In My Mailbox (25)

This meme is hosted by The Story Siren.

From Bookmooch I received Piratica: Being a Daring Tale of a Singular Girl's Adventure Upon the High Seas by Tanith Lee. I adore Lee's young adult novels. They're pure fun.

For review I got With a Sword in My Hand byJean-Claude van Rijckeghem (say that ten times fast) and Pat van Beirs (Allen & Unwin, April 2010). It sounds really lovely, and the cover is gorgeous:

Marguerite's father is desperate for a son. Instead he's stuck with a feisty, stubborn, red-headed daughter who refuses to behave like a lady. This exciting medieval romance-adventure story is based on historical fact about a 14-year-old heiress to Flanders called Marguerite Van Male.
I also got books three and four in the Blue Bloods series by Melissa de la Cruz, Revelations and The Van Allen Legacy (Atom April 2010). I must read the first two!

I haven't posted a Very Cool Track for you to listen to in some time. Props go to my new man for introducing me to this song. We're at that cute stage where we're lying around playing each other records and comparing music tastes. Well, he plays vinyl, I play my laptop! This is"Me and the Devil" by Gil Scott-Heron, released just last month. This is one awesome song, and the clip is very Mexican Day of the Dead/vampiric. Paranormal tie-in, score!


  1. It looks like you added a lot of fun books to your piles. :-)

  2. Love love Tanith Lee! And I loved Piratica! I just got another one of her books the other week myself. One of her adult books actually. I have Piratica II but I started it and for some reason put it down (not because I wasn't liking it though). Maybe I need to go revisit....

  3. Showing some love for a fellow Aussie :P We're hard to find but we're out there! haha anyway hope you enjoy your books this week. The Blue Blood books look great! Still on my TBR list sadly.

  4. Interesting books! I have yet to read The Blue Blood books, too, but I have heard good things about them.

  5. I've read the first Blue Bloods book and I wasn't all that impressed, so i'll be interested to see what you think of the series

  6. Looks like you got some great books.
