Fanciful Reader

a book blog about romance and more. . .

In my mailbox 2/21/11: Presidents’ Day Edition

I’ve fallen off the blogging wagon and I’m going to attempt to get back on by doing some easy meme posts. So here are the books I acquired this week:

The Land of Painted Caves by Jean M. Auel (ARC courtesy of a contest that was linked through the Shelf Awareness newsletter).

A question for anyone who’s read this book–do you think The Land of Painted Caves is a good standalone book or should I try to read the rest of the books in this series first? It’s only thousands of pages, I’ve got time, right?

The Emerald Atlas
by John Stephens (again, an ARC from the publisher via Shelf Awareness)

House of Prayer No. 2: A Writer’s Journey Home
by Mark Richard

The Masque of the Black Tulip by Lauren Willig (which I finished in just a few days)

The Deception of the Emerald Ring by Lauren Willig

I also got a few titles through Kindle’s lending program and e-ARCs from Netgalley. I’m going on vacation at the end of this week and I feel confident that I won’t run out of reading material, even if I get stranded on a desert island (that miraculously has an outlet to charge my Kindle).

Thanks for visiting!

Hannah
