In My Mailbox (55) & Totally Twilight Re-Cap

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren.

I'm Alison (on the off chance you couldn't guess that from the name of my blog). I review Young Adult novels with a few Middle Grade books and a weekly manga feature.

  1. I really need Daughter of Smoke and Bone. I've heard so many good things! I have Eon and Eona but haven't been able to make time to read them. I'm hoping to get to Eon this month. I'm looking forward to reading your reviews! Here's what I got this week. Enjoy your books!

  5. It'll be interesting to see in what group you fall for the Magicians! I am unfortunately one of those who hated it. Seriously, I wanted to throw the book across the room more than once and don't even know why I finished it. Hope you like it better! If not, at least you also have Daughter of Smoke and Bone and Eon, I've heard great things about them! Happy reading :)

  17. I've not read The Magicians so I can't really comment on that, but the cover doesn't look very 'magicianny' if you know what I mean. Hmm, will be interested to hear what you think.

    I gave Daughter of Smoke and Bone 4 stars this week. It wasn't my favourite read but it was darned good!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I loved DoSaB! It was amazing! And I've been wanting to read Eon for a while, it sounds like a great book. Happy reading! :).

  25. I love Daughter of Smoke and Bone so much! It was a lot better than I was expecting, considering I greatly dislike the cover. I'm ambivalent towards The Magicians, it has interesting themes but oh man, THE MAIN CHARACTER. He's so unlikeable and whiny! Also, it was weird how a lot of the book was lifted pretty much from Narnia or other fantasy novels. I don't know, I do think it's an interesting read but it could have been so much better. Loooove Feist, she is wonderful and I'm glad she's back!

  26. Looks like you got some great books this week! I hope you enjoy them all!

  29. I've only had time to read part of Eon, but I really enjoyed what I have read of it.
