Birthday goodies!

In honor of my birthday being today, I'm posting an In My Mailbox, which is hosted by the delightful Story Siren!

I don't know whether I'm an easy person to buy gifts for since I love and always appreciate books, or if that makes it harder because I have so many! In any case, I got some really excellent books this week as birthday gifts:

My own copy of Fire by Kristin Cashore!

The Demon's Librarian by Lilith Saintcrow!

Boneshaker by Cherie Priest!

The Black Tattoo by Sam Enthoven!

Savor Me Slowly by Gena Showalter!

Poison Study by Maria Snyder!

The Complete Sherlock Holmes, Volume II by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle!

As if my TBR pile needed to be any bigger! Still, I'm in love with all my new books. Picking what to read next is going to be tough!
