In My Mailbox~Werewolves And Vampires

I'm really excited about getting my hands on both of these books and not just because they involve werewolves and vampires, though that definitely doesn't hurt! These authors are both exceptionally good. Blood Promise by Richelle Mead is book four in the Vampire Academy series. Don't let the title fool you though, it is anything but clique and it's the best vampire series I've read in a long time. Not to mention the main character Rose is unforgettable and wonderfully flawed, the kind of character you root for and cry for.

Many of you may remember my feature of Leah Cypess as April's featured debut author. Well I've finally got my hands on her book Mistwood and I'm so excited! I'm not going to lie, I've peeked at it and her writing has threatened to suck me in despite the fact that I'm reading another book right now. I can tell I'm going to love it.

On a side note I have to shout out congratulations to a friend of mine, Robin Mellom who just sold her young adult novel currently titled (these things change during editing!) Ditched to Disney-Hyperion. Big kudos to her agent Jill Corcoran as well.

  6. You won't be disapointed Olleymae! Vampire Academy is one of my favorite series, and I'm not even a big reader of vampire books. And from what I've snuck of Mistwood, it's written so well it's almost like poetry!
