Book Loot Giddy

I had a surprise in the mail this week.  I received "In the Forests of the Night" and for the life of me, I couldn't remember winning it so I thought I got click happy on Amazon and purchased it by mistake.  Inititally I couldn't find it in my emails then I checked again and found it!  I had won it way back last December!  Thank you Melissa.  It finally arrived.  :) 

**Edit update: oops, I actually won "Azure" and not purchased as originally posted.  My apologies, Tifferz!  Thank you!!

I went and browsed my local Friends of the Library bookstore and took advantage of the trade paper back grab bag.  Inside were 25 books for the bargain price of $5!  I figured there would be at least one book I'd like and even if not, I put my money to good use by helping the library.  Win-win situation.  Anyway,  there's only a few of these books that I'm familiar with and was wondering if you have any opinion on any of them?  Any must read-s or don't even bother-s?  Any of them you would like to see at the Sharing Some Mail Giddiness Giveaway? ~Thanks.
