ARC's Galore!!! Mailbox Monday (on Tuesday, No Less!)

A SERIOUS week with the ARC's rolling in. I need to get a grip....fast!! Just wanted to share some of my books!

Land Of Marvels by Barry Unsworth. (Actually, I'm not really sure where this one came from. It just showed up on my doorstep!!) It's a historical fiction/thriller from the Booker Prize winner, Barry Unsworth. Sounds like a fantastic read!!








Bones of the Dragon (Book 1 in the Dragonships of Vindras Series) by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman is an ARC that I picked up from Shelf Awareness. Published in January, this one looks like it will be right up my alley!! Gotta love a good fantasy book. I can't wait to read this one!








Buffalo Girl by Laura Pederson is a memoir. Laura Pederson is the youngest person to ever hold a seat on the New York Stock Exchange. It's about her life growing up in Buffalo. This one was sent to me by Anna from The Book Report.








The Break-up Diet by Annette Fix is a memoir as well. I'm touring this book for Annette's Blog Tour. Sounds like it will be a fun one!











The Unseen by Nancy Bush isn't released until until April 1. It's a thriller and was sent to me by Kim from Nancy Berland Public Relations. I just finished a book that Nancy co-wrote with her sister Lisa Jackson and it was really good.








Fashionably Late by Nadine Dajani is a book that I won from S. Krishna's blog!!











The Judging Eye by R. Scott Bakker is a LibraryThing ARC. It is the first book in an all-new Epic Fantasy series. Another one right up my alley!










True Colors by Kristin Hannah is a new release from the popular author. It was another book sent to me by Anna from the Book Report!











Finally, I received my own copy of The Terror by Dan Simmons (don't forget to sign up from my giveaway!). Sent to me by Valerie from Hatchette Books!!







Now it's time to get back to my reading!!

Sheesh, Stephanie...you're never going to have time to blog with all those books to get read. :)

Chris said...

Damn Steph! You hit the ARC jackpot this week!

Nadine said...

Hi Stephanie,

Nadine here, author of Fashionably Late... hope you enjoy it!

Nicola said...

Wow! Great haul!

I got Land of Marvels, too. Looks really good. I requested mine from RHCanada but it was in Shelf Awareness too. And I hope, hope, hope I win The Terror!

No fair. Fantasy fangirl here wants to read the Weis and Hickman book. :( Not that I really need it in any hurry, just felt the need to point it out!

Good haul, though. :)

Melody said...

Great books! I too have Buffalo Girl in my pile too! :)

DesLily said...

Ohhhh wow!
I've read more than my share of Weis and Hickman books! Whats the secret to an arc of that one?!!

If that weis/ hickman book is anything like their others you are in for a good read... and a trilogy at least I am sure! Wish they would come out with the 3rd book of their last trilogy, it was to be about Raistlin and he's a great character to write about.

ooh! you got loads!!

that dan simmons looks interesting! i've recently discovered him - although, i say that, but i haven't actually read any of his stuff yet. i've discovered him in the way that most of us have - by reading about him. and he's subsequently gone onto my ever-growing Authors To Be Investigated Pile :D

Good Lord Almighty! You really are a Book-a-Holic!

I am a big memoir fan so the two that you listed sound really interesting to me! I'll have to check them out.

I was just stopping by to say thanks for visiting my blog and I came over via your profile page and I don't think I've seen so many blogs listed on one person's profile before! Yikers!

I've heard quite a few of these are really good. Hope you enjoy!!!

Jason Pratt said...

I can't help but be intrigued about comparisons and contrasts between The Judging Eye and Cry of Justice... {lol!} (Which, for those who haven't read it, also has a judging eye. That's the company logo, too, which can be seen on the spine.)
