in my mailbox (11)

This should be the last of the scheduled posts! I hope everyone is having a great weekend!

For review:
The Magician King, Lev Grossman
Cold Kiss, Amy Garvey
A Beautiful Dark, Jocelyn Davies

I'm thrilled that I got approved for The Magician King! I haven't yet finished The Magician, but after I finish a few other books it's next on my pile. Very much looking forward to it. I've heard great things about The Girl of Fire and Thorns and am also happy to be reading it. Cold Kiss sounds like a quick, fun read and A Beautiful Dark has been getting some excellent reviews so I thought I'd try it, too. (Her pose on the cover looks entirely uncomfortable!)

Hereafter, Tara Hudson
Outside In, Maria V. Snyder

I've actually finished both of these already. And, well, I tried to like Hereafter but the whole book was a huge struggle as it's pretty much the definition of instashipping in YA. Outside In was not as good as the first one, but still fast-paced and addictive. I've written reviews for both of them but I'll have to think on if I'm going to post them here or not.

Waterfall, Lisa T. Bergren
This one was free with my Borders rewards points! (I also pre-ordered Rachel Vincent's If I Die.) Every time I think of this one I can't help but wonder if it's a YA version of Gabaldon's Outlander series (which I never finished). Still, I have to admit I'm a big fan of historical fiction and I really really need to get caught up with my to-review pile so I can start it!

Wow, the covers of THE GIRL OF FIRE AND THORNS and A BEAUTIFUL dark are kind of similar -- interesting. I've heard a lot of good things about INSIDE OUT but haven't read it yet... hopefully you'll be reviewing it. :)

Cold Kiss looks really good. I've heard some good and bad things about it, though. Hope it's worth it!

I'm so jealous of all you people getting The Girl of Fire and Thorns! I'm really excited for that one.

I've seen Waterfall around lately and I'm super intrigued by it. I'll be interested in seeing your review. Also, YAY Harper titles! Hope you enjoy them :)

Really awesome books this week :) I have read Hereafter so I'm really curious what you'll think of it.

The girl on the Beautiful Dark cover *does* look a little awkward. :) Happy reading!
