Mail Call! Joshilyn rules


Since it’s been quiet over here, I’m posting my weekly mail call (a merge of In My Mailbox and Mailbox Monday) here instead of at Rocks ‘n Reads.

I only got one book, but it’s a doozy (when don’t I get a doozy, though? You guys know me. I adore books). My friend drey sent me her ARC copy of Joshilyn Jackson’s newest book, Backseat Saints. Backseat Saints

I haven’t read anything by Ms. Jackson since gods in Alabama, which I thought was a brilliant book. From what I’m hearing of Backseat Saints, this won’t disappoint (neither will the intervening books, but I need to get my hands on them before I can judge properly).

So that’s it. One book. My attempts to tame the TBR mountains continue…

(News of Trevor’s Song in print to come, along with the cover art. In the meantime, you e-book readers should head over to Smashwords and pick up a copy in your preferred format. Half-off this month as part of the Summer Sale!)

    I’ve had my eye on Backseat Saints, too, but I also am attempting to tame the TBR mountains and must abstain. I was a good girl and only got one book this week myself – Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger. Happy reading! =)

    Backseat Saints is on my shelf (giveaway win). I loved Gods in Alabama too so I can’t wait until I have time to read the new book. Have a great week!

    Her book The Girl Who Stopped Swimming is wonderful! If you get a chance, read that one. I think you’ll like it. Have a great week, happy reading and enjoy your new book!

    I’ve got this one on my wishlist. Love her work, but until the publisher drops the Kindle price by a couple of bucks… I’ll wait.

    I already got my Smashwords of Trevor’s Song 🙂

    I want to read this one, too. I haven’t read anything by this author, but I’ve heard a lot of good things about her work.
