In My Mailbox - February 28, 2010

In My Mailbox is a meme hosted by The Story Siren

My goodies this week:

Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready

First in a young adult urban fantasy series about a world of ghosts only the young can see.

When Aura’s boyfriend meets a most untimely end, she is forced to reconsider her relationship with the living and the dead.

(I'm so super excited to have gotten this! I've had it on my YA Debut Author Challenge list since day one...squeeee)

The Percy Jackson and the Olympians: Ultimate Guide by Mary-Jane Knight

It's the handbook no half-blood should be without: a fully illustrated, in-depth guide to gods, monsters, and all things Percy. This novelty companion to the best-selling series comes complete with trading cards, full-color diagrams, and maps, all packaged in a handy, "manual-size" POB with a crisp, magnetic flap enclosure.

(My son & I saw the movie last weekend & we loved it :) I know my son is going to love this series soon - he's on chapter books now - and I am a huge mythology fan.)
