This weekend was pretty awesome for having books come to me in one form or another, and right now my only regret is that there aren't 3 of me so that I can read them all quicker and enjoy them faster!

In the actual mailbox

Second Story Press sent me two books, both of which look very awesome and I can't wait to get started on.

101 Ways to Dance is a book that you normally may not see me review here, as it definitely steps outside the bounds of SFF and instead takes a positive look at the subject of teen lust, but sometimes when you're passionate about a subject, you take a chance and step outside your regular zone and show off your diversity in reading. Rough Magic is a YA fantasy novel based on Shakespeare's The Tempest, which looks like it'll be an awesome read by an author who lives only one province over from me! My roommate's excited to get the chance to read it too.

In my email inbox

Since signing up for NetGalley, I've received e-copies of 5 books that looks awesome. Since I have no problems with e-books, it seems unfair of me not to not promote them a little when I receive them, just because they didn't arrive in a package with the regular mail. So any future "In My Mailbox" entries will feature those ebooks that I got my hands on, too.

I've read two of Mori Kyoko's YA novels in the past (One Bird, and Shizuko's Daughter, though it was long enough ago that I wouldn't mind reading them again), and so when I saw that her memoir, Yarn, Remembering the Way Home was not only available but also featured knitting (I'm a knitter as well as a bookblogger), I couldn't resist asking for a copy from GemmaMedia.

From Houghton Mifflin Harcourt I got a copy of Tyger, Tyger, written by the very woman who directed me to NetGalley in the first place. YA fantasy with Celtic mythology? I'm sold! The second book I requested, Trickster's Girl, another YA novel dealing with magic in a post-apocalyptic world.

And finally, Carina Press sent me e-copies of In Enemy Hands, an awesome-looking sci-fi novel, and Exit Light, which looks like it's received very high ratings and looks like it has a fascinating paranormal storyline that I can't wait to start tearing into!

Plenty of good reading to keep me busy, and I'm expecting an order from Amazon to come next week, too, increasing my collection another little bit further!

This is exactly why I envy the people who have the time and the ability to read hundreds of books in a year. There really are far too many books that I want to read, with more coming out every week!

Happy reading, everybody!
