In My Mailbox #62

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren.

I'm Alison (on the off chance you couldn't guess that from the name of my blog). I review Young Adult novels with a few Middle Grade books and a weekly manga feature.

For Review


Touch of Power by Maria V. Snyder
*Finished this about 20 minutes ago. Loved it! Thanks to Netgalley!



dancergirl by Carol M. Tanzman
*Thanks to Harlequin!


Library Stash


Blood, Bones, and Butter by Gabrielle Hamilton
*I have a weakness for cooking memoirs.



The A Circuit by Catherine Hapka and Georgina Bloomberg
*On the cover, Georgina is listed as first author, but I'm guessing that my order is more appropriate. Still, I think this will be fun, light reading.



Sugar Princess: Skating To Win, Vol. 1 by Hisaya Nakajo
*I don't know what to expect with this, but it looks cute.

  93. I can't get past the cover of A Touch of Power. I know some people thing it's great -- but what is that thing she is holding? It just doesn't appeal to me. Although, I like the UK cover. I guess I just need to concentrate on what's inside -- but that's hard for me!
