In My Mailbox (4)


Wings by Aprilynne Pike
Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers
Pub. Date: May 2009
Age Range: 12
294pp

Synopsis
Laurel was mesmerized, staring at the pale things with wide eyes. They were terrifyingly beautiful—too beautiful for words.

Laurel turned to the mirror again, her eyes on the hovering petals that floated beside her head. They looked almost like wings.

In this extraordinary tale of magic and intrigue, romance and danger, everything you thought you knew about faeries will be changed forever.


I've been waiting on this, I've heard great things and can't wait to get started.



Season by Sarah MacLean
Publisher: Scholastic, Inc.
Pub. Date: March 2009
Age Range: 12
352pp

Synopsis
Seventeen year old Lady Alexandra is strong-willed and sharp-tongued -- in a house full of older brothers and their friends, she had to learn to hold her own. Not the best makings for an aristocratic lady in Regency London. Yet her mother still dreams of marrying Alex off to someone safe, respectable, and wealthy. But between ball gown fittings, dances, and dinner parties, Alex, along with her two best friends, Ella and Vivi, manages to get herself into what may be her biggest scrape yet.

When the Earl of Blackmoor is mysteriously killed, Alex decides to help his son, the brooding and devilishly handsome Gavin, uncover the truth. But will Alex's heart be stolen in the process? In an adventure brimming with espionage, murder, and other clandestine affairs, who could possibly have time to worry about finding a husband? Romance abounds as this year's season begins!


I've heard a lot of people talking about this one and wanted to give it a try.

  5. You had a great week with both books. I enjoyed Wings, it was little slow at first but really grew on me. The Season was also very good. I loved those regency romances and it had a bit of mystery and murder in it also.
