In My Mailbox 8

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren and originally inspired by Alea at Pop Culture Junkie, used to showcase the books we bought, borrowed, got for review...

For review


Dark Kiss by Michelle Rowen

Thank you Harlequin Teen for the review copy! I hope I can read this soon. It sounds amazing. I think it's time to read a nice paranormal c:

Bought

    

The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter
Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder
Elemental by Brigid Kemmerer

I saw this at a very low price on amazon (I think 0.99 or something like that) and I. Couldn't. Resist. Lately I've been enjoying mythological YA themed books, so of course I couldn't let this pass. And the first book I read by Maria V. Snyder was Touch of Power and I immediately fell in love with her writing. Poison Study has been on my wishlist for a long time, and I couldn't wait to read something else by the author.

And finally, Elemental is the prequel of the Storm series, the first book coming out later this month. I've heard only great things about this one, and when I saw it while browsing for books it was practically screaming at me to buy it.

By the way, Happy Easter! :)

Wait, wait, wait.... Poison study a 0.99? Cuándo? Y ahora porqué no? O_O Yo leí de Maria Snyder Inside out y también me encantó, este llevo queriendo leerlo desde hace siglos, pero con la acumulación que tengo...
De Goddess test he leído opiniones de lo más variadas, aunque a mí la mitología también me llama.
Ya nos contarás que tal. Un besito :)

I've heard many people say the Goddess test is awesome so I might end up picking it up as well :)

Happy reading and Happy Easter!

I am sooo in love with the cover of Dark Kiss right now! I hope you enjoy all you got :)

Here's my IMM!

Mimi Valentine said...

Oh gosh, it can't just be me who is in love with the cover for Dark Kiss -- the whole darkness of it is so gorgeous! x) And I'm dancing inside that you're going to read Elemental, Soph! I read it because I've only heard the most amazing things about Storm too, and all I have to say is that if Storm is anywhere near as awesome as Elemental was, it's going to be a FANTASTIC book!

And I haven't read anything by Maria V. Snyder yet, but I'm planning on breaking that streak really soon ;)

Amazing mailbox this week, Sophie! I hope you have an amazing Easter too! :) ♥

Ah! I'm so jealous you got Dark Kiss. It sounds SO good. And I know I've told you already, but I really can't wait to hear what you think of Poison Study. I hope you enjoy it.

Great haul this week!

Elemental is ABSOLUTELY AWESOME! I can't wait to hear your thoughts on the book! And EEEE..Poison Study! I've got the whole trilogy and just need to find the perfect time to read it!

The godess test and Dark kiss, nice! :D

Happy reading!

A. Knight @ Paranormal Indulgence said...

BRO, Dark Kiss is BOUND to be amazing. I just refuse to believe anything else when there's that cover! And I'm digging the fact that you picked up Poison Study. I read Touch of Power first as well and I can tell you you will definitely enjoy Poison Study. Oh, Valek... *dreamy sigh*

Have an amazing reading week!
