Mail Call!

   In My Mailbox, inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie and memefied by Kristi at the Story Siren, explores the contents of book bloggers' mailboxes on a weekly basis! 

Here's what my mailbox had for me this week:

Prada and Prejudice by Mandy Hubbard
  To impress the popular girls on a high school trip to London, klutzy Callie buys real Prada heels. But trying them on, she trips...conks her head...and wakes up in the year 1815!
   There Callie meets Emily, who takes her in, mistaking her for a long-lost friend. As she spends time with Emily's family, Callie warms to them--particularly to Emily's cousin Alex, a handsome duke, if a tad arrogant. But can Callie save Emily from a 
dire engagement, and win Alex's heart before her time in the past is up?
Thanks so much to the amazing Sarah of GreenBeanTeenQueen for sending me her (signed) copy! I was sosososo happy when it came in the mail--I've been dying to read this one! And isn't the cover just adorable? I love it. Thanks, Sarah! (: 

From Random House:

Bloodhound by Tamora Pierce
   Beka Cooper is finally a Dog--a full-fledged member of the Provost's Guard, dedicated to keeping peace in Corus's streets. But there's unrest in Tortall's capital. Counterfeit coins are turning up in shops all over the city, and merchants are raising prices to cover their losses. The Dogs discover that gamblers are bringing the counterfeit money from Port Caynn. In Port Caynn, Beka delves deep into the gambling world, where she meets a charming bank clerk named Dale Rowan. Beka thinks she may be falling for Rowan, but she won't let anything-or anyone-jeopardize her mission. As she heads north to an abandoned silver mine, it won't be enough for Beka to be her usual "terrier" self. She'll have to learn from Achoo to sniff out the criminals-to be a Bloodhound...
I'm not sure about this one. To tell the truth, it doesn't sound like my thing, but I'll give it a try! Has anybody out there read this series? Plus the cover is pretty cool (:

The Beef Princess of Practical County by Michelle Houts
I already have a copy of this, so expect a giveaway soon! (:

Bloodhound! U haven't read the series yet, but I loved Tamora Pierce's Tortall books. Kind of disliked her Emelan books. It should be good!
