In My Mailbox...

Original Cover
New Cover
I had some interesting finds in my mailbox this week. I requested an ARC of Wolfsbane, the second book in the Nightshade trilogy. It released in August and I never received it. Imagine my surprise when I found it in my mailbox this week! I'm especially happy because the publisher sent the one with the original cover. I am quite fond of the original covers of this series. It's been changed, now and I just don't find the new covers as intriguing. The story is awesome and I can't wait to read book two!                                                                      

I was also surprised to get Hunted, the new book by Cheryl Rainsfield. I interviewed her last year (see 3/31/10 post) when her contemporary YA, SCARS released. It's inspired by her own struggles with sexual abuse and became an award-winning novel. I can't wait to see how she's going to handle the paranormal in this one!

Carry the One is getting some interesting buzz. A young girl is killed and it affects the lives of a number of people for years to come.

And finally, I received my own copies of The Woman in Black and The Killer of Little Shepherds. I just concluded my biggest giveaway this past week and had 10 winners, for these two books. The Woman in Black will be a movie starring Daniel Radcliffe. It releases February 2012 and I'm telling you, it looks seriously scary! Again, I thank Random House for their generosity.

That's it for me. What good books did you get or read this past week?


  1. Great IMM this week! I have Nightshade & Wolfsbane sitting on my shelf calling me know...I'll be happy to see what you think of the 2nd in the series. PS I agree that the original covers are better!!

    Thanks for visiting My IMM!

  5. The original cover for Wolfsbane is much better - I love her eyes - and that's an awesome surprise. I've yet to start the series (on my tittering 'to be read' pile). Happy reading!

    & thanks for visiting :) YA's the Word

  6. Wolfsbane is gorgeous! I'm not sure which cover I like better. Thanks for stopping by my IMM!

  7. Thanks so much for checking out my mailbox! Yay for getting your ARC of Wolfsbane finally and it has the pretty original cover as well (I'm still sad that they changed them)! I hope that you enjoy all of your books :)

  9. I like the original cover of Wolfsbane better too. It definitely draws me in, unlike the new cover.

    I found you via the IMM linky. I’m a new follower :)

  10. I'm a little POed at the Nightshade books. The cover swap, the lack of Ren in Wolfsbane, too much negative stuff. I don't know if I'm gonna go on with the series. But you're lucky because you have THE ORIGINAL COVER. One of the most beautiful ones.

    ENJOY. Happy reading, June!
