Owl Post #13


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.

Ebooks:

I have been wanting to read this book for so long! Every review I've seen appear in my Google reader has been gushing, so when I saw that my library was getting it in, I wasted no time in snatching it up.

SPARK SPARK SPARK SPARK!!! There is strong evidence to suggest I've had multiple make-out sessions with the Gabriel of down-under (because doesn't he look so much hotter on the AUS cover? if I took better photo's, you'd totally see that), but until that video footage leaks, I admit to nothing. By the way, did you guys know I love this series?

This was a nice surprise! I didn't even know Australia was publishing this soon, nor had I seen the awesome cover art. This sounds dark, twisted and compelling!

Both this and Venom have different Australian cover art, which you can see a very small version of if you venture to NetGalley. The Darkest Minds is one I've been anticipating for awhile, so I hope to curl up with it soon!

Italy! Historical! Killers! Secret societies! Forbidden romance! Mysterious artist! Yes! Yes! Yes!

Ever since I read Sam's review of this, I've been dying to read it. It sounds effing AMAZING and creepy and VAMPIRE APOCALYPSE IN AN AMISH COMMUNITY. Seriously.  If it's not on your book radar already, PUT IT ON THERE. I am so excited to read it!

Excellent early reviews, an intriguing protagonist with a unique-compared-to-other-YA-books condition and a murder mystery. Reason enough to be excited? I think so.

What did those fluffy owls deliver to you this week?

  1. Eeeeep!! The False Prince!! I've been meaning to get it..I saw copies at the bookstore but..but..I had to restrain myself. :( TBR is threatening to leave me if I pick up one more book.. *cries* You can imagine the scenario, yes? Also: Spark!! Me needs to borrow Storm from Kai first before I read this. All of the ebooks sound so darn good! :) Hope you like them all. Also - just noticed that you're now reading The False Prince. Hope you liked The Lost Prince!

  2. A&U didn’t send me Spark :( I feel so left out. More sad faces coming... :( :( :( :( :( :(

    I do believe The False Prince is going to be published down here in the coming months. I’ve been meaning to get around to that one. You beat me at everything :( More sad faces... :( :( (Not as many as above.)

    I too got The Darkest Minds from netgalley... WHICH I FORGOT TO PUT IN THIS WEEK’S POST. Urghh! I always forget netgalley books. Same with Falling Kingdoms... Ack!

  5. I've been unsure about Blind Spot recently, but I might wait to read some more reviews before requesting it. I can't wait to hear what you think of The Hallowed Ones, Venom and The Darkest Minds! The Aussie cover for TDM is SO gorgeous! :D

    Enjoy!

  6. I love your cover of Spark so much more than the one we have. I still haven't read this yet and must fix this right away!

    I have been hearing epic things about The Hallowed Ones. I hear it's super creepy and really good.

    I love the cover of Venom! I have it sitting on my TBR shelf in my closet and hopefully will get to it soon.

    Sounds like those owls were super busy this week, but they brought you some amazing reads. I can't wait to read your reviews!

  7. The Aussie covers for Storm and Spark are SO much better than the US ones. I guess it goes with my theory of Australians being hotter in general. OH MY GOSH, I LURVE the Elemental series! The Merrick brothers are the bestest.

  8. Yay for Gabriel in that AUS cover! He is HOT in there! lol. Sam's review of The Hallowed Ones had me convinced to read it too. Hope you enjoy all these books, Brodie. Happy reading! :)

  9. BRODIE I AM SO JEALOUS! I requested The Darkest Minds and I couldn't read it because I live in the US! :( I need to move to Australia ASAP, don't I? ;) I hope you enjoy it though and I can't wait to see what you think of The Hallowed Ones, Venom, Blind Spot, and SPARK! I liked Storm better, but I think I was the strange exception, so enjoy your wonderful haul, dearie!<3

  17. Wow, wonderful haul of books you got there, Brodie! Your fluffy little owls have done a fine job. Venom, The Darkest Minds, and Blind Spot all look exceptionally good! I can't wait for them all. :) I'm also currently reading The Hallowed Ones, and it is a perfec blend of suspense, Amish culture, creeeeeepiness and gory bits. I love it.

    Happy reading, Brodie! :)

  18. When I was reading Storm, I begrudgingly liked Gabriel. Of course my favorite was Nick and then Michael... and then Gabriel! But I feel like Spark would change my mind =))

    Great haul, Brodie! Happy reading!

    Followed~
