I got quite a few books this week – ones I have been waiting for for a while! (And apologies for the crappy photos – its my camera phone!)
Storm Glass and Sea Glass by Maria V. Snyder
I loved Maria’s The Poison Study, so I splurged and bought all her books! These are supposed to be more YA than her Study series, but set in the same universe.
Vampire Academy (signature edition) by Richelle Mead
The Espressologist by Kristina Springer
I have already read Springer’s book and LOVED it! Look out for a review this week. And I finally gave in and bought Vampire Academy – this is a hardcover which apparently has some sort of magical power when you hold it up to a webcam? Haven’t tried it yet…!
The Hobbit (Illustrated by Alan Lee) by J.R.R. Tolkien
Firespell by Chloe Neil
The Hobbit is part of my LOTR Readalong and is as wonderful as I remember it. And the illustrations are absolutely stunning! While Firespell is part of my YA debut author challenge (also hosted by The Story Siren), and, even though I am only 8 pages in, I am already in love with it!
So what came in your mailbox this week?
