you think of Chime :)

    I also got Chain Reaction and my reaction was the same lol!

    My IMM this week.

  3. Corsets and Clockwork! Chain Reaction! Happy dance!!

  4. Ohhh Corsets & Clockwork *swoon* ENJOY

  5. I'm surprised you're keeping up with the zodiac books since I thought you didn't like them. Unless you're like me and you just wanted the closure from the series. ;) Book 4 completely tuned me off the series, but I had to get 5&6 JUST to finish it up. Let me know if you start reading the sixth book and get stumped by something right from the start. Seriously. I want to know if it was just me!

    I need to pick up Chime. I think I'm waiting for the paperback now though since it shouldn't be much longer and I have so many other books to read at home right now.

  6. Fevre Dream sounds awesome - I haven't heard of it before, but really need to pick that up!!

    Check out our Mailbox at Book Sake.

  7. Nice set of books this week. I have heard a lot of good things about Chime.
    Happy reading,

  8. I want that entire top row! *jealous* ;-)
