The host for August's Monday Mailbox is '5 Minutes for Books'

Books I Bought

This is progress you are about to witness. No physical books bought. Not a one. Just a couple of teeny tiny e-books for review and maybe a couple purchased...you know...one or two for the road and all that.


E-Books For Review:


Title: Crewel
Author: Gennifer Albin

Thank you, thank you, thank you Macmillan! I requested this on NetGalley a while ago and I was crossing my fingers I would get approved closer to release date and I DID! Can't wait to read this- I have been lusting after it for quite a while.


Title: The Shadow Society
Author: Marie Rutkoski

Again, Macmillan you have rocked my world. I think this book looks awesome and the cover intrigues me. It intrigues me good.



Title: The Time Keeper
Author: Mitch Albom

I love the cover of this novel so much! I did not like 'The Five People You Meet in Heaven' when I read it many years ago, but I am willing to give Mitch a second chance for such a beautiful cover!


E-Books Purchased:

These books were on sale for under £1 so I didn't feel too bad buying them!



Title: A Most Improper Magick
Author: Stephanie Burgis

I really love the cover of this book! I enjoy a nice pale blue on occasion, and I think a children's book set in Regency England about witches sounds awesome.


Title: Faery Tales and Nightmares
Author: Melissa Marr

I have heard good things about this story collection, so I thought I would get it while it's...hot. And cheap.


That was all I got this week. I am happy I controlled myself for once. Let's hope next week is just as meagre.
