In My Mailbox #15

The idea of In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren and is to bring books to the attention of our blog readers and to encourage interaction with other blogs.

  E-ARCs 

Deadly by Julie Chibbaro
Invincible Summer by Hannah Moskowitz
Stay by Deb Caletti 

* Thanks to  Simon&Schuster and their Galley Grab programme I got Deadly, Invincible Summer and Stay


For Review 

Random Magic by Sasha Soren 

When absent-minded Professor Random misplaces the main character from Alice in Wonderland, young Henry Witherspoon must book-jump to fetch Alice before chaos theory kicks in and the world vanishes. Along the way he meets Winnie Flapjack, a wit-cracking doodle witch with nothing to her name but a magic feather and a plan. Such as it is. Henry and Winnie brave the Dark Queen, whatwolves, pirates, Struths, and fluttersmoths, Priscilla and Charybdis, obnoxiously cheerful vampires, Baron Samedi, a nine-dimensional cat, and one perpetually inebriated Muse to rescue Alice and save the world by tea time.

* Thanks to Sasha Soren for sending me a lovely package filled with book love, sweets, swag and this novel!

  3. Somehow the girl on the cover of Random Magic looks like a freaky Nicole Kidman to me.

  5. I'm with Celine there. I don't like the 'Nicole Kidman' lookalike on the cover. If they change the cover on this I will read it as it actually sounds really good :-)

    I haven't heard of any of the books you got from Grab Galley. I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts on those.

    Angelfire - you asked when I thought? Well I have about 50 pages left to go too and I'm struggling a little. It's not the greatest IMO. I feel sad saying that as so many other bloggers have loved it :-(
