In My Mailbox (12)

In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren.

Yes, last week I didn't receive anything so I didn't make an IMM post.
Although, this week I received two and I should have gone to the bookstore to get Strange Angels, but Daddy was too tired to take me there. Well, I got two Tess Gerritsen's books, the seventh and the eighth in the Jane Rizzoli & Maura Isles series. How exciting is that!? Loved it.

Bought:
Keeping The Dead (UK version of The Keepsake) by Tess Gerritsen

For Review:
Ice Cold by Tess Gerritsen (ARC)

Thank you, Random House!
Thank you, Dustin from Tess Gerritsen Fans' group on Goodreads!

  4. yeah im a member of goodreads! you are so lucky!!!Ive been a fan of tess way back in 1998 after reading the surgeon. again i would like to recommend to you her book entitled BLOODSTREAM. it's also a medical thriller with a twist! i've read all her books except ICE COLD and i still have to wait for the paperback to be released here.huhuhu,the book in hardcover is a bit expensive here that's why i will wait for another year to read it...that's why you're so lucky! i only buy bargain books because im still looking for work... anyways cant wait to read your review, but wait, i cant! i want to read the book first, and that'll be in 2011, whenever the paperback will be out.huhu.GOD bless and dont stop reading! GOD bless!

  5. Nunca li nada dessa autora! *praticamente só ler chick-lit* Mas como é o começo dessa série?

    Outra coisa pra matar minha curiosidade XD O que esse "Goodreads"? É tipo.. um fórum de discussão ou algo do tipo? Oo

    ^^

  10. @Ruperto: Wow! Since 1998? That's too long. I've known her books since last year, I think. I am so sorry you can't get a copy as soon as it comes out. I'd do what's possible for me to do so you could get one. Let's work on it! :) And, yeah, I've heard of Bloodstream, but I still have 6 of her books to read, so...

  11. @Mariana e @Iris: Em ordem, a série é composta por, até agora, oito livros: O Cirurgião, O Dominador, O Pecador, Dublê de Corpo, Desaparecidas, The Mephisto Club, The Keepsake e Ice Cold. Esses três últimos ainda não foram lançados aqui... Mas você pode encontrar os outros facilmente. :-) Então, comecem por O Cirurgião, apesar de que ela tem outros livros fora dessa série, como O Jardim de Ossos, que eu ainda não li, mas dizem ser MUITO bom.

    @Mariana: Goodreads é um site tipo o Skoob, mas tem as páginas dos autores, comunidades, etc. :-)

  13. @Ruperto: Yes. You truly deserve to get a copy! I just emailed Tess about it and I hope she replies asap. Aw, I had never heard of these books, but I can imagine how was it, I think. Nancy Drew is famous... That I've heard about once. Hahaha. Thank you so much! You've been very nice... Thank you for visiting my blog! And, YES, you definitely should read WHISPER. Phoebe is so wonderful, be it as a writer or as a person! Oh, I don't mind... I love long messages! :-) Thanks!
