In My Mailbox #2

Posted by The Obscured Vixen on September 11, 2011

For Review
The Golden Sky by EC Stilson. A memoir: The “death home” gave my son a really nice funeral, the kind I’d never wished to attend.  When they tried closing his casket, I nearly fell on my face, not wanting them to shut the lid on my baby.
Huge thanks to EC Stilson.

Purchased
Envy
by JR Ward. As the son of a serial killer, homicide detective Thomas DelVecchio Jr grew up in the shadow of evil. Now, on the knife-edge between civic duty and blind retribution, he atones for the sins of his father.

Won
Triangles by Ellen Hopkins. Ellen Hopkins has made her mark as the wildly popular author of several novels for young adults—every one of them a New York Times bestseller, and every one a hard-hitting exploration of tough-to-tackle topics. Now, in Triangles, Hopkins brings her storytelling mastery and fearlessness to take on the challenges of adult dramas.
Thanks to Simon & Schuster.

Dark Passage (Dark Mirror #2) by M.J. Putney. The Irregulars return home to 1803 England safely, but their worldview has changed. Not only have their heroic efforts at Dunkirk given them pride and confidence but their dangerous mission has increased their magical powers.

Autographed copy of Griffin Rising by Darby Karchut. Griffin Rising is an urban fantasy about an apprentice angel and his coming of age under the tutelage of a father-like mentor. As one of the mysterious Terrae Angeli, Griffin secretly navigates life among humans while preparing for the trial-by-combat every apprentice must pass or become mortal.
Thanks to Darby!

ARC copy of The Fox Inheritance (Jenna Fox Chronicles #2) by Mary E. Pearson. Once there were three. Three friends who loved each other—Jenna, Locke, and Kara. And after a terrible accident destroyed their bodies, their three minds were kept alive, spinning in a digital netherworld. Even in that disembodied nightmare, they were still together.
Thanks to Karissa!

ARC copy of Fury (The Fury Trilogy #1) by Elizabeth Miles. Between cozy traditions and parties with her friends, Emily loves the holidays. And this year’s even better–the guy she’s been into for months is finally noticing her. But Em knows if she starts things with him, there’s no turning back. Because his girlfriend is Em’s best friend.
Thanks to Karissa!

ARC copy of So Silver Bright (Theatre Illuminata #3) by Lisa Mantchev. All Beatrice Shakespeare Smith has ever wanted is a true family of her own. And she’s close to reuniting her parents when her father disappears.
Thanks to Karissa!

ARC copy of After Obsession by Carrie Jones and Steven E. Wedel. Aimee and Alan have secrets. Both teens have unusual pasts and abilities they prefer to keep hidden. But when they meet each other, in a cold Maine town, they can’t stop their secrets from spilling out. Strange things have been happening lately, and they both feel that something-or someone- is haunting them.
Thanks to Karissa!

ARC copy of The Ronin’s Mistress (Sano Ichiro #5) by Laura Joh Rowland. Japan, 1703. On a snowy night, 47 warriors murder the man at the center of the scandal that turned them from samurai into masterless ronin two years before. Clearly this was an act of revenge–but why did they wait so long?
Thanks to Cassie!
