Owl Post #7

 
Inspired by The Story Siren's In My Mailbox, Owl Post allows me to excitedly share all the yummy books I get in the mail each week! Owl's are much faster and more reliable than sneaky postmen, and the common way for magical folk to send and receive letters and parcels. Yes. I went to Hogwarts. Be jealous.


 I borrowed a bunch of mythology books from the library ages ago and this was the one I liked the most. I only got to read parts of it, but it has TONS of content and very detailed, so I decided I needed my own copy!

Also known as Shadow and Bone in the US. I have been DYING to read this! When Sam, Sonia and 560 other bloggers are all singing it's praises, it HAS to be something special, right? Not that you can see in the crappy photo, but the cover looks so pretty in person!

I took to twitter and asked the most vital question: Should I catch-up on this series? Well... the love for these books was overwhelming! I cannot believe there are so many fans, yet I haven't picked up a single book to read. SHOCKING, BRODIE. I will get on these soon!

Was not expecting this at all, since it's not my usual read. But it has some great early reviews and I love me an angel book. I hear this is a spin-off from one of Gena's other series? Think I can easily read this without having read those? Also: Cover. Mmmm!
Contemporary. Bad Boy. Troubled Guy. Touching romance. Really? How can I say no to that?!

I was planning on seeing the movie anyway, but I wasn't sure whether to read this before or after.  Lisa convinced me to wait until I after the movie. Which means... Chris Hemsworth, dear? I'm coming to a cinema near you real soon! Well... not technically near you, but near your rugged huntsman.

What did the owls bring you this week?

  1. Excuse me while I drool over the cover of Wicked Nights. YUM YUM YUM! And what? You got Throne of Glass recently and now you have Gathering Dark (Shadow and Bone) AND Pushing Limits? Lucky Brodie!

  2. Your owl has done it again! Great books. I absolutely LOVED Pushing the Limits (which surprised me a lot) and Before I Wake (which I know you haven't read the entire series as of yet but you need to get crackin' Brodie ASAP because you're missing out on awesome books). As for The Gathering Dark, I own the US copy with the different cover and title and whatnot, and trust me . . . you'll LOVE it! One of the best books at the moment. Happy reading!

  3. Those awesome owls keep bringing you amazing books. Can't wait to see what you think of the movie (Snow White and the Huntsmen) and see if you had the same reaction to the ending as me.

    I have heard so many great things about Pushing the Limits! Can't wait to read your review for it.

    Enjoy!

  5. Oh so ‘The Complete World of Greek Mythology’ is that one... well I say mine is better! I swear there must be a cloned owl with cloned books just being sent to our doors/mailboxes... blah! :P

    Looking forward to reading The Gathering Dark soon. As well as Pushing The Limits. I fee like I’m being saturated with contemporaries at the moment even though these past few weeks it has only been like 3 lol.

    WELL. I did not realise that SAB and TGD were the same book. -__- But yes, I've seen awesome reviews for SAB. Enjoy!

  10. Your owl is amazing, Brodie! I wish I had my own personal owl ;) The Gathering Dark does sound amazing and Pushing the Limits has had a lot of praise given to it - I'm eager to 'meet' the bad boy and read about the complicated romance! You've just reminded me that I NEED to go see Snow White and the Hunstman, it looks so gooooood!

    Fab haul, hope you enjoy all those luuuurve-ly books ;D

  19. I enjoyed SWATH, but thought the romance was under-developed. Chris is swoon worthy, isn't he?! ;)

    Oh, and the Greek mythology book! Sounds really good.

  23. My mom has all sorts of mythology books and I browse through every now and again because they are SO COOL. *dances* PUSHING THE LIMITS AND THE GATHERING DARK? Could your mailbox get anymore awesome? I certainly think NOT. Those are two of my favorites of the year, Brodie! They will treat you well ;-D
