In My Mailbox #29: The Post-Hiatus Edition

I really (hopefully) mean it when I say "post-hiatus"!  The reality is that I just don't have as much time to read and blog as I did during high school, but I'm determined to post and participate more.  In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren, in which bloggers show off all the fantastic, shiny-new (or library-borrowed) books we received over the past week.  I didn't get as many new books as usual, despite the blog's short hiatus, but there are a few exciting new books waiting on my shelves:

 Here's what I got:

Books-- YA & Adult:

I've already ripped my way through the pages of the amazing read that is Hannah Moskowitz's Teeth.   I read Fire, too, a long time back, but don't really remember it as well as Graceling other than that it is very good.

 Throne of the Crescent Moon is an adult fantasy set in a world resembling the Middle East in the earlier days of Islam, maybe around the Arabian Nights era.  It's a relatively little-known compared to some other fantasy epics-- even though it was nominated for the Nebula-- but I do like... lots of ghul-hunters, desert shapeshifters, and alchemy.

Manga & Graphic Novels:

Blue Exorcist is a shonen manga series which I think is so far pretty great-- it's really exciting with cool, vague concepts (typical for guys' manga) and pretti-ful art (not as typical for guys' manga). I will probably do a series review for it after I read a few more volumes, like with Library Wars, 'cause I don't like to review manga volume-by-volume.  Darker Than Black is a manga based off a popular anime series which I've never seen...but the art is very easy on the eyes (I am a sucker for eye-candy art) and the story seems interesting.
What did you get in your mailbox this week?  I'd love to check out your posts-- just leave me a link and I'll be sure to visit back!

@Patrick-- I loooved Teeth! It's definitely going on my favorites shelf and I'm trying to think about the daunting prospect of writing a review for it now...

@juliababyjen-- I remember loving Fire, like all of Kristin Cashore's books, but when I saw it at the bookstore I realized I didn't remember reading it-- just that I really liked it, haha. Will let you know what I think this time!

Thanks for visiting!
