In My Mailbox (24)

In My Mailbox is brought to us by The Story Siren and was inspired by Alea.

So these are the books I've gotten in the last two weeks. Not very many, but I'm very very excited about both of them.

For review:

Wintercraft by Jenna Burtenshaw - ARC

Ten years ago Kate Winters' parents were taken by the High Council's wardens to help with the country's war effort. Now the wardens are back...and prisoners, including Kate's uncle Artemis, are taken south on the terrifying Night Train. Kate and her friend Edgar are hunted by a far more dangerous enemy. Silas Dane -- the High Council's most feared man -- recognises Kate as one of the Skilled; a rare group of people able to see through the veil between the living and the dead. His spirit was damaged by the High Council's experiments into the veil, and he's convinced that Kate can undo the damage and allow him to find peace. The knowledge Kate needs lies within Wintercraft -- a book thought to be hidden deep beneath the graveyard city of Fume. But the Night of Souls, when the veil between life and death is at its thinnest, is just days away and the High Council have their own sinister plans for Kate and Wintercraft. To help Artemis, Edgar and herself, Kate must honour her pact with a murderer and come face to face with the true nature of death.

I don't know if you guys remember this, but I WoW'd this a while ago and then I got an email saying that I was being sent it. Apparently, I have, like, contacts or something. How freaking AWESOME is that????? I can't wait to read this.

The Julian Game by Adele Griffin - ARC

New girl Raye Archer is desperate for a way into the In crowd, so when ice-queen Ella Parker chooses her to get back at her ex, the gorgeous Julian Kilgarry, Raye is more than game. Even if it means creating a fake Facebook identity as “Elizabeth” so that she can learn enough about Julian to sabotage him. While a fun and dangerous thrill at first, what Raye hadn’t counted on was falling for Julian herself—and igniting Ella’s rage.

As Raye works to reconcile the temptress Elizabeth with her real-life self, Ella serves up her own revenge. Now it’s Raye who falls victim, as Ella creates an online smear campaign of nasty rumors and trashy photographs. Suddenly notorious, Raye has to find a way out of the web of deceit that she’s helped to build, and back to the relationships that matter.

(Summary from goodreads.)

I WoW'd this, too, and a couple days after that, Adele emailed me and long story short, looky! I have no words to express how excited I am about this.

Okay, so this is everything I've gotten lately.
Peace and cookies,
Laina
