Owl Post #24

Inspired by The Story Siren's In My Mailbox, Owl Post allows us bloggers to showcase the books we've bought, won or received throughout the week and is hosted by Brodie over at Eleusinian Mysteries. We all know that the Owl Post is the fastest way to send and receive mail and they certainly make me happy every time they drop a book off.
Hello lovelies!
It's been a while since I've done an Owl Post--lots going happening on the blog and in life with Christmas coming up! Here's what I've received the last few weeks!
For Review:
From Bloomsbury Australia......
- Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow by Jessica Day George
I wasn't expecting this book but I do love fairy-tale re-telling type stories :)
- A Breath of Frost by Alyxandra Harvey
I'm an Alyxandra Harvey fan, having adored her Drake Chronicles and all the other books I hers I've read. Very much looking forward to reading her latest book!
- After Eden by Helen Douglas
I wasn't expecting this book, but I have read it already on a whim and it's not too bad--easy, quick read. Review to come.
............Thank you guys! 
From Pan Macmillan......
- Shadowfell by Juliet Marillier
I'll be participating in a blog tour coming up for the 3rd book in this series and considering I do have a copy of book two, I thought it was time I read the first on
..........Thank you Eve :)
From Simon & Schuster Australia......
- Eternity by Elizabeth Miles
 I wasn't expecting a copy of this book seeing as I haven't read the rest of the series. I'd like to change that one day though.
- Searching for Someday by Jennifer Probst
I'd never heard of this book before a copy turned up in my mailbox, but I do like the sound of it. Hope I can squeeze it into my reading schedule at some point!
- Twisted by K.A. Robinson  
I do have a copy of the first book in this series, Torn, but I just haven't had the chance to read it yet. Maybe one day.....
........Thank you guys!
.....From Scholastic Australia.....
- Twelve by James Phelan
I haven't read the first book in this series, nor had I ever heard of it before I found myself with a copy. It's still up in the air as to whether I'll ever read it.....
- Skull In The Wood by Sandra Greaves
Not sure what to think of this on--both the back, and Goodreads don't give too much away. Anyone read or know anything about it? 
- Catching Fire: The Official Illustrated Movie Companion by Kate Egan
This was a really lovely surprise--the pictures are fantastic and it's a really well put together picture book; simply beautiful.
Movie Pass:
And because she's simply beyond awesome (and knew I hadn't seen the movie yet!) the fabulous publicist Sarah from Scholastic sent my a double pass to see Catching Fire while I'm on Christmas holidays. Thank you Sarah--I'm SUPER grateful <3
....Thank you to Sarah and the team at Scholastic Australia!
I Bought: 
- The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
I've heard nothing but beautiful, and heartbreakingly so, things about this book and with the movie just around the corner, I figured now was the perfect time to pick myself up a copy :)
- The Host by Stephenie Meyer
Twilight kick started my love for reading once more, but I've put off reading this book for a while. Finally decided to pick up a copy ($3 in a second hand bookstore in excellent condition!) after watching the movie. I'm reading this right now and O....M.....G! It's amazing! I'm in love.
- Wait for You by J. Lynn
- Trust in Me by J. Lynn
I've been looking for the next great NA book to read after speeding through most of Abbi Glines books and Cora Carmack's, as well as a bunch of others. Although I wasn't a fan of Jennifer L. Armentrout's Covenant series, I ADORE her Lux series and am hoping to love these too!
I Won:
- Legend by Marie Lu
I was really excited to win a copy of this thanks to the lovely Natalie from Book Lovers Life! I've heard so many great things about Legend and am looking forward to reading it for myself. Thank you so much Nat!!
And that's me!
What book goodies has everyone received lately?!?


  1. WOW. Lots of books. You certainly will be very busy this Christmas season.

    Books of Love

  2. So glad your reading The Host! I read it earlier this year, and that was probably my best decision of 2013.

  3. Great haul this week! And Legend is really good!
