In My Mailbox (13)

In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren. To see this weeks list of participants go here.

With Christmas in the mix this is the last two weeks of Mailbox Monday.  Thanks to the great authors, publishers and publicists who sent me these books.

I have to admit to being lazy this week and just taking picture of the books.  Another reason is I like looking at other people's actual pictures of books so I thought I would do the same.  Let me know what you like - stock cover pics or my pics (I'll try to do better ones next week, I was in a hurry this week).

I'll be reviewing One Perfect Word this week, - a great book for the New Year, I received it from the publisher Howard Books.  Lovesick by Spencer Seidel came from Meryl L. Moss Media Relations for tour in February.  The Sound of Red Returning by Sue Duffy and Unhallowed Ground are tour books for Kregel Tours.  Love Blooms in Winter by Lori Copeland is for a FIRST Wild Card Tour and came from Harvest House Publishers.  And finally, behind the beautiful forevers: Life, death and hope in a Mumbai undercity by Katherine Boo was received from the publisher Random House through Shelf Awareness.  It will be released in February.

Everneath and Where It Began were tour books and A Perfect Storm by Lori Foster came from Meryl L. Moss Media Relations for tour in April (I love this series and can't wait for this book.).  What Happened To Hannah by Mary Kay McComas and More Than Words Can Say by Robert Barclay came from William Morrow.  The Jerk Magnet by Melody Carlson came from Revell Books for tour later this month.

The Black book is Strange Flesh by Michael Olson and it's coming from Simon & Schuster in April.  I love that title is black on black raised, which doesn't show up well in the picture.  And what is funny is the spine says: "This is a story about SEX and GAMES."  That should be fun to read around the kids ;)  Actually I can't wait to read it and may bump it up on my pile if I can get ahead.  I received Cobbogoth by Hannah L. Clark and I also received a second autographed copy for a giveaway as well from the author.  Kill Switch by Neal Baer and Jonathan Greene came from the publisher, Kensington and I am excited to read it. Beautiful Disaster was a win from Luxury ReadingArtist of Disappearance by Anita Desai came from the publisher, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, through Shelf Awareness.

I like actual pictures too! It lets people see more of the book, including size and length.

Your Pictures seem fine to me, it's quite hard to photgraph isn't it, you always seem to get a refelction where you don't want it. I also love the cover of Everneath :-)
