In My Mailbox

Before I get to the books part of this book post... I am announcing that I have officially signed up for NaNoWriMo. Flamingo1325 is my username for those of who want to follow/friend/etc. I am going to write SlackerBoy which I am incredibly excited about... so in theory in just over a month, I will have my third manuscript for 2010 written which is kind of an awesome feeling. On that note, if my blog slacks off some next month, you now know why. My goal is to not let my blog suffer, but I get a little neurotic and hyper focused when I write, especially when I'm barreling through the draft. So... on that note, I bring you my books.

For Review:
Ship Breaker by Paulo Bacigalupi

Freeze Frame by Heidi Ayarbe (Signed)

Rocky Road (Signed)
Zombies vs Unicorns ARC by Holly Black Justine Larbalestier
The Dark is Rising by Susan Cooper

Crossing Over by Anna Kendall
Salvaged by Stefne Miller
