In My Mailbox (2/15/09)

In My Mailbox lets you peek into the contents of my mailbox on a weekly basis. I am listing all the lovely books that I have aquired this week. If you would like to participate and have your own “In My Mailbox” post, you can find more information here on the Story Siren's blog, where it all began.

I had a good week and I wish to share with you my good fortune.

Destroy All Cars by Blake Nelson (ARC)
Pub. Date: 05/01/2009

James Hoff likes to rant against America's consumerist culture. He also likes to rant against his ex-girlfriend, Sadie, who he feels isn't doing enough to change the world. But just like he can't avoid buying things, he also can't avoid Sadie for long. This is a fantastic, funny, sexy, cool masterpiece from one of the best YA writers at work today, an anti-consumerist love story that's all about idealism, in both James's relationship with the world and his relationships with the people around him.

For anyone that is interested I am giving away this ARC in a contest here

Once Dead, Twice Shy By Kim Harrison
Pub. Date: 05/26/2009

Madison's prom was killer - literally. For some reason she's been targeted by a dark reaper - yeah, that kind of reaper - intent on getting rid of her body and soul. But Madison realizes she has to take control of her own fate once and for all, before IT takes control of HER. Well, if she believed in that stuff.




The Prophecy of Sisters by Michelle Zink
Pub. Date: 08/01/2009

Sixteen year-old Lia Milthorpe and her twin sister Alice have just become orphans and, as Lia discovers, they have also become enemies. The twins are part of an ancient prophecy that has turned generations of sisters against each other. To escape from a dark fate and to remain in the arms of her beloved boyfriend James, Lia must end the prophecy before her sister does. Only then will she understand the mysterious circumstances of her parents' deaths, the true meaning of the strange mark branded on her wrist, and the lengths to which her sister will go to defeat her.

Eternal by Cynthia Leitich Smith
Out in stores NOW!!

At last, Miranda is the life of the party: all she had to do was die. Elevated and adopted by none other than the reigning King of the Mantle of Dracul, Miranda goes from high-school theater wannabe to glamorous royal fiend overnight. Meanwhile, her reckless and adoring guardian angel, Zachary, demoted to human guise as the princess’s personal assistant, has his work cut out for him trying to save his girl’s soul and plan the Master’s fast-approaching Death Day gala. In alternating points of view, Miranda and Zachary navigate a cut-throat eternal aristocracy as they play out a dangerous and darkly hilarious love story for the ages.

Ten Cents a Dance by Christine Fletcher
Out in Stores

With her mother ill, it’s up to fifteen-year-old Ruby Jacinski to support her family. But in the 1940s, the only opportunities open to a Polish-American girl from Chicago’s poor Yards is a job in one of the meat packing plants. Through a chance meeting with a local tough, Ruby lands a job as a taxi dancer and soon becomes an expert in the art of “fishing”: working her patrons for meals, cash, clothes, even jewelry. Drawn ever deeper into the world of dance halls, jazz, and the mob, Ruby gradually realizes that the only one who can save her is herself. A mesmerizing look into a little known world and era.

  7. AHHH. Once Dead, Twice Shy! It looks so GOOD! So does Ten Cents a Dance -- I've seen a lot of good reviews for it, so I guess it's time to see if my library has it, haha.

    hope.

  8. Nice week for mail! :) I just read Ten Cents a Dance and really enjoyed it.

    Thanks for commenting on my Shadow Kiss post. I think a book discussion for Blood Promise is a great idea! I've been chatting everyone's ear off about my predictions for Blood Promise so it'll be fun to discuss everything that happens. Let's stay in touch about it! :)

  9. Em...sounds like a plan. I have met Richelle on several occasions and she is such a doll. I was hoping to see her this year and ask her why..why..why? I am pretty sure she has something amazing to bring everything full circle but in the meantime I am dying inside.

    Hope/Shalonda/Blu...I have read many reviews and had to get 10cents, but it was such on ordeal, none of my regular book stores carried it. I had to have it special ordered, just like Dust of 100 Dogs.

    Carrie...I read the prequel to this story in Prom Nights From Hell and always wanted to read more from this world. I am eager to see if it continues from where the prequel ended or if is does a recap? I will have to put it in my review :)

  10. Wow. One of your ARCs don't even com out until August! I love just getting one book in the mail, you must be constantly giddy. :)

Em...sounds like a plan. I have met Richelle on several occasions and she is such a doll. I was hoping to see her this year and ask her why..why..why? I am pretty sure she has something amazing to bring everything full circle but in the meantime I am dying inside.

Hope/Shalonda/Blu...I have read many reviews and had to get 10cents, but it was such on ordeal, none of my regular book stores carried it. I had to have it special ordered, just like Dust of 100 Dogs.

Carrie...I read the prequel to this story in Prom Nights From Hell and always wanted to read more from this world. I am eager to see if it continues from where the prequel ended or if is does a recap? I will have to put it in my review :)

  7. AHHH. Once Dead, Twice Shy! It looks so GOOD! So does Ten Cents a Dance -- I've seen a lot of good reviews for it, so I guess it's time to see if my library has it, haha.

  8. Nice week for mail! :) I just read Ten Cents a Dance and really enjoyed it.

    Thanks for commenting on my Shadow Kiss post. I think a book discussion for Blood Promise is a great idea! I've been chatting everyone's ear off about my predictions for Blood Promise so it'll be fun to discuss everything that happens. Let's stay in touch about it! :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”

Nora Ephron, I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman
