Mail Call!


Since there’s now two weekly book memes: In my Mailbox and Mailbox Monday, it seems that just calling for a mail call is in order.

The past few weeks (since my last check-in, in fact), I’ve gotten a few books. Not many, and I forgot to blog about them.

However, I’m fixing that! Mary at BookHounds was kind enough to send me her copy of Nerd Girl Rocks Paradise City: A True Story of Faking It in Hair Metal LA.

Nerd Girl Rocks Paradise City

I’m not much of a memoir fan. You guys know I’m almost entirely about fiction. But given the subject matter, resistance is futile.

Anyone else get good books?

And for the record, Trevor wanted me to let you know he’s busy reading the back of a box of Frooty Pebbles. I guess you gotta start somewhere…

    I’m not into memoirs either, but this does sound good. Basically, I’m all about fiction 🙂

    Just one book for me and it doesn’t have as fun a cover as the one you got.

    I’m not much for memoirs either – but now I’ll want to know what you think of it 🙂

    It’s not as good as it looks – she doesn’t really mingle with anyone all that famous or interesting. She runs into Glenn Danzig at the market. Knows GWAR back where she’s from in VA. I lived and worked in punk rock/hard rock L.A. as a journalist during that period of time (I was senior editor for RIP magazine) and I never even recall meeting her. If she had had anything worth writing about, I would have at least known of her.

    That said, she does have other books (not about her aborted rock ‘n’ roll biz career) which I hear are better.

    Sounds like a good one, even if it is a memoir.
