Owl Post #16

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.

Since I haven't done an Owl Post in a while, these are my books from the past couple of weeks:

This week:
The Skeleton Key by Tara Moss
Tara Moss is a name I hear quite often, but I generally associate her with adult crime fiction, a genre I don't usually indulge in. I hear this series has hints of supernatural though, so maybe I should check out the first two books?

After reading Keertana's amazing review, I have been DYING DYING DYING to read this! Did I mention: DYING?! Fortunately, I have an INCREDIBLE library. So excited to start it!

This was a surprise when I opened the package, because it's not often Australia releases books in hardcover, so it must be something special. I hadn't heard of it before, but after reading the summary and first few pages, I am really intrigued to continue! Hopefully I can get to it soon.

What have the owls delivered to you this week?


  1. My library is pretty awesome too. xD

    Great owl post!

  2. AAAHHH! SUCH an amazing haul this week, Brodie! I'm so excited you got a copy of The Dark Light - I really hope you enjoy it! I know I recommended it to Sam from Realm of Fiction as well and she wasn't as blown away by it as I was, but I sincerely do hope you love it! :) Also...THE DIVINERS! Yet another one of my FAVORITES! I'm so jealous of the Aussie cover of yours and I love you really enjoy it, dear. It thoroughly entertained me and I'm already looking for an excuse to re-read it! ;) I've heard a lot of things about your other novels, but not having read Kami Garcia, Rachel Caine, Becca Fitzpatrick, or Ally Condie's previous works, I doubt I'll pick them up. I really hope they're all fantastic conclusions though as I know those can be especially tricky to write. Anyway, glad to see you back and happy reading, dearest! :D (Also, thanks for the link!)

  3. I never knew before that Australia doesn't often produce hardcover books. Do they produce paperback instead? if so, I love australia because paperbacks are my favorite type of book layout. :0

    Enjoy all your new books Brodie!!!!!!!!!! I started the Dark Light awhile ago and found it entertaining, must start reading it again when i have time.
    Ketchup cloud- love the name!

  4. *fans self* that is a buttload-mother-of-awesome load of books!! I've heard such great things for Breathe, The Diviners, and The Dark Light! What an epic pile of books! Have fun reading, darling! :)

  5. THE DARK LIGHT!!!!!
    Oooh Ketchup Clouds sounds pretty interesting :DD AND HARDCOVER! IT MUST BE SPECIAL INDEED<3

  6. Yayyyy you got The Diviners! *happy dance* I really hope you love it, Brodie - I think you will. :) I fell unconditionally in love with it though, so maybe I'm biased. ;) The rest of your books look intriguing too, especially the Tara Moss book with that lovely cover! Great haul and happy reading, my dear. :)

  7. *o* So much awesomeness! You got Breathe! And Reached! And The Diviners! GAHH, everyone has loved The Diviners so far and now I really want to read it and just oh my god, I'm in love with the spine <3 Is that weird? And eeeeep! I'm so jealous of your hardcover of Ketchup Clouds! I got the ARC so it's in paperback, therefore not as special :S But whatever, I hope you enjoy all the FABULOUS books you got these past few weeks! :D

  8. Oh, I loved Breathe! I read it in a day which is pretty unusual for me!

  9. You got a whole lot of awesome books. I really want The Diviners. I also got The Skeleton Key and hear the series is great. I have them all, but haven't started reading them yet. Haven't heard of Ketchup Clouds, but like the cover. Please come by and check out My IMM

  10. Great haul! I see many books from my own wishlist or TBr pile! Great picks.

    My books.

  11. I noticed you get paperbacks. Is it because there aren't that many hardcover ones in Australia or do you just prefer them? I want to read Finale so bad and The Dark Light has been on my TBR list foreveeeerrr, so definitely need to check that one out. Hope you enjoy and happy reading :)

  12. Unfortunately me and Finale didn't get along but I hope you like it! After reading Sarah's epic, glowing review, I'm looking forward to giving The Diviners a go. Plus, the cover! O__O My goodness, I LOVE. We so got the prettiest cover of them all. Booya! I Made Lattes for a Love God looks like such a cute read. Ooh, The Dark Light! And I can't believe your library has a copy. Your library sure has a good and current! This makes me want to come visit and browse 'la books.

    Awesome book haul, B! ♥

  13. Oohhh Reached! Can't wait to see how that ends. Finale was great and I hope to read Breathe soon!

  14. I just finished reading Bitter Bllod and it may just be my favourite in the series so far! Loved mc's growth as a character and Myrnin's POV! :D

  15. Breathe & The diviners! I hear great things about them and I'm so excited to try them out :D Great haul!

  16. BRO! DIE! (That's not die, by the way, it's "dee". Just so you don't think I'm giving you death threats, I'm just excited by your books). BITTER! BLOOD! It was SO good, but I believe you haven't started this series yet? You must! Must, must, must! It's amazing! Please read this series, at at least the first book! For me? I'll read whatever you want me to read if you read Glass Houses. Promise!

    Finale! Breathe! Diviners! Ketchup Clouds! All books I have received over the past few weeks (or months, in the case of Diviners) that I'm looking forward to or intrigued about because of reviews! Looking forward to your reviews of these :)

    And Severed?! YOU HAVE SEVERED?! Damn, I dipped out this time, it seems. Oh well! Happy reading, lovely!

  17. The Skeleton Key cover is so fabulous, I really want to read this book straight away! ;) Heard rave reviews on The Dark Light as well, can not wait to read it. Such a great book haul, Brodie!

  18. Oh wowza, that is some book haul! I want everything there, of course (even though I already have a lot of it!) :D I can't wait to see what you think of Bitter Blood. I am reading that one next and am super excited about it.

    Enjoy, Brodie!


    OK, Ketchyp Clouds is PRETTY. But I keep thinkng it must taste like... tomato sauce and be kind of sticky and weird :P

  20. AHHH! SO many good books this week Brodie! I would go and mention all of the ones I'm jealous of... but I'd be listing pretty much every book on here!

    Hope you enjoy all of your new books, and I'm glad that your back and posting again!

  21. Girl, you got some AWESOME books! I have to say, I'm so curious about Reached! I didn't enjoy Matched all that much - it just felt flat to me so I haven't read book two. But I want too at some point. And Breathe is an amazing read. Hope you enjoy them all.

  22. Awesome haul this week Brods. Those owls are so good to you!
    I LOVED The Diviners--one of my faves this year. Looking forward to hearing your thought! Plus, I'm dying to get my hands on a copy of The Dark Light! So hope you love this!!

    Happy reading baby girl <3

  23. always jealous of your hauls....amazing....there's breathe, beautiful redemption, finale, diviners....
