In My Mailbox - 3/5/11

Credit goes to The Story Siren for creating and hosting the In My Mailbox feature.

Here are the new books I got this week:

For review:

Spells by Aprilynne Pike

Laurel’s world is rocked on the first day of her senior year when she spots Tamani—the faerie sentry with whom she shares an electrifying connection—posing as a transfer student. Before she can deal with the repercussions this will have on her relationship with her human boyfriend, David, Laurel meets new student Yuki—who turns out to also be a faerie.
Eager to distract herself from the brewing rivalry between David and Tamani, Laurel focuses her attention on figuring out how a “wild” faerie like Yuki could exist outside of Avalon. Laurel is soon forced to confront a danger darker than anything she’s ever imagined—and this time she may not have Tamani or David by her side.
Illusions is poised to delight and amaze readers with heart-pounding suspense, breathtaking romance, and a cliff-hanger ending that will leave them desperate for the fourth and final novel in the series.


Abandon by Meg Cabot

New from #1 New York Times bestselling author Meg Cabot, a dark, fantastical story about this world . . . and the underworld.
When Pierce first sees him, she thinks he is a murderer. She's right about one thing -- he does take lives. But not in the way she ever imagined. Pierce is drawn to the dark stranger even as she tries to uncover the mystery surrounding the tragic death of someone close to her. As she gets closer to the truth -- and the stranger -- unexpected secrets are revealed, even in her own heart.

My Royal Story: Henry VIII's Wives by Alison Prince

On her 10th birthday in 1536 Beatrice meets the King and his new queen, Jane Seymour, at Greenwich Palace. That same day, her friends Eva and Elinor entrust her with their old diaries. Reading these, she comes to understand the lives of two earlier queens, Catherine of Aragon and Anne Boleyn, as she enters the service of not just one of Henry's queens, but three.

Abandon looks pretty good. I love some of Meg Cabot's other series. May have to wait until the whole trilogy is out before I read them though.
Happy reading.

I'm insanely jealous. Every single one looks fabulous. I'm especially excited for "Illusions" and I've heard nothing but excitment surrounding "Abandon."

Alison said...

Fabulous reads! I can't wait to get Illusions.

I love everything that has to do with the Tudors, especially when King Henry VIII, his wifes and more particularly Anne Boleyn are involved, so nice pick. Abandon sounds like a very excellent book, and I wish I had a copy of it as well. Enjoy reading!
