In My Mailbox #17


One more Sunday, one more visit from Mr Postman... Hosted by The Story Siren, this weekly meme is here to display my terrible weaknes! Ready so see what I got, even when I shouldn't have?

  • Books I got for review: 


Special thanks to authors Emily AnnWard and D.J. Butler, and to Candlewick Publishing for providing these copies. I'm really looking forward to them!

  • Books I got because I couldn't help it: 

      

   

Let's see: Finnikin of the Rock is book 1 to Froi of the Exiles, up in "for review". I actually requested Froi because I discovered Finnikin and fell in love.

Before is the 0.5 volume in the Heven and Hell series. I found it for free over at WHSmith/Kobo and couldn't resist the temptation to test the series. Same thing happened with Stone Lord - a short belonging to a larger series, which should be perfect to test the waters and figure out if I want to give it a shot.

Wicked rake, Defiant Mistress was also free and I thought, well, this is the perfect moment to read something that I like but don't usually buy! Regency Romance, ladies and gentlemen. And it sounds quite thrilling!


And that's it. What do you think? What did you get?

  1. I've been reading a lot of good things about Melina Marchetta - appears like she has received a great deal of recognition for a few of the novels she has written (around seven I believe) - the Froy series seems to be quite popular too. I feel left out that I haven't heard/read any of these yet. Do drop me a line if you have your reviews up - would love to check out your thoughts about these books. Happy Reading!!
