In My Mailbox 1/23

Sunday, January 23, 2011

In My Mailbox is an amazing weekly meme hosted by Kristi from The Story Siren that features the books we have received during the week. It's so much fun because we get to see what our fellow bloggers stumbled upon this week and add even more to our piles of books! Without further ado, this week I received the following books:

FOR REVIEW:

Red Moon Rising by Peter Moore (ARC) - (Thank you, Hyperion)


Being only half-vamp in a high school like Carpathia Night makes you awhole loser. But Danny Gray manages to escape the worst of the specists at his school. Thanks to genetic treatments he had as an infant, most people assume Danny's other half is human. Which is a good thing.    




BOUGHT:



Jessica thinks her life is over when she loses a leg in a car accident. She's not comforted by the news that she'll be able to walk with the help of a prosthetic leg. Who cares about walking when you live to run?As she struggles to cope with crutches and a first cyborg-like prosthetic, Jessica feels oddly both in the spotlight and invisible. 





Sorry there's no IMM Vlog this week, guys! I have work this morning, and I didn't have time to record a video last night. Plus, I figured two books was ok as a regular post. Either way, leave me a link to your mailboxes, and I'll be sure to check them out!

  1. Red Moon Rising looks really interesting, I think I'll wait for your review though before I'll tackle it. Bummer on the no Vlog, I love listening to your accent (in a completely non-creepy way that is:) Hope work goes well!

  28. Red Moon Rising sounds great.

    I've never heard of a Running Dream, but it reminds me of when I used to run cross-country in my sophomore year and suffered under a *crazy* running coach. We used to all joke that if one of us runners got hit by a car running the wrong way up the highway and lost a leg, our coach would insist that we crawl our way to the finish line in the next regional race. ...Good times (sorta). :) I hope you enjoy both these books!
