In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren. It’s awesome. Every week, we all get a chance to tell everyone what new books we’ve gotten so that we can tell you guys and we can all drool and squee together! Huzzah for squees!
HAPPY HOLIDAY WEEKEND, guys!! Just a few treats this week, but they were pretty effin’ sweet so I HAVE to share them.
Throne of Glass: Throne of Glass #1 by Sarah J. Maas (August 7, 2012 from Bloomsbury Children’s). Guys, I’m giving you a heads up: I will be FANGIRLING this book HARD, probably forever. Not sure it matters that I haven’t even read it yet. I’m just so excited for it. It’s a high fantasy, loose retelling of Cinderella, except Cinderella is a criminal/assassin. Um, BOOM. When I got approved for this one, I FREAKED OUT. FREAKED. OUT. MAJORLY. (PS. There’s two prequel novellas out right now featuring the main character, Celaena. The first one, THE ASSASSIN AND THE PIRATE LORD, is FREE right now on Amazon, and the second one, THE ASSASSIN AND THE DESERT, is only 99 cents.)
The Scorpions of Zahir by Christine Brodien-Jones (July 10, 2012 from Delacorte BFYR). Um, a middle-grade book about an adventurous, curious young girl and her explorer family who run into some danger in the desert? I love the sound of this one, guys.
(Virtual hugs to Bloomsbury Children’s and Delacorte BFYR for this loot!)
Grave Mercy: His Fair Assassin #1 by Robin LaFevers. Guys, I don’t really want to be a person who FORCES books on people. Honestly, that’s not really my style. EXCEPT when the book in question is as BANGING as GRAVE MERCY. If you like historical fiction or fantasy, PLEASE RUN NOT WALK to the bookstore or the library and pick this one up. Pretty please? There will be no regrets.
(Virtual hugs to Robin LaFevers for writing this book and being a GENIUS OF WORDS!)
Great week for me, guys! Hope you had equally awesome mailboxes! And HAPPY HOLIDAYS again!
