in my mailbox (16)

I have some exciting books this week! And I'm off to Borders after this, so I might have to put in an addendum.

For Review:
Frost, Marianna Baer
Thank you to Samantha of Living Little Women for this ARC. I've been looking for a different sort of YA, something that's more of a mystery/thriller and this one's had quite good reviews so far, so I'm looking forward to starting it.


Hades, Alexandra Adornetto
Thank you to Feiwel & Friends for sending a copy of this my way. This is second in the Halo series, and I haven't read Halo yet and so I'm going to see if Borders has it so I can properly review it. The cover looks fun, and it seems to be about angels, which is something I haven't tried in a while.

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, Michelle Hodkin
Thank you to Once Upon a Twilight for letting me participating in the ARC tour for Mara Dyer. I will be reading this one today, so you can expect a review to be up within the next week or so. I'm all sorts of excited for this one, and can't wait for my finished copy to come!

Purchased:
Cascade, Lisa. T. Bergren
Cascade is second in the River of Time series, which is one I find to be incredibly engrossing and have pretty much fallen in love with. I'm going to try my hardest to put up reviews of this and Waterfall in the next few days, even if they're mini-reviews.

As I was preparing to take a picture of the first book, Tigger curled up around it and so I used him as a backdrop/prop for the rest. Thanks, stripes, for being such a handsome model.

first of all, LOVE your cat! second of all, i really hope you like halo. it's, um, seemed to rack up an astonishingly high number of negative reviews on goodreads, so... oh, and you got mara! so lucky. i'm still pining for that one. i'm SO disappointed they didn't put it up on galleygrab arg.

We have the exact same type of cat! :P
I really enjoyed Frost--hopefully you do, too! It's definitely different. But in a good way!
I'm reading Mara Dyer right now, and I'm loving it!
Happy reading! :)

I've been seeing a lot of good reviews of Frost. I think I might have to add it to my TBR list.

I know a lot of people didn't like Halo all that much, but I loved all the description in it. And I just started Halo. Anyway, hope you enjoy them all :)

Here's what I received this week :)
