In My Mailbox (week 27)

From the library:

Changeless by Gail Carriger

Alexia Tarabotti, now Lady Maccon, awakens in the wee hours of the mid-afternoon to find her husband, who should be decently asleep like any normal werewolf, yelling at the top of his lungs. Then he disappears -- leaving her to deal with a regiment of supernatural soldiers encamped on her doorstep, a plethora of exorcised ghosts, and an angry Queen Victoria.

But Alexia is armed with her trusty parasol, the latest fashions, and an arsenal of biting civility. Even when her investigations take her into the backwaters of ugly waistcoats, Scotland, she is prepared: upending werewolf pack dynamics as only a soulless can.

She might even find time to track down her wayward husband, if she feels like it.

Just one book this week, but one I'm excited to read!

Now I'm off to watch the World Cup final - may the best team win!

I have Changeless!

Here is my IMM! Plus, I have a new meme that I'm trying to start: When I'm Not Reading. Hope you can check it out. Enjoy your books!

Sorry I haven't visited your blog in such a long time! I've been sort-of taking a blogging break, but now I'm back and hopefully for good! Anyhow, only one book, but super great!
I've really been dying to start this series!

Hope you were happier with the world cup results than I was.

That looks like a fun book!

I just found out about The Book Depository, thanks to a couple of international commenters. So, now my Anna and the French Kiss/Paranormalcy contest is open internationally (as long as The Book Depository ships to your country - their list is impressive).
