In My Mailbox was started by Kristi of The Story Siren and inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie. Sadly the only books I order are those that are hard to find. The following books are from the library and bookstores.
Title: For the Love of Venice1
Publication Date: 1998
Synopsis: "Romance and political action set against the mystery and beauty of modern-day Venice, Italy. Percy is reluctant to accompany his family to Venice for the summer until he meets Graziella, a beautiful and passionate girl who leads him into another Venice, one that tourists never see."
Publication Date: 2000
Series: The Merlin Trilogy (book 1)
Publication Date: 1970
Synopsis: "Born the bastard son of a Welsh princess, Myridden Emrys — or as he would later be known, Merlin — leads a perilous childhood, haunted by portents and visions. But destiny has great plans for this no-man's-son, taking him from prophesying before the High King Vortigern to the crowning of Uther Pendragon . . . and the conception of Arthur — king for once and always."
The only books I got this week were ones that I checked out from the library. Two of which I have already read before (Nightmare and For the Love of Venice). I also got Feeling Sorry for Celia, which is the first book written by Jaclyn Moriarty. At the prompting of my friend Holland I decided to give a Mary Stewart book a try and came away with the first book in the Merlin series.
Non book wise: I would like to thank Katie of Katie's Book Blog who I won a pair of reading glasses5 from. I also got my Minion Bling6 in the mail from Heather Brewer.
I believe that is all for me this week in books. Cannot wait to see what everyone else got. :)
