In My Mailbox (3)

I'm excited about these books and it's driving me crazy trying to figure out what I want to read first. I keep changing my reading list. I will have to definately go ahead and read The Awakening (I got that one last week) to keep my mom from pestering me.

Silver Phoenix by Cindy Pon – I love the cover and I can’t wait to dig in!

Faery Rebels : Spell Hunter by R. J. Anderson – I’ve been waiting on this one, what is a girl to do! So many books!

Dayhunter by Jocelynn Drake – I love Jocelynn’s debut novel Nightwalker and this is the follow-up; Here’s the synopsis:

A new day dawns blood red

A master of fire, Mira is the last hope for the world. For centuries she has secretly enforced the history-altering edicts of the Triad. Now she and her unlikely ally—the human vampire hunter, Danaus—have come to Venice, home of the nightwalker rulers. But there is no safety in the ancient city, for the threat of conflict is in the wind . . . with unholy alliances and earth-shattering betrayals taking hideous form in the shadows.

Banished for eons beyond the world's boundaries, the malevolent naturi prepare to feed once again upon a vulnerable earth—and treachery is opening wide the portal that will enable their dread re-emergence. The great battle that has always been Mira's destiny is looming, and she must remain powerful in the face of a shocking revelation: that Danaus, the only creature she dares to trust, is something more than the man he claims to be . . .

Storm Glass by Maria Snyder – Maria is one of my favorite authors and I might have to move this up on my reading list. Here’s the synopsis:

As a glassmaker and a magician-in-training, Opal Cowen understands trial by fire. Now it's time to test her mettle. Someone has sabotaged the Stormdancer clan's glass orbs, killing their most powerful magicians. The Stormdancers—particularly the mysterious and mercurial Kade—require Opal's unique talents to prevent it happening again. But when the mission goes awry, Opal must tap in to a new kind of magic as stunningly potent as it is frightening. And the further she delves into the intrigue behind the glass and magic, the more distorted things appear. With lives hanging in the balance—including her own—Opal must control powers she hadn't known she possessed…powers that might lead to disaster beyond anything she's ever known.

If I Stay by Gayle Forman – I’ve heard great things about this one and can’t wait to get started.

Generation Dead by Daniel Waters – I’ve been wondering about this one so I finally decided to take a chance and see what everyone is talking about.

Lament by Maggie Stiefvater – This one has been on my list for awhile and If you saw my list (over 200 books to get) you can see how I keep missing it.

I’m excited about these books and can’t wait to get started.
I have a few contests going on: Be sure to check it out!
