In My Mailbox #3
In My Mailbox, hosted by The Story Siren is a weekly post that allows book bloggers to share their excitement over new books they have received each week.
I’ve had a crazy busy week getting my daughter ready to start childcare for the first time (eeek!) so I haven’t had much time to read, surf Netgalley or buy books… this is probably a good thing! I still did pick up a couple of things which i’m sharing below:
Part of my birthday present this year was a $150 Amazon gift voucher so that I could buy some Kindle books guilt free. I thought about splurging it all on pre-orders and things off my wishlist but decided that wouldn’t be as much fun as using it up slowly by purchasing something every week or so. These are my first birthday present choices!
I’m so excited to read the last of this trilogy! This was such a great series even if the book covers are pretty blah
After a devastating battle at headquarters in New York, the ghostkeeping world is in shambles. When Emma and Bennett return home, they are determined to defeat the wraithmaster, Neos, forever. But it’s not going to be easy. Bennett’s parents kick him out when they realize he is still using drugs to enhance his powers. Emma is convinced her aunt has come back from the dead to warn her of a new threat. And worst of all, Neos is using wraiths to possess the students at Thatcher Academy. If the ghosts manage to take over the entire school, even Emma won’t be strong enough to stop them. But if either she or Bennett sacrifice his or her powers, they might be able to save the ghostkeeping world once and for all-and break the “ghostkeepers lose their powers when they fall in love” curse. The question is: who will be the one to surrender all power?
Fast-paced and romantic, this conclusion to the Haunting Emma trilogy will thrill readers as it brings the ghostly mystery to a close.
This book has been on my to-read this for ages and I finally decided it was time to buy it. I love a good murder mystery!
Clarity “Clare” Fern sees things. Things no one else can see. Things like stolen kisses and long-buried secrets. All she has to do is touch a certain object, and the visions come to her. It’s a gift.
And a curse.
When a teenage girl is found murdered, Clare’s ex-boyfriend wants her to help solve the case—but Clare is still furious at the cheating jerk. Then Clare’s brother—who has supernatural gifts of his own—becomes the prime suspect, and Clare can no longer look away. Teaming up with Gabriel, the smoldering son of the new detective, Clare must venture into the depths of fear, revenge, and lust in order to track the killer. But will her sight fail her just when she needs it most?
I signed up for Edelweiss this week and put in some requests but sadly haven’t heard anything back. I’m not too sure if publishers don’t check this system as regularly or if I’ve done something hopelessly wrong (very likely I’m getting pretty fail with technology as I get older). In anycase I hope to get some response on them in the next week or so before I put in any further requests anything else as I don’t want my review list to get out of hand! Anyone familiar with Edelweiss is welcome to give me some ideas of their experiences with the system and how long responses generally take!
I loved the cover and thought the synopsis sounded very intriguing. This is the 2nd book in the series so I must remember to purchase book 1 for the Kindle sometime next week so I can get started on it!
It’s been over six months since the eruption of the Yellowstone supervolcano. Alex and Darla have been staying with Alex’s relatives, trying to cope with the new reality of the primitive world so vividly portrayed in Ashfall, the first book in this series. It’s also been six months of waiting for Alex’s parents to return from Iowa. Alex and Darla decide they can wait no longer and must retrace their journey into Iowa to find and bring back Alex’s parents to the tenuous safety of Illinois. But the landscape they cross is even more perilous than before, with life-and-death battles for food and power between the remaining communities. When the unthinkable happens, Alex must find new reserves of strength and determination to survive.
