In My Mailbox (49)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. I have included links to Goodreads should you want more information on the books.

For Review:

Received an ARC of Radiance by Alyson Noel from the publisher, via Shelf Awareness. As soon as I saw it was by Alyson, I knew that I had to request a copy!

Riley has crossed the bridge into the afterlife—a place called Here, where time is always Now. She has picked up life where she left off when she was alive, living with her parents and dog in a nice house in a nice neighborhood. When she’s summoned before The Council, she learns that the afterlife isn’t just an eternity of leisure. She’s been assigned a job, Soul Catcher, and a teacher, Bodhi, a possibly cute, seemingly nerdy boy who’s definitely hiding something. They return to earth together for Riley’s first assignment, a Radiant Boy who’s been haunting a castle in England for centuries. Many Soul Catchers have tried to get him to cross the bridge and failed. But all of that was before he met Riley . . .

From the Library:

Red Hot Fury by Kasey macKenzie is one of the books I already had on hold at the library, so my book ban and the August Read Your Own Book Challenge don't apply. It has immunity! Honest! :D

As a Fury, Marissa Holloway belongs to an Arcane race that has avenged wrongdoing since time immemorial. As Boston's Chief Magical Investigator for the past five years, she's doing what she was born to: solving supernatural crimes. It's far from business as usual when the body of one of Riss's sister Furies washes up in Boston harbor. Riss discovers that the corpse's identity has been magically altered, but as soon as she reports her findings, she's immediately - and inexplicably - suspended from her job. Then a human assassin makes an attempt on her life, and Riss starts to realize that someone may be trying to stir up strife between mortals and Arcanes.


Isn't Eeyore the cutest thing you've ever seen? Stopped off at Kohl's this morning, and he's one of the Kohl's Cares featured plush toys. I adore Eeyore and since he is book related, figured I would include him this week. :)

Get anything awesome in your mailbox this week?
