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!
It’s FALL!! HUZZAH!! My favorite season of the year. The leaves are starting to turn, the air is getting crispy, and I’ve had hankerings for pumpkin bread and spiced apple cider. EXCELLENT news, guys. But the start of fall also means something else in my reading life: Maggie Stiefvater. I swear, I read her books during this season ALL THE TIME. Maybe because her books come out this time of year, it seems, but they also feel right being read now, too. I got only one book this week, which I purchased for myself.
The Raven Boys: The Raven Cycle # 1 by Maggie Stiefvater. So I’ve actually already read this one because I was lucky enough to get an ARC at BEA this year. Guys, it was pretty legit. Mysterious and creepy in a way that Maggie’s other books aren’t: a bunch of very different boys from a wealthy private school on the hunt for the burial place of an ancient Welsh king, and the girl daughter of psychics who helps them but is cursed to kill her true love with just one kiss. It’s totally different and really enjoyable. I’ll be reviewing it soon–and giving away my ARC to boot! HOLLA!
Also, some quick bloggy business…
So apparently there was some shizz that went down with Feedburner recently that I was unaware of until yesterday. My apologies! But I went and fixed it right quick, and set up shop at Feedblitz. Alas, even though I migrated my Feedburner feed, I lost all of my feed followers, you precious, beautiful few. I’ve updated my RSS feed link on the sidebar, or you can just click HERE to continue the goodness.
