In My Mailbox: September 12

In My Mailbox is a meme hosted by Kristi of The Story Siren and was inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie. This meme is about books that you received or bought during the week.
Is everyone gearing up for all the wonderful Book Blogger Appreciation Week festivities starting tomorrow? I know I am. I had so much fun discovering new sites last year that I already anxious for this year to begin!

And so, onto the books! Here we have yet another week of my shameless book acquiring for your viewing pleasure. Seriously, I'm not sure how these books pile up so fast. They seem to multiply faster than tribbles! For review, I got Freefall by Anna Levine - which was really wonderful (review to come soon) - and an ARC of Rich and Mad. The others I snagged at my local second hand bookshop for next to nothing [happy dance]. I'm particularly excited about Elantris as I've never read anything by Brandon Sanderson and this looked like a good place to start.

Thankfully this week I was also able to make it back to the library and found plenty of lovely books to occupy my time. I was most excited about the Dark and Stormy Knights anthology and the fantastic Kate Daniels novella within. I haven't gotten around to reading any of the other short stories as I not really familiar with the other authors, but I'm tempted. Any particular favorites? The other books were ones that caught my eye while browsing - as if I didn't already have enough to tide me over or anything ;) For the past year I've been steadily winding my way through Sharon Shinn's Samaria series and I'm now down to the final installment Angelica. It's a series I've read fairly slowly because I'm enjoying them so much and want to savor every one. I can't recommend them enough!

Wow, you got so many books in one week! I hope you enjoy reading Elantris, that's the first Sanderson that I read and I loved it. I still haven't read both Angelica and Angel-Seeker and I really should read them soon because I love that series. Ooooh yay, you're going to read A Certain Slant of Light. That's a lovely book and I have a feeling you'll like it.
