In My Mailbox (7)

This meme is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. It's awesome, so feel free to join in!

I haven't written one of these posts in a while, which is sad because they're fun and creative. But, they do take a little more time than usual, and that's not something I've had much of lately.  Today, though, I'm trying to keep myself quietly occupied while my husband (who recently returned from building a house far, far away from here) sleeps in.

So, here's what I found in my mailbox this week:

Plus by Veronica Chambers: This came from YA Addict's ARC Tours. I've already read it; it's super quick and easy to read. I'll post a review soon!

Sleepless by Cyn Balog: Won from Random Buzzers. I'm pretty excited to read it because I've never read anything by this author.

Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly. This was sent to me for review by Random House. I'm looking forward to reading this book because I loved Donnelly's A Northern Light, which we read last year in the Chick Lit Book Club. Like A Northern Light, this book is historical fiction. But, this one includes a modern story with a historical one. It will be released in October.

Tyger Tyger by Kersten Hamilton. Yay! This book was sent to me for Kersten Hamilton's Author Spotlight this week. It arrived a little too late for me to read it, but I'm going to include it in a giveaway that Ms. Hamilton and I have planned for next week. There's still time to win some Tyger Tyger bookmarks in this week's giveaway, so make sure to enter!

Hidden Wives by Claire Avery. I won this book from Trisha's Book Blog. I am intrigued by the practice and subject of polygamy. I find it amazing and horrific that young girls are forced to marry older men in our country and almost nothing is done about it. I'll probably read this fairly quickly and pass it on to spread the word.

And, here's a picture of a butterfly. There were about a dozen of these beauties fluttering around my driveway this morning. I couldn't get a group photo, but here's one little beauty who paused long enough for picture:

  1. I got Revolution this week too as part of an ARC tour. I've only just started it. Tyger Tyger sounds really good and so does Hidden Wives.

    I hope you enjoy all of these. I will check back for your review of Plus.
