In My Mailbox (8)





In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely Kristi over at The Story Siren, where we get to share about the books that we've gotten recently, whether it's in the mail, from the bookstore or the library!

<--- Of Poseidon by Anna Banks!

I was incredibly happy to receive an awesome ARC in the mail this week for a book that won't be released until May 22 of next year- it's called Of Poseidon, and it's by a new author named Anna Banks. Anna was nice enough to provide me with an early review copy, and I absolutely cannot wait to read it! And ummm... how GORGEOUS is that cover?!?!

Thanks Anna! :)

Also, as you know, I get A LOT of my review books from the library-- I'm a librarian, and I love to support my local libraries :) So, here is what I borrowed this week-- click on the covers to see more info from Goodreads!









And finally, I also received some review books through NetGalley, which I just started using and am so glad that I did, because they have some great new and upcoming books there to read-- here is what I got!

  9. Wow. Your library is so much better than mine. Can I ask, how long does it take for the library to buy a book and prepare it for borrowing?? Because when my library has new books coming the status of the book on the catalogue goes from 'on order' to 'processing set: (insert date)' and then the book becomes available about 2-3 months later...
