In My Mailbox (4)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted at The Story  The idea behind IMN is to put new books on a blog's radar and encourage blogger interaction by sharing what books we receive and/or buy each week.

First of all, I want to declare my love for NetGalley.  I recently finished Tyger Tyger (enter my giveaway) and this week I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa, third book in The Iron Fey series!

My name is Meaghan Chase.

I thought it was over.That my time with the fey, the impossible choices I had to make, the sacrifices of those I loved, was behind me. But a storm is approaching, an army of Iron fey that will drag me back, kicking and screaming. Drag me away from the banished prince who's sworn to stay by my side. Drag me into the core of a conflict so powerful, I'm not sure anyone can survive it.

This time, there will be no turning back.

Yay, I am so excited to read this!

I also made a very hasty trip to the library for a quick fix. (I've been sick this week, so I'm doing a lot of lying in bed and reading.) 

I picked up...
White is for Magic by Laurie Faria Stolarz

The Blue is For Nightmares series (of which this book is the second, I've read them completely out of order) somehow manage to be completely addictive despite their repetitiveness. I hate the synopsis, so...basically, the series is about a teenage hereditary witch named Stacy who has nightmares and visions of the murders of her friends and people she knows.  She always has to solve the mystery of how the nightmares relate to the killer and their victim and, in the end, rescue the victim at the last minute.  In White is For Magic, it seems that Stacy herself is the prey.  Huh, the cover of the edition I have is so much more beautiful, but I can't seem to find a picture of it. 

And finally, I'm really excited about:

Geektastic: Stories from the Nerd Herd, edited by Holly Black and Cecil Castellucci

Yes, I am a geek.  I'm a very proud, Quiz Bowl-ing, Harry Potter fangirl-ing, Buffy quoting, library haunting, Heroes-watching geek.  This book has short stories by a lot of my favorite authors: Scott Westerfeld, Garth Nix, Libba Bray, Kelly Link, Cassandra Clare, John Green, and of course, Holly Black.  Actually, a lot of the same authors who wrote stories for Zombies vs Unicorns.  Any story with the title: "Quiz Bowl Antichrist" is good in my book. :) 

So, what's in your mailbox this week?
