Books in the mail; or, I'm recovering from the plague and I've no reviews right now...

So, to top everything else off, I've been fighting off a cold for the better part of a month now, which finally took it's final toll and sent me to the doctor. On that note, I can't believe I'm already 7 reviews behind! I don't think I've ever been this far behind before, but I've barely had the energy to read, let alone write about what I've been reading.

But, having said that, I can at least tell you what I've read these last couple of weeks:

Skellig by David Almond
Pibgorn: the Girl in the Coffee Cup by Brooke McEldowney
Pibgorn and the Poltergeist in the Piano by Brooke McEldowney
Pibgorn and the Cantus Borgia by Brooke McEldowney
Grandville by Bryan Talbot
Doctor Grordbort Presents: Victory by Greg Broadmore
Boneshaker by Cherie Priest



I've also received two packages in the mail in the last 2 weeks with sample books from HarperCollins. In these packages I've received:

Little Princes: One Man's Promise to Bring Home the Lost Children of Nepal by Conor Grennan
Sometimes I Feel Like a Nut: Essays and Observations by Jill Kargman
Call Me Irresistible: A Novel by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
A Lonely Death: An Inspector Ian Rutledge Mystery by Charles Todd
To Have and to Kill: A Wedding Cake Mystery by Mark Jane Clark
Family Affair by Debbie Macomber

While these books are probably ones that I wouldn't have picked up on my own, I'm always on the lookout for new authors, and these are all new to me, so I'm pretty excited about reading them all. Thank you, HarperCollins!
