In My Mailbox (7)

My apologies for being completely MIA the past two weeks!  Between work events, visiting friends and, well, work in general, life has gotten a bit busier.  However, fear not, the reading has continued, as has the unstoppable book buying (though it has subsided slightly).  I treated myself last weekend to two books I have been drooling over since the first mention of their existence, Michael Moore's new novel SACRE BLEU and the current teen craze GRAVE MERCY by R.L. LaFevers.

If you are a big Christopher Moore fan and will be picking this up in the next few weeks, you should join the online discussion with my book club at Gin & Rhetoric!  We start our discussion May 1st.

I also plan on getting the blog back up to date this week with reviews for THE FUTURE OF US, SOULLESS and CHELSEA CHELSEA BANG BANG!  I also finished the second book in THE TAKER Trilogy, THE RECKONING a few days ago.  For those of you who know the blog at all, you will know that I ADORE this series.  However, since the book won't be released for another few months, the review will have to wait.  But if you get the chance, PICK IT UP!

Hope everyone had fabulous book weeks!  In My Mailbox is hosted over at The Story Siren.

Nice books! Grave Mercy is AWESOME! I loved it and can't wait to get a physical copy. :) I've never read any Christopher Moore ... he's coming to Edmonton at the end of the month and I'm thinking of going -- I'll have to pick up my first book then!

Happy reading! :)

I loved Grave Mercy so much. It was just amazing, seriously! It reminded me alot of Graceling, which is one of my favorites. =) I hope you like it as much as I did!

Enjoy your books!
