In My Mailbox (17)

IMM is hosted by Kristi, The Story Siren!

First off, I'm so sorry that my blog has been, for lack of a better word, scatterbrained. It seems that I'll be on a role for a few days, then school and work will get crazy and I get behind, then I'm back on track, and then... I think you get the picture. But I AM still here... and I AM still reading... just having a hard time getting reviews typed up. They are even written! They just haven't made it from my notebook to my laptop! :) Maybe I should just try scanning them and posting them as a picture? And letting everyone muddle through my scrawl? Maybe not... While you're waiting on those reviews, you might as well check out what I've gotten in my mailbox lately, since I haven't been doing IMM the past few weeks. I'll do names this week, with a few pictures, instead of all cover images and plot summaries. It would take waaay too long I think... :) Sorry for the iffy pictures... I can't find my camera cord, so I had to use my webcam!

That's most of them. I know I missed a couple, but that list will suffice, I think! :) AND...

I just have to say that I read RAISED BY WOLVES by Jennifer Lynn Barnes the other day and ... gasp! ... loved it! I'm usually not a very big fan of werewolf books. Weres are just so... hairy. :( But RAISED BY WOLVES may be luring me to the hairy side! If you aren't excited about this book, you totally should be!
