In My Mailbox

Ah, I was worried that I wouldn't have any books to show today, but my mailbox (ooh, nice joke) proved me wrong.

Just typical. No love life to speak of for months, then all at once, every horny creature in the Otherworld wants to get in your pants.
Eugenie Markham is a powerful shaman who does a brisk trade banishing spirits and fey who cross into the mortal world. Mercenary, yes, but a girl's got to eat. Her most recent case, however, is enough to ruin her appetite. Hired to find a teenager who has been taken to the Otherworld, Eugenie comes face to face with a startling prophecy-one that uncovers dark secrets about her past and claims that Eugenie's first-born will threaten the future of the world as she knows it.
Now Eugenie is a hot target for every ambitious demon and Otherworldy ne'er-do-well, and the ones who don't want to knock her up want her dead. Eugenie handles a Glock as smoothly as she wields a wand, but she needs some formidable allies for a job like this. She finds them in Dorian, a seductive fairy king with a taste for bondage, and Kiyo, a gorgeous shape-shifter who redefines animal attraction. But with enemies growing bolder and time running out, Eugenie realizes that the greatest danger is yet to come, and it lies in the dark powers that are stirring to life within her.

Yes, yes. It is an adult book. Well, it doesn't matter much to me. I am determined to try to read all books from the author that is Richelle Mead. Besides, I read the first chapter of the book on her site and found it...cute...? Yeah. So, I don't think my mind will shrivel away from bad words and suggestive situations.

LAURA DELACROIX BELL—this dazzling trust fund girl’s size 14 figure doesn’t stop her from attracting the sexiest scoundrel in town, or the admiring eye of the Glass Slipper Club. However, a salacious secret could take her out of the running.
Michelle “Mac” Mackenzie—brainy, cynical, and maybe a tad judgmental, Mac would rather bury her nose in a good book than embrace her deb destiny. But being a debutante was her late mother’s dream.
Ginger Fore—this adorable tree-hugger wants to wear her grandmother’s vintage ball gown instead of splurging on an expensive dress. Yet when she gets tangled up with an older guy, Ginger will have plenty more to think about.
Jo-Lynn Bidwill—a former child beauty queen, Jo-Lynn is a bitchy vamp who makes it her mission in life to take out the debu-trash. And Jo-Lynn’s sights are set on Laura Bell.

Well, this week has just been full of books Tay-Toe usually dosn't buy and long summaries, eh? This book isn't my usual cup of tea--whereas fantasy and supernatural books are--I think that I can manage reading a normal book of snotty chicks and actually enjoy myself. I've read good things about this book and I'm excited for when it is it's turn in my TBR pile.

Oh, and ha-ha-ha Debs. They made a funny. Right, call that Jo-Lynn chick a bitchy vamp because--what?--does she suck the life out of everything, maybe? Cute.
