Mailbox Monday: December 29

mailbox [Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page. Be sure to check out this week’s post to post your own incoming books and see what other bloggers’ got!]

The inlaws went home yesterday and in the rush to get everything done I forgot to do my MM post! But here’s what I got:

Vampirates by Justin Somper, from Borders. You have NO IDEA how excited I am to read this. Vampires! Pirates! VAMPIRATES. I am hoping it’s actually a decent read, even though it’s COMPLETELY RIDICULOUS. But the ridiculousness makes it AWESOME. Hopefully. Anyway.

Triskellion by Will Peterson, also from Borders. It was on one of the discount shelves, and after reading the summary (which includes the phrase “archaeological adventure”) I decided to go for it.

The Optimist’s/Pessimist’s Handbook by Niall Edworthy and Petra Cramsie, from my brother as a Christmas gift! I always considered myself with be more on the optimist side (though cynical), but according to my mother and stepfather I’m a decided pessimist. Heh.

I’ve also got a big box of books coming from Barnes & Noble sometime this week, hopefully, so that’s make for an exciting MM post.

In other blog news, I wanted to mention that:
a) I know I haven’t posted any book reviews in quite a while, but my reading does tend to slow down during holidays simply because I can’t seem to tear myself away from the computer and actually finish a book. Whoops.
b) I should start posting reviews again sometime after the 5th, as that’s when my vacation’s over. Darn.
c) I’m planning on posting something New Year’s-related in the next few days, plus a review of ebook readers on the iPod Touch. So that’s something.
d) I hope you’re all having a lovely holiday, and that you’re getting more reading done than I am. 😀
