In My Mailbox and Mailbox Monday - 12/27

IMM is a meme started at The Story Siren with some inspiration from Alea of Pop Culture Junkie.

Anyone can participate in IMM and you are not limited to only sharing books that arrive via your mailbox. You can also share books that you've bought or books that you've gotten at the library.

Mailbox Monday can be found at: The Printed Page

Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week (checked out library books don’t count, eBooks & audio books do). Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists. 

I wanted to do another VLog this week but I have a horrible cold and probably couldn't get through it without coughing. So back to the old way for this week.

Dreadnought by Cherie Priest

The Last Apprentice: A Coven of Witches by Joseph Delaney

  1. Here's what I read in the last full week of 2010. This has been the year of the picture book for my blog.

  2. Great mailbox! The Delaney and Stroud books caught my eye! Thanks for linking up to Mailbox Monday! Happy reading!

  3. The books are all new to me. I like the look of The Traitor's Wife!

  4. I bought The Traitor's Wife a while ago and then I saw it was a Kindle freebie. That reminded me to read the paper book :-) Hope we both enjoy it!!

  5. What a great mailbox! I have the Cherie Priest series as alternates or additions for the Get Steampunked Challenge for 2011 - gives me an additional incentive to get off my tail and buy them! Enjoy them all!
