In My Mailbox (13)

A slow week for me, but I did get a few great books. Oh and, In My Mailbox is brought to you by Kristi, AKA The Story Siren.

For Review:

Donut Days by Lara Zielin

Emma has a lot going on. Her best friend’s not speaking to her, a boy she’s known all her life is suddenly smokin’ hot and in love with her, and oh yes, her evangelical minister parents may lose their church, especially if her mother keeps giving sermons saying Adam was a hermaphrodite.
But this weekend Emma’s only focused on Crispy Dream, a hot new donut franchise opening in town, where Harley bikers and Frodo wannabes camp out waiting to be the first ones served. Writing the best feature story on the camp for the local paper might just win Emma a scholarship to attend a non- Christian college. But soon enough Emma finds the donut camp isn’t quite the perfect escape from all her troubles at Living Word Redeemer.

In a fresh, funny voice, newcomer Lara Zielin offers up a mesmerizing, fast-paced narrative full of wit and insight.

I'm reading this one right now. And Lara sent me a Dunkin' Donuts coupon with the books, which is awesome. We don't have a Dunkin' Donuts here, but I will be using it on my trip to Naperville for the Supernatural Summer Tour. Three great authors and donuts?! What's not to love. Thanks Lara!!

And from The Book Girl Reviews I won:

Eyes Like Stars by Lisa Mantchev
This is my second copy, so I may give away my first at a later date.
Need by Carrie Jones
I liked this book and reviewed it here.
Ghost Huntress: The Awakening by Marley Gibson
Can't wait to read this one. I've been anxiously awaiting it.

Thanks go out the the awesome Book Girl!!

So, slow mail week overall. I've been expecting some stuff that hasn't arrived. I think the mail is moving slower these days, but oh well, I still have a ton of cool things to read.

By the way, Angels & Demons was actually really good. I liked it much better than the DaVinci Code. And Ewan MacGregor? Woo-wee, that is one total Hottie McHotterson. I would watch him in just about anything and I have watched him in some real stinkers, but he's worth it.

Can't wait to see what you all picked up this week.

P.S. I love watchin' my spell check try to wrap it's head around Hottie McHotterson. I swear spell check just doesn't know what to do with me.
