This Week in Books...

Let me apologize in advance for the really long list of books this time around. We were working cattle last weekend and I didn't have a chance to get this post up before we left for the in-laws...but, I got some really great ones I wanted to mention. So, the books I received for the last two weeks...

--The Traitor's Wife by Susan Higginbotham, contest win from Savvy Verse & Wit
--Angel's Advocate by Mary Stanton for a blog tour

--Multiple Blessings: Surviving to Thriving with Twins and Sextuplets by Beth Carson & Kate Gosselin from Paperback Swap
--Just Take My Heart by Mary Higgins Clark from Paperback Swap

--Dragon House by John Shors for review from the author

--Perfection: A Memoir of Betrayal and Renewal by Julie Metz for review

--Handle with Care by Jodi Picoult from Paperback Swap
--Inkdeath by Cornelia Funke from Paperback Swap
--Casting Spells & Just Desserts by Barbara Bretton from the author for a contest win

--Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler for review
--Defending Angels by Mary Stanton from Amazon
--The 8th Confession by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro from Paperback Swap

This week I was very excited to receive Dragon House by John Shors. I've heard great things about Beneath a Marble Sky and after Trish's review of Beside a Burning Sea I can hardly wait. Sorry, I couldn't find cover art for this one yet.

I also couldn't resist posting the cover for Perfection because I think it is stunning.

No need to apologize for a long book list :)

I enjoy personal memoir, so PERFECTION looks great to me. My daughter to ok 20 BOY SUMMER off my desk to read/review before I had a chance to look at it! She's plowing right thru it ...

Dar: I've been reading more Historical Fiction lately and really enjoying it, so I am excited to get started on this one.

Sandy: I am buried in books!

Vasilly: I love memoirs and think it looks really good.

Dawn: Glad to hear your daughter is enjoying 20 Boy Summer! I'm hoping to start on that one this weekend.

I can't wait to hear what you think of Inkdeath, The Traitor's Wife, and Dragon House. Dragon House especially, I really think Shors is a talented writer. Happy Reading!
