As always, In My Mailbox is brought to you by Kristi, AKA The Story Siren. Seeing what she got in her mailbox is one of the highlights of my week, so go check it out.
I got a few books in the mail this week, so let's get started:
Rough Magic by Caryl Cude Mullin
Release Date: Oct. 1, 2009 from Second Story Press
Follow the interwoven stories of two girls and one woman, their lives all tied to the enigmatic figure of Caliban, the character first introduced by Shakespeare in The Tempest, his famous play of love, loyalty, and magic. Caliban is the strange, half-wild man Prospero and Miranda discovered on an island after being shipwrecked. Rough Magic forms both prequel and sequel, telling the stories of the sorceress Sycorax, Caliban's mother; Miranda's daughter Chiara, who becomes like a daughter to Caliban; and Calypso, a magical young woman with ties to them all. All three must fight against a world that sees magic as evil and uses women as political pawns. Finally, it is the island and its power that draws them all back, demanding amends from the humans who have exploited its natural wonders. A spellbinding story that combines an old-fashioned tale of dragons, shipwrecks, adventure, and sacrifice, with an inspiring message of the earth's power and our environmental responsibility.

Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yay!! I got my copy of Shiver!! I am sooooo completely excited for this one and it's so shiny and new and pretty. I must shout YAY repeatedly.
So, that's it for me this week. Yet another relatively slow week, but that's a-okay, because I am super busy getting ready for my new job and I have a ton of books to read already.
Can't wait to see what everyone else got this week.
