Owl Post #6

Inspired by The Story Siren's In My Mailbox, Owl Post allows me to excitedly share all the yummy books I get in the mail each week! Owl's are much faster and more reliable than sneaky postmen, and the common way for magical folk to send and receive letters and parcels. Yes. I went to Hogwarts. Be jealous.

Anyone who has read my review knows my thoughts already, but just in case I didn't get my point  across.... ADRIANADRIANADRIANADRIANADRIAN!

Regardless of whether I like the story or not, I LOVE the book for the stunning presentation! I flicked through and in addition to some pretty coloured text, there are GORGEOUS illustrations that give this book such a fairy tale feel. I can't wait to read it!

 How creepy good does this sound?? I've read some great reviews that say how addictive it is, with lots of surprising twists, which BRODIE LOVES.

I haven't read the first book, but this actually looks pretty cool, so I might end up checking out the series. I don't read many (if any) MG books but sometimes you just feel like something DIFFERENT to the usual YA, so I'd like to give them a try. 

I've heard some great things about this and when Mimi ranks it among her top 6 books of 2012, it's hard for me to NOT get excited! I really hope it lives up to expectations because I need a new wolfy novel to obsess over.

I wasn't aware this was a sequel, so I'll have to grab the first book before I can read this. Has anyone read Spoiled? They aren't my usual kind of reads, but as I said above, sometimes different is good!

I hear a LOT of love for Sarah's Demon Lexicon series, so her name attached to this already makes me excited, even if I've yet to read any of her books. Plus it just sounds like a FUN vampy read!

Also, just quickly slipping in some winners for the Dead Actually giveaway! Congrats! I'll be emailing you three shortly :)

What did the owls deliver to you this week? 
Is anyone else not receiving their subscription to The Quibbler? I'm starting to think the Aurors have taken Mr. Lovegood hostage because he's the wikileaks of the wizarding world. The Rotfang Conspiracy IS potential cause for muggle Apocalyptic concern, people.


  1. Interesting how they changed the title to Deadly Hemlock in Australia!:)

    I am superduperexcited for some more Adrian, but I haven't gotten around to buying the book yet..:P

  2. You're so evil! LOL I am dying to get the golden lily in my hands this second! You can't say Adrian's name like that and not expect me to contain my squeals! Lol gosh! I need to buy that book and soon! Great haul :)

  3. Eeep! Golden Lily, Team Human, Deadly Hemlock (or as it's called here in Canada Hemlock) and Between the Lines! Your owl post is beyond epic this week. Seriously! I can't wait to see what you think of Team Human and Between the Lines. I loved Deadly Hemlock so I hope you love it as much as I do!

  4. I've read Spoiled! And I'm reading Messy right now :D I love these books, they're so cliched Hollywood and funnnyyyyyy! :D


    hahahaa this week should be your A&U week< :) JODI PICOULT IS THE BEST AUTHOR EVER. (Well...after J.K ROWLING of course!!!) Have you read any of Picoult's books before? They're AMAZING.

    I hope Team Human won't disappoint! I've never read any of Sarah's books, but I read the first two books in Justine's "Magic" series...and they were alright. Not the best series ever, but yeahhhh :)

    UNREST! DEADLY HEMLOCK!!! If Mimi says it's one of her fav. books of 2012, then IT MUST BE FANTABULOUS! Sooo cannot wait to read it<3


  6. lol brodie speaks about herself in 3th person ^_^
    what oooh oooh owly post this week
    deadly hemlock and unrest/ eyes expanding figuratively [that would hurt]

    njoy alll brodie

  7. Oohh so many awesome goodies Brodie. Team Human looks amazing and Deadly Hemlock was amazing! LOL.
    I really want to start Richelle Mead's Bloodlines series and I loved VA so hopefully soon.
    Hope you have a great week girl. xoxox Donna xoxox

  8. Team Human is an interesting title! Deadly Hemlock! I think the story is good even though I haven't actually read it yet. I've heard many good things about it!

    Happy reading, Brodie!

  9. I HAVE LIKE 4/6 OF THESE BOOKS! Now my post won’t be as interesting when you look at it... That’s sad. VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY!!! And you might me the one I mention that is in a hooded cloak with a military tank over your head coming for me since I haven’t finished reading the VA series. Hope it’s not but it could be Kim, or Celine, or one of those other girls that torment me to no end.

    Unrest did sound cool when I read the synopsis on facebook. So I’m also wondering how that is.


