In My Mailbox (36)

So I skipped a week, because things have been a wee bit busy and I've been a wee bit lazy watching all 4 seasons of Criminal Minds. You see, I have this crush on Matthew Gray Gubler and it has taken over my life. Almost done with season 4 though, so crush is abated.

As for my mailbox, first things first, In My Mailbox is brought to you by Kristi, AKA The Story Siren.

For Review:

The Morganville Vampires: Glass Houses and The Dead Girl's Dance by Rachel Caine

Release Date: Available Now from Penguin


The first two novels in the New York Times bestselling Morganville Vampires series together for the first time in a new trade paperback edition.

Morganville is a small college town in the heart of Texas—not a place that exactly screams “hotbed of creatures of the night.” But college freshman Claire Danvers is about to discover why, in Morganville, you should never, ever stay out after dark…

Glass Houses
College freshman Claire Danvers moves off campus and into an old house in the small town of Morganville. Her new roommates have her back when the town’s deepest secrets come crawling out, hungry for fresh blood…

The Dead Girls’ Dance
Claire may have a great roommate and a new boyfriend, but when she’s invited to the Dead Girls’ Dance all hell breaks loose—literally. Because this time, the living and the dead are ready to tear up the night…

I'm looking forward to starting this one. I've heard many, many good things about the series, so I think it's about time I get around to it.

What I Wore to Save the World by Maryrose Wood

Release Date: December 1, 2009 from Berkley Jam


Third in the fabulous series that started with Why I Let My Hair Grow Out

Senior year's coming up fast and Morgan still has no clue about college, or a career-the whole rest of-her-life thing is basically a blank. Maybe it's because she spent her junior year obsessing about Colin, the hot Irish guy she fell for last summer (that was right around the same time she discovered she's a half- goddess from the days of Irish lore... you had to be there). She even saved Colin from a nasty enchantment, but he doesn't know that. Colin doesn't believe in magic, not even a little.

But then a mysterious message reunites her with Colin, who turns out to be caught up in the biggest faery-made disaster ever. We're talking the end of reality-not just reality TV. To save the world, she's going to have to tell Colin the truth about her half-goddess mojo. But if he doesn't believe in magic, how will he ever believe in her?

Haven't read this series either, but I bought the first one yesterday, so I plan to start it sometime soon.
