In My Mailbox #5: Final Vacation Edition

My last summer vacation was this week (I went to the beach). Book shopping around Ocean Isle, NC isn't that great, but I came home to six packages of books, which made up for it! Here they are:

For review:
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline (thank you to Crown)
I was soooo happy to snag a copy of this one! I've already started it, and so far it's pretty good.

Island's End by Padma Venkatraman (thanks, WhatchYAReading!)
Dracula in Love by Karen Essex (thanks, Bibliophilic Book Blog!)
Butterfly Swords by Jeannie Lin (thanks, Paperback Dolls!)

Trickster in the Land of Dreams by Zesse Papanikolas
Night Shivers by J.H. Riddell
Victorian gothic stories by a female author? Heck yeah!

Archaeology at Colonial Brunswick by Stanley South
For my slowly expanding collection of southern anthropology books; will be useful for college and future careers.
It's a very orange-y/red week this week, for some reason.

And, before I forget, the winner of the July swag box giveaway is Kaye M. Congrats, Kaye! She has already been contacted and has responded with her picks, which will be mailed out sometime next week. No swag box giveaway for this month; only four people entered in July, and I'll give the box some time to re-stock itself with some goodies.
