Mailbox Monday: November 24th
The Shape of Mercy by Susan Meissner
I won The Shape of Mercy from MJ at Creative Madness. It apparently had quite an adventure getting to me. Our post office seems to be adept at destroying packages. This was the fourth or fifth package this year to show up in a plastic bag with an apology from the postal service. Amazingly, the book didn't have a scratch on it.
The Book of Names by D. Barkley Briggs
In December, I'll be participating in a book tour for The Book of Names, the first book in D. Barkley Briggs' Legends of Karac Tor trilogy. This young adult Christian fiction novel has been compared to the works of Tolkien and C.S. Lewis, two of my favorite authors, so I'm eager to read it. I love the cover; it calls to mind Edgar Allan Poe.
Doctor Who: The Forever Trap by Dan Abnett
If you're a regular reader of Bookish Ruth, you probably know that I love all things Doctor Who. Last week I took the opportunity to catch up on two exclusive Doctor Who audiobooks. The Forever Trap is narrated by Catherine Tate, who played Donna Noble in Series 4.
Doctor Who: Pest Control by Peter Anghelides
Narrated by David Tennant. It's so fun to hear the seemingly effortless switch from Tennant's natural Scottish burr to the Doctor's English accent. I've listened to several of the audiobooks David Tennant has read and each one has been a treat.
