In My Mailbox (31)

June 10, 2012

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!

So, BEA happened this past week and I got some great stuff, guys. I’ll probably tell you more about it later this week. But don’t sleep on these books, either! They’re awesome, too!


book cover for Spark by Brigid Kemmerer

Spark: Elementals #2 by Brigid Kemmerer (August 28, 2012 from K Teen). So I haven’t actually read the first book, STORM, in this series yet. But I have it, and I am DYING to get to it because it sounds so good–brothers who can control the elements and get caught up in danger and conspiracies, etc. Also, Tara from Hobbitses assures me that there are MANY hot boys in it, so I can only imagine that this would still be the case in book #2.  


book cover for Pretty Crooked by Elisa Ludwig

Pretty Crooked by Elisa Ludwig (March 13, 2012 from Katherine Tegen Books)I’m so excited to be a part of Literary Logistics‘ blog tour for this book! A modern-day retelling of Robin Hood, with a girl as the thief, stealing from the rich kids at her high school? YES, PLEASE. My date for this tour is June 28th, so keep an eye out for my review then!


Guys, I’ve recently started falling for audiobooks. Mostly I thank April from Good Books and Good Wine, who is always talking them up, and Asheley from Into the Hall of Books for LOVING UP my first purchase, THE NAME OF THE WIND by Patrick Rothfuss. They have inspired me to go audio, friends, and since Audible was having a sale yesterday, I snagged two more books.

book cover for The Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss

The Wise Man’s Fear: The Kingkiller Chronicle #2 from Brilliance Audio. Narrated by Nick Podehl. GUYS, I’m in the middle of listening to THE NAME OF THE WIND right now and I’ve loved it almost from the instant it started. The world and the story are outstanding, Kvothe is STUDLY, and Nick Podehl’s voice is like butter/honey/magic/smoky hotness/PERFECTION.  I can’t wait to listen to book #2.

Book cover for Amy and Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson

Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson from Brilliance Audio. Narrated by Suzy Jackson. It shouldn’t be any secret that this is one of my FAVE contemporaries. I love road trips. I love well-formed and well-told romances. And I love great writing and great characters. Amy & Roger has all of these things. April from Good Books and Good Wine always talks about how awesome this audiobook is, and how super Suzy Jackson is. I’m excited to listen to this one, too!!

I hope you guys got lots of fabulous things in your mailboxes this week!

    I have those Patrick Rothfuss books sitting on my shelf…I really want to read them but I can never find the motivation. Ugh. I really should. Amy and Roger sounds like a really good summer read- I like reading about road trips in the summer! Hope you enjoy your books/audiobooks x

    WISE MAN’S FEAR!!!! So freaking good (Anna, you really should find time to read them). The second is excellent, I’m seriously so excited for you reading this series. I’m already prepared to reread them a third time when The Doors of Stone comes out.

    I enjoyed Morgan Matson’s latest, so I wouldn’t mind checking out Amy & Roger. 🙂

    Spark sounds excellent! I’ve been told to read Storm a bunch of times before, so maybe I need to get to it.
