In My Mailbox (14/01/2012)

Torna In My Mailbox, rubrica ideata da Kristi di The Story Siren per farvi sapere quali libri abbiamo comprato/scambiato/ricevuto in regalo durante la settimana.

Questa settimana è tutta piena di libri in lingua (mi sto convertendo, spero di riuscire a leggerli xD)
Partiamo con un regalo dal mio boyfriend, sempre tenero *o*

Titolo: Die for me
Autore: Amy Plum
Editore: Atom
Pagine: 352
Prezzo: 9,70€
Trama: My life had always been blissfully, wonderfully normal. But it only took one moment to change everything.
Suddenly, my sister, Georgia, and I were orphans. We put our lives into storage and moved to Paris to live with my grandparents. And I knew my shattered heart, my shattered life, would never feel normal again. Then I met Vincent.
Mysterious, sexy, and unnervingly charming, Vincent Delacroix appeared out of nowhere and swept me off my feet. Just like that, I was in danger of losing my heart all over again. But I was ready to let it happen.
Of course, nothing is ever that easy. Because Vincent is no normal human. He has a terrifying destiny, one that puts his life at risk every day. He also has enemies . . . immortal, murderous enemies who are determined to destroy him and all of his kind.
While I'm fighting to piece together the remnants of my life, can I risk putting my heart—as well as my life and my family's—in jeopardy for a chance at love?

Poi una serie di e-book che ho vinto in vari blog stranieri ^^
Ringrazio Sue di Cookies book club e l'autrice Deborah J. Ross per avermi mandato:

Titolo: Northlight
Autore: Deborah J. Ross
Editore: Book View Cafe
Pagine: 520
Prezzo: 3,90€
Trama: She's a Ranger, a wild and savvy knife-fighter, determined to get help in finding her partner who's lost on the treacherous northern border. He's a scholar who sees visions, eager to escape the confines of city life and the shadow of his charismatic mother. With the assassination of a beloved leader and the city in turmoil, the two have only each other to turn to. What begins as a rescue mission turns deadly as together they unravel the secret that lies beneath Laurea's idyllic surface.

Ringrazio Anita Bartholomew per avermi mandato il suo libro (l'ho vinto ma non mi ricordo dove ^^'')

Titolo: The Midgtet's House
Autore: Anita Bartholomew
Editore: Bartholomew & Co, Inc.
Pagine: 290
Prezzo: 2,99€
Trama: The Midget's House is a tale of two women (one alive, and the other long dead), each mourning lost love and struggling for control of the one place that feels like home. Marisa Delano is thrilled when she unexpectedly inherits the fairy tale-like cottage on the bay--until she learns that Lucinda Lacey, a sideshow midget who died on the property in 1924, still inhabits it. As Marisa searches for answers about the unwelcome presence in her new home, all the clues lead to one conclusion: on the day Lucinda died, she murdered her lover, circus owner Cyrus Parker. Alternating between Lucinda's and Marisa's perspectives, The Midget's House takes readers from the carnivals, circuses, and freak shows of the early twentieth century, to the boom-and-bust of today's Florida. Haunting in every sense of the word, this genre-blending tale will stay with you long after you turn the last page.

Ringrazio poi Jodie di Uniquely moi books e l'autore Gary Taaffe per avermi mandato:

Titolo: Four small stones
Autore: Gary Taaffe
Editore: Bunya Publishing
Pagine: 40
Prezzo: 0,89€
Trama: Growing up, finding girls and saving the Dreamtime will have to wait; Billy has other problems to deal with at the moment. Could a kangaroo foil his brother’s attempts to turn him into a galah? Well, not alone it couldn’t, but add a blanket of bats, a mouthful of maggots and a crystal cave to the mix, and he just might stand a chance. Four Small Stones, a game only a bunch of bored brothers from the bush could dream up. Jaw dropping. Sickening. Hilarious. Don’t miss it. And NEVER, EVER, eat one of Billy’s biscuits.

Titolo: Tribal Scarring
Autore: Gary Taaffe
Editore: Bunya Publishing
Pagine: 37
Prezzo: 0,89€
Trama: Time to unleash the warrior within. The spirit of Billy’s mum wants him to go walkabout through the whitefella culture to find some girls and a future for his clan. He doesn’t want to go. She can’t be ignored. Now he’s faced with the fight of his life against wildlife and a torturous initiation. Will he go as a man or a boy? What gifts does his brothers come up with to send him on his way?

Sto cominciando a prendere in considerazione l'idea di farmi regalare un e-reader per la laurea xD
