In My Mailbox

It's been another great week for books. But then it seems it's always a great week for books. Thanks go, as ever, to The Story Siren for hosting this meme. The books? Not many this week, but oh so good

1. Torment by Lauren Kate
Sequel to the wonderful Fallen. Started it the second it made it's way into my hands. Gorgeous, gorgeous cover.

2. The Extraordinary Secrets of April, May, and June by Robin Benway
Three sisters share a magical, unshakeable bond in this witty novel from the author of Audrey, Wait! Around the time of their parents’ divorce, sisters April, May, and June recover special powers from childhood — powers that come in handy navigating the hell that is high school. Powers that help them cope with the hardest year of their lives. But could they have a greater purpose? April, the oldest and a bit of a worrier, can see the future. Middle-child May can literally disappear. And baby June reads minds — everyone’s but her own. When April gets a vision of disaster, the girls come together to save the day and reconcile their strained family. They realize that no matter what happens, powers or no powers, they’ll always have each other. Because there’s one thing stronger than magic: sisterhood.

3. And I finally bought
Spirit Bound by Richelle Mead.
Now I love this series, am a huge fan, but didn't much care for Blood Promise. So wasn't sure I would read Spirit Bound. But I read only good things about the book so here it is now gracing my shelves.
She failed to kill him when she had the chance. And now her worst fears are about to come true. Dimitri has tasted her blood, and now he is hunting her. And this time he won't rest until Rose joins him... forever.

What did you get this week?
