In My Mailbox #2

In My Mailbox, started by The Story Siren, is a way to share all the great books we've received this past week.

I was very excited to get a wonderful delivery of three historical fiction novels:
Anastasia's Secret, by Susanne Dunlap which I have already read and reviewed since it arrived (you can tell I was anxious to read this one!)The Musician's Daughter, also by Susanne Dunlap; and The Twin's Daughter, by Lauren Baratz-Logsted (Pub date: 9/2010).



I also received this week from Amazon Vine an upcoming release for middle-grade readers from Michael Grant, The Magnificent 12: The Call (first in a series). . Watch for my review of this one on Amazon and Goodreads. Gordon Korman calls this book "Welcome to Monty Python meets Lord of the Rings." I haven't finished it, but it's definitely not like Grant's dystopian series for teens (Gone, etc.)

oooo, I hadn't heard of Musician's Daughter. Looks pretty good! The cover is very striking, but kinda has too much of a "posed" look.

Looks like some great books! Happy reading!

I love the cover model for Anatasia's Secret! She is so flawless-- hopefully the novel is equally matched!=)

Enjoy your reads! Aloha=)

Oooh is that the final cover for The Twin's Daughter? I like it much better than the ARC cover I got at BEA.

I love Susanne Dunlap's books, so hope you enjoy them as well!

I was also wondering about the cover art for Twin's Daughter--it's the one that's posted on Amazon so perhaps it's the most recent (I like it better than the ARC cover too!)

I really loved Anastasia's Secret! I'm looking forward to reading her others...

The Magnificent 12 sounds like fun, I'm holding out for that one. :)
