In My Mailbox: November 15, 2009

It was a party in my mailbox this week.

I won first place in the The Completely Out-of-Control, Over-the-Top Book Giveaway put on by Chris from! I was the first to be able to choose five books from her list and they came this week!

Bitten (Women of the Otherworld)
Minion (Vampire Huntress Legend, Book 1) by L.A. Banks
Through a Crimson Veil (Crimson City) by Patti O'Shea
The Iron Hunt (Hunter Kiss, Book 1) by Marjorie M. Liu
Rogue (Werecats, Book 2) by Rachel Vincent

I also received my copy of Cheating, Death by Teel McClanahan that I won as a First Reader on Goodreads. Here is a bit about the book:

When the walking dead fill the streets, who can cheat death? Who can survive? Featuring a zombie outbreak that devastates Denver, an indecisive adulterer, and a series of violent, disturbing, and perhaps even heart-rending events of the sort you'd expect when the dead rise up to eat the living, Cheating, Death is a roller-coaster ride through a horror show both of death and of the heart.

I also won a copy of the ebook The Dancing Dead by Grace Mahoney from Nicole Hadaway's FreE-Book Friday on her blog at She does this every week so be sure to stop by.

I received a cool book from Paperback Swap. It's a trade paperback of:

Happy Hour at Casa Dracula by Marta Acosta

Finally, I won the anthology Fantasy with stories from Christine Feehan, Sabrina Jefferies, Emma Holly and Elda Minger and it arrived this week. I participated in VampChix Halloween Vamp Bash in October, which as a blast!

I have my reading cut out for me this week, plus I finished a couple great books that I need to review this week.
