In My Mailbox #15 - Armstrong, del Franco, and Covington, Oh My!






In My Mailbox was started by The Story Siren. It's a way to share and highlight all the books we receive, even if we don't review them. l share books that I buy, that I receive for review, get from the library, borrow from a friend, etc.

This past week was an AWESOME book week for me. The book fairy was very, very kind to me. :)

Won


I won this from the Dream site; it's a great way to learn about new books, and win them. I enjoy this series, so I jumped at the chance to win it. I still can't believe I actually did. 

Gifted

The author is a friend of mine and when I mentioned that Amazon didn't have it yet, she emailed it to me. How nice was that?  :)

Review


SQUEEEEE! I am so happy, and surprised, that I got this. I love Kelley's writing and the first book in this YA series, The Gathering, was wonderful. 


This is such a good urban fantasy series. And, it's set in Boston MA, just up the highway from me. :D


Not one of my fave series but one I do enjoy very much. Has from The Book Pushers introduced me to Caine's Weather Warden's series and this is an offshoot. They are both good.

I had an awesome book week. :) How was yours?

  1. Ooh, good win on the Linda Robertson books. That's a great series!

    My book gathering this week included: library, e-books, and my "big count" for the Read Your Own Books Challenge (yes, there are 62 books on my shelves that I've never read! Yikes.)

    1. Alison, I strongly recommend her books, adult and YA. The two YA series are set in the same world as her adult series but all three series can be read independently.
