Hello, this is my fourteenth week involved with In My Mailbox, a weekly blogging meme hosted by The Story Siren. The point is to share the books you have acquired over the week.
I haven't updated this in two weeks, and I've received a lot of new books this week. To simplify things, unless otherwise stated these books come from publishers via netgalley who were gracious enough to accept my review request.
Books I bought:
I love Dee Henderson and I finally caved and bought the first two books in her Uncommon Heroes series. I now have all four. I love love Dee Henderson.
The first one in the series are called True Devotion which is about a lifeguard and a SEAL. I'm a lifeguard so I love that the main character is too. The second one in the series is True Valor, which is about a PJ and a pilot. It's a tossup out of the first three for which one I like better.
Books I received from DAC Tours (Lisa and Tara):
The Exceptionals by Erin Cashman. This one looks really good. It has a paranormal vibe and looks really really good. I'm definitely excited to have received this one for review. Thanks Lisa and Tara for sponsoring these tours and for choosing me.
Books I received from Random House Children's Books:
Spirit's Princess by Esther Friesner-- I've loved loved loved all of Esther's books so far, and can't wait to read this one. Historical fiction and great female leads...that's enough for me to be hooked.
Someone Else's Life by Katie Dale-- I've had my eye on this one for quite some time. It looks really good and I can't wait to start reading it. Plus, I really love both versions of this cover.
Books I received from Bloomsbury Children's Books:
Shooting Stars by Alison Rushby--I've had my eye on this one for forever and it finally comes out tomorrow. But luckily Netgalley gave it to me a week ago. I'm really excited about this one.
Books I received from Thomas Nelson (Publishing Group, not a person):
First Date by Krista McGee--I thought this one sounded intriguing. Looks like there is a slight Christian reference, it's ya and it's about a reality tv show. Sounds good to me.
Blue Moon Promise by Colleen Coble--This one also looks good. It's a bout a woman who enters into a proxy marriage to provide for her brother and sister. And of course it's also Christian fiction with historical romance thrown in.
There You'll Find Me by Jenny B. Jones-- This one sounds really good. It's about a girl who's following her dead brother's journal to Ireland. Plus there appears to be a romance angle with a Hollywood star. This also has a religious undercurrent.
Books I received from Barbour Publishing, Inc:
Lily by Diane Ashley and Aaron McCarver-- This one is another historical Christian romance. It's about a girl on a cruise down the Mississippi and vaguely references sirens in the synopsis, so I'm in.
It's about a journalist named Dani. I'm a journalist, and people who know me usually call me Dani. That right there was enough to catch my attention. Plus it's about a journal from the Roaring Twenties. I'm so in.
Addison Blakely: Confessions of a PK by Betsy St. Amant-- This is about a Preacher's Kid who finds herself questioning her face when bad boy Wes Keegan comes riding into town and into her heart. This seems to have a Footloose type vibe on the surface so I'm intrigued to say the least.
Books I received from B & H Publishing Group:
The Forgiven Duke Jamie Carie-- This one is a historical Christian fiction book about a girl who is promised to Lord John Lemon. She flees to Iceland in search of her parents and gets into all sorts of mischief. Sounds right up my alley.
Books I received from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishers:
Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers-- It's about the Gold Rush and a girl who as a child was forced into prostitution. Now she expects nothing but trouble from men. It's about a girl's journey to healing. Sounds emotional but interesting.
