In My Mailbox

In My Mailbox explores the contents of my mailbox on a weekly basis. Of course I only mention things like books! And here's my wonderful collection of books this week with thanks, as ever, to The Story Siren and Pop Culture Junkie who host and inspired this meme.

Radiant Shadows by Melissa Marr
I've been on a reading slump recently and the lovely Nancy, the Ravenous Reader, kindly loaned me this. I feel so very, very lucky. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Nancy.

The Karma Club by Jessica Brody
The story of one girl's attempt to speed Karma along only to discover that Karma plays by its own rules

Wereling by Steve Feasey
Trey is a 14 year old just turned werewolf who finds demons are closing in and a psychopathic vampire wants to destroy him. But he has to face the question of whether he is a boy or a beast.

The Wager by Donna Jo Napoli
Don Giovanni loses everything after a tidal wave and, against his better judgment, enters into a deal with the devil: he will not change his clothes or bathe for three years, three months, and three days

Golden Web by Barbara Quick

An imagining of the story of Alesandra Giliam, the world's first female anatomist (set in 14th century Italy).

The Fool's Girl by Celia Rees

I'm so pleased to have A GOLDEN WEB included in your list... and I'm so excited about its upcoming publication on April 6--I can't wait to share this beautiful story with the world! I do hope I'll be able to do the South Bay launch of the book at Kepler's.
