In My Mailbox (2)
In My Mailbox is a weekly event exploring the books received this week and is hosted by Kristi @ The Story Siren. All excerpts from Goodreads unless stated.
Tales of Beedle the Bard - J. K. Rowling
Each of these five tales reveals a lesson befitting children and parents alike: the strength gained with a trusted friendship, the redemptive power of love, and the true magic that exists in the hearts of all of us.
Heart of the Dragon (Supernatural) - Keith R.A. DeCandido
This is a supernatural novel that reveals a previously unseen adventure for the Winchester brothers, from the hit ITV series! Twenty-three years ago, Sam and Dean Winchester lost their mother to a demonic supernatural force. Following the tragedy, their father taught the boys everything about the paranormal evil that lives in the dark corners of America...and how to kill it. Join Sam and Dean on an all-new monster hunt, in this original "Supernatural" novel.
From the library
Touching Darkness (Midnighters #2) - Scott Westerfeld
The Midnighters of Bixby, Oklahoma, know that their town is full of secrets. These five teenagers are the only ones who know about the mysterious hour at midnight when the world freezes, except for them and the creatures that inhabit the darkness.
I've already read this one! The review can be found here.
No way home - Marjorie M. Liu
There's no place like home - just ask young mutant Kiden Nixon. She's survived the hard streets of Manhattan, and she's built a home - and a family - for herself, with her friends Tatiana, Bobby Soul, and his Li'l Bro. But with fewer than 200 mutants left on the planet, Kiden's become a target - and when somebody strikes at one of her friends, Kiden's going to find out just how much farther she can fall!
Untamed (House of Night #4) PC and K Cast
Life sucks when your friends are pissed at you. Just ask Zoey Redbird – she’s become an expert on suckiness. In one week she has gone from having three boyfriends to having none, and from having a close group of friends who trusted and supported her, to being an outcast.
Still waiting for Chosen (House of Night #3) to come in - I ordered it weeks ago so I'll have to hang on to this one until I get that.
