What's in your mailbox?

I have to admit, I'm pretty bowled over by the riches that I found in my mailbox this past week. I wouldn't have known where to begin except that on Friday night, I was really angry about something and seeing red. So my reading choice was obvious!

by Christopher Farnsworth
An ARC for review from G.P. Putnam's Sons

Vampires, zombies, politicians! Oh my!  I think this one is going to be BIG!
I read it over the weekend, and rate it 5 fangy stars of fun! It was a great choice for getting my mind off my troubles and provided edge-of-my-seat suspense as well as chuckles. Oh, and btw, the author is a screenwriter, and we all know what that means . . .

The other titles I received are much more serious fare and they all look so good . . .

Thank you to the publishers and publicists for providing these to me for review.

What a great week! I'm currently reading Pale as the Dead by Fiona Mountain, which is her second book, and loving it. I hadn't even heard of Lady of the Butterflies. Enjoy!

I just got a copy of Blood Oath and Girl In Translation so I will be excited to hear what you think of them before I read them!

There are some interesting books there.
How on earth do you find the time to read them all and write reviews?

Oooohh I am SO jealous over Lady of the Butterflies! I've been lusting after that one for a while.

Happy Ready Gwen!
