Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming,
"WOO HOO, what a ride!"

Mailbox Monday

Mailbox Monday (started at The Printed Page and now a traveling meme) is at Let Them Read Books this month and is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week (checked out library books don’t count, eBooks & audio books do). Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.

Only one book arrived in the mail this week but I can't seem to stop when it comes to ebooks and library books. There are just so many good ones! I really should be shopping and wrapping (and cleaning and baking and cleaning and shopping some more) but reading is so much more fun. Especially when the house is quiet and peaceful and the Christmas lights are lit. I wish you all happy reading this holiday season!

Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
From Paperback Swap

Cherie Priest's much-anticipated steampunk debut has finally arrived in the form of a paperback original. Its plot features the sort of calibrated suspense that readers of her Four and Twenty Blackbirds would expect. Boneshaker derives its title from the Bone-Shaking Drill Engine, a device designed to give Russian prospectors a leg up in the race for Klondike gold. Unfortunately, there was one hitch: On its trial run, the Boneshaker went haywire and, long story short, turned much of Seattle into a city of the dead. Now, 16 years later, a teenage boy decides to find out what is behind that mysterious wall. Can his mother save him in time? Zombie lit of the first order.


  1. Don't think I'd read this one but I do like the cover. Happy reading!

  2. ooohh, zombies and steampunk--one of my favorite combinations! Adding this one to my list!
