In My Mailbox #26

In My Mailbox is a meme hosted by Kristi @ The Story Siren once a week which explores the weekly contents of your mailbox and books bought.

Hello everyone, I hope you guys all had a great week. Now I know I said this like last month and then failed to update for another month but hopefully I will be back and into the swing of blogging again, I’ve been very remiss, so apologies. I’m really missing talking books with everyone. I don’t think things are going to slow down with uni but I’m definitely going to try and write at least one review a week again, I’m not sure yet if this is realistic but we’ll see. But enough of my excuses lets get into the good stuff, the books!

For Review:

Demonglass (Hex Hall #2) by Rachel Hawkins (Hyperion Books/March 1, 2011)

Sophie Mercer thought she was a witch.

That was the whole reason she was sent to Hex Hall, a reform school for delinquent Prodigium (aka witches, shapeshifters, and fairies). But that was before she discovered the family secret, and that her hot crush, Archer Cross, is an agent for The Eye, a group bent on wiping Prodigium off the face of the earth.

Turns out, Sophie’s a demon, one of only two in the world—the other being her father. What’s worse, she has powers that threaten the lives of everyone she loves. Which is precisely why Sophie decides she must go to London for the Removal, a dangerous procedure that will destroy her powers.

But once Sophie arrives she makes a shocking discovery. Her new friends? They’re demons too. Meaning someone is raising them in secret with creepy plans to use their powers, and probably not for good. Meanwhile, The Eye is set on hunting Sophie down, and they’re using Archer to do it. But it’s not like she has feelings for him anymore. Does she?

I finished reading this only a couple of days ago and really enjoyed it. These books make for such fun reading and Sophie sure has a sharp tongue.


These Things Hidden by Heather Gudenkauf (Mira/March 18, 2011)

After reading so many glowing reviews with words like compelling and moving novel I just had to find myself a copy.

Like Mandarin by Kirsten Hubbard (Delacorte Press Books for Young Readers/March 8, 2011)

This has been on my wishlist for about a year, it has finally arrived, yay! Bring on the contempy goodness!

Lament by Maggie Stiefvater (Scholastic/January 3, 2011)

If this is anything like Shiver I know I’ll love it! Plus I’m still slightly obsessed with anything faery, I know I know I’ll grow out of it one day but that’s not today.

Blood & Flowers by Penny Blubaugh (HarperTeen/March 1, 2011)

Pretty cover = enough said!

Afterlife (Evernight #4) by Claudia Gray (HarperCollins Children’s Books/March 3, 2011)

Final in the amazingly nutty, mind bending Evernight series, I’m obsessed and I don’t know why, I just have this compulsion to read it.

Bloodfever (Fever #2) by Karen Marie Moning (Dell/August 26, 2008) [Adult]

I was sucked in by Darkfever the first book in the series (like everyone else I’m intrigued by that fine man Barrons, what is he?) and had to go straight to the bookstore to find myself the second book in the series.

Dreamfever (Fever #4) by Karen Marie Moning (Dell/October 26, 2010) [Adult]

Now you may (or may not) be wondering why on earth did I procure the 2nd and 4th books in the Fever series and not the 3rd? Well they didn’t have the 3rd book at Borders, very irritating, and seeing as I had to use up my entire balance on my Borders gift card (it’s a long story but basically Borders in Australia is in deep financial trouble) I thought I might as well buy both and find the 3rd book somewhere else, so there you go.
