In My Mailbox: 4/19/09



In My Mailbox lets you peek into the contents of my mailbox on a weekly basis. I am listing all the lovely books that I have aquired this week. If you would like to participate and have your own “In My Mailbox” post, you can find more information here on the Story Siren's blog, where it all began..(This post was inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie.)

I got a greeeeeeeeeat book this week, the one I have been waiting on and so far. I am lovingggg it. I also recieved some book markers and magnets from Cyn this week and will use them for a contest in the future.

Fairy Tale by Cyn Balog

A captivating and witty dark fantasy that will have girls lusting after it.

Morgan Sparks has always known that she and her boyfriend, Cam, are made for each other. But when Cam’s cousin Pip comes to stay with the family, Cam seems depressed. Finally Cam confesses to Morgan what’s going on: Cam is a fairy. The night he was born, fairies came down and switched him with a healthy human boy. Nobody expected Cam to live, and nobody expected his biological brother, heir to the fairy throne, to die. But both things happened, and now the fairies want Cam back to take his rightful place as Fairy King.

Even as Cam physically changes, becoming more miserable each day, he and Morgan pledge to fool the fairies and stay together forever. But by the time Cam has to decide once and for all what to do, Morgan’s no longer sure what’s best for everyone, or whether her and Cam’s love can weather an uncertain future.

So, what is in your mailbox this week?

As per Lenore's request I have pictures of the magnets and book markers. I am sorry that they are crappy images, but it was taken with my phone due to the fact the I cannot find my camera...arrrrrrg!!

ooh I really want to read Fairy Tale! I'm about 1/4 way through Taken By Storm but I don't really like it. :( And the author uses "i" instead of "I". It's very annoying to me.

Fairy Tale! Another book I have to get. I just can never remember if it is Fairy Tale or Fairy Lust because of the title change.

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
