Owl Post #11

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 was one of the bloggers who participated in the cover and excerpt reveal for White Lines early last month, and the publishers were kind enough to send a review copy! It's not out until next year, but I'm in the mood to read it so I'll be starting this next. I have high hopes for this!

I hear this is a mix between Downton Abbey and Gossip Girl? Neither show I watch, so that really doesn't help me much, but who doesn't enjoy a little scandal mixed with their historical every so often? Okay, maybe you in the far corner...

This was a surprise review copy, I hadn't even heard of it or the author before (a fellow Aussie!). It's a very quick read, I finished it this afternoon. I think it's probably more suited toward a younger audience, though. I should have my review up soon.

What have the owls delivered to you this week?
Need the specifics so I can have my owls come steal your goodies.

  5. Awesome haul, Brodie! I'm looking forward to seeing what you think of White Lines! Wentworth Hall doesn't really sound like my cup of tea, but I'm intrigued by Witch. Though I'm generally not a fan of books for younger readers. Happy reading!

  10. Small but sweet haul, Brodie! I'm looking forward to hearing what you think of Wentworth Hall. I didn't pull through with it (well, it was during a depressing time where I was not being tolerant to anything) but White Lines looks great! <3 Happy reading this week!

    1. Hey I just read you comment and wanted to respond about Warner lol I tried to fight his smexiness but he was soooo sweet and swoontastic in Unravel Me. His complexities and evils were explained and I couldn't resist and fight it any longer!!! Good luck! I don't think anyone will be able to resist him in it.

  15. Oooh I'm envious. ;) I hope you enjoy your goodies, Brodie! Wentworth Hall in particular sounds like my perfect guilty pleasure- less in quality, more fun and crazy shenanigans, I'm thinking. Happy reading and thank you for sharing. :)

  16. Nice haul, hun! I can't wait to read White Lines, I wish it was out sooner than 2013! And Wentworth Hall sounds so good, I <3 Downton

    And Fiona has been writing books on witchcraft for years so it's cool that she's now written a YA book!

    I'm just going to keep staring at it and stroking my computer screen, don't mind me. The background is all swirly and the font is all magical and you have an awesome new bio and I JUST LOVE IT SO MUCH <3 <3 <3

    Ahem. Back to books. White Lines! I haven't heard much of that (I guess not since the release date is so far away) but I'm excited to hear what you think!

    Wentworth Hall! Scandalous history is THE BEST KIND. I like some drama with my facts, thanks. And LOL, there are shows you don't watch? :O

    Aaaand I think I'm usually pretty up for MG books so maybe Witch will be something I enjoy? I can't wait to see your review for it! :D

    AND BRODIE, I MISSED YOUUUUUUUU! *attacks [with hugs [and other more questionable things]]* (wait, it was me that was gone, not you.... oh well, shhh)
