Mailbox Monday



Well, it looks like this week I hit the mother lode of ARC's! Dang. I need to get a grip on all of them or I think I could be in some serious trouble!! Considering how poorly I ended up reading in January, February had better be a great reading month!!


First of all, I need to thank Miriam Parker from Hatchette Books. She could possibly be my new best friend!! She had posted on Book Blogs about a book tour involving Vampire/Werewolf books. OK....you all know my love of all things vampire related, so I sent her an email. Turns out, she's organizing a blog tour for Carrie Vaughn's newest books in the Kitty Norville series. Of course, I haven't read any of the previous books, but I did express my interest. Imagine my surprise when a box arrived from Hatchette books...with all 6 of the books in the series!! I'm super excited about these!!





Next, I'm doing a blog tour for Jason Pratt's book Cry of Justice. Another book that is sure to be right up my alley. "HOPE AND LOVE - PRIDE AND HONOR. Monsters wander the world of Mikon. Caught in the aftermath of a vicious international war, thousands of refugees have fled the Coastal States, bringing their dangers with them into the wilderness near the untamed Middlelands." It's a fantasy book, and one that sound like a lot of fun. I'll keep you updated on the blog tour!





The World in Half by Cristina Henriquez is another ARC that has hit my pile. This book isn't being released until April. So I have a little time to get this one finished. It is "the story of a young woman reconciling an existence between two cultures and confronting a life of hardship with an endless capacity to learn, love, and forgive. " About a woman finding out who her father really is. Sounds like a wonderful book. Another that I'm really anxious to read.




Finally, a new PI thriller/mystery by Walter Mosley, The Long Fall is due out in March.

I think these should keep me busy for some time to come!!

Congrats on the full haul of Kitty books, btw. Everything I've heard about them sounds impressive. (Or at least fun!)

You will definitely have to let me know about the Kitty books. Anything related to vampires and well, you know...

Serena said...

DesLily said...

wow! keep this up and your TBR pile will look like Chris's! (giggle)

Incidentally, not that I'm Carrie's publicist or anything: but if you haven't read her interview yet (as "Kitty") over at Jackie Kessler's Cat & Muse, it's a good introduction to the series. (Though hard to avoid some spoilers since it's about the latest book.)

And yes, if you page forward one entry from there, you'll find where Jez interviews me as "Jian", too. {g} (But when Jian starts talking toward the end about possible spoilers, END THERE unless you want to see an important spoiler about the end of the novel.)

Hey Jason! Thanks for stopping by. Thanks for the links. I'm one of those people that hate spoilers!! It ruins my reading. So I'll try to stay away until I am done!

Thanks again, for letting me take part in your blog tour!

Kitty is such a good series! I haven't read Kitty Raises Hell yet but I devoured the others in practically one sitting.