    I too got Team Human, Between the Lines, and Deadly Hemlock. Between the Lines . . . gosh there's not enough praise for this book and I would've totally overlooked this title so bless the publisher Gods for sending me the book . . . so I hope you enjoy it as well because it was FANTASTIC! Anyway great book haul, Brodie! Your owls are hard at work lately. :)

  11. Some nice titles there. I haven't read Golden Lily yet. I am hoping to receive my pre-order in the mail this week.

    Have a great week and happy reading :-)

  12. Ahhhh! I am jealous you have Between the Lines!!! I SO want it! But I don't think it's been released here yet. Let me know if you like it, yes? yes?

    I also nearly picked up Unrest yesterday, hope that you enjoy it!! :D

    Great working owls you got there Brodie! :-)

  13. Oooh very similar books this week! Funny how I'm usually getting them within the same week as you guys now :) AHHHH THE GOLDEN LILY. BRODIE BRODIE BRODIE I DIED. *FAINTS*

    All Hail The Mail!

  14. Brodie, aaaaah! Unrest and Deadly Hemlock!!! So so jealous and happy that you've go such an awesome pile of books :))) Enjoy them all!

  15. Books, books, books - YAY!

    I like the look of Messy but like you, I haven't read book 1 (although I've heard good things!) and I am looking forward to your review of Team Human, I've only read books by Justine and not Sarah, so I'm keen to know what it's like!

  16. Haha! I still don't think you quite got the point across about Golden Lily. ;)

    Great mailbox, Brodie!! Team Human is one of those books I am dying to read so you better tell me how awesome it is! :D I also can't wait to hear your thoughts on Unrest. It does sound really good!

    Also, I see you're currently reading Shadows. I've heard good things about that so I hope you like it! :)

  17. Adrian!!!!
    I love your joke about the quibler! I enjoy books with twists and revelations too! Enjoy all your new books!

  18. I almost want to ignore your whole post about lovely books, and focus simply on your mention of The Quibbler. I won't. But EEEE! :D Just awesome! Made me grin!

    The Golden Lily! <3 I have Deadly Hemlock! Somewhere. I'm really looking forward to reading it, it sounds exciting! I also have Between the Pages and Unrest, but have yet to read both. Too many books!

    Happy reading!

  19. Wow, Awesome haul! I have The Golden Lily waiting to be read!

    Letterbox Love!

  20. High-five for Between the Lines! I'm loving that book already and I agree that there's a stunning fairytale feel to the book and the illustrations are just GORGEOUS! I'll be looking out for your review to see what you thought of it!

    I'm dying to read Hemlock as well - it's so true that if Mimi found it really good, then it MUST be amazing <3

    And Team Human sounds so fascinating although vampires seem to be declining in books.

    Fab haul this week, Brodie! Hope you enjoy them all :)

  21. I hate everyone who got Team Human this week *growls* You absolutely need to read The Demon's Lexicon series, it has my highest recommendation.


    Cait xx

  22. I think saying ADRIAN a million times still wouldn't be enough! But oh goshness, I think you've got the world off to a good start, Brodie! x) <3

    YAY, YOU HAVE HEMLOCK!! *jumps for joy* And I'm squealing like a mad fangirl inside that you mentioned my name as one of the reasons why you're uber-excited to read it -- it makes me feel like a celebrity! :') Gah, thankyousomuch!! Imagine me hugging you. Then tackling you. Then deafening you with my squeals. Wait, maybe the other way around? Either way, prepared to be wooed by the two FANTASTIC boys inside it!

    You Aussies and your amazing mailboxes! I can't wait to read your reviews for every single one -- Team Human especially! Because even though I'm an alien with mind-control powers, I wholly support all of you awesome humanoids! ;) <3

  23. Hope you enjoy the Keepers! It's a great series!

  24. **Sighs** I can't even think about The Golden Lily now without getting a little sad and wishing it were 2013! Lol.

  25. Awesome book haul! So excited that you got a copy of Between the Lines! Can't wait to get my hands on a copy and it sounds like an amazing read! Will keep an eye out for your review. Happy reading!

    Here are my books.

  26. You've got a very strong owl, Brodie, carrying all these books your way ;) A great haul for you this week!

    I so want Team Human! I recently read a great review of it over at Parajunkee's blog :)

  27. I haven't been getting my Quibbler subscription either! :P OOOOOH Team Human! Jealousy, it looks amazing. So does Deadly Hemlock! Happy reading :).

  28. I read Team Human and was semi-disappointed unfortunately =/ I see your reading it now... so I hope you end up liking it!!!

    Otherwise, enjoy all of your books!!! I know you will! <3
