In My Mailbox

In My Mailbox was created by Kristi of The Story Siren.


This week I had quite a big week in the way of books.  Which is awesome but at the same time I had a slow reading week so my reading pile is ever-expanding.


I got one ebook this week and it is:


Dead is Not An Option by Marlene Perez




It’s springtime of senior year, and psychic sleuth Daisy Giordano is preparing to say goodbye to Nightshade High. But no college acceptance letters have arrived yet, and she’s beginning to worry about where she’ll end up come fall—and if it will be anywhere near her boyfriend, Ryan. But that’s not the only uncertainty Daisy’s dealing with. There’s a vamps versus shifters war going on in Nightshade, and things are so tense that there is talk of canceling the prom. The conflict is carrying over to the Giordano home, since Rose and Daisy are both dating werewolves and Poppy’s new boyfriend is a vampire.



Then I got three books in the mail for review and they were:


Diamond Eyes by A.A Bell




Orphaned as a child after the bizarre deaths of her parents, Mira has been tormented by visions of ‘ghosts’ ever since puberty. As a carrier of the Fragile-X gene, her eyes have crystallised more than usual, causing her physical and emotional pain. Diagnosed as blind-sighted and institutionalised in the Serenity Centre -- a sanctuary for handicapped adults -- she can see convicts of the past, yet she cannot see any of her real surroundings or even her own body. After a number of failed escape attempts, Mira has regressed under increasing medication to a near-child-like state; paranoid, terrified and unco-operative. 
Then two medical specialists arrive at Serenity to do a health survey -- while secretly testing new technology that interrogates the human subconscious. The project leader is also selling military secrets, and when he murders one of the bodyguards to cover his crime, Mira is the only witness …


Reunion in Carmel by Tim Comstock




Police officer Will Kempton moves his family to the tourist town of Carmel, Calif., thinking it will be the perfect change of pace after his 14 years as a hardened New Jersey detective. But when a string of gruesome murders rattles the quiet town and comes too near his own family, Kempton must draw on skills he never thought he would need again to track down the killer.


Logic of Demons by H.A. Goodman




LOGIC OF DEMONS The Quest for Nadine's Soul takes you on a journey inside the psyches of men and women forced to deal with the supernatural consequences of their decisions. Through the lives of a demon, two Angels, and a mysterious teenage girl, a plethora of politically and socially relevant issues ranging from the roots of genocide and sex trafficking to child conscription and religious fundamentalism are addressed in this fantasy thriller. Life as well as the afterlife converge in this novel to explain certain peculiarities of the human condition. Whether you are a God fearing individual or an atheist, LOGIC OF DEMONS The Quest for Nadine's Soul addresses moral and theological issues of interest for people of all backgrounds.


And that was my week in books.  Can't wait to see what everyone else got!
