It's time for another Mailbox Monday, when bookish folk share the books that have been added to their already overflowing shelves over the past week. A big thanks to Marcia from The Printed Page for hosting this weekly meme.
I received only a few review books in the mail this week, and one was a complete surprise. The others I bought using some Amazon gift certificates I've had for a while.
Here's what I received for review:
The Desert Baron by Conrad Crease (from the author).
Baron Friedrich Kress von Kressenstein played a big role in crushing Hitler's Beer Hall Putsch in 1923, so this sounds interesting.
The Sky Rained Heroes by Frederick E. LaCroix (from Merritt Talbott at Phenix & Phenix Literary Publicists)
I couldn't pass up what sounds like another great WWII book!
When You Went Away by Michael Baron (from Joan Schulfafer Publishing & Media Consulting)
This one was a complete surprise. Not sure if it's something I would have chosen on my own, but I'll give it a shot.
Here's what I bought with my Amazon certificates (2 for me and 2 for The Girl):
Bloody Awful by Georgia Evans
I must finish this WWII paranormal trilogy. This is book 2.
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith
Not sure what I'll think of this one, but it sounds like fun. There are some interesting drawings throughout.
The Dinosaur Museum by the National Geographic Society
The Girl was sold the minute she found out there was a pop-up T-Rex. Ever since she first discovered dinosaurs, she's wanted to be a paleontologist. Not sure how long that'll last, but she added this one to her huge collection of dinosaur books.
Dork Diaries: Tales from a Not-So-Fabulous Life by Rachel R. Russell
When The Girl saw that this was similar to the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, she started reading it right away. So far, she loves it. Hopefully, I can get her to write up a review...and then I think I'll read it myself.
