In My Mailbox (50)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. I have included links to Goodreads should you want more information on the books. I was good this week and am sticking to my book ban and reading my own books. Did receive a few new-to-me books from co-workers, but staying away from the temptation of bookstores.

Received a copy of Christine Warren's Born To Be Wild from a co-worker. Love shapeshifter stories, and this looks like a good one!

Josie Barrett brings out the animal in men. Literally. As the local veterinarian in a town that’s approximately seventy percent Others - mostly shapeshifters - Josie deals with beastly situations all the time. It’s practically part of her job description. But when the werewolves of Stone Creek, Oregon, start turning downright feral, Josie smells a rat - among other, more dangerous critters.

Pride Mates by Jennifer Ashley was also from one of my co-workers. Guess seeing me read every day during lunch gave them the impression that I like books. Another shifter story, about a shifter and a human thrown together. This one is classified as a paranormal romance, so guessing sparks fly. Love it!

Twenty years ago shape, shifters had announced themselves to the world only to be shunted into Shiftertowns” and forced to wear collars that control their hunting and fighting instincts (referred to as “Taking the Collar”).

While I'm being good and not buying any books this month, I am adding to my wishlist with all the good titles I"m finding on everyone's In My Mailbox posts! Happy reading!
