In My Mailbox (34)

In My Mailbox is brought to us by The Story Siren and was inspired by Alea.

For review:

I Don't Want to Kill You by Dan Wells - Paperback

John Cleaver has called a demon—literally called it, on the phone, and challenged it to a fight. He’s faced two of the monsters already, barely escaping with his life, and now he’s done running; he’s taking the fight to them. But as he wades through his town’s darkest secrets, searching for any sign of who the demon might be, one thing becomes all too clear: in a game of cat and mouse with a supernatural killer, the human is always the mouse.

In I Am Not a Serial Killer we watched a budding sociopath break every rule he had to save his town from evil. In Mr. Monster we held our breath as he fought madly with himself, struggling to stay in control. Now John Cleaver has mastered his twisted talents and embraced his role as a killer of killers. I Don’t Want to Kill You brings his story to a thundering climax of suspicion, mayhem, and death.

It’s time to punish the guilty.

And in a town full of secrets, everyone is guilty of something.

(Summary from goodreads.)


This is one of those books that I name "mystery books". Not because of anything inside the pages, but because I don't know how I got it. Same as my copy of Mr. Monster. They just show up. I don't email anyone or get emailed... so it's weird. But I appreciate them greatly!!

The Lost Saint by Bree Despain - ARC

A family destroyed. A love threatened. An enemy returns.

Grace Divine made the ultimate sacrifice to cure Daniel Kalbi. She was infected with he werewolf curse while trying to save him, and lost her beloved brother in the process.

Desperate to find Jude, Grace befriends Talbot, a newcomer to town. But as the two grow closer, Grace's relationship with Daniel is put in danger -- in more ways than one.

Unaware of the dark path she is walking, Grace begins to give into the wolf inside of her -- not realizing that an enemy has returned and a deadly trap is about to be sprung.

Bree Despain delivers sizzling romance and thrilling action in the heart-pounding sequel to the The Dark Divine.

(Summary from goodreads.)

I actually got 2 copies of this!! I will be giving one away... soonish. Once I get paid. Alright?

Cows Can't Jump by Dave Reisman - Paperback and boardbook

Is it really true that cows can't jump, gorillas can't swim and sloths can't leap? Yes, but discover what these and other animals can do, as they swing, scamper and glide through Cows Can't Jump! In this humorous and inspirational adventure, animals focus on what they do best, comfortably aware they can t do everything, but proud of their own special skills.

I'll review this one soonish. It's a picture book, so those don't take quite as long to review.

Um... that's everything I got bookwise this week/last while. What'd you get?

Peace and cookies,
Laina
