Mailbox Monday and What I'm reading

I've been monitoring in the desert the last couple weeks, so with the trips to San Diego, I've gotten extra reading done, especially of the audiobook persuasion. But the long hours have killed the mood on commenting and the like last week, so should be better this week.

Mailbox Monday is being hosted this March at Diary of an Eccentric

Book trade via Bibliophile group on Shelfari
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children
Loved this when I checked out from the library. The author is supposed to be at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books, so might see if he is doing signings.

Finnikin Of The RockMudboundA Reliable Wife

Barnes and Nobles is having an Engrossing Fiction sale, so got the latter two from it. I'm adoring Finnikin of the Rock on audio from the library, so with the ebook cheap, I had to give in. It's under $4 on Nook and Kindle, so if you like fantasy, check it out.

Wow! You got lots of books. I'm disappointed you gave up on Waterfall. I've got it on my tbr pile and was looking forward to reading it. Looking forward to your thoughts on The Winter King and Starcrossed.

Waterfall seemed like something I would like, but some of the language the main girl uses just irked me. I don't have time for boy crazy girls who talk about "hotties". Not in real life, not in a book. I won't send it back to the library right away, but I'm not sure if I'll read any more.

I have a couple of these books but haven't read them yet, Miss Peregrine and A Reliable Wife. Enjoy all your new books!

First one I saw that has given up on Waterfall. Wonder if it was too "YA"? Winter King is on my radar, and A Reliable Wife I need to read someday also.
I found some goodies this week that you might enjoy: My Mailbox. Have a great day!

Tides of War and Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children sounds very interesting. Hope you enjoy those!

I almost think that I like contemporary set YA fantasy that either has heavy doses of fantasy, like Starcrossed, or focuses on the more social outcast teens, like the Wicked Lovely. Both Wither and Waterfall, I would classify the girls as the more popular set. Its some issue I have and it bleeds into tv likes and dislikes too.

I did. Miss Peregrine was a favorite from last year
