AKA In My Mailbox

This week I received two crime novels, Tideline by Penny Hancock from Simon & Schuster and The Dark Valley by Valerio Varesi from Quercus. Just my luck, I gave the first Varesi book to a lovely guest reviewer but I'm sure I can work out what's going on. I've got quite used to reading international crime fiction out of order and to think, I used to be such a stickler about it!

I also made the mistake of going on to NetGalley to update my profile and add a completed review. That meant I just had to have a little look at their listings too...

Death by Petticoat: American History Myths Debunked by Mary Miley Theobald
Erebos by Ursula Poznanski
Emerald City by Alicia K. Leppert

  1. Oh, can't wait to read the reviews of those crime novels... Love some blood in the middle of the week :)

  2. Okay, I want to read Death By Petticoat!

  3. Never heard of any of these (how is that possible?) looking forward to your reviews


  4. Ah, I see you also went for "Death by Petticoat" - it sounds so quirky I couldn't resist requesting it myself a lil while ago!

  5. I've had to ban myself from going any where near NetGalley.. just don't have time to read the books I pick up from there and I want to read some I buy for once so yeah. I'm on a NetGalley ban. Ha.

  6. I've not checked out NetGalley yet. My TBR is very high and I have a shed load of requested reviews lined up. I think I'd better steer clear for awhile. You've got quite a selection there.

  7. Great set! Death by Petticoat sounds really cool. I'll have to look it up.

  8. It's been ages since I read some good crime fiction! I must have a look through my bookshelves for one...
    Love the sound of all your NetGalley books! Will have to check them out myself, too!

  9. You've got Erebos! Excellent! I've been eyeing this book on Netgalley, but have too many books requested at this time :) Will be waiting for your review!


Everyone loves comments, right? I read them all and do my best to visit your blog if you leave a link (and you're not a spambot).
