Monday: Books in the Mail

Here I am back again! I didn't make a Monday post last week because ... well, let's just say when I came back after 3 weeks of being away I had way too many books to make a posting about. While there was a tonne, it was a healthy mix of novels and graphic novels to review, books I had won and even a couple of bookmooches. But I do now have quite a heavy stack of books towering on my bedside table, just after I'd got all got up with the current arcs, too. ;-)

On to this past week, a nice small load for the mailbox this week to help me get caught up:

From Boom! Studios:

Incorruptible by Mark Waid
This past December, BOOM! showed the world that Mark Waid is now... INCORRUPTIBLE — here’s your chance to get the first four issues of the hit series collected in just one volume! Super villain Max Damage had an epiphany the day The Plutonian destroyed Sky City. When The Plutonian turned his back on humanity, Max Damage decided to step up. Now Max Damage has changed his name to Max Daring and turned from his formerly selfish ways to become... INCORRUPTIBLE. (US) - (Canada)

From Penguin Group (Canada):

mockingbird (mok'ing-burd) by Kathryn Erskine
In Caitlin’s world, everything is black or white. Things are good or bad. Anything in between is confusing. That’s the stuff Caitlin’s older brother, Devon, has always explained. But now Devon’s dead and Dad is no help at all. Caitlin wants to get over it, but as an eleven-year-old girl with Asperger’s, she doesn’t know how. When she reads the definition of closure, she realizes that is what she needs. In her search for it, Caitlin discovers that not everything is black and white—the world is full of colors—messy and beautiful. (US) -

From LibraryThing Early Reviewers:

Alison Dare: Little Miss Adventures by J. Torres
Alison Dare: Indiana Jones meets Lara Croft in fabulous, graphic adventures.Alison Dare is not your typical twelve-year-old. She's the daughter of an archaeologist/adventurer and the masked hero known as the Blue Scarab. To top it off, she's also the niece of an international super-spy; it's no surprise that a craving for danger is in her blood! Unfortunately, her parents have locked her away at the prestigious St. Joan's Academy for Girls, hoping that this would lead to a more "normal" life for their daughter.

But despite all the strict rules at the school, Alison and her best pals - Wendy and Dot - somehow manage to find themselves involved in adventures that rival those of Alison's globetrotting, planet-saving relatives. Whether it's magic genies, super-powered bank robbers, or a dastardly baron bent on world domination, Alison Dare delivers the best thrills since Indiana Jones and more action than Lara Croft!
