In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by the Story Siren. (Special Mother's Day addition.)
For my mom for Mother's Day: Daughter of Smoke and Bone from her "daughter of flesh and bone." Perfect timing on amazon's part - it arrived in Alaska at my mom's work place Friday. She said she started it that night. Laini Taylor's novel is in my top 5 favorite YA novels.
For me from my library:
I was especially excited about The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey. The author is a friend of a friend from back North. I am in love with this novel (on page 298), though it's somewhat comical reading about cold and snow when I'm sitting outside in the sun.
The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon is both for business and pleasure. It's set in Barcelona, which is where Spellbound #3 (Enchantment) starts out. I'm reading James Michener's chapter on Barcelona in IBERIA, but not the whole book because it's dictionary sized. TMI, dude, TMI.
Oh, @#$%!, I pulled out the book while writing this and noticed it's 3 days late and it's an inter library loan. Crapola.
Happy Mother's Day to all the mom's out there!
