In My Mailbox Week 3


In My Mailbox is weekly meme hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren.  The idea is to share books you've acquired during the week, whether you've won them, bought them, picked them up at the library, received them for review, whatever.  It's a great way to bring attention to books and authors and share the love!  Since I hardly ever buy books anymore because I can't afford to (*sobs*), I get most of my books from the library.

I don't have much this week because I've still got a few other library books, my review books are piling up, and I've been working hard on my own manuscript. I probably shouldn't have gotten any new library books, but I have OCD when it comes to the library.
 
Library books:
 Rules of the Road by Joan Bauer {Amazon  ||  GoodReads}
Vampire Kisses by Ellen Schreiber {Amazon  ||  GoodReads}

Books received for review:
 Flame of Surrender by Rhiannon Paille {GoodReads  ||  Rhiannon's Website ||  Rhiannon's Blog}
 
Rhiannon's book is due out November 1st, 2011

Synopsis:
The boy who follows death meets the girl who could cause the apocalypse.

Krishani thinks he’s doomed until he meets Kaliel, the one girl on the island of Avristar who isn’t afraid of him. She’s unlike the other girls, she swims with merfolk, talks to trees and blooms flowers with her touch. What he doesn’t know is that she’s a flame, one of nine individually hand crafted weapons, hidden in the body of a seemingly harmless girl.

Nobody has fallen in love with a flame until now. She becomes Krishani’s refuge from the dreams of death and the weather abilities he can’t control. Striking down thousand year old trees with lightning isn’t something he tries to do, it just happens. When the Ferryman dies, Krishani knows that he’s the next and that a lifetime of following death is his destiny.

And Kaliel can’t come with him. The Valtanyana are hunting the flames, the safest place for her is Avristar. Krishani can’t bear to leave her, and one innocent mistake grants the Valtanyana access to their mystical island. They’re coming for Kaliel, and they won’t stop until every last living creature on Avristar is dead. She has to choose, hide, face them, or awaken the flame and potentially destroy herself.

What books did you buy, borrow, win or receive this week?
