In My Mailbox (38)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren. The books you share do not have to be ones you actually received in the mail. They can be ones you bought at the book store, checked out at the library, or downloaded to your e-reader. The idea is just to share what's on your TBR pile for the upcoming week.

This was a much more prolific book week for me than last week!

From Netgalley:
Ashes by Ilsa J. Bick
Cook Like a Rock Star: 125 Recipes, Lessons, and Culinary Secrets by Anne Burrell, with Suzanne Lenzer


Shiver, Linger, and Forever by Maggie Stiefvater
Maggie is coming to the Borders in Novi, MI on July 18th and I wanted to get all three books in hardcover for her to sign. I can't wait!
Bad Taste in Boys by Carrie Harris
While perusing Nicola's Books yesterday, a wonderful little independent book store in Ann Arbor, I came across their author visit schedule and noticed that Carrie Harris's book launch party for Bad Taste in Boys will be July 23rd. I'm not sure I'll be able to make it since I might have something else going on that day, but I purchased a copy and will be attending if possible. I didn't even realize that Carrie Harris was from Michigan until yesterday. See how much I know.

Faithful by Janet Fox

Nook purchase:
The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place: The Mysterious Howling by Maryrose Wood
This e-book is only $1.99 for the month of July. Snag it while you can!
