In My Mailbox (4)

In My Mailbox is a meme created by The Story Siren where bloggers can talk about which books they have received over the week.

DESTINED by P.C. and Kristin Cast
Goodreads description: Breathing hard, Aurox stood there over the bodies of his vanquished enemies. He turned to Neferet.

"Very good," she said in her emotionless voice. "Let us leave this place before the authorities descend."

Aurox followed her. He walked heavily, his hooves gouging furrows in the dirty alley.

Weak. He felt weak. And more. There was something else.

"What is it?" She snapped at him when he hesitated before entering the car again.

"I do not know. I feel--"

She laughed. "You don't feel at all. You're obviously overthinking this."

"Yes, Priestess." Aurox got in the car and let the world speed past him.
I do not think. I do not feel. I am a weapon.

Zoey is finally home where she belongs, safe with her Guardian Warrior, Stark, by her side, and preparing to face off against Neferet -- which would be a whole lot easier if the High Council saw the ex-High Priestess for what she really is. Kalona has released his hold on Rephaim, and, through Nyx's gift of a human form, Rephaim and Stevie Rae are finally able to be together -- if he can truly walk the path of the Goddess and stay free of his father's shadow.

But there are new forces at work at the House of Night. An influx of humans, including Lenobia's handsome horse whisperer, threatens their precarious stability. And then there's the mysterious Aurox, a jaw-droppingly gorgeous teen boy who is actually more -- or possibly less -- than human. Only Neferet knows he was created to be her greatest weapon. But Zoey can sense the part of his soul that remains human, the compassion that wars with his Dark calling. And there's something strangely familiar about him . . .

Will Neferet's true nature be revealed before she succeeds at extinguishing Light? And will Zoey be able to touch Aurox's humanity in time to protect them all? Find out what's destined in the next thrilling chapter of the House of Night series.

My goodness! I am so excited to start this!!!

What's in *your* mailbox this week?

1. What are you currently reading?
Goodreads descripition: Zoey Redbird is the youngest High Priestess in House of Night history and is the only person – vamp or fledgling – that can stop the evil Neferet from raising all kinds of immortal trouble. And she might just have a chance if she wasn’t so busy being dead. Well, dead is too strong a word. Stevie Rae knows she can bring her BFF back from her unscheduled va-cay in...see more.

2. What did you recently finish reading?

3. What do you think you'll read next?

Booking Through Thursday (2)

Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme hosted HERE. Check it out and join in!

This weeks question is: If you could get a sequel for any boo, what would it be?

My answer to that is: Hades by Alexandra Adornetto.

This is the sequel to her novel, Halo. It came out August 30, but at the time I didn't have any money so I didn't get it. Of course, now I can't find it anywhere. What really makes this all great is the fact that I can't shop online, so... I guess I'll have to wait until the library gets it.

Waiting On Wednesday (3)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine where bloggers can discuss which books they are most anxious to read. Plus, this awesome button was created by Lindsay at The Violet Hour.

I know it’s only Tuesday but I really, really, really want to share this with you guys!

Most of you have probably already read the House of Night series. I’ve re-read those books, like, so many times. I’m excited for the newest book, Destined, to come out on October 25 (I think that will be my WoW next week…), but what I really can’t wait for is the HoN comic book.

I love comic books/graphic novels. They’re really great if you’ve read the actual book first, because then whenever you want to re-read it, all you have to do is get the shortened version from the comic book.

I’m confused though. I saw the preview for volume #1 ( Click here ) and it apparently starts out at the beginning of Betrayed, which is the second book in the series. I don’t know why they don’t start with Marked.

Anyways, this comic comes out November 9, and Volume #2 comes out December 14. They’re both super cheap. As in, less than $5. This makes me happy.

You can pre-order here.

To e-read, Or not to e-read. That is the question.

Guys! I am on the edge right now. Should I get an e-reader? (Or rather, ask for one for Christmas?) I love having the actual book in my hand, but e-readers seem so convenient! I just don't know what to do! Help me decide please!! Comment with why I should(or shouldn't) get one.
