In My Mailbox #3

Sunday, October 28, 2012

In My Mailbox is weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren. The point is to list the books that you either purchased or received for review during last week.

Fairy Tales from the Brothers Grimm by Philip Pullman
Publication Date: November 8, 2012
Source: NetGalley

Brothers Grimm Fairy Tales was one of my favorite book as a child. I had to read it, when I saw that the retelling is by one of my all-time-favorite authors Philip Pullman. (I adore 'His Dark Materials' series.)
(Amazon | Goodreads)

Pilgrim of the Sky by Natania Barron
Publication Date: December 10, 2011
Source: NetGalley

Never heard about Natania Barron before, but the cover attracted me. The summary sounds interesting, especially this part: "Just when Maddie Angler thinks she's over the death of her longtime boyfriend, Alvin, she discovers that he's not only alive, but he may just be part god."

Lichgates by S. M. Boyce
Publication Date: October 15, 2011
Source: NetGalley

This YA Fantasy sounds very good. Magical Grimoire gives young girl incredible powers and teleports her to "Ourea: a beautiful world full of terrifying things that want the Grimoire's secrets".
( Amazon | Goodreads )


Only three books this week. Am I sick? No. :D Just scared when I look at the list of books already pending for review, so I hesitate before downloading. Actually most of these are old requests from previous week that only now got approved. Yes, I was very very good. I hope my 'good behavior' continues, I need to clear up my to-read list.

What do you think I should read first?
Did you already read something from this pile?
What did you get this week?

Also new design for IMM page! The info is arranged differently and also I added my comments for each book, because it seems that my picks are unknown to most of my visitors.
What do you think?
Is this better or you like the previous one more?

Let me know in comments...

  4. You've got some great sounding picks, though I've only heard of one of the three. Pullman's interpretation of the Grimms should be an interesting read. Hope you enjoy all three books.
