In My Mailbox (11) by Bunbury in the Stacks
Hi all!  This was a pretty fantastic week for me book-wise, marred only by the reality that I still don’t have my hands on Magic Strikes, which means that having my hands on Magic Bleeds is slightly less exciting than it should be.  Here’s what I picked up (as always, clicky for GoodReads):

For review: 

I Hunt Killers – Barry Lyga: Received as part of an ARC tour hosted by the lovely ladies over at The Midnight Garden.  Already read it, and loved it.  Was gruesomely awesome, and I’ll be posting my review Monday!
The Hero’s Guide to Saving Your Kingdom – Christopher Healy: Digital gally received from Walden Pond Press via Edelweiss.  SO excited for this MG title, I’ve gotten to see a lot of the art popping up around blogs this past week, and it sounds super cute.

Audiobooks (all from library):

Fever Crumb – Philip Reeve: I actually got this one a few weeks ago and forgot to add it to my last IMM.  Already listened to it!  Review to come.
An Abundance of Katherines – John Green: Already finished this one as well!  Loved it, this was my first John Green and audio was the way to go.  Except that it made me laugh while running, which then made me have an asthma attack.  Worth it.
White Cat – Holly Black: Listening to this one now and it’s pretty awesome.  My first full Holly Black novel, and Jesse Eisenberg is a fantastic narrator. 
Red Glove – Holly Black: Liking White Cat so much that I already picked up Red Glove to listen to next.

Library Goodies:

Spell Bound – Rachel Hawkins: The conclusion to the Hex Hall trilogy was my most anticipated read of the year.  I’ll be reading this one asap!
Born Wicked – Jessica Spotswood: I’ve heard all sorts of good things about this historical fantasy, which finally came in for me from hold!
The Fault in Our Stars – John Green: Honestly I’m kind of dreading this one, even though I know I’ll love it.  It’s my book club read for April though, so glad I have something to force the issue!
Must Love Hellhounds – Ilona Andrews (et all): This anthology includes a Kate Daniels short story that takes place between the 3rd and 4th books of the series.
Magic Bleeds – Ilona Andrews: Like I said, I’d be more excited about this one if I’d gotten Magic Strikes as well.  I mean come on library that shall not be named!  They were sitting on the shelf right next to each other.  You really couldn’t send me both?  If I don’t get Magic Strikes in soon, I’ll just have to buy it.  Such is my want for this book.


The Humming Room – Ellen Potter: Ellen and the lovely people over at Feiwel and Friends sent me a finished copy of The Humming Room for participating in the blog tour, and I was so excited!!  I loved this book, and Ellen is wonderful; she was so sweet to personalize it for me, and it meant a lot as this is the first book I’ve had personalized in about 15 years.
The Humming Room signed and personalized by Ellen Potter for Bunbury in the Stacks
That’s it for me!  This past week on the blog I reviewed Jill Hathaway’s debut, Slide, Maggie Stiefvater’s The Scorpio Races, Erin Saldin’s The Girls of No Return, and Megan Whalen Turner’s A Conspiracy of Kings.  Upcoming will be Barry Lyga’s I Hunt Killers, Emily M. Danforth’s debut, The Miseducation of Cameron Post, Meg Rosoff’s There Is No Dog, and I’ll kick off Kate Daniels with the short story A Questionable Client, and the first installment, Magic Bites.

Thanks for stopping by, and let me know what you got in your mailbox this week! <A HREF=””> Widgets</A>
