In My Mailbox

A quietish week while I wrote proposals for fall events and got ready for next week when we're hosting The Magic Tree House as a play on Wednesday for the little ones, John Flanagan on Saturday, Andrea Alban with Anya's War on Sunday May 1st, which is Holocaust Memorial Day, Neal Shusterman on Tuesday May 3, and JL Powers and Emily Wing-Smith on Wednesday May 4. Whew.

And then there are the books I received this week. One of which I had been waiting and waiting for. My thanks, as ever, to the Story Siren for hosting this meme. Now to the books (lucky me!)

1. Everlost by Neal Shusterman
I bought this to read because Neal is coming next week for the third in this series. I had no idea it was this good. I loved - really loved - Unwind. It still haunts me. Enjoyed Full Tilt, The Schwa Was here, and Antsy Does Time but somehow hadn't got to this series. But it is very very good. Try it.

2. Enthralled, edited by Melissa Marr and Kelley Armstrong
OK, this was the book I clutched to my chest and jumped around with glee when I saw it. This is the anthology put together by the women who made up the Smart Chicks. This will be fabulous, because all the writers are fabulous. And yes, I've already started it.

3. Supernaturally by Kiersten White
I so enjoyed Paranormalcy so am thrilled to get my hands on this sequel.

4. The Eleventh Plague by Jeff Hirsch
Blurbed by Suzanne Collins (always a good thing) this is another dystopia (and I love dystopias)about an America left ravaged by war where two thirds of the population are dead from a sickness they call the Eleventh Plague.

5. Sweet Venom by Tera Lynn Childs
Three teenage descendants of Medusa must reunite to embrace their fates. Loved Oh. My. Gods nad Goddess Boot Camp. Looking forward to this.

6. The Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon
Romance, a unique supernatural hook, and an irish setting. Sweet.

What did you get this week?
