Items received

In the interests of disclosure, here’s a photo of “real” items received in the month of March. This photo doesn’t include ebooks or media passes to see movies because, sadly, THEY’RE INVISIBLE.

items received

This photo shows:

  • All the Tripod goodness because TRIPOD IS AWESOME. I’m thinking this is the perfect Easter Break lineup:
    • Songs from Self Saucing
    • Tripod versus the Dragon (in both CD and DVD format)
    • Tripod tell the tale of Tosswinkle the Pirate
  • Ascendance and Resistance by John Birmingham (books 2 and 3 of a trilogy featuring monsters attacking Earth. And dragons taking down Air Force One)
  • Boy Who Could See Death (The) by Salley Vickers (collection of short stories, universally well-written so far — I’m nearly half-way through)
  • Custard Protocol Book One: Prudence by Gail Carriger (Prudence Akeldama is all grown up; with parents like hers, she’ll bring a dirigible full of trouble! It arrived yesterday and I’m 1/3 of the way through. What homework? Forget the homework.)
  • My Sunshine Away by M O Walsh (a mystery set in Southern suburbia blurbed by Anne Rice)
  • Positive by David Wellington (zombie goodness for CJ)
  • Sin Eater’s Daughter (The) by Melina Salisbury (a gorgeous cover; my phone photo doesn’t do it justice. Billed as romance and intrigue for ages 12 +)
  • Vanishing Girls by Lauren Oliver (I’ve enjoyed every book of Lauren’s that I’ve read but this one might be fore CJ — it’s a psychological thriller. I have sufficient adrenaline coursing through my veins while trying to meet deadlines with full-time study and Dark Matter Zine without a reading book that comes with the instruction to “Read it with all the lights on”, according to E Lockhart)
  • Weightless by Sarah Bannan (Prep meets the Virgin Suicides, according to the publisher)
